Hi Friends,
This Sunday we are wrapping up our Resolved to Grow series. I have enjoyed taking this look at 6 different things that can change our 2020.  I truly hope and pray that we will grow in these areas and watch God do incredible things this year.  Our final topic is going to be on investing in the next generation.  God wants to call us to a vision to be part of something that will outlast our lifetimes.  Whether single, married, no kids, lots of kids, young parent, or grandparent, God wants to call us to be committed to the next generation.  I am looking forward to sharing this word with you and seeing God’s call to leave behind a legacy of faith.
Please be praying for our gathering and also pray that God would give you an opportunity to invite someone.  We gather not to be spectators, but part of what God is doing.  That starts with inviting our neighbors and then means that we come to our Sunday Service looking to greet and welcome all who come through our doors. Let’s be praying that God would use us!
See you on the best day of the week!
Pastor Jeff

When the righteous cry for help, the LORD hears and delivers them out of all their troubles. The LORD is near to the brokenhearted and saves the crushed in spirit. Many are the afflictions of the righteous, but the LORD delivers him out of them all. (Psa 34:17-19 ESV)
