Hi Friends,

I want to start getting our service preview out earlier, so that you can have more time to know what to pray for and to think about who you can invite.
Also, I’ve had a few people ask about the pre-service prayer meeting.  Anyone is welcome!  The prayer team is always there, but the more people who want to join us in praying before the service the better 🙂
This Sunday we are going to be studying a passage that talks about how do people change.  What do you want to change in your life?  Where do you feel stuck?  Jesus has a life changing message for us in the gospel of Luke about change.  If we understand what he is saying here, this will be a game changer for how we think about change.
See you on the best day of the week!
Pastor Jeff

The LORD is my light and my salvation; whom shall I fear? The LORD is the stronghold of my life; of whom shall I be afraid?  When evildoers assail me to eat up my flesh, my adversaries and foes, it is they who stumble and fall. Though an army encamp against me, my heart shall not fear; though war arise against me, yet I will be confident.  One thing have I asked of the LORD, that will I seek after: that I may dwell in the house of the LORD all the days of my life, to gaze upon the beauty of the LORD and to inquire in his temple. For he will hide me in his shelter in the day of trouble; he will conceal me under the cover of his tent; he will lift me high upon a rock.  And now my head shall be lifted up above my enemies all around me, and I will offer in his tent sacrifices with shouts of joy; I will sing and make melody to the LORD. (Psa 27:1-6 ESV)

Personal Reflection

Sharing the Lord’s Supper

Responding to God’s word in Song
1.  Shine into our night
2.  Oh Great God


For this reason I bow my knees before the Father,from whom every family in heaven and on earth is named,that according to the riches of his glory he may grant you to be strengthened with power through his Spirit in your inner being,so that Christ may dwell in your hearts through faith—that you, being rooted and grounded in love,may have strength to comprehend with all the saints what is the breadth and length and height and depth,and to know the love of Christ that surpasses knowledge, that you may be filled with all the fullness of God. – Ephesians 3:14-19
