Pastor’s Update

Crisis Clarity and the Ministry of Compassion


This Sunday we will gather to worship and continue our series “Crisis Clarity” as we study the actions of Jesus when he encounters a man in crisis in the Decapolis (Mark 5:1-20). As part of our time together we will be introducing you to a ministry called Compassion International and offering you the opportunity to demonstrate the compassion of Jesus by sponsoring a child somewhere in the world who needs his or her very basic needs met. You can find out more about Compassion International here but we will tell you everything you need to know on Sunday as well as provide a table in the commons space to answer your questions and help you choose a child to sponsor.

I pray the rest of your week finds you walking with Christ in the highs and the lows. He is a Good Shepherd whom you can trust to lead you through. You are loved. See you Sunday.
