The First Sunday After the Fire

Highlights from the pulpit.

“We are on a journey, It has already begun.

“We’re all one in this. Let us lift each other up in prayer.

“Look over there, what do you see?

John Beeman, Jr., said, “I see a new start.”

“Look over there, what do you see? Some see nothing but problems. People of faith see opportunity.

“Look over there, what do you see? Some see a pile of rubble. People of faith see a shepherd we will follow.”

“It’s God who will build His church back, but He will need our help.”

Using the book of Ezra for context,”God builds us up when we renew our committment to him. God builds us up when we renew our committment to faith.

“God builds us up when we build a foundation on a rock. The foundation of our new church will be Jesus Christ. He is the solid rock from which we will build.”

And in closing, “We are in Easter people. The events of Good Friday will not hold us down.”
