Mission Highlight: Thank you Toby for leading us in prayer for the victims of Hurricanes Harvey and Irma. We told our Father in Heaven that we were thankful for those serving victims of the hurricanes, and those bringing not only physical relief but messages of spiritual hope. We looked forward to the day God will put an end to all suffering and will renew the world.
We prayed that God would mobilize brothers and sisters to bring aid, and also lead us to respond rather than turning a blind eye to suffering. We thanked God that his love is predictable despite the world's unpredictability."
We read the Apostles' Creed this Sunday and confessed Question 35 last week. But since we accidentally sent out the Apostles' Creed last week, we are sending out Question 35 here!
Question #35: Since we are redeemed by grace alone, through faith alone, where does this faith come from?
Answer: All the gifts we receive from Christ we receive through the Holy Spirit, including faith itself.
Link to this Week's Sermon: “Son of Man" (Mark 13:1-37) This week, Toby continued in the sermon series, "The Jesus We Know" through the gospel of Mark, and preached on Jesus' prophecy of the destruction of the temple, how significant this was then, and how it shapes our lives today. Main Idea: Stay awake!
