Dear Church Family and Friends,
This Sunday will be having communion and a fellowship meal after the Service! Please bring a dish (or two) of food to share! Following the meal there will be a Baby Shower for Jensina Printz! Please plan to stay for the meal following our Sunday Service. Our fellowship meals are a great way to get to know other church family members and build unity in the body of Christ!
The Civil Righteousness Conference starts tomorrow (Friday) evening at 7:00 at Connect Church located at 2080 Lambs Road in Charlottesville. The conference lasts through Saturday night. I am so excited about this C-HOP sponsored event. I feel sure that this conference has the potential to change the spiritual environment of our city. The press has been all over this event! I just did an radio interview with Joe Thomas this morning at 8:00am on WCHV (107.5 FM.) This conference will be about transformation and living in the love and power of God. I hope that everyone will feel invited to come for any or all of the event! For more information & registration follow this link: https://www.charlottesvillehop.com/2018-spring-conference
This coming Sunday we will continue our Focus on the Word series: The Kingdom of God. This Sunday we will be taking a look at the Parable of the Sower in Matthew 13:1-23. If you get an opportunity please read this passage in preparation for Sunday. The Kingdom of God was Jesus primary message. The kingdom of God is even featured in the Lord’s prayer when Jesus taught us to pray: “Your kingdom come, your will be done, on earth as it is in heaven.” It seems that the Kingdom of God on the earth was the primary focus of Jesus life and ministry. Because of this, we will make it our primary focus for the next 12 weeks.
Our days for Fasting and Prayer this next month are June 4-8th. This time of fasting and prayer will conclude with a prayer meeting at Marie Marlein’s home on June 8th at 7:00pm. Please note that the church will be open for prayer every Thursday from 8am to 5:00pm as well.
In preparation for the launch of our small groups (house church fellowships) we will host a Cell Leadership training course consisting or 4 sessions starting June 14th @ 7:00pm. If you are interested in hosting an in-home small group please sign up on the sign-up sheet in the entryway!
See you Sunday!
Pastor Jon Quesenberry
