Pastor’s Note: When Our Best is Not Good Enough

As we approach Holy Week, we turn to Him and Him alone. He is The One who will never leave us nor forsake us. Maybe we delude ourselves into thinking our best will be good enough. The life of Josiah is a stark and brutal reality check that even the darling golden boy couldn’t cut it in the end. Paul puts it this way: “we have all sinned and fallen short of God’s glory.” The sooner you and I realize we won’t have a perfect record, the sooner we will turn our eyes to the One who does and join in singing, “Not the labor of my hands can fulfill thy Law’s demands, Rock of Ages, cleft for me, let me hide myself in thee.” This is how you and I will finish well. Nothing will separate us from the love of God, not even death, nor anything that life throws at us, including our own shortcomings (Romans 8:31-39).

First Sundays Together

Our “First Sunday’s Together” are wonderful celebration Sundays where our children, students, and adults worship together for the first 20 minutes. Our student band continues to bring amazing music to enrich our worship service, leading us in some of their favorite worship songs such as “This is Amazing Grace” and “All My Ways“. Our children love the hand motions to “My Lighthouse.” “Build My Life“, a new song introduced this year in our student service, is a simple yet profound expression of worship and a prayer for God to lead us. So awesome to see our students and children growing a heart for worship!

“Holy, there is no one like you / there is none besides you / open up my eyes in wonder / Show me who you are and fill me with your heart, and lead me in your love to those around me.

The chorus of “Build My Life” from Housefires worship.

Living the Adventure

This week, our K/1 small groups had a blast acting out the story of Lazarus from the Gospel of John. Acting out the story really helps kids catch the message of God’s love within the narrative, while having fun and making friends. Check out the LTA bulletin board (2nd floor lobby) to see how our kids are learning about hope – “Being confident in God’s eternal plan”
