Do you ever feel like you are ready for a new season in your life but you’re stuck in the same old tired rut? Perhaps, you have felt for a while that a new season was coming but it hasn’t. Instead, the winter has gone on for far too long. Life can do that to us. Sometimes we need to be challenged to take things to the next level.
The first Christians were people who had to take their life to the next level when the Holy Spirit descended upon them. This Sunday we will be exploring Pentecost. This is the day when the first Christians were challenged with a new reality. We will explore what happened to them and what it means for us. Please read Acts 2:1-13 for preparation.
PS! There will be a Potluck directly after the service. Please bring canned goods to donate to Duncanville Outreach Mission and also a dish to share with others in our congregation! Don’t forget to invite your friends, neighbors, and strangers!!!!
What do you think is the best hedge to ensure success in life? Is it financial security? A good education? A beautiful wife, the perfect husband, or a home in the right neighborhood? Whew! That sounds like a lot of pressure! There are a lot of “advice-givers” out there telling us one thing or another. Who do you listen to?
Jesus said be careful. Discern well, because the consequences of following the wrong path are great. But with that warning Jesus also assures us of a great blessing when we obey His words. We will talk about that this Sunday. And, to celebrate our mothers, the girls perform a praise dance and the choir will be “Men Only.” We baptize one of our newest members, too. It’s a full day! Can’t wait to see you – 9:15 for Sunday School and 10:30 for Worship.

Narrow gate versus wide gate, easy road versus hard road. Jesus says the hard narrow gate leads to life. Ouch! Why would we want to travel the hard, narrow road? Doesn’t Jesus know that convenience and ease sells? Perhaps Jesus isn’t that great a salesman. I mean think of the ads that appeal! He needs a much more catchy slogan than narrow gate…hard road…few find it.
This is how Jesus summarizes His most famous sermon. Did He say it with a smile on His face? Or, enticing us with “the best kept secret?” I say let’s explore it! Sunday we will do just that. Sunday School is at 9:15 – for all levels, from The Basics to the more in depth. Worship follows at 10:30 WITH STORYTELLER CAROL ORWIG. I can’t wait! See you then!
