Dear Brothers and Sisters,
This Sunday we begin The Acts of History sermon series. In this series we follow the powerful working of God from the beginning of creation to the consummation of the New Heavens and the New Earth. If we want to live faithfully and wisely in our times, we must understand our place within the great story of God’s acts in history. We get to that understanding by asking ourselves, “What has God done in the past and what has he promised to do in the future?” As 21st century believers, we live “in between the times”–between the time when Christ established his Kingdom during his earthly ministry and the time when he will come once again and establish the Kingdom in its fullness. I’m excited to dig into the Word of God with you this Sunday as we begin The Acts of History. In preparation for Sunday’s sermon, I encourage you to read Genesis 1-2.
I will also share with you a report on the Haiti trip during our worship service this Sunday.
Finally, please take time to prepare your heart for the Lord’s Supper by setting aside time for prayer and confession prior to this Sunday’s service.
