This Week @ Twin Cities Church!

Hey everybody, “The Real You” series has been such a blessing to so many people. In fact, I can sense that it’s been encouraging, healing, and inspirational as we’ve looked these first two weeks at two of God’s most prominent attributes – He knows everything perfectly, and He is fully present everywhere. I hope you’ve been practicing the spiritual exercise we ended with on Sunday to repeat the phrase “the Lord is in this place” many times during your day. This has been such a boost to me this week.

You will receive our 2011 Year-End Giving envelopes in the mail next week. I hope you will begin the process of asking God what He would have you give. Remember, it’s about listening to Him and then giving as He guides. We will begin our Year-End Gift emphasis on Thanksgiving weekend. What a great day to give as we stop to give thanks for all God has done and watch as several people “go public for Jesus” as they are baptized.

If you’ve never been baptized after you made your own decision to follow Jesus, Thanksgiving would be a great and memorable option. I hope you will take this meaningful and transforming step in your walk with Jesus. You can go to either of the baptism classes on November 13 or 20 at 9:30. Just come to the coffee bar and you’ll find a host who will guide you to the class site. I’m praying you will say, “YES!”

This Sunday we will take the confidence we’ve received over the past two weeks and take it a step further. We’re going to talk about one of the most difficult concepts for people to grasp – how to know God’s will. I am eager to work on this again because making decisions is often times very difficult and confusing in light of all the options we have in our world today.

I am so grateful to belong to such a loving and faith-filled church. Remember to bring your shoe boxes for Operation Christmas Child to church this Sunday!

Pastor Ron
