Bulletin for Sunday, October 9

Current Series

Philippians 1:12-18, 27-30

12 Now I want you to know, brothers and sisters, that what has happened to me has actually served to advance the gospel.13 As a result, it has become clear throughout the whole palace guard and to everyone else that I am in chains for Christ.14 And because of my chains, most of the brothers and sisters have become confident in the Lord and dare all the more to proclaim the gospel without fear.

15 It is true that some preach Christ out of envy and rivalry, but others out of goodwill.16 The latter do so out of love, knowing that I am put here for the defense of the gospel.17 The former preach Christ out of selfish ambition, not sincerely, supposing that they can stir up trouble for me while I am in chains. 18 But what does it matter? The important thing is that in every way, whether from false motives or true, Christ is preached. And because of this I rejoice.

27 Whatever happens, conduct yourselves in a manner worthy of the gospel of Christ. Then, whether I come and see you or only hear about you in my absence, I will know that you stand firm in the one Spirit, striving together as one for the faith of the gospel 28 without being frightened in any way by those who oppose you. This is a sign to them that they will be destroyed, but that you will be saved—and that by God. 29 For it has been granted to you on behalf of Christ not only to believe in him, but also to suffer for him, 30 since you are going through the same struggle you saw I had, and now hear that I still have.

Reader: The word of the Lord.
Ekklesia: Thanks be to God.

This week’s worship.

Our elected board of elders meets on a monthly basis to work in partnership with our pastors to help lead and guide our church.

This month (October 2016), two board members are at the end of their two-year terms, and will be replaced by two newly elected members.

The list of names below represents the most-nominated persons in our church community who also allowed their names to stand for election. While diversity is a crucial and growing priority for our church, and while a diverse group of people were nominated for consideration, this list represents those who (at this time) felt ready to let their names stand and run for election. To help facilitate greater diversity, our plan in the year ahead is to bring in other voices to our board meetings when discussing certain topics (e.g., racial reconciliation).

In alphabetical order by first name, here are the 5 nominees. Please select TWO. To maintain gender equity, you MUST select at least one woman (although both can be women).

Annie Jenkins
Caitie Anderson
Colby Freeman
Lars Dunaway
Shannon McDougal

Sunday 10/30. Afternoon Worship with Mt Peace

For our next 5th Sunday experience, we are working out details for an afternoon worship experience followed by a Halloween-themed community event that we will host together! Please be in prayer about this day. We are trusting that it will be a “next step” in our growing relationship / friendship with our brothers and sisters and Mt. Peace.
