8:00, 9:30, & 11:00 am Services


Jesus continues his outdoor ministry of teaching and leading while the crowds follow Him around wherever He goes. From this short passage, we want to think about who Jesus zeroed in on as He made His way around the region. Levi, the tax collector was one. After Jesus invites him to follow Him, Levi invites Jesus to dinner. At this dinner, there are friends of Levi's, who we presume came from the same lifestyle he does.  This does not sit well with the Pharisees, so they question the wisdom in Jesus' choice to be there. We want to think about how Jesus answers them. Here we see His mission clearly laid out, which is at odds with how they do their ministry. How does that have implication for God's people today? There is paradox here that we want to wrestle with as we prayerfully study the Word. I hope to see you  on Sunday!

PRAYING FOR PUERTO RICO

Please pray for Pastor Doug, Nik Andjam, and Steve Price in Puerto Rico with our fellow Free Methodist churches. They are partnering with members of Pura Vida Church to provide architectural plans for future construction teams to carry out in the church buildings that were damaged in the hurricanes earlier this fall. Pray for their safety and wisdom, and for those who they meet to be encouraged by their presence.
