Pastor’s Update

Origins series: 6 Days of Creation. Really?

Dear Bay Area Family,

This Sunday we will continue our “Origins” series as I preach a message titled, “Six Days of Creation” from Genesis 1:3-2:3. As you may know, for many, some serious questions emerge when we begin to talk about Creation. We will explore tier 1 doctrinal essentials we must agree on in order to maintain a biblical worldview. We will also take a peek at tier 2 issues that come up like, “How old is the earth?” and “Are those days of creation literal days?” While this will make for some lively LifeGroup discussions next week, I am certain you will find your faith in God deepens as we learn together. Invite people. Your neighbors and co-workers have these questions.

Prayer cards for Collide –  we will be distributing prayer cards so that you can pray for students and host homes leading up to and during Collide weekend, January 17-19. Collide is a discipleship weekend for teenagers partnering 7 local churches in the 4B area. We are praying for the student generation. May they abide in Christ and bear much fruit. You can pick up a prayer card in the lobby this Sunday. There is power in prayer. It matters!

I can’t wait to worship with you this Sunday. Remember, if you attend the 9:30 worship service but could attend at 11:00, please attend the 11:00 service. This will help us with seating and give us the maximum ability to reach people at 9:30 and 11:00 each week. Thanks so much. You are loved.

In 2006 Brian experienced the land of Israel and studied the biblical text in context for the very first time. It opened his eyes and changed him forever. He knew then he had to lead others to experience Israel with the Bible as their guide. Since then, he has led hundreds to walk the ancient paths of the Scripture and to discover the root of their faith in Christ. It is the experience of a lifetime and worth the investment.
