For our seventh week of our 2 Corinthians series - "Purpose In Christ," pastor Joe preached through 2 Corinthians 8:1-15, and taught that every believer needs to grow in giving, because of the grace, joy, and sacrifice that we receive from God. You can listen to or watch the entire message and service here. Here's our service plan from this weekend:
Pre-Service - "Beautiful" (D) [Phil Wickham] Welcome "I Stand Amazed (How Marvelous)" (G) [Charles Hutchison] Greeting Time/Announcements Message - "Purpose In Christ, pt.7" [Joe Hishmeh] Communion "Son of God" (G) [Jon Neufeld, Tim Neufeld] "Jesus Paid It All" (B) [John T. Grape, Elvina M. Hall, Alex Nifong] "Beautiful the Blood" (B) [Louie Giglio, Steve Fee] Dismissal
Thoughts: It was a fantastic weekend. I love celebrating the Lord's Supper together with our church, and the songs we sang together were great anthems to sing together. Communion weekends are always powerful moments, as we are even more intentional about focusing on the cross and what Jesus accomplished for us in rescuing us from our sins. It was really moving. "Beautiful The Blood" is becoming more familiar to our congregation, so I look forward to continuing to sing it together in the future. It's a great anthem about the precious blood of Christ that was shed for us! All in all, it was a beautiful weekend. God is so good to us.
Thanks for reading and being a part of this with me! Sorry it was so late!
