Welcome to Final Weekly Email – regarding THE STORY!
FACC June 2023
What a wonderful final lesson from The Story yesterday. The worship experience was outstanding, the fellowship sweet, and reviewing our future was exhalating. I am glad so many were able to be with us to witness Karla’s baptism.
Next Sunday June 4, 2023, Brother Rodel has planned for us to begin a new series that will take us through the summer. He is planning to follow the book of Ephesians.
He has invited me to share the opening sermon for this series. I am planning to share a message entitled, “Where do you belong?” we will study Ephesians 1:1-14
I am so glad you were able to share in the last few weeks as we reviewed God’s Story – THE STORY! I pray that you found new connections in His Story for Your Story.
I want to encourage you to continue your personal study of God’s Word. You can follow the sermon series by studying the book of Ephesians. Pastor Rodel is planning to review some of the major aspects of The Christian life.
Your individual study will give you a deeper application of this wonderful letter from Paul while he was in prison to the folks at Ephesus.
You may continue to use the journal questions we have been using during The Story. As you are reading the passage write down:
What did you learn about God, yourself, or others in this chapter?
How do the events in this chapter related to the overall Story of God’s pursuit and redemption?
What do you struggle to understand or embrace from this reading.?
Write down a one or two sentences summary of this passage.
Write out a prayer to God of appreciation or petition.
How does this chapter point to Jesus or challenge you to be more like Him?
Is there something you learned that needs to be shared with others?
I want to encourage our Home Bible Fellowship groups (HBF) to plan to meet sometimes during this summer. Plan to share a meal or a snack and spend some time together. This is also a time for you to invite Pastor Rodel to meet with your group. You will be able to connect with him in a special way from these gatherings.
Enjoy your reading this week.
