Newsletter Week of July 13

Good News for Wednesday, July 15th

Pastor’s Piece

“Stop collecting treasures for your own benefit on earth, where moth and rust eat them and where thieves break in and steal them. Instead, collect treasures for yourselves in heaven, where moth and rust don’t eat them and where thieves don’t break in and steal them.  Where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.”        (Matthew 6:19-21)

After a chance to get away and relax, I am looking forward to being with you this week in worship!  We will continue with our journey through Jesus’ Sermon on the Mount with the passage above from Matthew 6.  Jesus makes the assertion here that our hearts follow our treasure.  What Jesus was really saying was this:  what we value and truly cherish shapes our hearts.  What we treasure changes our very souls- for better or worse.  Join us for worship on Sunday online or in-person and invite someone to join you.  And remember to reserve your seats (below) if you plan to join worship in-person.

Blessings in the wilderness,

Pastor Andy Blacksher
