This Week's Message
This Sunday, we continue our series in the book of Matthew. This eight-week sermon series looks at the first half of the Gospel of Matthew. We will examine the broader themes in Matthew like God’s character, Jesus as the fulfillment of the Old Testament’s promises for a Messiah, and the importance of internal integrity over external behavior. Matthew is laser focused on Jesus being the fulfillment of all the prophecies of the Old Testament.
SonLight will host a baptism service at Lake James Christian Assembly on August 5th immediately after the Sunday morning service. Following the baptisms, we will have a potluck & swimming at Lake James. Everyone is welcome! If you desire to be baptized, contact Sheila by calling the office or email Sheila@SonLightCommunity.com
The American Red Cross will hold the next blood drive at SonLight on July 25th, 11 am - 5 pm. They are offering a free ticket to a Cedar Fair theme park of your choice (see posters for more information), while supplies last. To schedule your blood donation appointment, call 1-800-RED CROSS or go to redcrossblood.org, sponsor code “sonlightcc”.
RightNowMedia - Study of the Month
What we think about Jesus matters. Our perception of Him shapes us—what we say, how we treat others, even what we think. If we paint Jesus as any less than who He is as supreme over all creation and savior of the world, not only does our theology slip, but the working out of our faith also suffers. In this 8-session series, Louie Giglio will take us through the book of Colossians to help us form a complete picture of Jesus. To sign up, please fill out a Connection Card with your email printed clearly, email firstname.lastname@example.org, or visit https://www.RightNowMedia.org/Account/Invite/SonlightCommunity
