Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

Welcome to church! Thanks for visiting on campus, online, or on TV.

It’s an absolute joy to be back from vacation! Sarah and I missed you, and I particularly missed speaking over the last several weekends. My gratitude continues for our Elder Board who was kind to give our family a full month’s sabbatical (June) in honor of our five-year anniversary at Bible Center Church.

If you missed the first two messages of our 9-week summer Reset series (by Pastors Mike Graham and Ryan Bandy), you’ll want to watch or listen here. I listened to one while walking on the Florida beach and to the other while mowing grass back when I returned home. Both sermons taught me something and stirred me to take a step in my spiritual life. You’ll be glad you watched or listened!

It’s my privilege to pick up on week #3 and deliver the remaining seven messages in this series. Today we’re surveying what the Bible teaches about recreation, particularly as it manifests in our hobbies.

Are you on the brink of burnout or in the midst of a breakdown? Are you exhausted, depressed, anxious, stressed, or joyless? Thankfully, there’s good news, and today’s message is part of the solution.

If you’d like to follow along with David Murray’s book that complements this series, you can order it here. I am finding the contents of this book to be life-changing.

“Resetting” with you,

Matt Friend • Lead Pastor
