January 21st News: New Seres!

January 19, 2018 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Extraordinary

Message: His People

This week we will begin a new series that will look at how God relates to people throughout the Bible. As we see how others have encountered God, we can gain valuable insights into how he relates to us.

To begin the series we will attempt to answer this question: Who are the people of God?

To prepare, we will actually go to the end of the Bible and read Revelation 21:1-8.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: Foundations for the New Year

Message: 10 guidelines from God

As we continue to look at foundational truths to build our lives upon, we will hear from God himself through his Word. Over the next two weeks we will ponder 10 Guidelines from God that can enable us to surrender to his will and ways.

 

I hope that you all survived the Blizzard of 2018. I have been out on the roads today and they are drivable, but still slick. I understand that the temperature is not expected to rise greatly until Monday. Right now, we are planning to hold our service at the usual time . I hope to visit the School of Rock tomorrow (Saturday) to see the conditions of the parking lot. If there are issues, I will let you know.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 31st News: Foundations for the New Year

December 30, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Foundations for the New Year

Message: Commitment or Surrender

As we enter a New Year, we often think back on the previous year and then ahead to the coming year. It is a time for reflection, as well as a time for futre dreams.

How can we experience the “life to the full” that Jesus tells us is available to us?

Over the next 3 weeks we are going to lay some Biblical foundations that can propel us into 2018 with faith, hope and love!

To prepare, read Jeremiah 29:11-13, Zechariah 4:6, and Matthew 16:24-26.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 24th News: Christmas Eve 2017

December 22, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Message: The Truth of Christmas

This Sunday evening we will gather to celebrate the birth of Jesus Christ.

We all have our Christmas memories, traditions, and desires… But we also know that much of what we experience has overshadowed to reason that we are celebrating. It is easy to get caught up in what the world wants to say about this night and miss what God says.

Come to hear from Jesus, himself, why he came and why it is such good news!

To prepare, read Luke 2:1-20.

Our Christmas Eve service will start at 4:30 at the School of Rock. Since Christmas Eve is Sunday, we will not have a service this Sunday morning.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 17th News: Follow Me– Build on the Rock

December 15, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Follow Me

Message: Build on the Rock

As we conclude our series Follow Me we will look at the last part of the Sermon on the Mount. In his conclusion, Jesus makes it very clear that there is only one way to build a meaningful life.

In a timeless message, he tells us we all build our lives on something.

To prepare, read Matthew 7:13-29.

I also want to remind you that we will have our Christmas Eve service next Sunday at 4:30 at the School of Rock. Since Christmas Eve is a Sunday, we will not have a service next Sunday morning.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

December 3rd News: Follow Me– On Earth as in Heaven

Series: Follow Me

Message: On Earth as in Heaven

As we enter the Christmas season, we are reminded that God invaded the earth when Jesus was born in Bethlehem.

It doesn’t get a whole lot more radical than that!

This Sunday we are going to look at an aspect of the Lord’s Prayer where Jesus tells us exactly what we should be doing and thinking about.

To prepare, read Matthew 6:9-15.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

November 26th News: Follow Me– Thanksgiving & Gratitude

November 25, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Follow Me

Message: Thanksgiving & Gratitude

We just celebrated a holiday that is all about giving thanks and gratitude. It’s actually a great idea– and biblical, too! We are called to give thanks on a regular basis.

But, sometimes this can be challenging. We tend to struggle in this area (at least I do!).

This Sunday we are going to practice gratitude.

To prepare, read Matthew 26:26-27 and Psalm 100.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

November 19th News: Follow Me– Salt & Light/Problem & Purpose

November 17, 2017 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Follow Me

Message: Salt & Light/Problem & Purpose

This week we will continue to ponder what Jesus was saying when he told his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world.”

We discovered that salt can represent purity, flavor, purification, thirst, and preservation. We have also seen that light comes from Jesus, and should be intentionally visible to everyone- to bring clarity, order, direction, and safety.

This week we will see the problem Jesus identifies in this passage and the purpose of being salt and light in the first place.

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16.

I also want to thank Michael and Tasha Hasty for opening their home for our potluck brunch after the service last week. It was a great tie with great people and great food!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Light

This week we will continue to ponder what Jesus was saying when he told his disciples, “You are the salt of the earth… You are the light of the world.”

We discovered that salt can represent purity, flavor, purification, thirst, and preservation.

What about light? What was Jesus telling his disciples to be and do?

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16.

I also want to remind you that we are having a potluck brunch after the service from 11:30-1:00 at the Hasty’s (2636 Wimbledon Pt Dr.)! Bring something to share if you can and enjoy being together.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
