UPDATE (Monday morning, January 27):
Yesterday afternoon, the Lowe family asked that we pass on to you this brief report on Emma’s condition.


ORIGINAL POST:
Many in our church and community are grieving in the wake of the traffic accident yesterday in front of the church, which resulted in the death of one Covenant Life School school student and very serious injuries to others. We will be taking tomorrow morning’s service to look to God and his Word for comfort and peace in the midst of this troubling time.

Please pray for the French and Lowe families, those in the two vehicles that were in the accident, and all in the community who have been affected. We as a church family also grieve for the family of Suzanne Snyder, a long-time and beloved member of the church who went to be with the Lord this week.

As Christians we do not grieve as those without hope, but instead have hope beyond the grave. The community is invited to join us tomorrow morning at 10 a.m. for our Sunday service, as well as at 6 p.m. on Sunday evening for a Community Prayer Vigil.

Looking to Jesus in the Race of Faith

This month we’re taking a break from our study of the gospel of Matthew. I believe the Lord is leading us to work our way through the 12th chapter of Hebrews

We know that “all Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, reproof and for training in righteousness” (2 Timothy 3:16). It’s all part of the living and active Word of God (Hebrews 4:12). We need all of it. But isn’t it true that at certain times in our lives certain parts of Scripture seem to speak so directly to our circumstances that the breath of God’s Word feels like a mighty wind? The Word doesn’t just speak to us in those moments; it feels like it thunders! And the living and active Sword of the Spirit seems to pierce even more deeply.

That’s how I feel about Hebrews 12 right now for myself personally and for our church family as a whole. In so many ways this chapter with its 29 verses speaks to where we find ourselves. We’re facing disorienting challenges. Many of us feel weary and discouraged. Hebrews 12 calls Christians to endurance and faith. It speaks to God’s purpose in painful circumstances. It addresses the temptations we face in times of difficulty. And most importantly it holds forth Jesus. Hebrews 12 calls us to fix our eyes on him and to remember the unshakeable nature of his kingdom.

So Lord willing, for the next five weeks, I’m going to preach Hebrews 12 to you, and to me. And I’m asking the Lord to send his Holy Spirit and do something deep and powerful and lasting in our hearts through his living Word.

—Joshua Harris
