Hi Friends,

I’m excited for another great Sunday Service at Christ Church.  I believe the Lord wants to meet us as we fellowship with one another, sing together, pray together, hear God’s word preached together and celebrate the Lord’s supper together.  This Sunday we are going to see Jesus teaching his disciples how to be prepared for how they were soon going to be put under pressure to deny their faith in Him.  I think this is so relevant for us today as it is getting harder and harder to be an authentic Christian in our culture.  God has something he wants to say to us!

Also, it’s been brought to my attention that our amazing hospitality team has been missing most of the sreviec because they are continously brewing coffee.  Now, I love that we get to serve coffee at our church.  However, I don’t think anyone’s cup of Joe is more important that being abe to be in the service.  So coffee is going to stop being made at 9:50am and when it runs out, it runs out.  Please do not ask anyone to make more.  You’ll live.  I promise.

See you on the best day of the week!

Pastor Jeff

Call to Worship 10am

Make a joyful noise to the LORD, all the earth! Serve the LORD with gladness! Come into his presence with singing! Know that the LORD, he is God! It is he who made us, and we are his; we are his people, and the sheep of his pasture. Enter his gates with thanksgiving, and his courts with praise! Give thanks to him; bless his name!  For the LORD is good; his steadfast love endures forever, and his faithfulness to all generations. (Psa 100:1-5 ESV)
