This reminds me a little bit of the conviction of the Holy Spirit. Within each of us as believers, there is an internal alert of conscience when we are tempted to sin and there is that “zap” of pain when we get too close to the boundaries God has set up for us. We need to learn to listen for that sound and respond to the “zap” before we cross those boundaries and disappoint our Lord.
I understand that the electric fences have limitations to their effectiveness. Certain dogs will ignore the pain of the shock and break the boundaries because of the lure of what is on the other side of the fence. Unfortunately, we, too, can learn learn to ignore the promptings of the Spirit and choose to disobey because we are too drawn to what is on the other side
of the fence.
People put fences up for their dogs, whether invisible or not, because they do not want their dogs to stray and become lost. They love their dogs and want to keep them protected and close to them.
In the same way, God's commandments are given to us because God loves us and does not want us to stray away from Him. He wants to be able to feed us and nurture us and cleanse us, which He will always do as long as we remain close to Him. We always have the choice to cross over the boundaries, but God has lovingly given us the Holy Spirit to convict us and remind us of the blessings of God's boundaries. May we appreciate God's love, His concern and His commandments. May we respond to that slight pain of conviction because it keeps us within His love and care.
With love, Pastor Scott

We play games, eat snacks, pray for each other, share a few laughs, and dig into a Bible lesson and how it applies to us. Check us out, you'll find a space that you're welcome and appreciated.

As much as we all hate to see summer coming to an end, it does mean another cool year of Awana is about to begin!
Awana will begin a new club year, Wednesday, September 7th at 6:05 pm. We look forward to this upcoming club year of learning, growing, and fun. Clubbers crawl under your beds (don’t get stuck, yikes), look in your closets, gather up your Awana gear, bring some new friends, and let’s get ready to rock this new club year!
Registration is required for all clubbers and leaders, it’s simple, log on to www.spinningroadbaptist.org, and register as soon as possible.
Please pray for leaders, clubbers, and missionaries that our AWANA ministry can continue to lead the children of our community to Jesus Christ and train them to honor and serve Him.
Thank-you for your continued support in this ministry! Help us teach, reach, and lead them because kids matter to God.
For more information feel free to reach out to us at (937)252-5311 or email us at email@example.com.
Cool with Christ

Your donations to the food pantry are once again requested. We have ample supply of paper towels but any food items or toilet paper would be appreciated. We are once again gearing up for our Thanksgiving and Christmas baskets to be given.
As always thank you for your generosity.
Thank you to Dave & Rita, Kelsey, Ellie and Tere, the teachers who taught our 3yr. old’s – 6th graders this past summer on Wednesday nights during Ckk. You all were such a blessing!
p.s. Thanks to the code master who prepared and delivered our codes each week they were fun.
Phillip and Rebecca Wei are currently in Washington D C and in ministry with two different parts of Cru.
The first is Epic, a ministry focused on reaching Asian-American Americans many of whom grew up in church but drifted away as they attended college. Our hope is use our expertise from working with international students to reach this unique group of people.
The second is Design, a ministry for South-Asian Americans. Design is very new, and only has around 14 staff across the U S. Rebecca will be able to use her experience in South Asia to help develop a movement at the University of Maryland. Philip will also be researching working with refugees. All of these groups are under reached and we are excited to see how god will use us.
Please join us as we support Phillip and Rebecca in these unique ministries.
