September 21st News- Joy in Joy

September 20, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

This week we will conclude our series on the Book of Philippians. To prepare, read Philippians 4:21-23.

This may not seem like a whole lot when you read it, but understand that Paul was very precise with the words he used in his letters to those he loved. You will see two words in this passage that we have talked about a lot during this series.

Can you guess what they are?

Come Sunday to find out– because they are very important in how you see God, yourself, others, circumstances, your future… Well, basically everything. That may have a great deal of influence on the amount of joy you experience in life.

As a reminder— For the month of September, we will be meeting with GFF and FCC together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for us to worship, pray, and study God’s word together.

Remember, the service will start at 10:00am as we meet with FCC.

In October, both churches will move back to their own times and service. I hope that you have enjoyed worshipping together as much as I have.

Finally, our next series is called, The Heart of the 10 Commandments. I believe that this is an excellent series to invite friends to because everyone is familiar with these commandments and, I believe, most of us don’t really understand and appreciate them. This series is a great way to lead us into the Thanksgiving and Christmas season!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 14th News- Joy in Giving

September 12, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

Are you generous?

Most of us would answer this question, “Yes.” We certainly would qualify it by stating that we could be more generous than we are– but we’re still pretty generous.

In Philippians 4:14-20, Paul talks about giving. See what he has to say… More importantly, come and hear what God is saying to you.

As a reminder— For the month of September, we will be meeting with GFF and FCC together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for us to worship, pray, and study God’s word together.

Remember, the service will start at 10:00am as we meet with FCC.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

September 7th News- Joy in Contentment

September 6, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

Are you content?

This can be a tricky question to answer, can’t it? Usually we are content is some area of life and discontent in another. But I believe that contentment is an elusive quarry– forever slipping beyond our grasp on a day to day basis.

In Philippians 4:10-13, Paul talks about the secret to contentment.

Aren’t you curious about the answer? Read the passage and come ready to learn how we can find contentment regardless of our circumstances.

As a reminder— For the month of August, we will be meeting with GFF and FCC together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for us to worship, pray, and study God’s word together.

Remember, the service will start at 10:00am as we meet with FCC.

Also, there will be a potluck brunch after the service. Bring something to share, or just come and eat and visit!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Philippians 15-JOY in Goodness

August 31, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians

In Philippians 4:8-9 Paul tells us the kinds of things we should be thinking about and meditating on. This is especially important in our culture of negative news and low moral values.

August 31st News- Joy in Goodness

August 27, 2014 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

You ever hear the phrase, “No news is good news”?

Why do we believe that? Why not make a big deal out of the good news around us? it’s not because it isn’t there– it’s because we are often drawn to and captured by the negative aspects of this life.

In Philippians 4:8-9, Paul encourages us to focus on “goodness” rather than “badness”. Sounds easy– and it is in a sense. But it is also challenging because we are bombarded with “badness” every day.

Read these verses and do what they say– “think on” them.

As a reminder— For the month of August, we will be meeting with GFF and FCC together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for us to worship, pray, and study God’s word together.

Remember, the service will start at 10:00am as we meet with FCC.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: Philippians: Finding Joy in a Broken World.

We will be looking at Philippians 4:6-7 this Sunday. I thought I was going to hit these verses last week– but God had other ideas!

As you read these verses, I encourage you to honestly assess your view of prayer in your life. With these words we get a blueprint of how to pray. But if we stop there, I think we miss the point. The focus of prayer is not the “what” (or perhaps the “how”), but the “who” and “why”.

These are important words about how we can experience peace in our lives (I think we’d all like a little more of that!).

As a reminder— For the month of August, we will be meeting with GFF and FCC together. It is an opportunity for us to get to know each other and for us to worship, pray, and study God’s word together.

Remember, the service will start at 10:00am as we meet with FCC.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
