This week's Sermon: "What Is The Church?" (John 17:14-21)

"The Church is neither a central agency with branch offices nor a group of individuals who decide to follow Jesus and therefore decide to start a church. Rather, it is a supernatural and eschatological reality that descends from heaven in the power of the Spirit through the means of grace (see Rev. 21:9-27)." (Michael Horton)

 

Main Idea: Jesus defines the church.

This week's New City Catechism Question # 9:
What does God require in the first, second and third commandments?

Answer: First, that we know and trust God as the only true and living God. Second, that we avoid all idolatry and do not worship God improperly. Third, that we treat God's name with fear and reverence, honoring also his Word and works.

  • District 10 is estimated to be 30% Asian, 29% Black, 26% White, and 15% Hispanic.

Ideas for prayer: Old Skool Cafe and the work they are doing with at-risk youth, Pastor Eric Gillette and Valley Christian Fellowship, the schools, and all of those working to serve in neighborhoods of District 10.
