This week we will continue our series What It Means to be a Disciple of Jesus.

I want to thank Frank Dunne for filling in while we were away at my niece’s wedding in Tampa (thanks for your prayers– we had an incredible time!). I listened to his message and it was very powerful, challenging, and inspiring. I hope to post it in the next couple of days and encourage you to listen to it though the “Messages” section on our website… If you have never been to our website it is at www.grace2f.org. It is up dated each week with messages, notes, and announcements.

This Sunday we will see that a disciple is also a SERVANT. I know that we all know we are supposed to be servants– but, if we are honest, we often approach church and even Jesus not as a servant but as a serve-me. This will lead to problems and steal a great deal of joy from your life.

To prepare read Mark 10:35-45.

We will also hear a bit about the results of our pledge drive and the vision for Grace2F moving forward. I know that this is a busy time, but THIS IS AN IMPORTANT SUNDAY TO BE AT CHURCH!

HOPE TO SEE YA’LL THERE…

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week our family will be traveling to Tampa Florida for the wedding of my oldest niece Erin. I am thrilled to have the opportunity to officiate the wedding and look forward to being with the entire family. Please pray for us and this time.

On Sunday, Frank Dunne is going to follow up last weeks’ message on being a “neighbor” by sharing some of his experiences as a missionary to the people of Tibet. He has some really great stories and will provide a practical context to discover how disciples can be neighbors all over the world.

I want to encourage you to come Sunday to get a vision that extends beyond the walls of our church. To prepare, read Luke 10:1-24.

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

This week we will continue our series What It Means to Be a Disciple of Jesus by seeing that a disciple is also a NEIGHBOR.

We’ve seen that a disciple is a FRIEND and have used that characteristic to think about how we, as Christians, are to relate to each other in the church.

As we think about being a NEIGHBOR, the focus becomes how we relate to those outside the church. Jesus says a great deal about this throughout his ministry, but we will focus on a particular story that illustrates this point very dramatically and effectively.

To prepare, read the story known as The Good Samaritan in Luke 10:25-37. Most of us are familiar with this story, but the implications of Jesus’ words here are radical and transforming!

Looking forward to Sunday!!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
