Game Night – Saturday 11/19/16 – 6:30. Details below.
Do this: inspire and challenge each other to take action to show God’s love and goodness in this world. Be creative in this. And don’t let go of the habit of meeting together as some people do. Rather, keep meeting face-to-face because it keeps hope, joy, and love alive. Get together often. Gather regularly before it’s too late, because time is so short. (Hebrews 10:24-25, #PastorsParaphrase)
I love that passage. It tells us to avoid the temptation to isolate ourselves. And on a personal note, thanks to many of you for challenging and encouraging me at our gatherings. So, to help us do what God’s Word calls us to do, I wanted to get the word out about some organized LoveFirst Coast activities coming up.
Nov 19 – Some of us will be gathering for an evening of fun and fellowship this Saturday night at the Wehmeier’s home, and you are invited! (6:30 til ? – 401 Brambly Vine Dr, St. Johns, FL 32259).
No meal! Just bring an hors d’oeuvres to share – savory, cheesy, fresh, healthy or maybe something sweet.
Nov 24 – What are you doing on Thanksgiving Day? This holiday provides a natural opportunity to include someone – or to be included. (If you don’t have plans and aren’t sure what to do, please let me know.) Many of us have plans – and welcoming tables.
Dec 10 – Our next worship gathering will be Saturday, 12/10 @ 6:30pm at 3450 CR210, 32259 (Faith Community Church). LoveFirst Coast is a “missional” church, and by calling ourselves missional, we are saying something we believe about God. In short, we believe that God has a mission redeeming us and all of creation and that God is inviting us to take part in that work. At Advent and Christmas, we remember and celebrate an amazing chapter in God’s story as God intervenes in history and becomes one of us in Jesus Christ.
Dec 24 – Your invited to a Christmas Eve candlelight service with the Saw Grass Chapel. Details to follow.
Put the dates on your calendar. I am looking forward to being encouraged by you and spurred on to love and good deeds!
