We were made to THRIVE!
I trust that you are doing well on this fine afternoon:)
By now , you must be aware of the province's reopening measures and how they affect churches...they now leave us about 3 weeks away from getting together as a larger body; and when we do meet (Sun.20 June) it will be in an outdoor venue. So given these events I want to give an opportunity for some of you to gather to worship...The Bible says not to forsake meeting together; and for good reason! I need your encouragement and support and I hope to provide some to you as well!
That being said, we are prepared to do a small Sunday gathering , as permitted by present restrictions, to a group of 10 including myself. There are 3 opportunities to do so 8:45 a.m. and 10:00 a.m. on Sunday and 10:00 a.m. Sunday in Capreol. Please let me know asap via email or text me at 705-919-9523 of your intention. I know this provides limited access, but it gives an opportunity to worship to some who are needing to now !
Below is an outline of a new series starting this Sunday" We Were Made To Thrive!"
New Series “We Were Made to Thrive” – Sunday ,30 May
Have you ever had that feeling that you were just existing; that things were happening in your life that were beyond your control and you were merely surviving?
I know that’s a foolish question because in this last season of crisis, we have all felt like that from time to time. The gospel group “Casting Crowns” has a song about that; it ends with these lyrics: We know we were made for so much more than ordinary lives It's time for us to more than just survive We were made to thrive
We are continuing our study of Hebrews 11; but now we are concentrating on the heroes who had to overcome obstacles… they were in a rut of survival but God caused them to thrive!
The first study is about the Old Testament character Jacob. Hebrews 11 says of him : 21 By faith Jacob, when he was dying, blessed each of the sons of Joseph, and worshiped, leaning on the top of his staff.
That doesn’t seem to be a flattering picture, but when you understand his journey; how he went from being the villain, to vagabond, to being a victim, to being vindicated by God, and finally a Victor who wrestled with God and prevailed; then we begin to understand that he went from survival mode to thriving!
Join us via livestream on Sunday at 10:00 a.m. by going to https://www.firstbaptistsudbury.com and clicking on livestream; for “ We All Walk with a Limp. ”
Take heart and be blessed!
