Hope is such an encouraging word! Hope is what keeps us going. It helps us get out of bed each new day, because there is something worth living for. Hope has eluded so many people. Maybe it’s because they looked for hope in a relationship that let them down, or a career that left them wanting. But reality is still the same... everyone needs hope. We believe that hope’s foundation is found in something bigger than ourselves. We need each other, but together we need God. To that end, we believe God is calling us to do something tangible about that right here in our communities!
 
The population of our immediate area is growing, a growth that is projected to increase. With that growth, God will introduce us to new friends who are looking for hope. We want to make room for them. We have been talking this year about how we can “make room for God” in our lives. A big part of that is making room for the people God sends to us. Making room to welcome them. Making room to get to know them. Making room that is easily accessible, especially for those with mobility issues or special needs.
 
For that reason, we are proposing the construction of a Welcome Center and a complete ADA mobility upgrade for our entire facility. We are calling it...
 
Building Hope – Building Hospitality – Building for Heaven
 
Romans 12:12–13 (ESV) “Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.”
 
In those verses, the Apostle Paul was talking to believers in the church about how to behave like Christians. In fact, that’s the actual heading in my Bible... “Behave like Christians.” We hope you will join us on this journey to build hope, hospitality, and Heaven. Let’s do all we can to make Heaven as crowded as possible! And until then, let’s bring the hope and hospitality of Jesus Christ to the people God sends our way.

Thank you for prayerfully considering how God may want you or your family to participate. Pledge cards are available at the Welcome Center and will help us to estimate and plan this project. 

You can give a one-time gift or set up recurring donations ... chose "Welcome Center & ADA Upgrade" on the pull-down menu of funds.

"UnDistracted: Perspectives on Personal Sin" 01/15/2023

Sermon by Jeff Davenport

Romans 7:14–25 (Listen)

14 For we know that the law is spiritual, but I am of the flesh, sold under sin. 15 For I do not understand my own actions. For I do not do what I want, but I do the very thing I hate. 16 Now if I do what I do not want, I agree with the law, that it is good. 17 So now it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me. 18 For I know that nothing good dwells in me, that is, in my flesh. For I have the desire to do what is right, but not the ability to carry it out. 19 For I do not do the good I want, but the evil I do not want is what I keep on doing. 20 Now if I do what I do not want, it is no longer I who do it, but sin that dwells within me.

21 So I find it to be a law that when I want to do right, evil lies close at hand. 22 For I delight in the law of God, in my inner being, 23 but I see in my members another law waging war against the law of my mind and making me captive to the law of sin that dwells in my members. 24 Wretched man that I am! Who will deliver me from this body of death? 25 Thanks be to God through Jesus Christ our Lord! So then, I myself serve the law of God with my mind, but with my flesh I serve the law of sin.

(ESV)
