A Message From the Pastor

January 18th, 2020

Dear Brothers and Sisters in Christ,

The week is coming to a close, and it looks as if the weekend will welcome us with a wintery mix! Please be safe if driving tomorrow morning. We’ll still have our Men’s Breakfast Small Group at Perry’s tomorrow at 9am. Come join us!

On Sunday in worship we’ll be talking about Jesus meeting his first disciples after his baptism and the way that he invites them to be a part of what his own ministry. In Bible study we’re continuing to move through Paul’s second missionary journey talking about the tough issues that he had to face.

I look forward to seeing you at 9am in Bible study and 10:30am in worship!

Would you pray with me?

Gracious God, Heavenly Father, you sent your Son into this world to bring about our salvation. He truly is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world! Continually fill us with your Spirit that we might look to him to be a part of his ministry on earth. Work through us to seek out the lost as we rest in your love and grace. We pray this in the name of Jesus Christ our Lord. Amen.

Have a great weekend!

In Christ,

Pastor Alec
