Hello FPC Family,
January is over and we have been reading God’s Word together as a church family for an entire month. And this coming Sunday we will complete our corporate three-week fast. So many of you have emailed, posted, and tweeted about how this journey has changed your personal and spiritual lives already, and I couldn’t be more excited about how God is moving in 2014! Please keep sharing your miracle stories with me as we continue to read through the Scripture and seek Him daily throughout the coming year. If we remain faithful, I truly believe that He will bless us as He blessed Isaac in Genesis 26:12 and give us a hundredfold harvest! Let’s believe together!
On February 1-2 we begin a new four-week sermon series called, I Am Faith Promise. Just what does it really mean to be a part of God’s family? Being a committed part of Faith Promise is much more than signing a covenant or having your name added to a roll. It’s a miraculous change that happens inside which inspires you to join with a body of believers who, “stimulate one another to love and good deeds.” This is The Church – the Bride of Christ! And our Savior loved it so much that He sacrificed His life for it. Wow!
1 Corinthians 12:27 tells us, “Now you are Christ’s body, and individually members of it.” God has created each of us with different gifts and talents, but we are all one body and are called to work together as His servants to further His Kingdom’s work. We are not to be just consumers, but contributors led by the Holy Spirit! During this series we will look at several different attributes which when combined, show how God intends for us to function together as He designed.
This will also be our first group alignment for 2014. During the alignment, our small group lessons will expand on the teachings from the previous weekend’s sermons, plus two additional lessons. I truly believe this series and study will be life-transforming for all who are a part. If you are not already in a group, I encourage you to find one now. You won’t want to miss a single week!
Looking forward to learning and growing with you!
