The Sunday Update | May 22, 2016

Living in Peace When They’re Declaring War – Hebrews 12:14-17

The Bible talks a lot about the peace that God gives; but also talks about the peace that we make. It’s not necessarily easy, and sometimes it may not even be possible to make peace, but it is a rewarding task. Using the right raw materials and avoiding the wrong ones will certainly help. Sunday as we look into the challenges that those early Christians faced and the response they were to have in the face of threats and persecution it will give us insight into how we can do the same.

We will also celebrate a God moment – one of those life experiences that God uses to teach us something special or moves us into deeper relationship to himself. We will be looking forward to hearing of one of those milestones!

Looking Ahead – God’s Global Reach – Omega & Julie Edwards

We’re looking forward to hearing from Omega & Julie Edwards on the 22nd. God has been doing wonderful things in their lives in Tanzania and it will be a chance to see God’s hand at work.

It is so tempting to respond to shouting with shouting, sarcasm with sarcasm, and anger with anger. I’m praying that Sunday will help us break that cycle in our homes, our schools, and our workplace. Pray for a great and life-changing Sunday.

In Christ,
