Praise God for what He did in our services on Sunday! It was so good to worship together. The Jehovah Names of God series has been such an encouragement to me so far and I pray it has been to you as well. Next week I will post on Jehovah-Rohi, but for now I wanted to mention some exciting things that are coming in the months ahead.
First, this weekend we set our clocks back. I know that’s not all that exciting because we lose an hour of sleep, but we will have donuts for you when you get to church! Come hungry! We will also be looking at what it means that God is Jehovah-Tsidkenu, God my Righteousness. It will be a great day!
Easter is just over a month away. Our Good Friday service will be at 7:00 p.m. Then, our Easter services begin at 5:00 p.m. on Saturday. The Sunday service times are 7:30, 9:00, and 10:45 a.m. for Hampton, Harbour View, Greenbrier, and York River. Smithfield and Gloucester will have services at 9:00 and 10:45 a.m. Make plans now to invite your family and friends and join us!
Additionally, more Goodbye Fear books have been ordered! The response was overwhelming right before Christmas and we are excited to let you know that more will be in right around Easter. Stay tuned for announcements on when you can purchase. They are still only $5 and make great gifts! (Side note: if you missed the announcement on Sunday, the Parenting Your Parents book goes through Psalm 23, which is where we read about Jehovah-Rohi, God my Shepherd. You can find it here).
April 30-May 7 is 757 Strong Week. While we serve our community all year, this is a week that we really focus on taking the church to the cities around us. Talk to your group, family, or friends and start thinking about what you can do to make a difference in the name of Jesus.
Spring is a time of new life and growth. God has certainly been at work in 2022 and I am praying that this spring we will see that spiritual new life and growth continue.
The best is yet to come!
