Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

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

This weekend we conclude our 9-week summer “Reset” series. You can watch or listen here to catch up on previous sermons or to review sermon notes.

We’ve covered much ground since early June. We’ve learned what it means to reset our lives around grace. Jesus provided us with a reality check through His gracious invitation, “Come to me all who are weary and tired, and I will give you rest.” We were dazzled afresh and anew by the picturesque glimpses of recreation and retreat. I pray you’ve considered how God might be calling you to rethink, reduce, and refuel your life. Last weekend we saw that God can even revive our hearts by the way we relate to the people in our lives.

Today we make one final stop on this Reset journey by studying the rousing truth of the resurrection. The New Testament declares, “For if, while we were God’s enemies, we were reconciled to him through the death of his Son, how much more, having been reconciled, shall we be saved through his life!” (Romans 5:10)

In reference to our Reset series, you can reset your life, develop rhythms of rest, train your mind and body to enjoy recreation and retreat, rethink your priorities, reduce your clutter, and refuel your life because Jesus powerfully arose from the dead and put his Spirit within you to do what you cannot do yourself! You don’t have to burn out! Where there’s life there’s hope!

“Resetting” with you this summer,

Matt Friend
Lead Pastor
