As economies tighten, our church in Castle Rock, Colorado has really had its hands full trying to keep our widows and single mothers off of welfare and their children out of the public schools. Lately, we have had significant challenges with a number of our folks being under-employed or unemployed.
As true pastors and shepherds in Christ's church, we want to taken appropriate responsibility for these needs. Over the years, we have employed hundreds of thousands of dollars in our church for the care of the poor.
Sometimes we wonder what we would do if President Obama doesn’t save us, and things get even worse. Are we properly addressing a socialist mentality that creeps into our communities? Are we preparing now for the failure of social security in 2035?
We are struggling as we try to revive a meaningful diaconate in a socialist world. Now with socialist medicine fast descending upon us, we feel the time has never been more important for caring elders and deacons to come together and discuss biblical charitable systems, economics, and medical care.
Are these issues important to your elders and deacons in your church? Are they coming up in conversations? If so, you may be interested in a Church Leadership Conference sponsored in March of 2010.
Generations with Vision is sponsoring a Church Leadership Conference on Economics issues (as part of the Family Economics conference) in Castle Rock, Colorado on March 5th and 6th, 2010. The Leadership conference takes place on Friday, March 5th. We'll hear from several pastors (R.C. Sproul, Jr. and Scott Brown) on these things, and there will be good time for discussion. Also, we will provide a lunch for the pastors, elders, and deacons attending.
We need your RSVP'S. If you would need a scholarship to make the registration cost, please let me know. Early registration deadline for the conference is December 12, 2009. Check out the conference at www.conference2010.com.
May God bless you as you seek to fulfill the James 1:27 and 1 Timothy 5 mandates in your churches.
Assuming there will be no Great Depression, the average social security check will be cut by 24% within about ten years. But how could a widow survive on $1150 a month? But there is good news here. With the end of social security, churches will be able return to their obligation to care for the widows, instead of turning them over to the state. This program is about Ultimate Prepping — how to prepare spiritually, economically, and ecclesiastically for Great Depression 2.0.
This program includes:
