If you have a proper view of who God is, you will think of things the way they should be. A.W. Tozer said, What comes into your mind when you think about God is the most important thing about you.”  That’s why we’ve been studying what God is like this summer. This Sunday, we looked at God’s omnipresence, which means that God is present everywhere in His creation with His whole being. It’s something I think we know but aren’t really continually aware of. I pray that you will be aware of God’s tangible presence as you go about your week. May it bring you to God, comfort you, and bring you joy.

This coming Sunday, we have the privilege of celebrating new life in Christ through baptisms together. If you have never been baptized since coming to faith in Christ, there is still time to be baptized on Sunday. Baptism is a public proclamation of your faith that not only encourages you but encourages the entire body of Christ. To enhance our celebration, the “Still Smokin” food truck will be serving lunch. It’s going to be a fun time that you don’t want to miss!

Worship will take place outdoors, among God’s beautiful creation, in the Whispering Pines Church upper parking lot. Feel free to bring your own camp chair or if you like you can stay in your car and participate (you can hear the service on 90.9 FM from the parking lot). If you do not feel you can attend or are unwell, the service will also be live-streamed on and Facebook.

Besides Sunday, there are a few fellowship gatherings and Bible studies going on this week. And, more will be getting started soon. I encourage you to join one. They’re a great way to connect deeper with one another and with God. 

For His Glory,
Pastor Eric
