This week's Sermon: "An Outward Focused Church"  (Colossians 4:2-6)

We see in Paul's prayer how an outward focused church is watchful in prayer, walking in wisdom, and salted in speech.

Question #28: What happens after death to those not united to Christ by faith?
Answer: At the day of judgment they will receive the fearful but just sentence of condemnation pronounced against them. They will be cast out from the favorable presence of God, into hell, to be justly and grievously punished, forever.

No youth group discussion today (7/17)! We will resume next week!

Mission Highlight: Thank you Pastor Joey for preaching for us this Sunday and sharing with us the updates about our brothers and sisters at Sunset Church! He shared with us how although Sunset Church has been well-established in the Sunset it has been rediscovering its identity and reflecting on how they themselves are beneficiaries of a Chinatown church that planted them around 40 years ago. Just as they were planted to have the gospel reach more people, they are praying about and considering what that means to plant a church today. Please be join in prayer that God work mightily through Sunset to make disciples in Jesus!

Another prayer request is for Camptoons, which is their annual six-week long Vacation Bible School (VBS) run by college and high school students, for about 250 kids in the neighborhood from first to eighth grade. Please join in praying for the families that come to be a part of Camptoons for evangelism opportunities, as well over half of the current youth came to Christ through this ministry. 

Praise God for our partnership in the gospel and family ties in Christ with Sunset Church! Let's continue praying for Sunset Church and thanking God for all that he is doing there.
