In their well-known song, Bill and Gloria Gaither testify: I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God.
Family life is a wonderful blessing as we love and care for one another. It also has its inevitable challenges as family members see things differently, fail to meet our “expectations” or even behave in ways that cause stress or conflict.
We enjoy the fun times together. We share in the struggles and troubles: Rejoice with those who rejoice and weep with those who weep. (Rom. 12:15)
In it all, we look to the Lord for His guidance and help. We pray for His healing and wholeness. We seek to give the Lord His rightful place as Head of the family.
The Lord is working in our family here at Pleasant Hill Brethren in Christ Church. We are experiencing His presence as we share life and ministry. We praise Him for everything He is doing in our midst! I’m so glad I’m a part of the family of God.
The family is made up of people ... people like you who belong to Christ … people who then also belong to each other … people who serve the Lord and share His love with the community in which they live. Let's never overlook an opportunity to invite others to Christ and say, Welcome to the family!
