NT Reading Plan


Thank you for joining us for worship today.

Today, as we move through the Easter season, we continue our study from the book of Genesis, THE BLESSING. Throughout this study, we focus on Jacob and his family as the instruments and objects of God's blessing for the world.

I pray that your participation in today's worship helps you move closer to Jesus and reveals more of his plan for your life.

Message Notes

The "WHAT" is obvious... when is more difficult.

Things change, things stay the same

He was aware of his circumstances.

God confirmed it was time

Genesis 31:3 NIV


How do we know what's best?

Philippians 1:9–10 NIV

Knowing God is key to knowing what's best: His plan

Ephesians 1:3–5 NLT

Knowing God is key to knowing what's best: What’s possible

James 3:13, 17–18 NIV

Merger Prayer Focus: Working through Difficulties

Whenever people come together for a shared purpose, they should acknowledge potential difficulties. Each person has ways of communicating, expectations, or baggage from the past. These might be traditions, or unspoken ways of handling problems. They might be differing communication methods, or past hurts that people have buried. What are the difficulties that might be facing the new church?

  1. Pray for an awareness of the potential difficulties that may hinder the church. John 13:35

  2. Pray for an openness to new traditions. Gal 1:14

  3. Pray for conflict and hard feelings to be forgiven. Matt 6:14

  4. Pray for ineffective systems to be set aside. Mark 2:22

  5. Pray for clear communication of expectations. Jer 29:11

  6. Pray that turf issues will be minimal. 1 Cor 1:10

  7. Pray for a healthy grief process. Matt 5:4
