As We Gather

Upcoming

2020

A part of us expects justice from God. We think that fairness ought to reign—that each of us should get what we deserve. But this is a dead end. God does not give us what we deserve but acts with mercy and grace beyond belief. He is scandalously generous and lavish with us—giving us what we do not deserve and have not earned. We are tempted to ask God for equity and what we deserve, but God is determined to give us so much more in Christ. Only in faith can we learn to let God be God, to honor His generosity with the only response He desires: faith and thanksgiving. Today we pray the Lord to break through to our hearts and minds with His abundant grace and to rejoice that He is more than fair—He is merciful!

Red Letter Challenge

Dated
September

2020

The Red Letter Challenge is to help us live more like Jesus. Sadly, when people think of Jesus-followers it is a far cry from who Jesus actually is. After all that Jesus has done for us, we are not content with the picture and representation that we are sharing. We want represent the true story and change misperceptions of who Jesus is.

So, we are going back to Christ’s words. Those red letters in your Bible. It turns out Jesus had a lot to say to His followers about what we are called to do and how we are called to live.

We will examine Christ’s literal words and have practical daily challenges based on those words. We will have targets to shoot for to help us measure how we are practically following after Christ. We want to be the best Jesus followers that we can be not out of obligation, but out of gratitude for what Jesus has done for us! For more information email: Pastor Ray.

Matthew 20:9 - “And when those hired about the eleventh hour came, each of them received a denarius.

Behold the generosity of God! He gives out of His grace, not what we deserve to receive. Living a godly life means living in imitation of God, and His generosity is surely one of the foundations of God’s being.

In Sunday School this week, students studied “The Fall of Jericho.” We are reminded that God is our mighty fortress, who delivers us from the false walls of our sin and saves us in the true Joshua, Jesus, that we might become and remain His people. Ask students, “What did the people of Jericho think their wall (fortress) would do for them? What does God, our fortress, do for us?”
