Happy New Year!
According to some of the most recent research on the habits of Americans, we spent an average of 608 hours on social media last year, and 1,642 hours watching content of some kind on television. We have all the time we need. Let’s make the most of it.
And he came to Nazareth, where he had been brought up. And as was his custom, he went to the synagogue on the Sabbath day . . . . (Luke 4:16)
I’m struck that even Jesus had a custom of gathering with others for worship, prayer, and reflection upon Scripture. If you have yet to do the same, I hope you’ll make it your custom with us at The Branch this year.
We’re underway with the Gospel of Luke! I’m excited about sharing the first message of 2019 with you this weekend! We’ll be in Luke 3, so go ahead and spend a little time soaking in it this week.
We are returning to our regular schedule of services this weekend, beginning with our Thursday night service at VR at 6:45. Kids Branch will be in full swing as well on Sunday.
SPEAKING OF VISTA RIDGE
After this coming weekend, demolition of the kitchen and much of the lobby is slated to begin, and a wall will be erected in the lobby for precautionary reasons. We are on the cusp of a whole lot of action happening in the next couple of weeks! If you attend the VR Campus regularly, keep your eyes open for a more detailed email in the next several days.
See You Thursday Night or Sunday!
Grace and Peace,
