This Sunday we will study Revelation 2:12-17 with a message entitled “The Compromising Church.” The church at Pergamos had many stellar qualities, but she also had some areas in which she compromised, and the Lord Jesus brought them to the church’s attention. Pray for our worship team as they lead us in praise and pray for me as I preach God’s Word. I am looking forward to sharing with you this message that the Lord has laid on my heart.
We are anticipating a blessed Easter weekend at our church. On Friday, April 18, we will have a Good Friday worship service at 6:00pm in the Worship Center. We will observe the Lord’s Supper and I will show you a powerful piece entitled “The Cross.” On Sunday, April 20, we will not have Bible Life, but we will have one large gathering for worship at 11:00am. Take some time to reach out to people you meet and invite them to these two special opportunities to worship at GHBC.
In the next few days we will be mailing an invitation to 20,000 homes in the 78759 zip code, inviting people to join us for worship on Easter. It is a large, full-color mailer and it looks really nice. Also, on Sunday we will be giving you new invitation cards that you can use to witness to people and to invite them to our church. One side has the basic information regarding our church and the other side has the name of an excellent apologetic website called truelife. Our first shipment is 10,000 cards! We have plenty, so be sure to grab a bunch and hand them out to people in your neighborhood, work, school, restaurants, or wherever you have the opportunity.
God blessed us in sending Charles Lowery to speak to us last Sunday. It was encouraging to hear his messages on how to deal with stress and how to raise champions for Christ in our crazy world. Mark your calendars for another opportunity to hear some of God’s finest servants on May 3-4. Nik and Ruth Ripken, authors of the book The Insanity of God, will be with us. You will be seeing more information in the days ahead. Please mark your calendars and make a special effort to come, as this will be a powerful time of worship, challenge, and motivation from a couple who have seen God do miraculous things.
Have a blessed weekend and see you Sunday with a word from God’s awesome Word.
