I hope this morning finds you well and truly blessed! Tonight at Agape, beginning at 7pm, we will be looking at the subject of Heaven – the eternal city in our main sanctuary Bible Study. What do we really know about Heaven? What does the Bible teach? Does Heaven have any current impact on our life now? What will the perfect Shalom (peace/well being) of heaven be like? Come join us as we have a small group, highly discussion oriented examination of the City of God. If you’d like to come a few minutes early, we’ll have some hot coffee and fellowship waiting on you.
Also – do you recall this Sunday when I was speaking about the devastating suicide of a young man from our area with four children? Some of our Agape family (Lynn, Ann, John) have reached out to the surviving family during their time of grief. This Thursday night, as part of our reaching out, we will be having a memorial service at Agape with the family and children coming to it. This will be an opportunity for the Agape family to surround this family with our love and care. Could you come to the memorial service? Could you bring some food? I know that most of you don’t know this family, and neither do I, but this is a wonderful opportunity for us to shine the love of Christ, and be a haven of hope, a City on A Hill to this family, and to these precious little children. The memorial service begins at 6pm, and it would be nice to bring food a bit early. If you can’t make it Thursday night, perhaps you could drop off some food tonight at Agape, to be used for tomorrow. Either way, please pray for this family!
A couple of more upcoming things to know about:
This Sunday, after our worship and word time, we will be having a called family meeting to vote on the 2011 budget. Please make plans to stay a little bit later for the discussion of the budget, and for voting on it.
Also, coming up next Sunday, January 16, our friends at Living Word Church in Pinson will be joining us for worship and word! Rather than having a full breakfast that day, we will be enjoying coffee, and perhaps some finger food. If you all will bring the finger food – that would be great! We will begin at 10:00AM, as normal, but worship itself will kick off at 10:15 – quite a bit earlier than normal. Pastor Bo Johnson will be preaching, and I believe we are going to have a wonderful time seeking God together. In February, we will be returning the favor by visiting Living Word, so that will be fun, too!
Hope to see you tonight!
