Hasn’t this been a gorgeous week, giving us the opportunity to enjoy the beauty of God’s creation even longer than normal. And while the beauty of God’s creation is truly a gift to us all, the greatest gift he gave us was the freedom and forgiveness of our sins which he’s given to us through the blood of Jesus Christ. Last week for the sermon series called “Christianity 101” I preached on how destructive sin is, and this week we’ll all learn what it means to accept Christ as our Savior, so that we can receive that forgiveness of sins.

I pray God’s blessings on your weekend and look forward to worshipping with you this Sunday.

Greetings Hope Free Lutheran friends,

I am eagerly looking forward to this Sunday, as we start our three week series called “Christianity 101”. While the intent is to have new people come to our church and learn about the basics of what we believe as Christians, I also believe it will enrich you as well as sometimes when we go back to the basics, we get reminded of the simpler things that we often neglect. I pray God will be at work in all our hearts as we seek to learn more about why we have placed our faith in his Son, and knowing we do have that assurance of salvation because of the what Christ did on the cross for us. I hope you’re able to enjoy this beautiful weekend, because it sure beats the alternative (snow)! 🙂

God’s richest blessings,

~Pastor Dave

Hi friends, I am excited to see you again this Sunday as we look at the second part of our sermon series on Evangelism and the call for all of us to invite someone to church the following week as we launch into a three part series called “Christianity 101”. Last week’s sermon dealt with the why of evangelism (because Christ instructed us to, because the consequences are eternal, and because of the joy in our heart), and this week we’ll be taking a look at the how of evangelism. So if you have someone in mind you’d love to start inviting to church, but you struggle with how to evangelize, this Sunday should be able to give you some ideas about how to do that with more confidence!

God’s richest blessings to you as you continue to open your heart to his Holy Spirit, leading us in our growth as disciples of Christ!
