Weekly Update–January 26, 2012

Good morning friends and members of Emmanuel Church,

Sunday is a really busy day! At 10:15 worship, we will welcome 5 new members into Hill’s Church Fellowship. The sermon on Sunday morning is entitled “Jam and Jelly” and is based on Deuteronomy 18:15-20–see below. So come and join your friends and neighbors–there might be a surprise or two!

After worship is the Adjourned Congregational Meeting in the Steele Building. Bring a snack or lunch dish to pass. At 2:30, I am preaching at Redstone Highlands. Finally, our Emmanuel Emergent Experience small group meeting is at the Logan and Heather Clark’s at 6:30 p.m. The theme is “Who is Jesus to me?”

A week from Sunday is communion and Boy Scout Sunday. We will welcome our friends from the Scouts.

Grace and Peace,

Pastor Joseph

Deuteronomy 18: 15-20: The Lord your God will raise up for you a prophet like me from among your own people; you shall heed such a prophet. This is what you requested of the Lord your God at Horeb on the day of the assembly when you said: ‘If I hear the voice of the Lord my God any more, or ever again see this great fire, I will die.’ Then the Lord replied to me: ‘They are right in what they have said. I will raise up for them a prophet like you from among their own people; I will put my words in the mouth of the prophet, who shall speak to them everything that I command. Anyone who does not heed the words that the prophet shall speak in my name, I myself will hold accountable. But any prophet who speaks in the name of other gods, or who presumes to speak in my name a word that I have not commanded the prophet to speak—that prophet shall die.’
