SEPTEMBER WORSHIP SERVICES at 10:30 AM

Until further notice 10:30 am worship services will be outdoors at the Depot as long as the weather allows us to do so. Please bring a lawn chair or listen from your vehicle.

 

Plans to have worship services in the sanctuary are being discussed. No date to reenter has been set as of the time of the writing of this newsletter. The Council is seeking feedback from the congregation regarding what measures of care would need to be taken for us to be able to hold worship services in the sanctuary.

PASTOR’S NEWSLETTER

“But thanks be to God, who always leads us in triumphal procession in Christ and through us spreads everywhere the fragrance of the knowledge of Him.” 2Cor. 2:14

Paul begins with thanks to God. That is always a good place to begin. We are thankful to God for His forgiveness, for the Hope of eternal life in a heavenly home, for His promises, presence and provision for our lives. We are thankful for the blessings of His love, joy, peace, grace and mercy in our lives. Paul is specifically thankful that God always leads us in triumphal processions in Christ. These are parades of victory.

Jesus wins the victory through His death on the cross and resurrection from the dead. He wins victories in the lives of the people who come to trust in Jesus for the forgiveness of sins and life in a heavenly home. Believers commit their way to Jesus. They seek to proclaim the living presence of Jesus and His power to forgive and save us from sin, death and the power of

the devil. They declare that we are adopted into the family of God through faith in Jesus. Paul refers to witnesses for Jesus as a fragrance that is spread

everywhere. The Knowledge of Jesus is being blown around like a fragrance by the Holy Spirit when we live lives of faith and tell others about Jesus and His love for us.
