It was great having James Everett, Associate Pastor candidate, with us this past Sunday. Hopefully you were able to meet him and learn a little bit more about his passion for music, the richness of God's Word, and the importance of living a life that brings glory and honor to God. Please pray for our church family, as we ask God for clarity in hiring James, and for he and his wife Ali, as they pray about joining us here at Calvary Parkside. If you have any questions about James or the Associate Pastor position, feel free to reach out to myself or Larry Annes.
Throughout the Bible, the imagery of light is used to describe the purity, power, and the perfection of God. With the words "Let there be light," God's six-day work of creation began. Since that time, the light of God has been a source of hope and encouragement. He is our light and our salvation (Psalm 27:1). He is everlasting light...our glory (Isaiah 60:19). Jesus is the true light and the light of the world (John 1:9, 8:12).
This message of God being the source of true light and salvation, had radically transformed the pagan, perverse city of Ephesus, but now, 15 years later, the Apostle Paul is concerned that the Ephesian believers are being lulled into sleep by its continued wickedness. Join us this Sunday at 9:30am, as we look at Ephesians 5:8-14, where Paul reminds us that we are children of light and that we have been transformed into LIVING LIGHT.
Adult Discipleship Class Study: Stick around after our service as we continue our study through Psalm 119. Psalm 119 is a heartfelt prayer from the Psalmist, that can be used as a tool to transform your affection to love God's Word more.
