Intro for friday
We hope you're able to join us tomorrow night, here is Pastor Paul setting us up for Friday Night Church
EPHESIANS 1:1-10 - NIV
1 Paul, an apostle of Christ Jesus by the will of God,
To God’s holy people in Ephesus,[a] the faithful in Christ Jesus:
2 Grace and peace to you from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
Praise for Spiritual Blessings in Christ
3 Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ, who has blessed us in the heavenly realms with every spiritual blessing in Christ. 4 For he chose us in him before the creation of the world to be holy and blameless in his sight. In love 5 he[b] predestined us for adoption to sonship[c] through Jesus Christ, in accordance with his pleasure and will— 6 to the praise of his glorious grace, which he has freely given us in the One he loves. 7 In him we have redemption through his blood, the forgiveness of sins, in accordance with the riches of God’s grace 8 that he lavished on us. With all wisdom and understanding, 9 he[d] made known to us the mystery of his will according to his good pleasure, which he purposed in Christ, 10 to be put into effect when the times reach their fulfillment—to bring unity to all things in heaven and on earth under Christ.
Whether you're part of our regular community or whether it's your first interaction with City Church Preston, you're able to give towards the work of the church.
We've made an online giving option available, just click on the Giving button below to choose a gift amount as a one-off or recurring gift.
There are more in the full study pack, but here are a few questions to get us thinking
What do we pray for the church? What do we see as important at this moment? Is this different locally, nationally and globally?
Can we greet people with grace and peace? If we do, how do we make this kore then just words?
Do any or these resonate with us and mean more to us personally?
If we share Jesus victory, what does that mean for us? How can we share the victory that Jesus has already won?
