Dear Friends –
Last night the Oak Hills session began its meeting with Jesus’ words from John 7:38: “Whoever believes in me… rivers of living water will flow from within them.” Elder Joan Spencer reminded us that the work of Christ in us is like “a river of water, flowing out to bring blessings to others.” I pray that today you will know the rivers of life flowing in and through you, bringing life!
This Sunday is a special day. At long last, our choir will debut “A Song of Zion” written by composer Mary McDonald in honor of Gary Miille’s 25th anniversary as our choir director. Additionally, we’ll dig into the very first sermon ever preached, finding again the anchor of our souls in the story of Jesus Christ. Join us! 10am in person or online.
Other Important Reminders:
- Thursdays, 6:30-8pm – “Philippians: A Life Worth Living” adult bible study, with dessert and discussion. Fireside room. (firstname.lastname@example.org).
- Saturday, 9am – Backpack Buddies Packing (louise_Anderson@wycliffe.org).
- Saturday, 9-12 – Elementary & Youth Serve Day (and donut party). Meet at the church, ready to pitch in! (email@example.com).
Here is your verse for today: “I pray that you, being rooted and established in love,may have power, together with all the Lord’s holy people, to grasp how wide and long and high and deep is the love of Christ, and to know this love that surpasses knowledge—that you may be filled to the measure of all the fullness of God.” (Ephesians 3:17-19).
In His Love,
