Into The Noise

Services

We worship at 10am on sunday mornings at 233 N Appleton Street, Appleton. Worship is also streamed live from our Facebook page. We also gather at 7pm on Wednesday evenings for Midweek Services. The Men in the fellowship meet on the 1st & 3rd Wednesdays of the month and the Women meet on the 2nd & 4th Wednesdays. We have no dress code and we have classes for kids from toddler up to Middle School. Services are typically about an hour and 20 minutes long and include some singing, a message, a chance to take communion and often an opportunity to participate or share.

Greetings to all who read this blog post.  I have no earthly idea how many blogs exist in the world.  The myriad of subject matters and sources must be quite something to behold.  There is a lot of "noise" in the world of online messaging.  The days of just a limited number of reputable journalists who had trained at a university and who were tightly fact checked and reported to an editor are increasingly far behind us now.  Early bloggers were trail blazers as were those who were pioneers upon the scene of creating content for YouTube, Facebook and TikTok.  It is into that noise that I present this, my very first blog post.  What could I contribute?  I am convinced that this is the wrong question to ask.  What I offer is based more upon what is needed and it is backed by a simple truth.  In Isaiah 55:11, the prophet recites a declaration from God to all who are thirsty,  "as the rain and snow come down from heaven, and do not return to it without first watering the earth and making it bud and flourish, (a pretty early understanding of the way the Water Cycle works, btw) so that it yields seed for the sower and bread for the eater, so is my word that goes out from my mouth:  It will not return to me empty, but will accomplish what I desire and achieve the purpose for which I sent it."  This Fox Valley Church blog is an avenue for God to send out a word that is needed.  It isn't about likes, shares or comments.  It is about God's words getting out and accomplishing what he desires.  Into the noise I submit to you, the reader, these words from Jesus, found in John 14:6  "I am the way and the truth and the life.  No comes to the Father except through me."  Jesus isn't just more noise, he is even more than better noise.  Christ is more than an option for living life--He is life.  He is more than just His truth--He is Truth.  Jesus is more than a leader who knows a way to a better life--He is THE way.  So long as Jesus is presented, this a meaningful blog post.  So long as any disciple of Christ presents Jesus to the thirsty they are doing a very good thing.  Concern for how many will hear is short sighted and ultimately not the point at all.  He who has ears, let him hear :)
