Announcements, July 10, 2015
This Sunday our text will be 1 Thessalonians 2:13–16, in which Paul gives thanks for how the Thessalonians have received the word of God and how clearly it is at work in them. I think this brief text gives us a very important insight into the power and primacy of the word of God in the life of a Christian and the local church. Our plan will be to unpack how Scripture works in and on us to conform us to the image of Christ.
Also, this Sunday evening we are having our bi-monthly “One Another” Member Meeting. I really hope you will make it a priority to be there if you are in town. We have some very important things to discuss in light of the Supreme Court’s decision on same-sex marriage and how we as a church should respond and posture ourselves in our culture.
Looking forward to seeing you Sunday!
