As our ears and eyes are opened to the person and purpose of Jesus, we learn that success and service in Christ kingdom is flipped. “The first shall be last, and the last shall be first.” We all know that phrase, but what does it mean? Jesus will show us with a wonderful, humbling example: A child. Pray for God’s gracious humbling as we travel through Mark 9:30-37.
Live-Stream This Week
As we remain self-isolated, it is vitally important to connect online to our live-stream worship service each week. We are trying to keep it both meaningful and relatively short (especially families with young kids). So invite a friend, host a watch party, and sing out! You can tune-in via these four links:
Acts 2:45 tells us that the early Christians “were selling their possessions and belongings and distributing the proceeds to all, as any had need.” That is, essentially, the purpose of our benevolence ministry. We don’t want anyone to suffer needlessly, and so we are here to serve you. Especially in this time where our economy has taken such a hard hit, we understand that many people may need financial assistance. Please do not hesitate to reach out to Ryan or Shelby.
Along with this, please consider donating to our benevolence fund so that we can help as many people as possible.
