“Renew with Scripture” Luke 24:44-49 Sunday August 21, 2016


(Luke 24:44-49)

44Then Jesus said to them, “These are my words that I spoke to you while I was still with you—that everything written about me in the law of Moses, the prophets, and the psalms must be fulfilled.” 45Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures, 46and he said to them, “Thus it is written, that the Messiah is to suffer and to rise from the dead on the third day, 47and that repentance and forgiveness of sins is to be proclaimed in his name to all nations, beginning from Jerusalem. 48You are witnesses of these things. 49And see, I am sending upon you what my Father promised; so stay here in the city until you have been clothed with power from on high.”

Urgent Monetary Help Needed : Louisiana Flooding relief


https://docgeneralassembly.webconnex.com/weekofcompassion Looking to donate to Louisiana Flooding relief. As the worst flood since Superstorm Sandy forces thousands of residents from their homes in Southern Louisiana, Week of Compassion is offering support. Working with First Christian Church (Disciples of Christ) Baton Rouge, which has several families who have evacuated, we are providing solidarity and immediate relief. Through our partners at Children’s Disaster Services, we are providing safe space for children in the wake of the storm.
