“Rejoice in the Lord always. I will say it again: Rejoice!”

You might have noticed that we’ve been reciting the same “Hide the Word” church memory verses ever since last Spring (April 26, 2020 to be exact). Every few weeks, I think about switching us to another passage because the Scriptures are chock-ful of wonderful truth to fill our hearts and minds.

December 31, 2020

I don’t know what 2021 has in store for us. I’m generally optimistic by nature, but I’m learning to be realistic, too. If this last year taught us anything, it should have taught us to be cautious in making too many predictions and to not hold on too firmly to our own plans (James 4:13-15)!

The wait is over! Christmas has come. Even if it was different this year, I hope your Christmas was full of real joy, wonder, and love. I also hope you set aside time to think about the birth of Christ.

“This is the day the LORD has made; let us rejoice and be glad in it!” (Psalm 118:24).
As Christians, we have so many reasons to rejoice. First and foremost, we are loved by God and saved through faith in Jesus Christ. There is no greater thing than knowing Him! I am rejoicing that some of us got to worship in person on campus last Sunday. It was terrific to see some of you that I haven’t laid eyes on for the last three months. And from what I hear, we have an even bigger group showing up this week!

Eleven Sundays… The last time we gathered together in-person for worship on our church campus was March 15, 2020.

For the last eleven Sundays, the church has not stopped being the church. In fact, the scope of our outreach may have even grown some as many people have accessed our online resources.

There are many good songs to sing about the Holy Spirit.
