THIS WEEKEND Ι JULY 4-5
Life has been extraordinarily different for most of us the last few months. You may be feeling better or worse … or a lot worse … since before lockdown. But as we all begin to emerge out of a season of strangeness and uncertainty, how do we make sure our attention is on what matters most? How can we avoid going back to “business as usual” and instead refocus on the essentials? Take the journey with us as we seek to Recalibrate.
POWER Kids wants to partner with you! We have assembled age-specific resources for you to share and interact as a family during this time!
Click below to hear familiar songs as we learn and worship together. Each week new songs will be added to this playlist.
It’s easy to continue regular giving online through GraceLINK! Also available are options to designate your gift to HERE WE GO, 5 & Change and Camp Scholarships.
Txt2Give makes giving online even easier. Simply text the word, “GIVE” to 844-806-4608 and follow the prompts – it is that easy! If you have done online giving in the past, you can still do that. This just simplifies giving on your smartphone!
IN CASE YOU MISSED IT
As a people of faith, our first response during challenging times is prayer. Take time during the online service experience and during the week, to read these passages and pray with your family and friends.
1 Timothy 1:2:1-2: I urge, then, first of all, that petitions, prayers, intercession and thanksgiving be made for all people— for kings and all those in authority, that we may live peaceful and quiet lives in all godliness and holiness.
Pray for wisdom for our governmental leaders as they make decisions to best serve the community.
Matthew 5:13-16: You are the salt of the earth. But if the salt loses its saltiness, how can it be made salty again? It is no longer good for anything, except to be thrown out and trampled underfoot.
You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.
Pray for the Church – that we would be lights during this time and that we would see and eagerly respond to opportunities to serve and pray.
2 Corinthians 4:16-18: Therefore we do not lose heart. Though outwardly we are wasting away, yet inwardly we are being renewed day by day. For our light and momentary troubles are achieving for us an eternal glory that far outweighs them all. So we fix our eyes not on what is seen, but on what is unseen, since what is seen is temporary, but what is unseen is eternal.
Pray for those without the hope of Jesus. Ask God to use this time to help our community and world see the hope found only in His Son, Jesus.
