Let’s worship together as we Glorify the Risen Savior Christ Jesus this Easter!
ALL ARE WELCOME. ALL BELONG!
BLESSED NEW YEAR TO YOU AND YOURS, I want to thank you ahead of time for being in attendance for worship this Sunday, January 4th. Even if it has been awhile since you have attended, it would be great to see you this first Sunday in January, 2015. For many weeks I have been in prayer about all things spiritual, in my personal life and for each one of the HCN and extended family. This Sunday, we will worship the Lord’s presence by seeking agreement for the dreams/visions God will give to each of us and as a church family. Not resolutions, rather, spiritual commitments. What may be some spiritual goals/dreams/visions for each of us? You and I agree there are areas of our spiritual lives in which God desires to use us and bless in more effective ways. Could be greater spiritual disciplines such as prayer and deeper scriptural reading and understanding of the Bible, to being more involved in the community of faith (small groups, Sunday School, Worship, community). As well, what are some dreams/visions God is placing upon pastor and people as the HCN family? Greater effectiveness of current ministries? Launching of new community ministries? Some pastors work with pastoral team and church board only in regard to ministries of the church. My style is one in which I believe God speaks to the prepared and that all should be part of shared vision and then take part in making dreams/visions a reality. When I say prepared naturally this means those that are constantly praying and are open to receiving and participating in said dreams/visions for HCN. Kinda’ see why it makes spiritual sense to have personal spiritual goals in order for God to speak to each one about dreams/goals for the HCN family, right? Looking forward to being in the knowing, powerful presence of the Lord this Sunday, celebrating His faithfulness and our faithfulness to His will for 2015. Grace and Peace, Pastor Mike
