Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

Welcome to church! We’re so glad to have you with us whether in person, online, or on TV.

I trust you’ve been able to get outside and enjoy the fresh air this week. There’s just something about the transition into spring that naturally encourages and energizes us!

This weekend, we’ll conclude our Renewed series with one last look at the “end” of the gospel story—how God will restore all that sin has broken. Jesus is coming again to renew and restore all things! In the future resurrection, God wants to restore everything life has taken from you. This is the grand finale of God’s storyline, and it has been God’s goal since the beginning.

We’re only slightly more than a week away from welcoming Dr. Gregg Allison to our campus. His visit couldn’t be more timely since his topics will dive a little deeper into theology, exploring how we came to believe what we believe. If you haven’t yet signed up for his Saturday class on March 20 (8:30 AM-1 PM), there’s still time! I think you’ll thoroughly enjoy his teaching and depth of knowledge.

Pastor Mike Graham, our Pastor of Discipleship and Multiplication, will bring this weekend’s message. I’m so thankful for both his camaraderie and willingness to step in while I’m away. Say a prayer for him as he prepares to speak.

Longing for heaven with you,

Matt Friend • Lead Pastor

P.S. For everyone’s safety, we’ll use the same pre-packaged communion format that we’ve used throughout the pandemic. Be sure to pick up yours at the worship center doors.
