I hope you and your family had a fun and relaxing Fourth of July! Rose and I, along with our girls, just returned Thursday night from a week-long trip to Lake Tahoe. We did some lounging at the lake, played mini-golf, hiked in an afternoon thunderstorm, got caught in a massive hailstorm on the freeway that literally stopped traffic, went river rafting down the Truckee River and saw two bears up close. All in all, we had a great time!
This Sunday, Pastor Norm will continue our summer series called, FOCUSED. Our vision behind this series is to enter into a season where we intentionally regain our focus on who Jesus is and who He has called us to be as a church. When we focus on Jesus, transformation in our lives and the lives of those around us is inevitable. Focusing our attention on Jesus will ultimately lead to an intimacy with Him which in turn allows us to experience abundant life.
As you prepare for this Sunday's worship gathering, I would encourage you to read Psalm 84 and let the Psalmist guide you into the worship of God. In each of the three sections of Psalm 84, you will discover God's special ways of revealing Himself to us. Psalm 84 lays before us a reminder of our life journey of knowing and pursuing God which serves as our base for our times of worship. Verses 5-8 take us on a special path showing how the Lord is intimately involved in our lives--even during difficult times
Note: Our Sunday service continues to meet at 9:30am, with two options for participating.
1. Attend our live "in-person" gathering. No capacity restrictions, no mask requirements, no COVID protocols to follow!
2. We value our online church community and will continue to livestream our church service at 9:30am for those who wish to participate.
After taking a break for the July 4th holiday and to deal with some health issues, Trudy Reusser will resume her discipleship class on the book of Revelation. The book of Revelation unveils the glory of Jesus Christ. Written by the Apostle John, Revelation is a reminder to remain faithful and trust God, even when things around us don't make sense.
See class details below:
