2018 Preaching Emphasis

Let’s Relentlessly Pursue the Lord

by Taking the Next Step in Our

Spiritual Journey

The Journey

                 When the family loads up the vehicle and heads out on vacation; they are set for an adventure.  The journey may take them south to visit a theme park, east to wade in an ocean, north to cross a border, or west to see a canyon.  Some of us enjoy going on an adventure through the woods while others would rather find their way through a good book.  There are those who feel like they are on a journey and others who would say they are along for the ride.  In 2018, I want us to consider the spiritual journey which the Lord has laid out for us.  We are using the words of Philippians chapter three as our map for the journey as Paul talks about pressing on till he reaches the prize for which God has called him heavenward in Christ Jesus.  I want to invite you to join us on this adventure in the coming months.  This first series of the year will look at some stops along the way on this spiritual journey with the Lord.
