This Sunday

This Sunday – Oct. 12th, 2017

Blessed be the Lord! For he has heard the voice of my pleas for mercy.
The Lord is my strength and my shield; in him my heart trusts, and I am helped;
my heart exults, and with my song I give thanks to him.

Psalm 28:6-7

Friends, God invites us to come and experience his mercy and grace. Those who are weary, those who are confused, those who are doubting. Those who are guilty, those who are disillusioned, and those who boast in themselves.

Let us come to be helped by his powerful Word and his Spirit.

I’ll lead our times of singing including a new song, and Eric will continue our series in the book of James.

Can’t wait to be with you all!

“For by grace you have been saved through faith. And this is not your own doing; it is the gift of God, not a result of works, so that no one may boast.”
Ephesians 2:8-9

Ever received a gift from someone when you didn’t deserve it?

God says you have. It is the life changing, joy producing, extravagant gift of salvation. He gave it to you because he wanted to. He chose to do it of his own free will.

So come this Sunday ready to celebrate that gift and praise the Giver, the source of every good thing.

In addition to our normal Sunday service, we have the joy of participating in the baptisms of a couple people from our church community!

These are some of my favorite Sundays. Can’t wait to be with you all.

It is a privilege because there is much grace in God’s invitation to us. He promises to reveal his grace and his glory.

How often do you take time to consider what God can do? In your life, in this city, in impossible situations, in this world?

God invites us to gather this Sunday and do this exact thing! He wants to remind us of his incredible saving power, his awesome might and glory, and his infinite love and grace. This is what we need to see and believe!

“O come, let us sing to the LORD; let us make a joyful noise to the rock of our salvation! Let us come into his presence with thanksgiving; let us make a joyful noise to him with songs of praise!” Psalm 95:1-2

As we prepare for this Sunday, let us consider our blessings in being able to gather.

– We gather freely, without fear of persecution
– We are able to meet not impacted by any significant weather (unlike our friends in parts of Texas and Florida)
– We gather with Christians in this area who are united in their desire to encounter God and follow him
– We gather with the promise that God will meet us by his Sprit
– We gather to rehearse the glorious good news that the tomb is empty and Jesus is alive!

I will lead our times of singing, including a brief explanation of the words we sing in the hymn, Come Thou Fount. Eric will begin our series in the book of James!

Can’t wait to worship with you all.
