Christ Church Family Update – Week of Sunday, September 13

Dear Christ Church Family,
As we continued our series about the Kingdom of Heaven on Sunday, we focused on the power of faith. Gleaning from the closing verses of Matthew 13, we were reminded how faith is the fuel that kindles the Kingdom in our hearts. This faith is not only what we believe in our minds but is ultimately manifested in our hearts and how we live.

A few weeks ago, you helped mobilize our Martha’s Pantry and distributed 500 bags of groceries across our city! For some, this was an important act of faith to believe that God was calling you to give the groceries to a certain person and act on that belief to give them away. We are still hearing wonderful stories of hope both from those who distributed and received these bags.

One of our members felt led to give their bag of groceries to someone they knew who has demonstrated unshakable faith in the midst of difficult circumstances. The story is shared below, and we hope you will take a moment to read it and be encouraged.

Finally, we look forward to gathering with you this Sunday at 9am for Worship on the Lawn!

By His Grace and In His Peace,

Pastor Ben & the Christ Church Staff
