Worship: September 14th, 2014
On Sunday, September 14th, Pastor Tony continued his sermon series in II Corinthians: Cultivating Ambassadors for Christ. In this passage we see, human weakness is incapable of impeding the gospel, in fact, it is God’s chosen way of magnifying His power and the good news of Jesus Christ. 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 4:7-12
 But we have this treasure in jars of clay, to show that the surpassing power belongs to God and not to us.  We are afflicted in every way, but not crushed; perplexed, but not driven to despair;  persecuted, but not forsaken; struck down, but not destroyed;  always carrying in the body the death of Jesus, so that the life of Jesus may also be manifested in our bodies.  For we who live are always being given over to death for Jesus’ sake, so that the life of Jesus also may be manifested in our mortal flesh.  So death is at work in us, but life in you.
