WE GATHER

Hey there Flatwoods family,
 
I pray your week has been filled with the realization that God is in charge no matter the circumstance.  Not only is He in charge, but he is a good Father!  His love is a firm foundation and we can put our trust in Him knowing that he will never be shaken.
 
Last Sunday was so good!  I am thankful for our worship team and Justin Cook who leads our church each week to make high the name of Jesus.  Our worship gatherings are a weekly reminder of who God is, what he has done, and what he has called us to.
 
Continuing in our series WE ARE FLATWOODS, we tackled almost two topics in one sermon.  First, we looked at who we are as Flatwoods.  It is my desire for us to have a statement we can hang our hat on, and live by.  
 
Here is that statement…
 
 
I truly believe Stone County needs Jesus more than any other need.  I truly believe Jesus is the answer to life transformation, and his story reshapes our story.  Pray with me that Stone County will be transformed by Jesus as we gather and scattered for His name and His glory.
 
We then tackled our first essential element, We Gather.  It is my prayer that we will continue to be a really good gathered church.  That means when we gather we must always be Christ-centered.  As Colossians 3:17 makes clear, “And whatever you do, in word or did, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.”  We are for His name, His glory, and His renown.   
 
May God be gracious to us and bless us, and cause His face to shine on us, that your way may be known on earth, your salvation among that nations!
 
Grace be with you,
 
Jonathan Johnson
