The former long-vacant Gold’s Gym building in the Moreland Plaza shopping center in Waukesha has been acquired by Fox River Christian Church, which plans to turn the two-story, 42,009-square-foot building into a community center. The building, which sits on a 1.95 acre site, was separated from the rest of the mall via a certified survey map in 2021 to encourage the sale or redevelopment of the building. Gold’s Gym closed there in July 2018. A staff report to the City Plan Commission says the church plans to use the building at 831 W. Moreland Blvd. for regular Sunday services, as well as individual and group counseling and lessons during the week. Additionally, the property will be used for weddings, funerals and other similar events, the report said. According to state ownership transfer records released this month, the building was purchased by White Harvest, LLC, a limited liability company affiliated with local businessman Charles Dion Conn, for $1,007,588. $. It is unclear if Conn is merely the registered agent for the LLC and if the church is in fact the new owner of the building, but state records indicate that all tax invoices will be sent to Conn’s home. . Attempts to reach a spokesperson for Fox River Christian Church, which has locations in Waukesha Village, Muskego and Waterford, were unsuccessful, as were attempts to reach Conn, which owns several McDonald’s franchises in the state. A staff member from the city’s community development department said he believed Conn was a member of the church.

On June 11, 2022, the Colonel James Wood II Chapter of the Virginia Society, Sons of the American Revolution participated in the commemoration of the 246th anniversary of the Virginia Bill of Rights held at Gunston Hall, sponsored by the chapter George Mason of the Virginia Society. RAS. George Mason authored ten articles, three additional articles were incorporated by the committee, and one additional article was added by the Fifth Virginia Convention.

In 1776, the colonies in America were frustrated by the tyrannical rule of the British government. As a result, they replaced the legislatures set up by Britain with extralegal governing bodies. Among these was the Virginia Convention which met in Williamsburg, Virginia. This Convention took many groundbreaking actions, however, one of its most important was the establishment of a committee to draft a constitution and bill of rights for the present state of Virginia.

The Washington Tattoo led the procession to the cemetery.

In May, George Mason submitted a first draft of the rights of citizens described in earlier works such as the English Bill of Rights. The Declaration can be considered the first modern constitutional protection of the individual rights of citizens of the American colonies. He rejected the notion of privileged political classes or hereditary offices such as members of Parliament and the House of Lords described in the English Bill of Rights. The document was drafted in 1776 to proclaim the inherent rights of men, consisting of sixteen articles with rights to life, liberty, property, and the pursuit and attainment of happiness and security. It describes the government as the servant of the people and lists its separation of powers between the administration, the legislature and the judiciary, becoming the principles on which a government should be run. This bill of rights was made by the representatives of the people of Virginia, assembled in full and free convention to proclaim what rights belong to them, and to their posterity, as the basis and foundation of government. This declaration was unanimously adopted by the Convention of Virginia on June 12, 1776, and became the basis and foundation of the government of Virginia. It influenced a number of later documents, including the Declaration of Independence later in 1776 and the Bill of Rights in 1789.

The ceremony was hosted by George Mason, President Fritz Barth and Past President Ken Morris. Participating SAR Chapters include George Mason (GM), Colonel James Wood II (CJWII), Sgt Maj John Champe (SJC), Colonel William Grayson (CWG), Culpeper Minutemen (CMM), Fairfax Resolves (FR), George Washington (GW ) and Williamsburg (WMB). Michael Elston, Chancellor General represented the National Society, Bill Greaf, 2nd Vice President represented the Virginia Society. District V Director Dr. Sharla Rausch represented the Daughters of the American Revolution and President Will Elston represented the Virginia Children of the American Revolution.

Nine DAR Chapters came to honor representatives from a CAR society of the War of 1812 Society, the Order of Founders and Patriots of Virginia, the sons and daughters of Virginia’s Founding Fathers, and daughters Americans of the War of 1812. present for the wreath presentations. The Virginia State Color Guard was led by Commander Dale Corey with members from seven chapters. They were led in procession by a quartet from the Washington Tattoo, consisting of three fifes and a drum. A laying of wreaths at the burial site has been held to honor the memory of George Mason.

After the ceremony, a three-shot musket salute was fired by the Virginia Society Color Guard. The musket team led by Dale Corey (CJWII) included Ken Bonner (SJC), Paul Christensen (CJWII), Jim Cordes (FR), Marc Robinson (CJWII) and Barry Schwoerer (SJC). Participating additional guards were Pete Davenport (GM), Tom Hamill (CMM), Charles Jameson (CMM), Andrew Mills (CWG), Jack Mills (CWG), Ken Morris (GM) and Jeff Thomas (FR).

Christian church administrators cleared of child abuse in death of 2 Lumad infants http://www.hardypresbyterian.com/2022/06/14/christian-church-administrators-cleared-of-child-abuse-in-death-of-2-lumad-infants/ Tue, 14 Jun 2022 06:47:00 +0000 http://www.hardypresbyterian.com/2022/06/14/christian-church-administrators-cleared-of-child-abuse-in-death-of-2-lumad-infants/ MANILA, Philippines — Citing a lack of evidence, a Davao City Court has dismissed child abuse charges against six administrators of a Christian church in Haran, Davao del Norte, which took in two Lumad infants who died in their refuge.

MANILA, Philippines — Citing a lack of evidence, a Davao City Court has dismissed child abuse charges against six administrators of a Christian church in Haran, Davao del Norte, which took in two Lumad infants who died in their refuge.

In a seven-page decision released Monday, Branch 12 Family Court Presiding Judge Dante Baguio said the prosecution had failed to prove that the six United Church of Christ administrators in Philippines intended to debase, degrade or belittle intrinsic worth and dignity. children as human beings.

“Not the slightest trace of evidence has been presented to show that the defendants were ill-motivated to facilitate and harbor the children under their shelter,” the court said.

He added that the prosecution had presented nothing that showed church administrators intended to abuse the two Lumad children, “other than the situation in the shelter which is not conducive to life. “.

Even with that finding, the court said there was no direct link between the shelter being “messy” and church administrators being responsible for the deaths of the two children.

The court also said no evidence was presented that church administrators did not immediately give medical treatment to sick children, which led to their deaths.

Further, the court said that at the time they fell ill and eventually died, infants were accompanied by their parents, who had the authority and duty to make decisions for their children.

“The prosecution has not demonstrated that the defendant interfered with or hindered the parents of the children concerned in the performance of their duties, or indeed prohibited them from carrying out this responsibility,” the court said.

With these findings, the court dropped the charges against Bishop Hamuel Tequis, Reverend Daniel Palicte, Ephraim Malazarte, Jong Monson, Lindy Trenilla and Grace Avila. The court also ordered the return of the bonds they had posted, worth 120,000 pesos each.

Alternative media Bulatlat describes the UCCP Haran complex as a “sanctuary” from the “militarization” of Lumad communities – a collective name for the indigenous people of Mindanao distinct from the Christian settlers and native Moros there.

The government attempted to shut down the shelter through a resolution adopted by the Davao Regional Council for Peace and Order in January 2020.

The Anti-Money Laundering Council in March 2021 froze three UCCP Haran bank accounts and property under the name Brokenshire Integrated Health Ministries Inc. after it allegedly found they were being used to fund terrorism.

UCCP Haran has been marked red by the government, with the state Philippine News Agency even saying in a report that the Lumads “are being exploited, tricked into joining anti-government protests, brainwashed into hating the government and soon to become members of the new Communist People’s Army.”

Some of the church administrators involved in the child abuse case also faced now-dismissed charges, such as Tequis, Trenilla and Monzon, which their lawyers described as “fabricated”. — with reporting by Kristine Joy Patag

An Anglican pastor, a Methodist missionary and a Pentecostal missionary have come together in a joint project in Madrid that has broken down barriers and strengthened bonds.

It’s a Arab Christian Community, the first in the Spanish capital and “the third in Spain, after one in Barcelona and the second in Malaga”, specifies Daniel Johnson, one of the founding pastors of “Kanissa in Madrid”, a Christian church that has held weekly meetings since October 2018.

Johnson, an Assemblies of God minister from the United States, has previously served as a missionary in Grenada, also focusing on outreach to Arabic-speaking people who identify primarily with the Muslim faith.

To Madrid he found that there was not a church that spoke entirely in Arabic to the capital’s large Arabic-speaking population having Arabic as a mother tongue.

He was not alone in recognizing this need; he soon found other Christians with the same sensibility and caller: Duane Miller, who is associate pastor of the Anglican Church of Madrid and his wife Sharon, and Raouf Soleiman, an Egyptian missionary of the Methodist Church.

They now meet in a room at the 4C Christian Center in Madrid on Tuesday evening. / Google Maps.

“Every Monday we had a prayer walk, and the idea to do something came up,” Johnson recalls. Since then, the Christian community has been built “on trust. We try to focus on the essentials and leave the rest in the hands of the Lord“, he explains. They now meet in a room of the 4C Christian Center on Tuesday evenings.

For this community, it is important to make yourself known to the evangelical churches of Madridwho “sometimes can have contacts or visits from Muslims, and they don’t know how to talk to them or help them, we are at their disposal”, underlines the missionary.

The Arab Christian Church of Madrid, an example of unity in the mission

The meetings are broadcast on Facebook and Youtube/KanisaEnMadrid.

In addition to the public meetings they hold every Tuesday afternoon, They have one website and are active on Facebook and Youtube, where they broadcast their services.

Getting known on the internet is also important for them, because many Arabs first approach the gospel through these media.

Johnson told the Spanish news site digital protestant that they are in contact with other missionary initiatives in other parts of Europewhere they find that more and more people of Muslim background are interested in the gospel.

They hope that the community can grow and also be an example that it is possible to carry out missionary work among Christians of different sensitivitiesbut with the same objective: to present Jesus to all languages, to all peoples and to all nations.

MILWAUKEE (CBS 58) — Many pilots CBS 58 spoke to today, June 11, called it a “blessings.”

This gas station on Atkinson and 8th Street was packed with cars today, with a queue in the street.

All thanks to a generous donation from Life Changers Christian Church.

The church started giving out free gasoline at 2:30 p.m. today.

It was an effort funded by donations to the church.

Dozens of drivers have passed through this BP because it’s the only black-owned gas station in Wisconsin, and they wanted this north side community to feel some love and relief during a tough time for l ‘economy.

“We hope the community can know that the church cares, that we care, you know, and whatever little we can help, we’re here to help,” said Pastor Jay of Life Changers Christian Church.

“Times are so tough, and the economy is going crazy, and gas prices are so crazy. So that helps. It’s like a blessing.” said Alonzo Johnson, one of the people who received free gas.

The regular gas price at this station is $5.19. So a free tank of gas certainly had an impact.

Pastor Jay of Life Changers Christian Church told CBS 58 that the church hopes to be able to start again in the future.

HAGERMAN, Idaho (KMVT/KSVT) – On May 20, the Hagerman Christian Center caught fire. According to Pastor Isaac Tellez, however, it is what happened after the fire that is the real story.

“What matters is that we all come together in times like this and we’re all there for each other,” Tellez said.

Pastor Tellez says since the night of the fire he is grateful for all the support. Fire departments from Bliss to Jerome assisted Hagerman in battling the blaze.

Other churches in the area also offered their space for their services, including restaurants that donated food to firefighters.

“I believe this fire has caused all of us to focus on what is important, and what is important is the community. And we all work together and are together,” he said.

In the meantime, they will have their weekly services at American Legion Hall in Hagerman at 10:30 a.m. on Sunday.

On June 9, they are looking for adult volunteers to help remove debris from the church before they can begin emptying the building.

“Gather everything resembling content, like benches and a sound system and screens in the sanctuary which is sheltered from the fire that we need help to bring all of this. The benches are heavy,” Tellez said.

He expects construction to take over a year.

“And this is the time when God is glorified. His sovereignty telling me “hey, I have everything under control, everything will be fine, trust me. And we have to trust him,” Tellez said.
