Hi Friends,

It has been another challenging week for us here in Philly and who knows what will happen next week.  In these uncertain times, I am so grateful that we can gather together as the church of Jesus Christ and have our hearts filled with hope as we worship our risen, reigning and glorious Savior.

This Sunday our pastoral team felt that the Lord wanted us to take a break from our series in Luke and let the Lord speak to us from Psalm 46.  Please review our liturgy below and as you do pray over each portion that God would meet us as we gather to worship Him.  As you know, we are a church that believes that God speaks to us not only in planned ways, but unplanned as well.  And so if you feel the Lord giving you a prophetic word of encouragement, please email me and I would love to share that during our Sunday Service.

Don’t forget that we have services at 8:45am and 11am.  Both are streamed on our website and Facebook.  If you are able to experience the joy of being in person, then don’t forget to RSVP at this link https://www.eventbrite.com/o/christ-church-south-philly-31522935663?s=125255171

Grace and peace,

Pastor Jeff
