Christmas is Here

Before you know, we'll be sitting around the tree opening gifts and spending time with family.   Family is important to most people and more so during the Christmas Season.

At Buffalo, we are a church filled with families.  Many of the families have been a part of Buffalo for most of its 240 years.  That is commitment!!  It is amazing to hear the stories and see old pictures of family members that have long moved on but were integral parts of God's work in McCormick.  

Some families have not been a part of Buffalo for that long but have made a mark as well.

Family is like that.  Members young and old are used but God to do his will in our community.  Families that formed the foundation for the church are just as important as those that carry on the work of God's Kingdom!

Buffalo itself is a family of families.  We are part of the family of God - brothers and sisters - young and old.   We are blessed to be joined by our faith and the work of building God's kingdom in McCormick County!

Over the next several weeks our Buffalo Family will be celebrating together through events at the church and events where we will be out in the community. I want to see our family serve and love each other through this Christmas Season.  Please come out and join us.  If you aren't a part of a church consider checking out Buffalo during this Christmas season.  Please check our calendar for times and dates of events.

I especially want to invite you to our Christmas Candlelight service on December 21st at 6 pm.  It is going to be a special time of singing and worship of our Saviour.

Have a Merry Christmas and may God Bless you!
Pastor Sid

VBS 2015 - Was Off the Map!!

To say that we had an awesome time at VBS would be an understatement!  It was a great week!

We sang, danced, got wet, popped balloons, laughed, learned about missions (from that loud Missions Man), and learned a lot about our Guide - Jesus.

It was planned and executed by an amazing team lead by Wanda Lewis, Bo Willis, Darby Brown, Wendy Willis and LeAnne Boddie.  The team that they assembled for teaching, decorating, activities, and assisting did an awesome job.

But the best thing about VBS was the children - the most noisy, sometimes smelly, mischievous, (did I already say noisy), fun and amazing group of kids!!  It was incredible to see the love and friendships that formed.  From the youngest to the oldest, they enjoyed every minute.

That's one of the things that I like about Buffalo Church - we place a major emphasis on our children, youth and young adults.  Jesus said, "Let the children come to me and do not hinder them, for to such belongs the kingdom of Heaven." (Matthew 19:14) This is a verse that teaches us an important message - children can show us how to love and know the kingdom of God.  Their unhindered, explosive, mischievous, noisy love for life and Jesus is what Jesus is talking about!  It is a pursuit of joy that is contagious and sometimes up-ending of normal, daily life (if you are a parent then you know what I am talking about)

May we be joyful, contagious, noisy, unhindered, explosive and very, very childlike in our God-seeking off the map kind of life!!
