Letter to the Church


Thank you for joining us for worship this week.

Today we begin a new message series titled THE BLESSING. We are looking at the early fathers of our faith as we study Genesis 24-34. This week we study Genesis 25 considering the death of Abraham, the birth of Jacob and Esau, and Esau's selling his birthright.

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

This week we launch into a story of wrong, hurt, and unforgiveness. Take some time and consider these questions as you reflect on the Genesis 25


Remembering our need for forgiveness and God’s incredible provision of it will help us become generous in our forgiveness of others. The following verses take us back to the basics. Stop and reflect on each passage and underline any key principles. How does each passage help you grow in your ability or motivation to forgive?

  • Isaiah 53:6

  • Isaiah 59:1-3

  • Isaiah 55:6-7

  • Colossians 3:12-15

Forgiveness is not just about letting others off the hook and letting it go when we are wronged. It’s also about freeing ourselves from the baggage that we pick up if we don’t forgive. Read Ephesians 4:30-31. Do you see any evidence or symptoms of a lack of forgiveness in your own life toward others or yourself?


Our faith teaches us to let God bring about justice, and not seek our own revenge. That’s easy to say, but hard to do because it can leave us feeling like the other person got away with it. In the following verses, what can we learn from David about not seeking our own revenge and allowing God’s justice to happen?

  • 1 Samuel 24:1-13

  • Psalm 139:17-24

What is the most challenging aspect for you when it comes to not seeking your own justice or revenge?

This week's prayer focus:

  • Sunday - Our Mission: God, grant boldness and opportunities for us to share the Gospel with others. Ephesians 6:19

  • Monday - Our Church: God, help us be financially responsible and good stewards of the blessings You’ve provided. Malachi 3:10

  • Tuesday - Our Leadership: God, allow nothing to hinder our ministers and volunteers from Your calling on their lives. Nehemiah 6:3

  • Wednesday - Families: God, help us recognize the importance of first making disciples of Christ in our homes. Proverbs 22:6

  • Thursday - Our Community: God, we ask for your healing of the broken structures and systems in our community. 2 Chronicles 7:14

  • Friday - Children/Youth: God, help our young people humbly submit to and honor those in authority over them. Ephesians 6:1-3

  • Saturday - Adults: God cause our adults to humble themselves and seek Your face. 2 Chronicles 7:14

A Letter to our Church Family


Grace and peace to you all! 2020 was a year none of us will forget any time soon for sure. As a church, It began with our UMC denomination on the precipice of splitting along theological and ideological lines within the year; only to have that problem replaced by a global pandemic.
