HGC Weekly Update - May 19th

Logo.jpeg

This Sunday. . . 
The purpose of the church is to bring glory to the Father.  How do we accomplish this?  By the church being what the Father intends the church to be.  We do this by being Gospel Defined through the Word, a people called out by a message of grace and redemption.  We also do it by being Gospel Driven, a family who actually gives what it has received from Christ, to one another.  Join us on Sunday, as we take a closer look at what it looks like to be a family that is moved by the Gospel, to be the Gospel for one another.

This Sunday. . . 
Last Sunday, we talked about the church being Gospel Defined, Driven, and Declaring.  Where do we get that from?  Where does the Gospel that we are defined by, come from?  This Sunday, we talk about God's Word.  My hope is that this weekend, our love for Scripture is strengthened. That our passion for the Word is intensified.  God has preserved and protected HIS Word for us.

Text: 1 Peter 2:9-12

What is the Church?  Why does it exist?  What is its purpose?  What about HGC?  Do we have a point, or is it just something we do?  The church, we are told in the Bible, was purchased by the precious blood of Jesus, and is the bride of Christ.  Those sound like pretty important descriptions, and are worth our consideration.  Join us Sunday, as we look at what the Bible has to say about our purpose as a church, and even more so as a local church called Highland Gospel Community.

Mark 16:1-8

Why is Easter Sunday so important?  Paul said if it isn’t true that Christ raised from the dead, then all our preaching is worthless and so is our faith. Thankfully, one silent observer on that first Easter Sunday tells a very important message for all who come to Christ.  The stone that covered the tomb of Jesus Christ is not actually silent, but testifies to all who will listen about the reality of His resurrection.  Join us Sunday as we celebrate our risen Savior!

Financial Support Opportunity

 This Sunday. . . 

Why have an extended Worship and Prayer service?  Because we need to remember that we don’t go to church for ourselves to see what we get out of it, but we go in order to worship and call out to the one who is only worthy of our praise.  We come together, so that together we can worship Him who is the reason for the Church.  Join us on Sunday as we spend our morning with extended worship and prayer.
