Pastor Ted said a couple of weeks ago that Conversations are construction sites and our words are the building materials. This is true for any human that has ever lived but it is especially important as followers of Christ.
If we claim to have faith in Christ, what should that mean for the way that we live our lives. To have “Faith” is to live as God intends us to live. This morning we unpacked what this word “Faith” means and implies and allowed the story of Philip and the Ethiopian to shed some light on it.
Have you ever thought about your conversations being construction sites? If they are, then the words we use in those conversations become the building materials. What is it that you are building with the materials that you are using? Is it building a structure that will stand the test of time? Will it survive the earthquakes, floods and fires fo life? This is such a crucial part of our life. the ability to communicate but not just to communicate randomly. We have to be able to communicate in ways that build.
The second in a series of messages about the power of our tongue and the words that we use. Each word is a gift and should be given as such. Especially when it comes to forgiveness. Forgiveness is giving someone from the past something they don’t deserve so you can give to those around you what they do deserve.
As we have done for the last three years we celebrated Football Sunday by hearing from the players in Football’s biggest game. We have posted a link to the amazing testimonies we heard this year below. We hope you enjoyed the game and hope to see you next year for Football Sunday!
Have you ever wondered what the most important thing about you is? What is interesting is that it is the exact same thing for everyone who has ever lived. Pastor Ted Unpacks the power of this most important thing about us and challenges us to go into 2019 with this powerful message of truth at the heart of all we do.
To end 2018 we had Pastor and Missionary Sue Carpenter with us one more time. She shared with us the amazing things that have been happening in India and the power of hope in the lives of people. This message is one that you will find yourself laughing at times and being challenged and inspired as we head into the unknown of a new year. And even though it is an unknown to us we know that it is not unknown to God.
This annual service is a tradition that is so special for so many. This morning we celebrated the hope that we have in Christ as we heard from students that attend our school, CityHope Schools, sang Christmas carols, prayed with one another as we look to a new year, and finished the service by sharing Communion with one another as a church family.
