Sunday Recap for September 17, 2017:

Mission Highlight: Thank you Jacob for sharing the Mission Highlight about Bags of Love this Sunday. Jacob and his community group joined wth City Church to make Bags of Love, which are bags of nutritional foods to the poor living in hotels or Single Residence Occupancies (SROs) in the Tenderloin neighborhood of San Francisco. While it was challenging to think about what a small gesture of kindness it was to those who are struggling so much, it was encouraging to meet the people that were receiving these bags, and see how encouraged and appreciative they were, and to hear their stories. It was also encouraging to meet and talk with those who serve this underserved community, to learn from their challenges as well as how the love of Christ empowers them to serve and love the way they do. As this is a regular volunteer activity, if you are interested in getting involved, please contact Jacob! Let's continue to pray for those living in SROs who struggle with poverty and loneliness. And let us also continue to be salt and light in our cities so that Christ's love may be known and received!
Question #36: What do we believe about the Holy Spirit?
Answer: That he is God, coeternal with the Father and the Son, and that God grants him irrevocably to all who believe.
Link to this Week's Sermon: “Anointed" (Mark 14:1-25)

“Scripture is broad and deep, shallow enough for a lamb to wade, but deep enough for an elephant to plunge.” (Gregory the Great, 6th Century)
”It’s a deep human instinct – I believe a God-given one – that we mark significant moments with significant meals. Sharing a meal, especially a festive one, binds together a family, a group of friends, a collection of colleagues. Such meals say more than we could ever put into words about who we are, how we feel about one another, and the hopes and joys that we share together. The meal not only feeds our bodies; that seems in some ways the least significant part of it. It says something; and it does something, actually changing us so that, after it, part of who we actually are is ‘the people who shared that meal together, with all that it meant’.”  (N.T. Wright)

Main Idea: Jesus gave all, so we give all.
