3/4/2018 Today at Impact we talked about the Mature Christian. Which is a tough, yet great subject to talk about. The Apostle Paul gave us so much to think about we were almost unable to take it all in.
One part that stood out to me was the part about, 6 Marks of a Loving Church (1 Cor 16:15-24)
Do we want to be a Loving Church?
1. Out Reach…15 You know that Stephanas and his household were the first of the harvest of believers in Greece,
2. Serve…15b and they are spending their lives in service to God’s people.
3. Submit to Others…15c I urge you, dear brothers and sisters, 16 to submit to them and others like them who serve with such devotion.
4. Friendship…17 I am very glad that Stephanas, Fortunatus, and Achaicus have come here. They have been providing the help you weren’t here to give me. 18 They have been a wonderful encouragement to me, as they have been to you. You must show your appreciation to all who serve so well.
5. Open your Home…19 The churches here in the province of Asia send greetings in the Lord, as do Aquila and Priscilla and all the others who gather in their home for church meetings. 20a All the brothers and sisters here send greetings to you.
6. Affection…20b Greet each other with a sacred kiss. 21 HERE IS MY GREETING IN MY OWN HANDWRITING—PAUL. 22 If anyone does not love the Lord, that person is cursed. Our Lord, come! 23 May the grace of the Lord Jesus be with you. 24 My love to all of you in Christ Jesus.
2/29/2018 Today at Impact we Installed a New Elder, Brad Shifflett, and three New Deacons, Trudie Winters, Sherry Destafano and Stu Jackson. It was powerful and exciting!!
However, today we also learned that Crystal Hackl, and your wonderful family, will be leaving Impact and going to a church near her home in Livermore. While it is sad for Impact, it will be nice for the Hackl’s who won’t have to drive so far to serve the Lord!!
We are very Thankful for our New Leaders at Impact. But we will miss Crystal, her husband Kevin and their child Colin.
Elder and Deacon Installation at Impact We will Miss you Crystal, Kevin and Colin.
Our worship pastor Steve Hanson wrote this about Crystal.
