Good morning, Portland First People! I hope you are having a terrific week.
First of all, if you have missed any of the messages in our new series, The Art of Bouncing Back, then I really want to encourage you to click here and get caught up. I really feel that God has a strong word of encouragement for all of us as His people and you really need to hear it.
Maybe you have heard both messages in the series so far, but you know someone who is going through a tough time. Could I encourage you to share the link to the messages with them and include a note of encouragement? You never know, your timely word of encouragement combined with a word from God just might be the thing that helps them to bounce back from life’s struggles. So, go ahead and send that email and maybe an invite to this week’s worship service.
Resilience is key for all of us, and it is critical to the future of our church. I hope you will join us this Sunday at 10:30 a.m. as we talk about how critical resilience is in ministry. Whether your ministry is inside the church or out in the community, I trust that God is going to give you a word of hope and encouragement.
God is on the move at Portland First and our best days are still ahead!
Lead Pastor, Portland First Church of the Nazarene
