Good morning and thank you for joining us today for the gathering of the Church in Troy. Another week has come to an end. How has this week affect you? How has this week changed you? Did this week bring you in a closer relationship with God or do you find yourself a little further away? God, our Father, has blessed us with a new beginning of week, with this time of getting together, a time to renew, to redefine and to repent – to turn away from discouragement, from destruction, from distractions and to pursue the kingdom of God. A new week lays before us with all the opportunities required to have the absolutes of God in Christ. What will we choose? Neither one of us knows what tomorrow may bring, but I am convinced that when we take life one step at a time, when we live in NOW of our relationship opportunity with God, all other things will be taken care of. So, NOW, it is right NOW, here, today…in this building. This is a moment we have, let’s make the most of it. Lay your burdens down at our Savior’s feet and let yourself be lifted. Encourage, and be encouraged, pray and be prayed for, love and be loved, but do not let this new beginning be “the usual” Sunday church service, for it is not, this time has never been before…NEW…NOW
This Wednesday – October 26th – A study of Prophecy
Last week we’ve started a new study of prophecy in the Bible. We will be looking at all the prophecies of the Bible, one by one, and find their fulfillment in history. This is a long study but we will be doing it one month on and one month off. In the off month we will do a study of difficult scripture passages and try to understand their implications for our lives. Invite a friend!
Before that we will enjoy dinner together from 6:00PM this week is Potluck – please bring a dish to share.
Bible Break – 30th session – Our Father in Heaven…Teach Us to Pray– Tuesdays from 9:30AM
Invite a friend!
