Sunday Recap: Pastor Patrick!
On Sunday we had the incredible privilege and joy of ordaining Patrick Chavez as a Pastor. Patrick is a man of incredible character, holiness and humility, who has proven himself as a very able servant of Christ and steward of the mysteries of God (1 Cor. 4:1). He, his wife and his family, have served our Church in innumerable ways and we are so grateful for them. Please continue to pray for Patrick and his family, that God would use him all the more, and that God would protect them from the evil one! Please also pray that God would send us more ‘Patrick’s’ so that we can have more shepherds to keep watch over our souls!
Dave preached from Hebrews 13:17 and spoke of how in the great race of following Jesus, God has given us pastors to help us make it to the end! Pastors are called to: lead, nourish, equip, protect and serve the Church. As members we are called to follow our Pastors with faith and openness. The message will be on podcast later this week, check it out!
“Remember your leaders, those who spoke to you the word of God. Consider the outcome of their way of life, and imitate their faith… Obey your leaders and submit to them, for they are keeping watch over your souls, as those who will have to give an account. Let them do this with joy and not with groaning, for that would be of no advantage to you.” Hebrews 13:7, 17
