Preparing for Sunday + Weekly Announcements
Hope that this week has been a good one so far. As we continue taking a short break from our Romans series, I am looking forward to leading our time together this Sunday. We will be looking at Philippians 4:1–9 and some verses in Acts 16. The sermon title will be “Be United, Joyful, and in Prayer.” We will study God’s word together to see how the gospel compels us to be a people who are united, full of joy, and prayerful towards God.
I invite you to read and meditate on these texts before Sunday. I also invite you to pray for God to equip us all as we anticipate what He has for us from His word. Don’t forget to pray for Pastor Brad and Jennifer as they visit their son in China. Love you, Church!
