Looking Ahead

Dear family and friends of First Pres Fort Lauderdale!
Grace and peace to you my friends! My family and I would like to express our deep appreciation for your warm welcome on my Installation day, and for all you did for a wonderful service and reception. As my daughter said, “Mom they really go all out!” Thank you!
This week, I will be picking up in Luke’s Gospel where Pastor Patrick left off. Our scripture passage is neatly tucked in between the Parable of the Good Samaritan and Jesus’ teaching on prayer. We find ourselves at the home of Martha and Mary, a familiar story, and one that we have heard over the years. At first glance, we are reading about a sisters’ spat, not unlike some of our family dynamics! Where do we find ourselves in this narrative and how does Jesus respond? Perhaps we can discover something new in the text as we read and grapple with this very familiar narrative in Luke 10:38-42.
This Sunday, I am very excited to introduce new members and I invite you to personally welcome each one of our brothers and sisters into the family! If you or someone you know would like to join our church family, Patrick will be hosting the next Membership Connection on Sunday, July 28, 2019, at 9:30 a.m. in Room 200 of the Neumann Center. Please stop by, and get some coffee and goodies on the first floor, and then come on up and enjoy a time of fellowship and getting to know more about our wonderful church!
Grace and peace,
