This Sunday at FPCP (January 8th)

January 6, 2012

This Sunday, January 8th, is going to be a significant day for First Presbyterian Church of Pooler, and we pray you will be able to join us for it.

As most of you know, God has graciously provided us with our own permanent church building. On Sunday morning at 11am we will have a Building Dedication service in which we publicly thank God for his provision and ask him to bless our future ministry in this building. We expect to have several guests from the Pooler community join us for this service, and Rev. Fender will preach a sermon from John 12:20-26 entitled, “How Does a Church Impact a City?” The service will be preceded by a Fellowship Breakfast at 10am, as well as Sunday School classes for the children and youth. Please consider inviting someone to church on this special day!

This Sunday we will also resume our Evening Worship service. We will spend time singing hymns and praying together, and then break into classes for all ages. The adults will begin a study of the book of Galatians, an important New Testament book that calls Christians to turn away from legalism (trying to earn or keep God’s favor by obeying God) and live according to the grace they have been shown in Jesus Chrirst. This will be an especially helpful series for Christians who struggle either with feelings of guilt because of their sin, or with feelings of superiority because of their obedience.

As you look forward to Sunday, please also remember to prepare your heart for this day. True worship is not merely a matter of going a worship service, but a matter of engaging your heart in that worship service in both spirit and truth (John 4:24). One way you can prepare your heart for worship is to read through what we will be doing in this week’s worship service. You can view this week’s bulletin by clicking here. Consider the hymns we will sing, the Scripture passages we will read, and the truths we will confess. And pray that God will be at work in your heart to know him more truly, love him more deeply, and trust in him more steadfastly as you worship him this Sunday.

Jesus said that God made the Lord’s Day as a gift for us (Mark 2:27). On this day we can enjoy the gift of both resting from our work and worshipping God together with his people. We hope you will take advantage of this precious gift and join us for worship this Sunday.
