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

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

Message: Salt

Last week we heard Jesus tell us that we are salt and light for a decaying and dark world.

Now, we’ll unpack those words a bit to understand what Jesus is really saying. This week, we will focus on what he means by the word salt.

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16.

I also want to remind you to bring in your shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child (along with $9 for the shipping if you are able). SUNDAY IS THE DEADLINE!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Message: Salt & Light

This week we get to look at a pretty interesting and relevant topic. This week, we tackle the question: Why are we here?

Actually, Jesus tells us why in our passage. I believe we will see our lives in a whole new way as we discover what Jesus calls us to do and how to do it.

To prepare, read Matthew 5:13-16. You’ve probably read these words before, but they are tremendously significant.

I also want to remind you to bring in your shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child (along with $9 for the shipping if you are able). This is a great opportunity to be salt and light!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

October 15th News: Follow Me– Be My Disciples

Message: Be My Disciples

Jesus never planned to carry out his mission on earth alone. When you think about that– God partners with man to achieve His goal– it is somewhat mind blowing. Why? What does a group of broken sinners bring to the table? How come he invites those he had to come save to work alongside him?

Radical, huh? Different then any other religion, that’s for sure.

We see this play out when Jesus begins to pick his formal “disciples”– the men who would travel and live with him for three years and then carry on the ministry after he ascends to heaven.

To prepare, read Matthew 4:18-25.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
