Kevin Cushing

Kevin was a pastor’s kid, and quickly came to understand that loving God was the most important choice he could make in his life. As he got older he came to appreciate that a relationship with Jesus Christ was not only spiritually fulfilling, but intellectually and emotionally satisfying as well. Professionally, Kevin started off acting on stage and in media, and he wrote and directed some Christian films and documentaries when he was a young man.  He spent many years in motion picture and television development, and then as a marketing executive at a successful dotcom. Throughout his career, Kevin has maintained a close relationship and love for the local church and has been a sought-after speaker as well as writer of devotions and dramatic material used in worship.

A MESSAGE FROM KEVIN

RIPE FOR HARVEST Welcome to October and the last quarter of the year!  I’ve always loved this time of year, when the air is a little cooler, the sky is clearer and the sunlight is a little more golden.  It still feels like there is plenty of time left to catch up on goals for 2022, but the holidays are peeking at us just over the horizon. I’ve really been enjoying the sermon series we started in September, and I’ve gained more from studying these women of the Bible than I ever expected.  If you haven’t been with us lately, we have been in a series on Sunday mornings called WOMEN WHO MADE A DIFFERENCE, looking at different female characters who stand out from Scripture, and taking them in historical order as we encounter them in the books of the Bible.  So not only do we get to study some fascinating and faithful personalities, but it is like a sped up trip through Bible history. And then on Wednesday nights, we are having our weekly Bible study in room 10 and we have begun a review of the book of Acts.  Of particular interest in this study is to learn more about the personality and work of the Holy Spirit, who is sort of the main character of that book, just as Jesus is the person at the center of the gospels.  I hope you plan to join us soon at 7pm on a Wednesday night.  And bring your Bible!  (Please be aware that on Weds October 12th we will not be meeting, as I will be out of town.) I so appreciate the contribution that Trent and Judy continue to make in leading us musically each Sunday.  It makes such a difference to our worship to enthrone God with our praise  before we allow him to speak to us. This is the harvest season, and I believe God would like to reap a harvest among us.  A harvest of our devotion, a harvest of our commitment, a harvest of our very lives.  I encourage you to approach our times together prayerfully and to prepare your hearts to meet him each time we assemble, whether for Sunday worship or for Wednesday study. If you have any needs or struggles, questions or conflicts, and you would like prayer or encouragement for any situation you are facing, please reach out to me so we can spend some time seeking God’s direction together. Thank you for going down this road with me, and let us learn to lean on each other as we pursue God and let him shape us into the people he meant for us to be. In Christian Love – Kevin
