Pastor’s Letter

Dear Bible Center family & friends,

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

Are you ready for 2022? Thankfully, Jesus was here before we were, is in control of all things, and promises to give grace for every step of the journey.

Thankfully, our own Pastor of Discipleship and Multiplication, Mike Graham, will deliver today’s sermon. He’s one of my favorite teachers and preachers, so I’m eager to hear his message on the Who, What, When, Where, Why, and How of Discipleship.

Join me back here next weekend as I launch our 14-week “Wholly Transformed” series, walking verse by verse through the book of James. If you enjoy reading ahead, next weekend’s message will be from James 1:1-18 and deals with a subject near to all of our hearts: how to walk through suffering with hope. Can you think of a more-needed message in this season?

Each message in James will have something for everybody, so bring a friend to hear the gospel of salvation and/or to grow as a Christian.

Take comfort! God’s promises apply in 2022 just as much as they did in 2021.

Making disciples with you,

Matt Friend
Lead Pastor
