Hi friends,

Our city can be fun with lots of exciting things to do.  It can be sad and hard with many challenging things that happen.  But what does God think about the city?  Pastor Matt is going to be preaching this Sunday in our values series about how God views the city.  I’m really excited about the sermon he’s going to bring.  You aren’t going to want to miss it!  And think about who you can invite.
Also, check out the announcement below regarding our Friendsgiving Dinner this coming Saturday.  Looks like we still need 6 more Turkeys.  Definitely don’t want to run out of Turkey 🙂  You can signup here!
Grace and peace,
Pastor Jeff

As for man, his days are like grass; he flourishes like a flower of the field; for the wind passes over it, and it is gone, and its place knows it no more.  But the steadfast love of the LORD is from everlasting to everlasting (Psa 103:15-17 ESV)

Personal Reflection

Sharing the Lord’s Supper

Responding to God’s word in Song

  1. Build My Life

  2. God of This City

Benediction

And I saw the holy city, new Jerusalem, coming down out of heaven from God, prepared as a bride adorned for her husband. And I heard a loud voice from the throne saying, “Behold, the dwelling place of God is with man. He will dwell with them, and they will be his people, and God himself will be with them as their God. He will wipe away every tear from their eyes, and death shall be no more, neither shall there be mourning, nor crying, nor pain anymore, for the former things have passed away.” And he who was seated on the throne said, “Behold, I am making all things new.” Also he said, “Write this down, for these words are trustworthy and true.” (Rev 21:2-5 ESV)
