“If anyone would come after me, let him deny himself and take up his cross and follow me.” ― Jesus (Mark 8:34)
1. Surrendering Ourselves to God (rather than to sin)
“Since therefore Christ suffered in the flesh, arm yourselves with the same way of thinking, for whoever has suffered in the flesh has ceased from sin, so as to live for the rest of the time in the flesh no longer for human passions but for the will of God.” ― 1 Peter 4:1-2
2. Surrendering Our Will to God (to follow His will)
“and he died for all, that those who live might no longer live for themselves but for him who for their sake died and was raised.” ― 2 Corinthians 5:15
3. Surrendering Our Possessions to God (for God’s use)
“they gave themselves first to the Lord and then by the will of God to us.” ― 2 Corinthians 8:5
4. Surrendering Our Rights to God (for our brethren)
“with toil and labor we worked night and day, that we might not be a burden to any of you. It was not because we do not have that right, but to give you in ourselves an example to imitate.” ― 2 Thessalonians 3:8b-9
Worship through Giving
As God has so richly blessed us in Christ may we be faithful to use our resources for Him
On Sunday, February 7 we will have an opportunity to witness a baptism and welcome new members into our fellowship. We trust you will join us for this joyous occasion as we celebrate new life in Jesus Christ and have opportunity to partner together with one another in the Lord’s work.
If your child is interested in pursuing being baptized or learning more about believer’s baptism we are looking to begin another class on the topic of baptism. If your child is interested please connect with Pastor Jonathan or Traci Wass.
We host a prayer gathering on Sunday at 9:00 am each Sunday in the Upper Room. We would like to encourage you to attend as we seek God’s will across a variety of different topics, issues, and concerns. Please make a plan to join us next Sunday!
