A MESSAGE FROM THE PASTOR OF COMMUNICATIONS

 

Psalm 37:28 says “For the LORD loves the just and will not forsake his faithful ones. They will be protected forever…” God is committed to his people. He loves justice, and those who pursue it. He will not forget his people, those who seek to honor him by displaying his character in their lives. God has promised that he will honor his promises to his people and preserve them with his protecting power, forever. As God has promised elsewhere, “Never will I leave you, never will I forsake you!”

                                                                            – Pastor Campos

THIS SABBATH

NEW SERMON SERIES – Join us each Sabbath in July for a new series on the book of Colossians. Think you know all about this book of the Bible? You may be surprised what you learn and the lessons it contains for today. Next Sabbath, July 8, Pastor Travis Sager continues with the book of Colossians with Colossians – The Mystery Revealed.

WORSHIP HOUR – Paul often begins his letters with a greeting. The greeting often encourages the listeners with what they are doing well and admonishes them in areas they are lacking. What would paul say if he were to write a letter to the Church of Hinsdale?
