Change Of Address
“Someday you will read or hear that Billy Graham is dead. Don’t you believe a word of it. I shall be more alive than I am now. I will just have changed my address. I will have gone into the presence of God.” (Billy Graham)
Today is “someday.” Rest in peace, Billy Graham, and rise in glory.
“The Calling” continues this weekend! I hope thus far in this series that some misconceptions about God’s calling in our lives have been shattered. For instance, God doesn’t call “perfect” people. There are none to call. We’ve also seen in Scripture where God doesn’t always call in an “audible” voice or through a “direct line.” God has His ways.
This weekend, we’re going to explore how it looks when God issues an “open call.” We’ll be journeying through the call of Isaiah in Isaiah 6:1-8.
Speaking of “calling,” we’re calling the men of The Branch to gather together this Friday Night at MANCARD. It’ll a great night for good food, connecting with established friends, making new friends, and being spiritually encouraged. Register for it here.
Finally, we’re only several weeks into 2018. If your middle school or high school student has yet to connect with our student ministries on both campuses, we want to help make it happen. Josh Brake (FB), Ketch Smith (VR), and their teams of volunteers are serious about providing an environment where our students can encounter and walk with Jesus in the context of life-giving relationships and tons of fun. Don’t hesitate to reach out to them with any questions you might have about our student ministry and helping your kids find a connection: firstname.lastname@example.org and email@example.com.
See You Thursday Night or Sunday!
Grace and Peace,
