Preparation for Lifestyle Worship Celebration Focus

Preparation for Sunday Celebration:  09-23-18

Sermon Title:  “A Divine Romance: God Pursues a Love Relationship

THE BIG IDEA: Because the Lord is deeply in Love with you, all you need do is say, “I do”. OR all you need do is receive it.

Sermon Passage: Gen. 2:4-3:24

Sermon Series: Experiencing God

Text to Ponder:  Jeremiah 31:3 “The LORD appeared to us in the past, saying: “I have loved you with an everlasting love; I have drawn you with loving-kindness.” NIV84

Focus:  From Mal 1:2; Gal. 4:4-7; 1Jn. 3:1-3 (NIV84)

“I have loved you,” says the LORD.  “But you ask,

‘How have you loved us?’

when the time had fully come, [I] sent [My] Son, born of a woman, born under law, to redeem those under law, that [you] might receive the full rights of sons.

Because [we] are sons, God sent the Spirit of His Son into our hearts, the Spirit who calls out, “Abba, Father.” So [we] are no longer a slave, but a son; and since [we] are a son, God has made [us] also an heir.

How great is the love the Father has lavished on us, that we should be called children of God! And that is what we are!

Now we are children of God, and what we will be has not yet been made known. But we know that when He appears, we shall be like Him, for we shall see Him as He is. Everyone who has this hope in Him purifies himself, just as He is pure.

  1. Hello,
    I am the new Director of Grand Valley Oncology and from time to time we have a patient that is homeless while going through treatment or is having other financial issues. I wondered if your organization already offers any services that we might refer the patient to or if you would like to meet and discuss how we can help people in these types of circumstances.
    Thank you,
    Gail

    1. Gail, thank you for contacting us. At this time we do not have any such service. We are a small church, and do not have the financial resources to help on this level. We do have a few people who may be free and willing to help with emotional and spiritual comfort. But again, this is not formal; merely when the need arises, we do what we can to meet it.
      Perhaps emailing me at michaelr05@msn.com will help clarify another lingering or unasked questions.
      Michael
