Sunday Reflections (December 16, 2012): Sunday Service, A New Year, Sandy Hook

Sunday Service

I was tapped on the shoulder to give an overview of the Church School lesson, which was on Ephesians 4:1-16. That was fun. I always love teaching/preaching God’s Word.

I am getting geared up for my next teaching series, beginning in January 2013, entitled, “Don’t Play the Fool” based on the book of Proverbs. Can’t wait!

Worship service was on point today! We celebrated both those who publicly expressed their trust in Jesus through baptism and those who completed New Members Orientation.

Dr. Karry D. Wesley preached on “Having an Amen Moment” from Ephesians 3:20-21.

A New Year

We have for the most part completed our planning for another ministry year. Excited about all that God has in store for us next year! For those interested in hearing about what Jesus is doing in and through the Antioch Church, I’ll do my best to keep you updated as it all unfolds. Please remember us in your prayers as we seek to continue to be a faithful and fruitful church to and for The Lord Jesus.

Sandy Hook

Those of us in America were deeply saddened and disturbed this past week to hear of the tragic and senseless shooting at Sandy Hook Elementary School in Connecticut. Seeing the pictures of the deceased children was extremely heartbreaking. I cannot even fathom the grief that the parents are having to deal with.

May we continue to pray for the families and friends of those who lost their lives, the surviving children and adults as well as the first responders and officials who will have to deal with the aftermath of this horrific incident, and the churches in that area who will seek to love the grieving, hurting, angry, and confused (May The Lord grant them wisdom).

Come, Lord Jesus! (Revelation 22:20)
