Last Sunday we kicked off our new message series on the Book of Acts called, “The Spirit-Powered Church.” We were challenged to refocus our lives around Jesus’ mission. Are you living on mission with Jesus? Jesus is passionate about rescuing people by seeing them come to know Him. Living on mission isn’t another thing to add to our “To-Do” list. Rather, living on mission is to happen as we go about our daily lives. It’s the belief that God has placed you where you’re at – in your job, your home, your friendship – for a purpose. It’s no accident. He primarily wants you there to do His mission.
But, if we’re honest, living on mission can be intimidating. We may feel like we don’t know what we’re doing or don’t know how to carry out His mission. If you feel like that you have help. You actually have The Helper in the Holy Spirit. Jesus has given us God’s Spirit to live in us and empower us for mission. This Sunday we’ll look at one person in Acts who was weak…until he relied on the Spirit and God used him for great things. You’ve been given power…for mission. Join us at 11am, Hyatt Place Hotel.
We’ll also be celebrating Bread and Cup this Sunday. Hope you can be there!
Thoughts on Prayer – “Prayer is the exercise of drawing on the grace of God.” – Oswald Chambers Psalm 16 is a prayer of praise to God. It recognizes our Lord as the only true God who keeps us safe, gives us what is good for us, counsels us, is always there for us, and promises that we will spend eternity with Him. This week during your devotional time, read and meditate on Psalm 16.
We want to give our church family an opportunity to pray together on a weekly basis on Sunday mornings before our worship service begins. You are invited and encouraged to come to the Hyatt Place at 10:30 to 10:45 each week and join in a time of prayer for our church. We will meet in the Kids Room.
