Greetings Oregon Conference Family!
What a blessing it is to be able to share the journey as fellow followers of Jesus as Seventh-day Adventist Christians, anticipating Jesus’ return.
The writer book of Hebrews to the first century believers, exhorted them with the following message:
“Let us hold fast the confession of our hope without wavering, for He who promised is faithful. And let us consider one another in order to stir up love and good works, not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as is the manner of some, but exhorting one another, and so much the more as you see the Day approaching.” Hebrews 10:23-25, NKJV.
We are encouraged to keep “assembling together!” Of all the challenges we experienced with the pandemic, one of the most difficult was not “assembling together.”
What a joy to be able to fully do this again! To spend time together in worship, contemplating a spiritual message, and sharing and praying.
This is what our upcoming Together In Mission Sabbaths are all about! Sabbath morning as many of our Conference headquarters team as possible will fan out to the churches in a geographic region to worship with those church families and share a message in the main worship service. Then we invite as many as possible to gather for a special Sabbath afternoon convocation vespers service to enjoy each other’s fellowship in Christ to move forward Together In Mission!
Our team is excited to serve as many churches as possible on these special Sabbaths. And we look forward to many more joining us on that Sabbath afternoon.
I believe God’s heart is for his people to be “In Community” together in mission! This is the context in which he will pour out his Spirit of revival and bring vibrant vitality to his churches.
See you soon!
Blessings in Him,
