Do you come to our gathered worship service expecting God to speak to you through his Word? We encourage you to prayerfully read through the passage that will be preached prior to the service to help you prepare.
This short film fits well with our passage for this week, reminding us that “My brothers, these things ought not to be so”. (from the Desiring God 2008 National Conference: The Power of Words and the Wonder of God)
This one fits very well with our current Sunday school class for adults and youth (grades 6-12)
I firmly believe the greatest beneficiaries of this relationship aren’t the people among us who have special needs, but those of us who get to be in their company. . .
Sometimes God shows up in the most unexpected ways.
If not for William, people in our church would know Jesus less. . .
Oh, how we need the William’s and Cade’s and Katie’s of the world to help us see the world, help us see God, and help us see reality, through their eyes.
It may be that these beautifully broken friends represent the very perspective that we need in the sometimes-difficult journey of making our peace with God.
Because we are all disabled.
And we all have special needs.
This is what’s meant by soli Deo gloria, "to the glory of God alone." There’s no room in Reformation theology for human boasting. No one can claim their salvation or their knowledge of God is down to their intellect, morality, or religion. It’s all of God from start and finish. That’s our great hope and confidence. Our salvation is founded on the certain promises of God and the finished work of Christ. And if it’s all of God from start to finish, then the glory goes to him alone.
