This week's edition of TAB comes from Florence, Oregon. Larry Annes and I arrived yesterday (Friday) for a two day conference sponsored by the Oregon Mission Coalition. One of our General Session speakers is Randy Adams who will be speaking on "Blessing the City: A Biblical Model for Ministry in the Northwest". Please pray for all the speakers, pastors and church leaders, as we continue to pursue God's design for His church.
Join us this Sunday at 9:30am, as we continue our summer series, FOCUSED. We tend to be amazing learners when it comes to knowing Jesus, but how can we become better abiders in Christ? Abiding in Christ happens as we make space in our lives, so the words of Jesus can transform us. The transforming power of Jesus is most effective when we make him the most important thing in our lives and in our hearts. Consider reading John 15:1-12 in preparation for this week's worship gathering. After reading John 15:1-12, below are some questions to consider:
1. What is currently the focal point of our lives?
2. What do we need to get rid of, or push aside, so that Jesus can have space in our lives and the kind of space that allows Him the freedom to continue the transformation process that began when we invited him into our hearts?
Note: Based on the most current CDC and OHA Guidelines, our Sunday service continues to meet at 9:30am, with two options for participating.
1. Attend our live "in-person" gathering. Masks are recommended, regardless of vaccination status.
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 the service, at 10:45am, we invite you to join our "after-church" 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:
