Hi Friends,

As we start this New Year we are going to see Jesus teach us a parable about what He wants us to do while we wait for His return.  When the Lord speaks about our purpose in life, that’s a message calls for our attention!

Also, Hannah McCurley is going to be joining us to give an update on her missions efforts in the Philippines.  II can’t wait for you to hear about how God is at work.

Remember that our first service is now at 9am and our second service remains at 11am.  You can register to attend in person here https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-church-south-philly-31522935663?s=125255171

I’m looking forward to worshipping with you this Sunday!

Pastor Jeff

 Call to Worship (Playlist)

Great is the LORD, and greatly to be praised, and his greatness is unsearchable.  One generation shall commend your works to another, and shall declare your mighty acts.  On the glorious splendor of your majesty, and on your wondrous works, I will meditate.  They shall speak of the might of your awesome deeds, and I will declare your greatness.  They shall pour forth the fame of your abundant goodness and shall sing aloud of your righteousness.  The LORD is gracious and merciful, slow to anger and abounding in steadfast love.  The LORD is good to all, and his mercy is over all that he has made. (Psa 145:3-9 ESV)
