Latest News & Updates
Hello Christ Church!
I hope your summer is off to a great start! I've been thinking about something that Pastor Jon said on Sunday. In expounding on the point the we should "Let not sin reign" (Romans 6:12a) he mentioned that, "When we are in Christ, sin no longer reigns in us, but it does remain in us." For whatever the reason, this just put sanctification in a whole new light for me. We cannot ever be totally rid of our sin (not in this fallen world!). But we cannot let it rule and reign over us. Jesus, the King of Kings, is our ruler - reigning over our hearts and minds. Yet sin remains. The war is over, but the battles continue. Onward, dear Christian soldiers!
I strongly encourage you to listen to the entirety of Pastor Jon's sermon from this past Lord's Day morning, as he encourages us to be who we are in Christ.
While you pull up that sermon to listen to this week, don't forget that THIS SUNDAY (June 5) we are having a Fellowship Meal. We still need families to sign up to bring a dish to share. We're asking 15 families to bring a main dish, large enough to serve at least 10 people. We're also asking all other families to bring a side dish or dessert, large enough for your family plus extra. Singles, please bring chips or drinks. I'm looking forward to this time of fellowship!
I hope you have a great week and a wonderful start to your June. See you Sunday!
