YOU'LL NEVER BELIEVE WHO WAS IN CHURCH TODAY!
What if... Jesus showed up one Sunday? What if he visited our church?
Can you imagine what that would be like? What would we think of him? Would we notice him, engage with him? And what would he think of us - our worship, fellowship and practices? It may not be all that far-fetched a scenario...
Something similar to this did happen once and it was documented for future generations to consider.
In the last book of the Bible - the book of the Revelation, there's a rather startling and even unsettling series of passages where the risen Lord is pictured as 'among' his people. And as he moves among them, he shares his observations on 'how they're doing'. He commends their solid practices and attitudes. And he also points out 'growth areas' that require their immediate attention.
SO, WHAT WOULD JESUS SAY IF HE SHOWED UP ONE SUNDAY AT OUR CHURCH?
On Sunday, May 29th, Terry Wiebe will be teaching on Revelation 1:9-20 titled "The One in Charge of the Church". I once watched a movie about a couple of hostage negotiators. The only line I remember was a question: Am I talking to the man in charge? In the opening chapter of the Revelation, the author is concerned to establish the final authority of Jesus the Messiah. This is important because what follows are 7 letters to various churches. What Jesus says in these letters probably won't matter much if readers aren't convinced he has the authority to address them. By means of startling images and descriptions, the author reveals Jesus as someone we should listen to. How carefully do we weigh the words of Jesus to his Church?
Please feel welcome to join us on Sunday at 10:30AM as we worship together with singing (a mix of contemporary & traditional), prayer, expository teaching from the scriptures, and communion, all followed by fellowship over “coffee & sweets”. In addition, on the last Sunday of the month, we also meet from 9-10AM for a service of communion, sharing and hymns. Everyone is welcome to join us as we worship God together!
