weekly update

Hope you are well! Last Sunday we studied freedom in the Spirit from Romans 8 at the 9:30 hour and I preached from Ephesians 5:25-33, “You are the bride of Christ.” You can find the sermon audio at the tab above or on FaceBook.

This Sunday we will learn about spiritual gifts from 1 Corinthians 12 at 9:30 and I will preach “the building of Christ” from Ephesians 2 at 10:30. Looking forward to seeing you!

1.  We are participating in community worship at American Island Days on August 19 at 10:00 am. We will have church at American Creek Campground.
2.  We are planning a trip to SMSU in Marshall, MN between August 21-23 to visit our missionaries Matt and Emma Heiman. It will be an opportunity to build relationships as a missions team, to help Matt and Emma on the field, and to learn about sharing faith in Jesus. Please let me know if you can attend any part of this trip.
3.  We are helping to sponsor the Todd Becker talk in Chamberlain on Wednesday, August 29. We are looking for some host families to help with housing of the staff August 28-29. Please let pastor know if you could volunteer some space to help with housing.

Please pray for these events as well as Don Adamson’s funeral on Friday at OCC, 10:30 am. PRAISE God for good ministry opportunities each of us has. We pray for Kelly and Marion’s move, as well as many new staff at St. Joe’s and other area schools. We pray for all students and staff as the new school year begins. Please keep government leaders in prayer and we pray for the orphan and church situation in China. We look to God for holiness and lives lived in a manner worthy of the gospel to which we have been called.

Blessings to you and we are happy to be here with you at CPEFC. You are loved and prayed for. He is our comfort and solid rock in times of trouble.
