Hello Church Family,
This week in our sermon series “Jesus on Church”, we walked through Mathew 16. Jesus asks the disciples,”Who do you say that I am?” This is the most important question we will ever ask ourselves and we find that all of us must answer this question eventually. Through Peter’s confession we see the true identity of Jesus as the Messiah and the son of God. We also find our own identity in this confession. Created as image-bearers of God, once we understand him rightly, we can understand ourselves. Finally, we see the church as God’s people who understand and rightly profess who Jesus is and listen for confessions like Peter’s to affirm the gospel. You can check out the sermon here!
Last Sunday we learned Dean, a new member at Church on Mill, had passed away. During the meeting we heard from Tony as he recounted Dean’s story of coming to faith in Christ. Due to a love for wresting and the faithful care of members at Church on Mill, Dean came to trust in Jesus. As a result, what would have been a somber meeting turned into one of the most moving testimonies and prayer times I have ever seen.
Another update from the meeting was the merger between Church on Mill’s college ministry and Christian Challenge (which sits across the lawn from the sanctuary). We are excited to announce that our college ministry going forward will be Christian Challenge as our missionaries form one team under the authority of Church on Mill. Please pray for the continued transition.
International Lunch/ Labor Day Retreat
From now on, international lunches will continue on the 2nd and 4th Sundays of every month at 12:45 in the challenge building. If you know any international families or students please invite them.
This weekend the college group will be taking students up north for a retreat in Show low, this is a great opportunity for them to connect and build relationships with the new college students at Church on Mill. Please be in prayer as they seek the expand the gospel.
Your Brother in Christ,
