Hi Friends,

Have you ever wondered how you can experience the love of God in an ongoing way?  The Bible gives several answers, but this Sunday we are going to look at how Jesus walked his disciples through how they would be able to continue to experience him, even after he left earth.  I’m excited to hear from my good friend Ian McConnell as he preaches out of Luke 24 on Fueling the Fire.  If you’ve never heard Ian preach, you are definitely in for a real treat!
As we prepare to gather on Sunday, I want to encourage us all to be praying for our time together.  I think it is very easy to forget the reality that Satan hates what God is doing at Christ Church and he wants to distract and discourage us.  Let’s not forget that every time we gather, spiritual warfare is taking place.
We do not wrestle against flesh and blood, but against the rulers, against the authorities, against the cosmic powers over this present darkness, against the spiritual forces of evil in the heavenly places…. praying at all times in the Spirit, with all prayer and supplication. (Eph 6:12,18 ESV)
Let’s stand together and through prayer, fight for our joy in Christ.
See you on the best day of the week!
Jeff

Church Picnic:

After our service today, we will be hanging out at the church for a cookout! This is a low key, event that’s a great opportunity to spend extra time together, build our relationships and be the church out in our neighborhood. The church will be providing hot dogs, hamburgers, vegan burgers, salad and chips. Hope you can make it! If possible, please donate $10/family or $5/person.

Small Groups

Our small groups are this week on the 7th, 8th and 9th! These groups are a vital part of our community life where we gather in smaller numbers to eat together, study the bible and pray. This is also one of the best ways to connect with people from the church.
