Announcements, Oct. 21, 2016
If you missed Dr. Crawford Loritts last Sunday, I highly encourage you to listen to his sermon here. In a our current climate of racial, cultural, and political strife, it was a very helpful message on how the gospel calls Christians to a life of reconciliation. May the Lord help us be a light in this area for our broken world.
This Sunday we’ll look at 1 Timothy 5:1–16 and some practical instructions on how Christians in a local church are to care for one another. We’ll also celebrate as we see two folks proclaim the gospel through baptism. Looking forward to seeing you all!
Grace and peace,
