SERMON NOTES 3/15/20

AM Sermon Focus:: “A Reality Check”
AM Sermon Focus Verse: Revelation 3:14-22

The Lukewarm Church
14 “And to the angel of the church of the Laodiceans write,
‘These things says the Amen, the Faithful and True Witness, the Beginning of the creation of God: 15 “I know your works, that you are neither cold nor hot. I could wish you were cold or hot. 16 So then, because you are lukewarm, and neither cold nor hot, I will vomit you out of My mouth. 17 Because you say, ‘I am rich, have become wealthy, and have need of nothing’—and do not know that you are wretched, miserable, poor, blind, and naked— 18 I counsel you to buy from Me gold refined in the fire, that you may be rich; and white garments, that you may be clothed, that the shame of your nakedness may not be revealed; and anoint your eyes with eye salve, that you may see. 19 As many as I love, I rebuke and chasten. Therefore be zealous and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears My voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him, and he with Me. 21 To him who overcomes I will grant to sit with Me on My throne, as I also overcame and sat down with My Father on His throne.
22 “He who has an ear, let him hear what the Spirit says to the churches.”

Verse of the Week: Proverbs 16:9 (CSB)
A person’s heart plans his way, but the Lord determines his steps.

SHOEBOX MINISTRY

THROUGHOUT THE YEAR
Specific items to bring are over for the year at this point.

We will continue to have our packing party toward the end of the year. In the meantime, we are collecting packed shoeboxes throughout the year. Anytime you can, we encourage you to bring a packed shoebox.
*Start with an average-size cardboard or plastic shoebox. If you want to wrap it, cover the box and lid separately.
*Decide whether you will pack a box for a girl or a boy, and the age category: 2–4, 5–9, or 10–14.
*Select a medium to large “wow” item such as a soccer ball with pump or stuffed animal, then fill with other fun toys, hygiene items, and school supplies.
*Most importantly, pray for the child who will receive your gift. You can also include a personal note and photo.
See the following link for recommended items and items that cannot go:
