Israel_mountainsideYou like this picture? It’s taken from a mountain in Israel… I don’t know which one or where.

I wanted you to have this image in your mind this week, because we’re going to travel with Jesus and his disciples to a mountain side. To get there, we’ll have to survive the crush of incredible crowds of desperate people trying to get close to Jesus.

Our passage this week is found in mark 3:7-19. In my Bible this is divided into two sections. The first, Mark 7-12, is described as “Crowds Follow Jesus”. The second, Mark 13-19, is described as “The Appointing of the Twelve Apostles”.

As you read these verses, understand that Jesus has called and appointed youjust like he did his disciples in the story. In fact, and I’ve said this many times before, they’re story is our story.

Sunday I hope to show you exactly what I mean. I hope you can be there.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace

Doug

I want to remind you that we can help out Hilltop Community Church by providing some of the things that we regularly use.

Last week, I talked about 42 gallon trash bags– well, lo and behold, someone generously provided a box of 50!

Here are some general items you can help with (before it’s too late!).

– Coffee

– Toilet paper (I checked today… The supply is getting perilously low)

– Paper towels

I know it doesn’t seem like a big deal, but donating these things really helps out everyone who uses the facility.
