Everyday is important (this is the day the Lord has made . . .) and so is every week. But this week feels different to me. It feels that what happens this week and in the next few weeks will determine the future direction of our church.
For that reason, I want to ask you to make every effort to attend in person if you are “out and about” during this season. If you are staying in, please view the services by live stream or Facebook. Whatever you do, please pray for God’s blessings and leadership for His church.
This week begins our new sermon series on “Renew.” This is not simply a new series; it is who and what we must be and do.
I think everyone can now see that things have changed–not just for the short term but also for the long term. Therefore, how we do church must change as well.
We all know we must rebuild the church, but I don’t want us to rebuild what was. I want us to be renewed and to renew the church in the same way. It’s not enough just to restart what has been stopped. I want us to pray so that we are renewed with the new wineskins that will take us into the future, possibly until Jesus returns.
I want to ask you to consider how you will be renewed during this time.
I also want to ask you to join us in the Worship Center Sunday night at 6:00 PM for our first Congregational Meeting of 2020. In this meeting, we will give you information about finances and attendance and we will discuss future possibilities for ministry and other business issues.
The Worship Center should allow us to spread out adequately as well as have opportunity to pray and think about our future.
