Brothers and Sisters,
Last Sunday, Chuck told us of three people who were saved miraculously – a woman, a slave, and a gentile. During the time of Acts 6:16-40, the Jews who were not “those people” would have been thanking God daily that they weren’t made like them. But salvation is not a hierarchy, and in the Kingdom of God these barriers are removed…we can all enter in! Listen in to the podcast here or the video podcast. Don’t forget the Q&A, featuring super cute, tiny, accidental guests.
This Sunday, three Gatherings at 8:30am, 10:00am, and 11:30am will provide ample room for our families and returning students. To that end, this Sunday is a great time to begin gathering again with the body of Christ. This is God’s chosen way of growing us and showing us his love. What a gift! Praise God we can do so safely. Sign up here to participate in one of the Gatherings. (Make sure to sign up, as it is important we have room for guests in each Gathering. Many have been visiting!) If you are vulnerable, a livestream of the 11:30 Gathering will continue on Facebook and Youtube.
Two new opportunities for Connection Classes are beginning this Sunday. At 8:30, we’ll be discovering How to Grow with Pastor Todd. At 10:00, join in for the Parenting class. So many have been enjoying these times committed to growth and community.
Our labor for the Lord is never in vain. May we take heart and labor well!
