Letter from Pastor John 9/16/20

God’s Gifts for God’s Purposes

“Only let your manner of life be worthy of the gospel of Christ, so that whether I come and see you or am absent, I may hear of you that you are standing firm in one spirit, with one mind striving side by side for the faith of the gospel.” (Philippians 1:27 ESV)

Dear friends,

This week, we begin a sermon series called “God’s Gifts for God’s Purposes.” We focus on the Psalm for each Sunday, as each psalm brings out a God-ordained purpose for us as his people. When we align our lives with God’s purposes, our “manner of life [is] worthy of the gospel of Christ.” During this series, I pray that the Holy Spirit will open our hearts and minds to his purposes for us, that we might better steward ourselves and our resources for him.

God’s richest blessings,

Pastor John
