New Series begins on March 19th

Our Building Relationships series will conclude this Sunday.  The topic to be covered is workplace relationships as we examine Ephesians 6:5-9.  The Bible gives some very important principles about how we relate to the people who work with us.

On March 19th we begin a three week series titled Together.  In this series we will look at God’s plan for the church – to worship, grow, and share.  The church in the book of Acts impacted the world.  We are called to do the same.

This Sunday we also have baptisms and baby dedications.  I trust that I will see you as we worship God together and celebrate life as well as new life in Christ. 

Don’t forget that Daylight Savings occurs Sunday morning – turn your clocks ahead.

Intimacy with God – “The Gathering” Worship night

(Feb 15th from 6:30 to 8 pm in the worship center)

As you may know, we have been in a series about relationships on Sunday’s at Hannaford.  This week we will continue that theme, but focus on our relationship with God, the most important relationship of all.

To prepare our hearts to receive what Pastor John tells us on Sunday, I want to invite you to come out and join us for our quarterly worship experience called “The Gathering”.  We are doing this again in conjunction with the youth group.  We will be singing some very familiar hymns and choruses in a more acoustic style.

If you’d like to do some preparation ahead of time, I encourage you to be reading and soaking in Ps. 27, because that passage of scripture will be our focus for the night.  David wrote this Psalm with one aim…to declare his desire to be more intimate with God.  David was a man after God’s own heart…a man that spent his life actively pursuing to be as close as humanly possible with God.  His heart’s cry is in verse four, 

“One thing I ask from the Lord, this only do I seek: that I may dwell in the house of the Lord all the days of my life, to gaze on the beauty of the Lord and to seek him in his temple.”

Please join us Wednesday as we, like David, seek to “dwell in the house of the Lord”.  God promises that when we seek Him, He will be found and reveal Himself to us.  Hope to see you there!

Grace be with you,

Pastor Josh

New Year – New Plans – New Goals

Many people make New Year’s resolutions as we approach a new year.  A new year brings a new calendar, and with that, a new beginning.  It can provide a clean slate and a fresh start.  It is a time to reflect and consider the goals and focus for the year ahead.

Unfortunately, although New Year’s resolutions are made with the best intentions, they are usually broken (often in the first month or two).  Don’t let that failure rate discourage you from setting goals for 2017.

We will be looking at the book of Haggai for the next three Sundays.  The people of Israel had plans to rebuild the temple but had failed miserably.  They felt discouraged and defeated.  Haggai shared some keys to help them accomplish the goal set before them.  Those keys are still applicable today.  I trust that you will join us as we take a closer look at the wisdom shared by Haggai.

Don’t forget – this Sunday, January 1, 2017 we have one service at 10:30 a.m.  On January 8th we return to our normal service schedule with services at 9:00 and 10:30 a.m.
