Hey Wildwood Family!!
It’s been an alarming week. No, I’m not referring to Covid 19 issues. I’m referring to the disturbing events in Minneapolis and the reactions around the country. It is startling that such events can happen in our country. People are hurting, frustrated and angry. Our governmental and civic leaders need to act speedily and with wisdom. Now is a vital time for us to pray for our leaders as the Apostle Paul calls us to do in I Timothy 2:1-6.
Indeed, our Savior desires for ALL people to be saved and come to the knowledge of the truth. There is one God and one mediator between God and men, Christ Jesus, who gave himself as a ransom for ALL. I pray that this does not simply become an opportunity for people to act out in their flesh, but rather to seek ways to love and serve one another without wrath and dissension (Galatians 5:13; 1 Timothy 2:8). Let’s pray that way!
Well, this Sunday is the last day of May…we jump into June on Monday! Wow. Our service plan remains the same for Sunday and we are excited to have senior recognition in both services. First, we are continuing our online streaming church service which will be live at 9:30 am (although you can access it after 9:30 anytime). Go to wildwoodchurch.org/live to access it.
Second, we are again planning an outside in-person worship service at 11 am (same music and message) in our southeast parking by the children’s building. This is a “bring your own lawn chair/folding chair” outdoor gathering. Weather-wise it will be sunny on Sunday so bring a hat or some sun protection.
The title of this Sunday’s message from our Anchored series is “Singing in the Storm pt. 1” from Habakkuk chapter three. This chapter is a prayer song composed by Habakkuk who also played stringed instruments (see the last phrase in the book). His song is going to praise God for how He is always at work, how He is always in control, and how He always provides salvation.
Hope to “see” you Sunday either in the Livestream or in-person at 11 am outside.
