New Sermon Series
Our theme for 2018 is “Whole-Hearted Faith.” Each sermon series is designed to help us fall more in love with the Lord by helping us know Him better. This Sunday we start our summer series, Behold Your God. The series ties into the 2018 theme by looking at some of the God’s character traits. I pray it will help us know Him better, be in awe of Him, and fall more in love with Him.
Psalm 148 calls for all of creation to join together and praise the Creator, and we are called to participate. The Psalm is a celebration: our Creator and Sustainer has strengthened us and drawn us near to Him. This was not a one-time act. He daily strengthens me and draws me near. May I pay attention to how He does this for me each day!
How to pray for FBC
Pray for the Congregational meeting on June 10, as well as the issues we will discuss at the meeting. We will look at budget and personnel issues and possibly other topics. Please join us. Pray for wisdom and grace as we move forward.
How to pray for our Community and World
I long to see our community and world celebrate the Creator. A first step would be acknowledging that the Creator exists. The world has seen creation’s power this year in floods, volcanoes, and powerful storms this winter. The world is tempted to look at the devastation and question if God exists at all. Although we grieve with those affected, we also recognize that the power of nature is a small glimpse of the power and wonder of the Creator. Only the Holy Spirit can cause someone to see beyond the damage to the Creator. Let’s pray that the Holy Spirit opens eyes in our world and community to the Creator who is also the Savior.
