Pastor’s Preview for April 23, 2017

Hi Friends,

I hope you were able to carry forward our Easter celebration last Sunday into time with family and friends that afternoon. Our service this past week was likely one of the greatest opportunities to welcome new guests who worshiped alongside of us. Thank you for making Fuller a welcoming, warm, and winsome place for them. Together we continue to make strides toward becoming a family that makes the Gospel more accessible to our neighbors, friends, family, and co-workers who so desperately need to hear the good news. Well done this past weekend!

If you happened to miss our Easter worship service, we celebrated the fact that Jesus meets us when our emotions swirl. You can catch up by visiting our website – www.FullerCRC.org – and listening to an audio version of it.

On Sunday we’ll carry forward the celebration of Easter into a new series of messages we’re calling Surrender. Over the next six weeks we’ll be walking through the story of the prophet Elijah as we find it in 1st and 2nd Kings. This week we’ll begin with an introduction into the story-line as we look at 1 Kings 16:29-17:6. Throughout the series we’ll explore how God calls us to surrender those things we hold so tightly to in our lives and we’ll be invited to surrender them to Him. I’m really looking forward to walking through these texts together.

This week we also are holding our quarterly care group gatherings. I hope you’re able to connect with your group in a meaningful way. These are valuable networks were we can encourage and support one another. If for some reason you don’t have a care group or don’t know which one you are in, feel free to simply show up. You may join either with the groups meeting here at church right after the worship service or those groups meeting over at the Raybrook Campus. We’d love to have you.

Looking forward to seeing you this weekend.

 

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Nate
