Here’s the email I sent church leaders today, 4/17:
Last month, our women’s leadership team went to a Women’s Retreat at Bethlehem Baptist Church on trusting God in the midst of fear. The audio from that conference is now online:
I thought we had a great Lord’s Day today.
The morning service featured our congregation learning I Will Glory In My Redeemer, having a baby dedication, and a sermon on courageous discipleship from Mark 14:43-52. The brunt of the message had to do with courageously following Christ not from misguided actions or failure, but with a firm eye on Jesus and His view of history unfolding according to His Father’s plans.
The evening service featured a new song called Hallelujah (Your Love Is Amazing). The message from Hosea 5:1-15 focused on rightly fearing God as our Righteous Judge. It was an awe-some picture of God in His Word.
I feel really encouraged and mindful of all that God did in our midst today. Any thoughts from anyone who was there today?
