First Church Year #2

This Sunday brought new experiences to our journey in our first church year.

First, Sunday School was a good time.  One person needed prayer and we gathered around to pray this person and their circumstance.  From there, we had a lesson on unity.  One thing we all agreed on is that we cannot go through this life alone.

I have a college friend who is a member of this church.  She came over and talked with Jan before the service began.  She was checking with Jan on her recovery from surgery a week ago.

The worship service was another good one.  It was a mixture of contemporary music with some old hymns.  I would give you more details, but the flow goes from one song to another.  I don’t have time to stop in the middle and write down the song titles.   I also don’t want to in the middle of singing.

The sermon was about the demon possessed man from Gerasenes.  My friend on staff preached about how this man had a story, but had an even greater story once Jesus had healed him from the possession.  The point was that we all have a story to tell as well.  We all have a story that we can share with people about how we came to know Christ and what He has done in our lives.

Following the service there was a fellowship lunch.  We were able to eat with the church  and get a better picture of what the church is really like.

That was it for yesterday.  Jan is still recovering and does not feel 100%, so we did not return last night.

How was your church service yesterday?

    Our service was great yesterday. Our high school students pastor spoke about anger and patience. He did a great job. Worship was good as well. I especially appreciated when our worship pastor cleared the stage and sang a song with just his acoustic guitar and one other singer.

      Arny, Arny, Arny….sometimes circumstances prevent us, don’t they? I always feel just a bit out of kilter when I miss.

    Great stuff. Our service was solid. The talk was on the church and how it’s not a building…it’s people.

    Our current series at church is on being “unleashed” like the early church in Acts. In fact, the pastor is teaching through Acts. Pretty sweet stuff.

    Hope Jan gets to feeling better.
