A Punch in the Gut

A Punch in the Gut
This week Pastor Shaun begins a new sermon series called Worthy Wisdom, a 6-week look at the New Testament book of James.  This book has been called “a beautifully crafted punch in the gut for those who want to follow Jesus.”  And this Sunday we’ll get a taste of why this is so.
We get a hint from some of the opening words:  “Consider it pure joy, my brothers and sisters, whenever you face trials of many kinds.”  Doesn’t it seem like pure joy is difficult to experience when we find ourselves going through an extremely difficult trial?
We’re looking forward to this sermon series, and want to be open to whatever it is that God wants to teach us throughout the course of these next six weeks.  While our focus will be on James 1:1-4, why not read the entire first chapter prior to Sunday in order to be prepared for whatever God wants to teach you?  
Also, just a reminder that we will be observing Communion at the conclusion of both the 8:00 and 9:45 service.
Go HERE at 8:00, or 9:45 A.M. in order to view the live stream on Sunday morning.
Go HERE for the digital bulletin for the Sunday services at 8:00 & 9:45 A.M. (which contains the song list and the outline for this week’s message).
We look forward to gathering with you this Sunday!
