Pastor Rich Bout, the Missions Coordinator for the URCNA, preached from 1 Thessalonians 1 on June 09, 2019. A key point from the sermon was that joy comes to Christians when they love Jesus, love the Gospel, and love others (and want to share the Gospel with them). This zeal for the Gospel will be recognized in us by the world in tangible ways when we employ hospitality.
The Heidelberg Catechism Lord’s Day 13 was read for the Confessional Reading.
There was a fellowship meal open to all after the service at one of the family’s homes.
