First Hewitt Family,

The prayers of the Apostle Paul have been a huge encouragement to me this summer. Often written from circumstances that were less than ideal (prison/persecution), Paul’s prayers were still filled with joy and confidence. He prays not merely for physical ailments, but for spiritual power. He pleads for the Spirit to work in the innermost parts of the church. He prays that love would abound, knowledge would grow, discernment would increase, and fruitful labor would result. Oh, how I pray that God would do the same among us! 

Allow me to give you a quick update on our plans for this week. 

Sunday, July 12 - We will meet for WORSHIP ONLY on our campus this week. Our service will continue to be broadcast on our website , Facebook Live, or Vimeo channel. We hope you will join us in whatever format you are most comfortable.

Family Bible Clubs - Out of an abundance of caution, we have prayerfully decided to postpone our plans for Family Bible clubs until later in the fall. I appreciate all the hard work that our volunteers and staff have done in preparation for this week. We trust the Lord’s timing and look forward to hosting these again soon. 

May the Lord be gracious to us and bless us…

You are loved!
Chris
CONTINUING OUR CONVERSATION ON RACISM
WE HOPE THAT YOU FIND VALUE IN THE RESOURCE BELOW

Click  HERE   for video, audio, and questions for contemplation/discussion on a sermon by David Bailey, the founder and leader of Arrabon, an organization that helps churches and organizations become reconciling communities in the Way of Jesus. Approach with an open heart as he gives a brief history of oppression in America and the complex current emotions that have grown out of it. 

Open hearts and ears are necessary in this time. This openness is due not least of all to the Spirit of God moving among us. Let us be transformed as He renews our minds and grows us in our vision of God's kingdom come and will be done.

Peace,

Rob Hartland
Pastor of Youth and Discipleship
