Hi Friends,

If you knew that the world was ending tomorrow what would be different about what you did today?  That’s what Jesus is going to be getting into as we head back to our series in the gospel of Luke.  We’ve got a full day of great things going on at Christ Church. In the Equip class, I’m looking forward to getting into one of the more challenging questions that there is for the Christian faith.  Our sermon passage has been speaking to me all week and I look forward sharing it with you.  And then we have our annual Family meeting after church with lunch and vision for 2020.  It’s going to be great!

See you on the best day of the week,

Pastor Jeff

O God, you are my God; earnestly I seek you; my soul thirsts for you; my flesh faints for you, as in a dry and weary land where there is no water. So I have looked upon you in the sanctuary, beholding your power and glory. Because your steadfast love is better than life, my lips will praise you (Psa 63:1-3 ESV)

I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Henceforth there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous judge, will award to me on that Day, and not only to me but also to all who have loved his appearing (2Ti 4:7-8 ESV)
