Oh Give Thanks to the LORD

Oh give thanks to the LORD, for he is good,
for his steadfast love endures forever!
He made the storm be still,
and the waves of the sea were hushed.
Then they were glad that the waters were quiet,
and he brought them to their desired haven.
Let them thank the LORD for his steadfast love,
for his wondrous works to the children of man!
Let them extol him in the congregation of the people,
and praise him in the assembly of the elders.
— Psalm 107:1;29-32 (ESV)

Dear Cross Creek,

As difficult as this hurricane week has been, it has also been a joy to see and experience the family of God being a family together. Before, during, and after the storm, you've prayed for one another, checked in on each other, and helped one another with practical needs. My prayer is that God would continue to nurture us as A Church For St Johns, moving toward each other and our neighbors with the love of Jesus Christ in both word and deed.

We are back on for Worship Service, Classes, and Bible Studies. The Women's Bible Study starts this week, with three weekly sessions to choose from: Sunday at 9:30am (mini version, starting 9/17), and Tuesdays at 9:30am and 7pm (starting 9/19). Childcare is available for morning sessions. The GOSPEL LOVE study will help you examine your relationships and learn how the gospel of Jesus Christ frees you to love others. Topics covered include barriers to loving others, how love is an expression of faith, the role of the Spirit in relationships, honesty vs. judging, and how to live with forgiveness and compassion.

Grace and peace,

Keith Snow
