Worship: August 3rd, 2014
On Sunday, August 3rd, Pastor Tony continued his sermon series in II Corinthians: Cultivating Ambassadors for Christ. Through this passage we see one of the most important reasons for the Church to deal with personal sin is the restoration of sinners to full fellowship with Christ and His Body. Worship services on Sunday were at 8:30 and 11:00 AM.
9:45 am Children’s Sunday School
10:00 am Youth and Adult Sunday School 11:00 am Late Worship Service
6:00 pm Evening Prayer & Study
Text: 2 Corinthians 2:5-11
 Now if anyone has caused pain, he has caused it not to me, but in some measure—not to put it too severely—to all of you.  For such a one, this punishment by the majority is enough,  so you should rather turn to forgive and comfort him, or he may be overwhelmed by excessive sorrow.  So I beg you to reaffirm your love for him.  For this is why I wrote, that I might test you and know whether you are obedient in everything.  Anyone whom you forgive, I also forgive. Indeed, what I have forgiven, if I have forgiven anything, has been for your sake in the presence of Christ,  so that we would not be outwitted by Satan; for we are not ignorant of his designs.
 Brothers, if anyone is caught in any transgression, you who are spiritual should restore him in a spirit of gentleness. Keep watch on yourself, lest you too be tempted.  Bear one another’s burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ.
