We take a momentary break from our FIRE series to reflect upon the events that have impacted the lives of so many in Florida this week. The arrival of Hurricane Ian. We all experienced the storm in different ways. For some it was tough, for some it was easy, for some it was stressful, and for some it was a welcomed couple of days off. No matter how you experienced it the one thing we have in common is that we went through the storm. So you are indeed a storm survivor. Today we celebrate the Savior that we find in the midst of storms and the Messiah who teaches us in the midst of the storms. This is a celebration of His goodness and a shout out to you – you storm survivor!
Thanksgiving weekend arrives and once again God has given us moments to celebrate Who He is and remember what He has done. When that happens, our hearts can’t help but being joyful and dare we say – “thankful!” Today we want to let you know how thankful we are to God for His love, for the gift He gives us in one another, and how thankful we are for each of you – Happy Thanksgiving
In many ways it seems like it was just yesterday. The horror of the terrorist attacks gripped the world on September 11, 2001. As a nation mourned with shock and grief, we discovered that as only God can do, something amazing emerged from the tragedy. As a nation we have promised we would never forget. Today in this time of worship, we remember, and rediscover some things that should shape our lives today. This will be a reflection service like none you have attended before.
Happy Independence Day! What an amazing day this is in the life of our nation as we celebrate the freedom that we have. Believe it or not, the fact that the 4th of July is on a Sunday is perfect because the best place for a real American Celebration is in a church where the name of Jesus is being proclaimed. Many people will celebrate today and never understand what the real blessing of freedom is and what it takes to experience it. Today at The Church @ 434 we will celebrate our independence with a spiritual declaration of dependence…and find out what it means to be free!
