Hey guys! Here are directions for posting to the blog:
Log into your blogger account.
On the main page that appears (called the "Dashboard"), there should be a list of all of the blogs that you are a contributer of. If you got the blog invitation from Mr Mose, then this blog should be on the list.
There is a button labeled "New Post" underneath this blog on the list. Click that, and you will be brought to a page where you can write the post.
Then create your post.
Click the button that says "Publish Post" and you will have successfully published a post to the Next Level blog!
NOTE: You must first be invited to join the Next Level blog before you will be allowed to post to it or comment on other posts. Please ask Mr Mosley to send you an invite if you have not already received one.
Hope this helps!
- First go to http://www.blogger.com/
- Then click the big, orange button that says "Create A Blog"
You will be directed to a page that says "Create a Google Account." Follow the onscreen instructions. You will need to:
- Enter YOUR email address (you will need to type it twice to verify it).
- Create a password (like with the email, you will need to enter it twice)
- Create a "display name" (which will be your username)
- Type in the "Word Verification" code, which will be displayed onscreen (This basically ensures that an actual person is creating the account, not a computer).
- Accept the Terms of Service
- Click the big, orange button that says "Continue"
On the next page, you will be given the opportunity to create a blog. If you do not wish to do this, simply click the link that says "Skip this and create a blog later" (This link is located directly next to the big orange "Continue" button).
You will then be directed to the Blogger Dashboard (which is the page you will see every time you log in)
Congrats! You have now successfully created a Blogger account!

We set the second weekend of January for our Progressive dinner a month ago and it's almost here. We will meet at the church at 5 p.m. Friday 1/8 to carpool, as many as possible. Parents who would like to pilot minivans would be appreciated. Will be sending out directions and details this week so stay tuned!

Pray for Pastor Kammel as he makes decisions about children's ministries, and the leadership as they stand ready to help us solve our size problems. Pray that EBC will be able to give us the budget we need to increase and improve our outreach and service, pray for parents who have supported us well and made the successes we've had possible. Pray for the children in our church and community and that God would show us how best to reach them, again pray for Peter, Kim, Chere and me, and pray that God would help you focus your lives and energies toward Christ and we would succeed by doing His will (which never fails).
They are not the enemy! Share your spiritual questions and insights. Share what we talk about at NLM and encourage them to volunteer for our activities. We want them to be involved in your spiritual growth and maturity. Listen to their ideas and insights about how to grow spiritually. Share a devotional some days. Sit down and pray together, taking turns asking God to intervene for friends, loved ones, and the lost. Make lists writing down all the reasons you have to praise God and share them. It could spawn some interesting discussions.
Word has reached my royal ear (as King Louie in the Jungle Book said) that there are divisions among you (as Paul said) and it breaks my heart. How, after all we have been through and after all the truth we have learned together, could you still carry the grudges and let the pettiness put you aside? Remember these are carried and they can be dropped. Be thankful that God does not carry grudges but sees you far away and runs to you and craves your reconciliation with Him. He gives you every chance. He gave His only son so that you could be reconciled. Do you really think you have the right to stay away from NLM or avoid talking to someone because he or she said so and so? Make this the year you reconcile, understand, and rise above the pettiness and the sin that so easily besets us and makes us rusty swords for a battle that requires you to be keen and sharp. What? Do you like being upset and on edge? Cast it aside. God has said, "If you love me keep my commandments." Time to show your love for Him by showing it for your fellows. Rise above it, reconcile, understand each other and move on for the cause of Christ.
