Pastor's Letter November 11, 2018

By CJ Harkness
Installation of new pastor, Sunday, Nov. 18 - 3:30pm People's Community Church

Our sermon topic this week is a challenge for all of us to not be complacent in our faith walk.
Live a life for Christ which is built upon the daily small things that anchor the life of a disciple.
Let's grow together!

Sunday, November 11, 2018

 

Greetings in the name of our Lord!!

 

I hope that you had a wonderful week and that the peace of commination has rested on you since we were last together.  I am getting more and more excited about the upcoming installation program next week.  Please be sure to join us at 3:30 on Sunday, November 18th for this wonderful event.  I look forward to our chance to celebrate the joining of our church and my ministry as ordained by God and hope that each of you can be a part of this special day.

 

My hearts prayer focus is again for our nation as we seek to come together in a time when it can feel as if we are coming apart at the seams.   Once again, nonsensical violence has claimed the lives of shooting victims as we seek to find meaning for yet another heinous act.   We must continue to pray for our world, nation and communities that God give us the wisdom and strength to share His love in a way that transcends all of the differences that we have between us.

 

Our sermon topic this week is a challenge for all of us to not be complacent in our faith walk.  It can be easy for us to downgrade the important habits of the believer and equate them to "preliminaries".  Our charge is to be sure that we not simply rely on attending our favorite part of Sunday worship or weekly program but covenant to live a life for Christ which is built upon the daily small things that anchor the life of a disciple.

 

Let's grow together!

 

Your Pastor,

CJ
