The forecast calls for several inches of snow tomorrow. As we all know, the forecast is really just a guess– but we may need to cancel our service this Sunday (1/8/17).

We will be monitoring the weather during the day tomorrow and hope to make a call by 3:00pm. I will post on the website at that time.

 

Have a great day and be safe enjoying whatever God has for us! : )

Get Out of Here Sandy!

This is a phrase that comes easily to me because I have a sister named Sandy who i said that to a lot when I was a little kid. Now I don’t say that to my sister but to hurricanes named Sandy.

As of this time WE WILL HAVE OUR REGULAR CHURCH SERVICE TOMORROW.

I also want you to know that we need to start our services no later than 9:15am because of the Hilltop Community Church service that follows ours.

Last week we continued our journey through Christmas passages by looking at Gabriel’s announcement to Mary… “Greetings, you who are highly favored! The Lord is with you.” Incredible words proclaiming that God was going to be with Mary in a very special way.

But the same is true of us. We are highly favored– or “highly graced” by God’s unmerited favor in the gift of Jesus. The Lord is also with us– through the gift of his Holy Spirit.

This week, we will look at Joseph. Read Matthew 1:18-25 and try to place yourself in Joesph’s shoes (or sandals as the case may be). How would you have felt and reacted? And pay close attention to what the angel says to Joesph, because– you guessed it– God is telling us the same thing!

My prayer this season for me and my family– and for you– is to see the Christmas story in a whole new light. It is not just a celebration of a past event (although it certa inily is that); it is a celebration of a present reality and a future hope… all wrapped up in a manger.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

Grace2F Happenings

Christmas Caroling at Russell House

Last year we had a large group of folks go to Russell House (a government subsidized low-income housing project) to sing Christmas carols to (and the with) the residents. It was a blast. We want to do that again this year, so here are the facts:

When:  Sunday Dec 18th around 3:00pm– This will be right after I preach at the Russell House church service so there will be some folks who may join us right away.

Where: Russell House. It’s just across the street from Hilltop Community Church down toward Hilltop (the entrance is right at Wolfsnare)

What: Sing Carols… Even if you can’t sing. I mean ChrisAdams did it last year (and he even tried to clap). Bring a smile too– the residents love that!

Christmas Eve Service

This year, all three churches that meet at Hilltop Community Church will be combing to celebrate Christmas Eve together. The service will be in the sanctuary and will start at 5:00pm and end around 6:00.

Full childcare will be provided (according to Crosscurrent website 🙂

This Sunday we will continue to look at Paul’s first recorded sermon in the Bible. It is found in Acts chapter 13:13-52.

Last week Paul demonstrated God’s involvement and faithfulness with the people of Israel throughout their history. he then talks about Jesus and his death on the cross. This week we will focus on what Jesus accomplished (Acts 13:32-41). It is unbelievably good news for every one of us!

So take a look at the scripture and listen to God’s voice… He wants you to know these truths. He wants me to know them too…

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will return to our study of the Book of Acts by looking at Acts 12:1-19,

When you read this you will see it a miraculous story of deliverance. Ever feel like you need a miracle in your life? Ever wanted more spiritual power? How about protection from outside threats?

You are not alone. And God wants us to know what he has done in the past so that we can be encouraged about our future.

Hope to see you all in church tomorrow…

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will finish up our study on money, giving, and generosity.

I want to thank my dad for sharing last week while he was visiting– and your graciousness in making him and his wife feel so at home.

I hope that you have been thinking about the scripture passages we have been studying. This topic of money and possessions is extremely important– that’s why God addresses it in his Word so often.

One of the results of a vibrant Christian community is what one commentator calls “eye-popping generosity”. Does that describe our church? Does that describe me? What about you?

This Sunday we’re going to listen to Jesus talk about this topic. I think that’s a pretty good place to conclude our study. To prepare, read Matthew 6:19-34. This is an incredible passage that helps us to understand why money and materialism and giving and generosity can be so hard for us and create so many challenges in our lives. It also gives us some great truths to cling to and a promise to live for.

I hope to see you there…

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week will will continue a mini-study on MONEY…

Last week we saw in the Book of Acts that new Christians in Antioch gave generously to a “famine relief fund” for Christian brothers and sisters in Jerusalem. This led us to our mini-study about giving, generosity, and money.

I want to tell you how much I appreciated all of you and how you received the message last week. These passages we are looking at show us God’s view of money and how we can change the way we think about it. I know that money is an emotional issue for all of us. But it can also be a powerful addiction that robs us of  our joy and a vibrant life with Jesus.

That’s why we need to talk about it. We need to look at God’s Word and see where he may want us to adjust our thinking.

Thanks for your willingness to allow me to lead us into the scripture in this. God is teaching me in this area and I believe he will teach you as well.

To prepare, you may want to review Malachi 3:8-10 (we looked at that last week). Then read 1 Timothy 6:6-10, 17-19; 2 Corinthians 9:6-15; and Matthew 6:19-34. We’ll probably cover 1 Timothy and 2 Corinthians tomorrow and look at Matthew 6 next week.

Looking forward to Sunday!

Grace and peace,

Doug
