Hello Friends and Family! It’s awesome to have you in our services today. It’s such an honor to us that you would trust us with your time and heart. We pray that you walk out full of hope and encouragement as we focus on God’s plan for our lives. We pray that each of us would have a deep encounter with Him.
Last week we covered the first of nine aspects of the fruit God wants to produce in our lives – Love. I have spent my week thinking of Chapstick for my lips, binder clips for my tongue and meditation on God’s love for me through Jesus. What a great Mother’s Day! If you weren’t here, you might want watch the service online or order a copy of the CD at our Next Step Bookstore.
Today, we’re going to hold up the joy God makes available to each of us when we say “yes” to Jesus. Joy is one of the gifts God gives us, and joy is what makes His love so tangible to others.
I hope you will sign up for our Journey 101 class that meets next Sunday. You will get a clear idea of who we are as a church and have fun, too.
Growing with you,
