This week we begin a new message series on the beatitudes. “Beatitudes” is one of those churchy words that is never used in day-to-day life, so it is literally meaningless to anyone not familiar with the Bible. A beatitude is simply a blessing; and today we are specifically talking about what a blessing it is to mourn. That’s right, today Pastor Chris is talking about how it can be a blessing to mourn… depending on what you are mourning.
Let us join you to bringing your prayers to the foot of the cross. Whether it is a prayer of Praise, or a prayer of Concern, please allow us to pray together with you. Each week, the Faith Staff meets and personally prays over all requests.
We believe God wants to position Faith to be a generous body of believers able to invest in missional ministry where we live, work, play and beyond; wherever God leads us to bless those who need the Gospel. Faith members and regular attenders are on a journey to discover what it means to move from being blessed to blessing others. We give with gratitude in response to God’s grace and sacrificial love in Jesus, who already has met our deepest needs. He works through the sacrifice and generosity of His people to meet the needs of others and to fuel the mission of His church to make disciples.
