A message from the Pastor
2019 is off to an awesome start at New Creation! As we began the new year, we introduced our 5:17 Breakthrough Prayer. We want to thank you for making that a part of your daily routine! We believe there is tremendous power when God’s people join together in prayer. Many of you have shared with us how praying that prayer has impacted your life.
During the month of January our 5:17 sermon series focused on the first portion of the Breakthrough Prayer: “Make us a new creation. Transform us by the power and presence of your Holy Spirit.” We found that God and His Word is full of wisdom and direction to transform us, to make us a new creation in just about every area of life; our relationship with the Lord, our time, our health, and our finances.
As we move into the month of February, we are going to focus our attention on the next portion of the prayer. The Breakthrough Prayer continues, “Show us how to make a difference in our community and in the world.” If we truly mean what we pray as we offer these words, it leads us to ask ourselves some important questions: How well do we know our community? Who are our neighbors? Do we see them the way Jesus sees them? Do we really care about hurting people? Are we convinced that everyone we know, without exception, needs to find the forgiveness, friendship, life, and leadership Jesus offers? Do we really believe that? If so, are we willing to take risks to share that good news with them? And are we willing to invest our time, energy, and resources in developing a church that will attract, challenge, and teach them to step across that line of faith?
Join us on Sunday as we begin a new series entitled Loving the 757 as we explore some of these important questions.
As part of the series we challenge you to add to your daily 5:17 prayer a time to intentionally pray for our community. A guided prayer calendar is being provided to help you target your prayers.
