Message From Pastor Bob Huisman

9:30 AM Morning Worship
On the first Sunday of Lent, we gather to give thanks to God for the gift of his Son our Savior Jesus.  Lent is a 40 day period to prepare for the celebration of Jesus’ death and resurrection.
This year will we join in a series entitled, “Sensing the Gospel”.  We will look at Jesus’ life and recognize how Touch, Sight, Taste, Hearing, and Smell were all senses of people who experienced the love and power of God in their lives.  This week, as we engage the Gospel of Luke chapter 7, we see Jesus touch a funeral bier.  “What is the Holy Spirit saying to you about following a Savior who has the power to raise the dead?”.  We will conclude our morning worship with a celebration of the Lord’s Supper.

Reminder: Bring a non-perishable food item for the food distribution ministry with our friends and neighbors at Byron Village.  Place it on the table in the Fellowship Room.

5:00 PM Evening Worship
Prayer is the second of nine spiritual disciplines that we are learning/refreshing over the next 4 years.  This Sunday we gather for part 3 of the four-part Practicing the Way of Jesus series on Prayer.  We will focus on Listening to God.  A printed workbook/companion guide will be available for you.  You can also register for free to access the videos and companion guide online along with a host of other free resources.

Thank You for your Gifts, Tithes, and Offerings
Thank you for your generosity to Christ’s Church.  We encourage you to prioritize your local church in your giving because the local church is the bride of Christ, and Jesus is the hope of the world.  We excel in the grace of giving when we honor God with our time, our treasures, and our talents.

Pastor Bob Huisman
Therefore, as God’s chosen people, holy and dearly loved, clothe yourselves with compassion, kindness, humility, gentleness, and patience. Bear with each other and forgive one another if any of you has a grievance against someone. Forgive as the Lord forgave you.
And over all these virtues put on love, 
which binds them all together in perfect unity.  Colossians 3:12-14
