Beloved Dust

Drawing Close to God by Discovering the Truth About Yourself
 By: Kyle Strobel & Jamin Goggin

This book is an essential read for any Christian struggling with a desire to follow Christ.

Are you falling short of following Jesus? The authors of "Beloved Dust" say one reason that happens is that Christians often get trapped in the sin of telling God what they want while praying, instead of seeking a relationship with God.

The authors are Kyle Strobel, professor of theology at Grand Canyon University, and Jamin Goggin, pastor of spiritual formation at Saddleback Church. 

 



Crazy Love
 By: Francis Chan

 When Jesus was asked the question "what is the greatest commandment?" He responded "Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind; and, Love your neighbor as yourself."  This book will challenge you to consider the implications of this in your everyday life. What does it mean to follow Christ and show this crazy love to others?

Note to Faith Fellowship Family
Written by Pastor Neal
 By: Pastor Neal

Dear Church Family,
As we each know, we live in a trying time.  Yet, as we each also know our LORD is fully in control of every situation we find ourselves in.
Yep, there have been a few times this last week when I have asked Him, “Lord, what are you trying to teach me with all that’s goin’ on?”   Yet not once have I asked Him “Why is all of this taking place?”  I always figure it’s really none of my business to try to challenge God with my thoughts on what is taking place.  I’m only to hang onto His mighty hand and walk through what ever valley He leads me into.
With the house fire, I’m just sick about causing you dear folks so much pain, stress and extra work.  Please know that I am truly sorry for the whole deal, yet the Apostle Paul challenges each of us, “Not only this, but we rejoice in our tribulations.”  Paul knew how to look trouble straight in the face and never waver in his faith and I reckon we all have the same opportunity right about now.
Along with the bad deal of the fire, we also get this Covid-19 critter.  Here’s where I stand: Again the Apostle Paul tells us that we are to “submit to those in authority over us.”  So I reckon as red-blooded Americans we ought to do just that.  I have a heap of respect for our Mr. President, and so I’m quite willing to be inconvenienced a bit by not getting to carry on with my regular church life.  As such, we will not be gathering at the church for at least a couple of weeks, but that sure doesn’t mean we can’t worship together!
As we take a few minutes this coming Sunday (say 10 a.m.), each in his own home, we can still gather our hearts together to worship our loving Savior!  May I encourage each family to gather with Bibles in hand, and a whole lot of love in our hearts.  Praise God that we have a loving Heavenly Father who has a perfect plan for each of us as we deal with the present trials!  Praise God that you can bring all of your prayer concerns before Him, knowing that He listens!  Praise God that you can gather your family around as you worship the living King!  May fear not control our thoughts as we live our lives by faith.   Remember we are to “walk by faith,” that mean’s one step at a time, each in full obedience to whatever our Lord asks of each of us. 
I am asking that we all listen to the message posted on Faith Fellowship’s Facebook page by Scott Ridout.  Scott is the President of Converge Worldwide, of which Converge Rocky Mountain is a part.  That is to say that Scott is our denomination’s President, and a fine young man who loves the Lord and the work of Converge.  Listen with hearts wide open to whatever our Lord tells you, and then thank God that He continues to provide for and protect His children!
We will miss each of you this coming Sunday, but no one can separate the love that Jesus has placed within our hearts.  May we each live, love and learn – together, even though we are apart.
In His service,
By His grace,
Neal & Miss Deb
