This week's Sermon: "God Breaks In*" (Genesis 3)
*The recorded sermon will be available online on Sunday, 2/7

“The effects of sin touch all of creation; no created thing is in principle untouched by the corrosive effects of the fall.” (A.Wolters) The world is broken, but God is not done with it. And no matter how broken you are, God is not done with you.


Main Idea: We have hope because God breaks in.

Mission Highlight: Thank you Stella for sharing about San Francisco's District 9! Some facts about the neighborhood:
  • District 9 encompasses some of the most diverse, vibrant, and culturally rich neighborhoods in San Francisco – the Mission, Bernal Heights, St. Mary’s Park, and Portola.
  • District 9 is estimated to be 44% White, 43% Hispanic, 23% Asian, and 4% Black.
  • About 50% of the residents of District 9 were born in another country.
  • Over 40% of the residents of District 9 have a bachelors degree or higher.
Let's continue to pray for District 9, its people, the neighborhood, and the various ministries God is working through there, that God's kingdom would come, and that it would be in District 9 as it is in heaven.
