Dear Brothers and Sisters in the Lord,
Carol and I are looking forward to being back with you this coming Lord’s Day in worship! Thank you so very much for your kind prayers for us while we were away on vacation.
As we head into the summer, let me give you a quick look at what’s coming up in the next few weeks.
The Session has asked Dr. Matthew Elliott to preach for us the next two Sundays, June 19th and 26th. I will be leading worship and Communion. We are so excited for Matthew’s recent graduation from the Southern Baptist Theological Seminary and the completion of his PhD in Pastoral Theology. Over the next two sermons Matthew will take us on a tour of the two short accounts of the life of the Old Testament character named Mephibosheth, the son of Jonathan. This Sunday, we will study the loving-kindness extended to Mephibosheth by King David from 2 Samuel 9. The message is entitled, “Is There Anyone Left That I May Show Him Kindness?” Please pray for Matthew as he delivers God’s Word to us.
Then on Sunday July 3 we will welcome Seth and Jessica Lewis to our worship service. As you know, they are our missionaries to Ireland where they are currently helping to plant a church in the city of Carrigtwohill. Seth will be giving us a report on their work.
Also on July 3, I will begin our summer preaching series on The Epistle of Jude. I hope that you have had (or will have) the opportunity to get familiar with this little letter penned by the brother of our Lord Jesus.
Finally, let me remind you to be in fervent prayer for the meeting of the General Assembly of the PCA next week in Birmingham. Please pray that the Lord will bless the PCA to be faithful to His Word and to contend courageously for the Gospel.
I love you all so dearly, and I can’t wait to see you on Sunday!
