Today is Ash Wednesday. Please use this lenten devotional to prepare your hearts and meditate on the life and crucifixion of Jesus Christ, before we celebrate the resurrection of Easter. This portion is found in the Seasons liturgical calendar we sent out a while back. 

Sunday Recap for March 3, 2019:
The Tongue

Mission Highlight: God has graciously designed the leadership of the Body of Christ to include pastors and elders (Eph. 4:11-161 Tim 3:1-7Titus 1) and deacons and deaconesses (Acts 6:1-71 Tim. 3:8-13) in the local church. We believe that elders are given by God as a gift to his church. We also believe that there is a Biblical pattern of the church being called to “select from among themselves” those leaders whom God has called, gifted, and affirmed. 

This Sunday, we presented the three candidates to the congregation--Jamin, George, and Carter. We prayed together asking God to guide this process. Emails will be going out shortly to the members of Christ Church to participate in the affirming process. Let's continue to pray together for our elder candidates and our church this week!
This Week's Sermon: “The Tongue" (James 3:1-12)

“The true Image has been revealed, and the true Image Bearer gave himself to rescue us from our broken images — but it also leads to the incomparably empowering gift of the Spirit, the indwelling, image-restoring presence of God. We cannot repair our broken image by our own well-intentioned efforts…Only when we know the name of the true Image Bearer and have his Spirit bearing witness with our spirits that we are children of God do we have any hope of living his dependent, obedient, faithful, and fruitful life.”

       — Timothy Keller, Loving the City

Main idea: If you can control your tongue, you can control your whole life.
