Sovereign Grace Blog
This morning the pastoral staff and their wives are headed to Nashville, TN for the annual Sovereign Grace Pastors Conference. These three days are filled with opportunities for us as a staff to grow together, to worship together, and to be fed by the Word of God.
Would you please pray for us this week?
- Pray that the pastors of our family of churches are refreshed through the glorious gospel.
- Pray for the work of the Holy Spirit as we spend time together.
- Pray for us specifically as a pastoral staff – that we would be equipped to lead and care for our local church more effectively.
- Pray for pastor Rick who will be preaching on Wednesday morning.
- Pray for our kids who are at home while we are away.
Bible memorization is absolutely fundamental to spiritual formation. If I had to choose between all the disciplines of the spiritual life, I would choose Bible memorization, because it is a fundamental way of filling our minds with what it needs. This book of the law shall not depart out of your mouth. That’s where you need it! How does it get in your mouth? Memorization ~ Dallas Willard

Pray for Tom Fluharty and the worship team as they prepare to lead us to delight in our God through song.
The things we invest most in become most precious to us. If you spend minimal time in the Bible don’t expect it to be precious to you. But if you spend hundreds of cumulative hours storing portions of God’s word in your heart so that the word of Christ dwells in you richly, it will become a precious part of your essential life. ~ Jon Bloom
