Making Sunday Special – This upcoming Sunday November 23rd, 2014

Bring in the Full Harvest


Take some time each day for the next three days as we approach Stewardship Sunday and read the sermon text.  As you do so, pray that the Lord would speak to you afresh what he would have for you as we gather together this Sunday – this highlight of the week!

Malachi 3:6-12

[6] “For I the LORD do not change; therefore you, O children of Jacob, are not consumed. [7] From the days of your fathers you have turned aside from my statutes and have not kept them. Return to me, and I will return to you, says the LORD of hosts. But you say, ‘How shall we return?’ [8] Will man rob God? Yet you are robbing me. But you say, ‘How have we robbed you?’ In your tithes and contributions. [9] You are cursed with a curse, for you are robbing me, the whole nation of you. [10] Bring the full tithe into the storehouse, that there may be food in my house. And thereby put me to the test, says the LORD of hosts, if I will not open the windows of heaven for you and pour down for you a blessing until there is no more need. [11] I will rebuke the devourer for you, so that it will not destroy the fruits of your soil, and your vine in the field shall not fail to bear, says the LORD of hosts. [12] Then all nations will call you blessed, for you will be a land of delight, says the LORD of hosts.

Mid Week Question of the Week – Communion -Week 47!

Does the Lord’s Supper add anything to Christ’s atoning work?  (Children’s answer in bold)

No, Christ died once for all.  The Lord’s Supper is a covenant meal celebrating Christ’s atoning work; as it is also a means of strengthening our faith as we look to him, and a foretaste of the future feast.  But those who take part with unrepentant hearts eat and drink judgment on themselves.

Preparing for a Day off – Making Sunday Special Nov. 9, ’14


As we begin to wrap up the season of Pentecost over the next few weeks focusing on Stewardship, this week we at Christ Church will be holding our bi annual “Instructed Communion Sunday: where we teach why we as Anglicans do what we do, and what is the meaning of each part of the Communion service; both The Word, and The Holy Communion.    Join us as we celebrate God’s love for us!
