This weekend, we will hold our third Preview Service and Cookout at Southern Methodist College. Worship has been such a blessing! Our musicians have led us in joyful praise, and we have been celebrating the Lord’s Supper. I am preaching a series of sermons entitled, “The Gospel Alone,” which covers Faith, Christ, Grace, Scripture, and God’s Glory. We’ve averaged 60 people in attendance including volunteers from supporting churches who drove down to assist with childcare and setup. We are aiming to begin weekly worship on September 10th!
This week, I am representing New City Fellowship at the PCA’s General Assembly in Greensboro, NC. I am thankful to be part of a denomination that not only proclaims the Gospel of Jesus Christ, but also takes repentance and racial reconciliation seriously. One of the ways we see the Gospel bearing fruit is illustrated in this photo:
We are being led by Korean-American Moderator, Rev. Alexander Jun and African-American Chairman of the Overtures Committee, Rev. Irwin Ince. The unity and diversity of the church are on display in the Presbyterian Church in America. Praise God!
Thank you for continuing to support this mission church so that we can take the time that is required to be an intentionally cross-cultural church. By God’s grace, this preview service will not only be a preview of what we hope New City Fellowship will look like in the near future, but it will also be a preview of what worship will look like in heaven––where every tribe and tongue will join together in one shout of praise to God!
Soli Deo Gloria!
