It is our joy having Phil Dufrin fill the pulpit today. Phil is no stranger to HBC. He is the co-pastor of Covenant Life Community Church in East Lansing – the church we partner with each Good Friday. Phil’s nephew, Ian Dufrin will lead us in worship as well. Ian’s father, Norm is the other pastor at CLCC. Please greet them and express your appreciation for their ministry here this morning.
Are you weary? Next Sunday, dv, I plan on preaching on Matt 11:28-30. Jesus tells those of us who are weary and burdened to come to him. It is only in Christ we will find rest for our souls. On Sept 6, I want to preach a message from Eph 4:32, especially as it relates to our loved ones. We are to be kind and compassionate, forgiving of others. Our plan is to start a new series through the book of Hebrews this fall.
Sue and I wrap up our vacation plans tomorrow. We ever so thankful for the church giving us time to get away. Please pray for us. We’ve had great times alone together and with some of our children, grandchildren, along with dear friends.
