Ministry

An invitation

I wanted to take a moment and send you my invitation to join Brenda and I this Sunday morning @ 10:00 am.

My friend Bob Kilpatrick will be my guest speaker and singer this Sunday morning.

Here is a brief bit of info. on Bob’s Bio.

Bob Kilpatrick speaks at churches and conferences around the world. His first book, Secrets of the Silence, was released summer, ’09, and his first hardback book, The Art of Being You, was published by Zondervan in December, 2010.

Musicians from Phil Keaggy to Sara Groves have benefited from Bob’s skills in the studio. Still, most people were introduced to Bob’s ministry through his worship songs.

At least two of Bob Kilpatrick’s songs are consistently listed in the “Classic” worship song category- “Lord Be Glorified” and “Here Am I (Send Me To The Nations)”. His song “Bring Them Home” was sung at Mother Teresa’s funeral service in Calcutta, India (Hillary Clinton mentioned to the singer how touched she was by the song!)

A  safe, clean, fun children’s church and nursery will be provided during the adult service.

If I were going to invite you to my church this would be the weekend.

Hope to see you this Sunday.

Books I'm Reading

Artistically minded?

Just picked up Bob and Joel Kilpatrick’s newest book The Art Of Being You.

The Art of Being You, it’s the author’s thesis that most Christ-followers take a “math” approach to their faith journey making it manageable with a system of “do’s and don’ts.” Somewhere along history’s timeline, they began to expect the Bible to be more like a textbook/rulebook than an expression of the art and mystery of God . . . living their lives accordingly. We often reason rather than point to the mystery. God is not a mathematician, mechanic, teacher or the Wizard of Oz although we often perceive Him in that way.

The Art of Being You is a transparent glimpse into God’s creative plans and work in our lives. This new paradigm is simple enough yet too large to fully understand and get our arms wrapped around. God is not taking a band-aid approach to fixing us but rather a passionate, visionary artist’s continual effort to express His creativity in each one of us. God considers humankind his masterpiece.

The Kilpatricks clearly explain the difference between “math” and “art” when it comes to our perceptions concerning God. Here are some of the phrases clarified within the pages . . . Math equates while Art creates; Evangelism is Math — Friendship is Art; Generosity is Art and Tithing is Math and last but not least, Fear is Math while Love is Art.

Bob Will be with us @ Prescott First Assembly Sunday morning November 6th @ 10:00 A.M.

Just a side note – One of Bob’s songs was sung at Mother Teresa’s funeral.

Hope you are able to join us for an amazing day November 6th.

FEAR FACTOIDS:

Each sunrise seems to bring fresh reasons for fear.

The brave new world we live in today has given us layoffs at work, slowdowns in the economy, flare-ups in the Middle East, turnovers at headquarters, downturns in the housing market, upswings in global warming. The plague of our day, terrorism, begins with the word terror. Fear, it seems, has taken up permanent residency in the neighborhood where we all live.

In this two part series we will be looking at the two FEAR FACTOIDS that derail our destiny the most.

Fear of failure and fear of people.

See you Sunday @ PFA Prescott – 10:00 am

1 out of 167

There are168 hours in a week. We gather for one, but we live in the 167. Church can easily become defined as a one hour weekly experience. A religious obligation to check off our to-do list, or a once-a-week spiritual meal to sustain us until next Sunday. We believe there’s more. Much more. And we’re committed to discovering what it means to be followers of Jesus Christ in the 167 of this life.

See you this Sunday.

We are still meeting at the 1455 willowcreek road location

10:00 am Sunday
