REVIVE CHRISTIAN CHURCH
THE BOOK OF JAMES // PART 3
COUNT IT ALL JOY, MY BROTHERS, WHEN YOU MEET TRIALS OF VARIOUS KINDS—JAMES 1:2. True faith produces fruit. A faith without action and without life change is ultimately a dead faith. The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus—the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God. Come along as we unpack the dense truth contained in the book of James. Over the course of 12 weeks, we will work through James verse-by-verse, challenging followers of Christ to move beyond a private, intellectual knowledge of God and His Word, to a vibrant faith that impacts every square inch of life.

REVIVE ONLINE

Given the situation around the global spread of the COVID-19 virus, our leadership team at Revive Christian Church has decided that we are moving our gatherings online, and will not gather at High Prairie Arts & Science Complex in Bismarck for the foreseeable future. This is not a decision we have made out of fear, but faith. While COVID-19 is impacting our cities, nation and our world in a very significant way, we are confident God is still in control. There has never been a moment our God was not loving, and to this day He has a purpose and a plan for our lives and this world. We’re excited to continue to gather with all of you. While we won’t be gathering together physically, we believe this has the potential to be a life-changing Sunday as we all join together online as the Church. Join us from your house this Sunday at 10a.

Dear Revive Family and Friends,

What unique days we’re living in. It’s hard to believe that we have already been away from physically gathering together for seven Sundays. We are looking forward to coming back together . . . a little bit at a time. In partnership with Bismarck Parks & Recreation District and our facility partners at the High Prairie Arts & Science Complex, we have determined to open our doors beginning Sunday, May 17th, for two services. We will be gathering at 9:00a + 10:30a. We will also continue offering a livestream during our 10:30a gathering.

We will be practicing social distancing the best we can. As you come through our doors, you can expect to be greeted with a smile. Our Front Porch Team can hardly wait to see you! Not all seating will be available, but of course families will be able to sit together. We will have directions for you concerning our communion and giving moments, as nothing will be passed or available to be freely taken from at this time.

We will also just simply be hosting corporate worship gatherings at this time. There will be no Revive Kids activities, and beverages + breakfast treats will not be available. Prayerfully, we will begin reinstating our regular ministry activities and fellowship opportunities in the near future.

A word of caution: Please stay home if you are not feeling well. And if you feel it is in your / your family’s best interest to continue worshipping with us from home, that is okay too.

We want to encourage everyone to extend plenty of grace to all around during this turbulent time. We should always show grace to one another, but especially now as we continue navigating through this pandemic together. The Hebrew author said it best: “…let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near” (Hebrews 10:24-25).

Our mission at Revive Christian Church is to move people closer to the heart of God. We can see this come to fruition through our Front Porch People opening the doors and welcoming others in to experience Jesus, that they may grow in their relationship with Him, and ultimately be inspired and excited to carry His name out to the world.

We believe that by offering two gatherings and our livestream, we will continue moving towards our goal of uniting people in worship, prayer and justice for spiritual awakening in this generation.

We want to use part of Paul’s prayer to the saints in Philippi to encourage the saints at Revive and we look forward to seeing you very soon: “I thank my God in all my remembrance of you, always in every prayer of mine for you all making my prayer with joy, because of your partnership in the gospel from the first day until now. And I am sure of this, that he who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ” (Philippians 1:3-6).

––The Revive Christian Church Team

Expand
revivebismarck.org/regroups

What starts as a seed in the soil––with a healthy amount of tender love and care––blooms into something beautiful for the whole world to see! Ready to BLOOM where you're planted, girls?

We have the privilege of journeying through womanhood . . . together. This is not about selling you on yet another thing to add to your schedule - this is about deepening, enriching, and spurring on your relationship with Jesus!

The heart of The WELL has always been to see women firmly rooted in Jesus + the living Word of God. We believe the way we live matters, and that we are all called to influence the way others live, as well.

Ladies, would you join us on the journey as we launch a new season for the women of our House? For more info, visit revivebismarck.org/regroups or contact Jana Jenkins at: jana@revivebismarck.org.

HOW GREAT THOU ART

CCLI Song # 14181
youtu.be/xvSalz2rrJo

O Lord my God
when i in awesome wonder
consider all the worlds
Thy Hands have made
i see the stars
i hear the rolling thunder
Thy power throughout
the universe displayed

then sings my soul
my Savior God to Thee
how great Thou art
how great Thou art
then sings my soul
my Savior God to Thee
how great Thou art
how great Thou art

and when i think
that God His Son not sparing
sent Him to die
i scarce can take it in
that on the Cross
my burden gladly bearing
He bled and died to take away my sin

when Christ shall come
with shout of acclamation
and lead me home
what joy shall fill my heart
then i shall bow with humble adoration
and then proclaim
my God how great Thou art

how great the chasm
that lay between us
how high the mountain
i could not climb
in desperation
i turned to heaven
and spoke Your name
into the night

then through the darkness
Your loving-kindness
tore through the shadows
of my soul
the work is finished
the end is written
Jesus Christ
my living hope

who could imagine
so great a mercy
what heart could fathom
such boundless grace
the God of ages
stepped down from glory
to wear my sin
and bear my shame

the cross has spoken
i am forgiven
the King of kings
calls me His own
beautiful Savior
i’m Yours forever
Jesus Christ
my living hope

hallelujah
praise the One who set me free
hallelujah
death has lost its grip on me
You have broken
every chain
there’s salvation
in Your name
Jesus Christ
my living hope

then came the morning
that sealed the promise
Your buried body
began to breathe
out of the silence
the Roaring Lion
declared the grave
has no claim on me
Jesus Yours is the victory

worthy of every song
we could ever sing
worthy of all the praise
we could ever bring
worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
we live for You

Jesus the Name
above every other name
Jesus the only one
who could ever save
worthy of every breath
we could ever breathe
we live for You
we live for You

holy
there is no one like You
there is none beside You
open up my eyes in wonder
show me who You are
and fill me with Your heart
and lead me
in Your love to those around me

i will build my life
upon Your love
it is a firm foundation
i will put my trust
in You alone
and i will not be shaken

moving people closer to the heart of God.
