Happy Sabbath (international)

Happy Sabbath (international)

Apr 13, 2018Thoughts

We are a little late reflecting on International Sabbath, but this year we thought about trying something new. Each year we celebrate the many different cultures that make up our church family on the last Sabbath in February. Everybody that desires wears their native garments, everyone shares in a diverse lunch, and it becomes an exciting reminder that God is a God of many colors. After all, we are His children!

This year, we wanted to leverage the different languages that are spoken in our church and put them together in a way that commemorated International Sabbath. The video above is the result of volunteers who shared how they say Happy Sabbath in their own languages.

We aim to share more videos in the future that are an extension of our church family here in East Lansing, MI, as well as our global church family. While we are not perfect, by God’s grace as we provide more and more of these you’ll see our videos grow along with the people on both sides of the camera.

As always, we invite you to dialogue with us, and we are grateful to continue serving you.

Week of Prayer 2021

This unique time of separation provides for us a wonderful opportunity to live a more impactful and purposeful life. The book of Zechariah calls us in this day to both corporate and individual repentance, and reflection upon our Savior who died for our sins. In this time of separation, we are called to pray for and with each other as a result of seeing Him who died. Be inspired and encouraged by the powerful and relevant truths found in the book of Zechariah.

The People Mourned

(Zechariah 12:9-10) Deep sorrow, joy and victory follows when one sees the Savior. This mourning described is a depiction of repentance during a time of separation. A time of all bearing responsibility for his/her sins that led to the cross. Only a clear view of the crucified Christ can give a proper understanding of the devastating effects of sin and only then will victory follow.

I Will Go Also

I Will Go Also

(Zechariah 8:20-23) Many people are looking at the end times as a reason to isolate and insulate themselves. Frustrated about the times while failing to take advantage of a weapon that God has provided. We cannot underestimate the power of prayer during these times, God will do great things in response to prayer if only we take the words of the prophet by saying, “I Will Go Also.”
