A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians
We believe the main reason the church exists is to learn about Christ so that we can proclaim Him to the world. Therefore, bible study is an essential part of our church.
We are also called to worship Christ with joy and build each other up in fellowship and service. Being apart of the church body is living life in a community that helps each other thrive.
I’d like to share our plan for this COMING Sunday, March 22nd that will carry us through the end of April. We will be gathering online using a video call platform called ZOOM.
9:30 a.m. Bible Study
10:30 a.m. Prayer & Announcements
10:50 a.m. Fellowship
11:00 a.m. Worship
Pete Johnson serves as the Church Planting Pastor for Christ of The Hills Church. Pete grew up in Houston, Texas and married his high school sweetheart, Lori. They have three adult children who live in Oklahoma, Tennessee and Texas. Pete loves to be outdoors in God’s creation, especially riding his motorcycle or snow skiing. He and Lori love to watch movies together as they look for stories of redemption and hope in film. Pete also loves music and just about all forms of art and architecture, as they capture the creative nature of Almighty God.
Pete began his relationship with Christ as a sophomore in high school, while involved in Young Life. He began his ministry career as a volunteer Young Life leader in Lubbock, Texas where he attended college at Texas Tech University. Upon graduation, he then served as an Area Director in Oklahoma and Texas. He served as a Regional Director for Young Life for 18 years while living in Boerne, Texas. After retiring from a 33-year career with Young Life, Pete and Lori felt the Lord calling him to accept the position as our Pastor in October of 2019.
Pete is known to be a gifted communicator, team builder and shepherd of people as they walk more deeply with Christ on their journey of faith.
This week we will be discussing Lesson #11 Daniel 10:1 - 11:35. The meaning of the vision that Daniel has is not described as previous visions but is a straightforward account of the events during the 300 years of the Ptolemaic and Selucid kingdoms that came out of the empire of Alexander the Great. What is of great note is that these events are taking place while spiritual battles are going on. It is clear that the rule of man is under the control of God. No kingdom, no event in history is allowed to happen except by the purposes of God. This should give all believers great comfort. Right now, the world is faced with a new health crisis that has caused not only sickness and death but great fear and economic upheaval. It seems the whole world is shutting down due to this crisis. But as the angel told Daniel as he prepared to explain his vision, " Fear not, peace be with you. Be strong and of good courage!".
Those who belong to Christ can rest easy, He is on the throne!
This week, Pete will continue to bring us God's message from the Gospel of Luke. It is God's message, not Pete's. Please come with hearts and minds prepared to hear what God would have us hear. Come with tongues prepared to worship God with great joy for the salvation He has given us in Christ Jesus!
I look forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit has taught you in this week's lesson.
See you Sunday!
