Unity is hard and something we have to work for. It’s also worth every minute we strive toward it, a blessing bestowed on us from God when we follow his designed plan,
Today we continue our mini-series in Psalms as Pastor Mark Meals teaches from Psalm 32 “Blessed are the Forgiven”.
Today we continue our mini-series in Psalms with an eye toward thanksgiving in Psalm 100. One of the ways in which the Psalms help us is to remind us of how much we have to praise God for…no matter our current station. Whether we are on top of the mountain or in the darkest valley, we have reason to look up and, with Godward emotion, praise His name! The Psalm of Thanksgiving – Psalm 100 – will remind us of our reasons for praise and call us to worship.

Today we continue our mini-series in Psalms with an eye toward thanksgiving. One of the ways in which the Psalms help us is to remind us of how much we have to praise God for…no matter our current station. Whether we are on top of the mountain or in the darkest valley, we have reason to look up and, with Godward emotion, praise His name! Psalm 98 is one of the more jubilant songs in the Psalter. Please join us in studying it!
It’s amazing that God knows the end of the story. What if he didn’t or our story has an different ending from the one you know. Psalm 124 lets us wrestle with that but brings us to praise that God is on our side.
We in the US are often blind to the risk involved in being followers of Jesus. His Gospel sometimes seems less of a risk thanks to the freedoms we enjoy. However, the Gospel is really has a “risk imperative” agenda for its followers.
We are sometimes asleep to the blessing around us. In the 21st century we have one of the greatest spiritual privileges ever given. Pastor Dustin closes our HBC DNA series talking about our best gift of the Holy Spirit that indwells us. But we need to be mindful of not closing off the fountain of this blessing through our choices.
Please join Pastor Mark Blowers today as he preaches from Titus 2:11-14 The Glory of God’s Grace.
The last message in the DNA series turns the page to how we react and fellowship when church life can get messy and complicated. Grace is not something that we turn off and on or something that we give in to get something in return. We as followers of Christ are instructed to absorb all the cost to forgive when we have been offended.
