If I were to ask you, "Who is Jesus to you...personally?", how would you respond? Before you answer, in Matthew 16:15, Jesus asked this same question of his disciples and Simon Peter's response received praise from Jesus. Why? Simon Peter's answer wasn't based on education, it wasn't based on speculation, and it wasn't based on what others said about Jesus. Simon Peter answered the question solely on the foundation of his personal experiences with Jesus. So again, how would you answer the question, "Who is Jesus to you?"
Join us this Sunday, November 1st at 9:30am, as we continue our series Surprise the World. This week, we will look at the difference between learning about Jesus and simply learning Jesus. Successfully sharing Jesus as the reason for the hope that we have begins with learning Jesus.
For those who are unable to attend, Sunday's service will be available via livestream on youtube beginning at 9:30am. You can access the livestream on our website.
After the service please consider joining us at 11:00am for our "after-church" gathering on zoom.
Also, beginning this Sunday, Pastor Roger will begin a 4 week discipleship class utilizing the book, Habits for our Holiness, by Philip Nation. Through this 4 week study, we will look at how our spiritual disciplines are meant to be practiced in community and on mission. The class begins at 10:45am and each participant will receive a free copy of the book, Habits for Holiness.
Finally, because of the restrictions on in-person gatherings, the memorial service for Carolyn Hext, scheduled for tomorrow (Saturday) at 1:00pm is by invitation only. However, the service will be available via livestream. I will send out a link tomorrow (Saturday) morning with a link to the livestream.
See you on Sunday.
Doug Boyd - Sr. Pastor
