Hey church family! Here’s what you need to know for this week at Sound City.
CELEBRATING | KINGDOM MINDEDNESS
If you’ve been around a while, you know we greatly value building gospel partnerships with other like-minded churches, pastors, and organizations. Looking beyond ourselves to the Kingdom work that’s happening all around us, and partnering with others in it, helps us focus on Jesus’ broader Great Commission, and that’s something worth celebrating. This past Sunday, Pastor Aaron was up at Foundation Church, sharing God’s Word with our brothers and sisters in Everett. Additionally, right now as you read this, Pastor Doug and Linda Freyberg and Deacons Kyle & Brittany Hackett, are leading a team in Mexico to serve and minister there, in the name of Christ, to those in need. Join us in prayer and thanksgiving this week for each of these opportunities to raise our gaze and participate in the many Kingdom opportunities he’s blessed us with—for God’s glory and for our joy.
THIS WEEK AT SOUND CITY BIBLE CHURCH
THIS SUNDAY’S SERMON | JOHN 6:16–25 | JESUS WALKS ON WATER
In verses 6:16–25, John keeps the narrative moving briskly forward from Jesus’ fourth sign into his fifth: walking on water. While Jesus’ other signs have been public, this sign is more private in nature, only being witnessed by Jesus’ disciples. In this sign, Jesus powerfully demonstrates his divinity and meets his followers in their loneliness and fear. Join us as we explore this passage and how God meets us with his divine power in our loneliness and fear.
COMING SOON | MARK YOUR CALENDARS
MARCH 4 | GUEST PREACHER, STEVE PATTON
On Sunday, March 4, we are excited to welcome guest preacher, Steve Patton. Steve is the preaching and discipleship pastor for Reunion Seattle, a brand-new church plant in the south end of Seattle. Steve will be jumping in on our series in the gospel of John with a teaching from John 6:41–59. We are looking forward to learning from him, so mark your calendars and join us!
MARCH 11 | INTERESTED IN MEMBERSHIP?
God calls his people to be intentionally committed to a local body of fellow Christ followers, for God's glory and their good.
