This Sunday we will talk about this idea of "my Church." The first time we see the word "Church" being used is by Jesus in Matthew 16:18. Jesus had just asked His disciples who they thought He was, and Peter stood up and said, "You are the Messiah, the Son of the living God," and Jesus replied, " . . . on this rock I will build my church, and the gates of Hades will not overcome it." We will discover this Sunday that "my church" really isn't MY Church, but it is Christ's and we simply follow Him.
This Sunday we will finish out our New Beginnings sermon series talking about "My Ministry." Our scripture focus will be 1 Timothy 6:11.
If you are a believer in Christ, then you have been called to serve the Lord in ministry somewhere. It could be in your neighborhood, at your workplace, or in the church.
Our message will highlight the importance of discovering our ministry and what we need to pursue in order to make ministry effective.
This Sunday, we will continue our New Beginnings series by talking about our devotion. The question we will ask is, "How important is our personal devotion to the edification of the Lord and His church?" Does our level of devotion factor into the strengthening of the church?
What we discover is a resounding, "Yes!" In Acts 2:42-47, we are told about the early church, "They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer ... And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved."
Join us Sunday at Parkview High School as we discuss the importance of "My Devotion."
So what is religion or spirituality all about? Why is it important? And where does Jesus factor in to this equation?
This Sunday we will unpack the story of a young man who was in search of answers to these questions. However, the most interesting part of the story occurs when the young man discovers the answer isn't found in himself and walks away sad.
We will learn that "my" spirituality doesn't depend on me, but it hinges upon Jesus.
