01-07-18 @NHCC: "A New Kind of Resolution"

Good chilly afternoon friends and family of NHCC!

This Sunday we'll begin part II of our This Is Jesus mega-series. I'm calling this mini-series Dawn of a New Day because of the fact that when Jesus walked the hills of first-century Palestine He went about proclaiming that everything was about to change. Over the next four weeks, we'll discover what He meant and how it can change everything for us today. 

I have to say that I'm pretty fired up about this series. It's going to be a great one!

In this Sunday's message - "A New Kind of Resolution" - we'll look at Jesus' bold announcement at the beginning of His ministry plus we'll discover a very specific invitation, promise and challenge He offered (and still offers). If you're hoping for a different and better 2018, you don’t want to miss this!

As an added benefit, associate pastor Shannon Horn has asked me to let everyone know that we'll be providing special breakfast treats before each service from now through the 4th of February. You might want to get here a bit ealier for that!

Speaking of February 4th, you're probably aware that it's Superbowl Sunday. Over the past several years we've taken advantage of this major cultural event to feature in our services (via video) the stories of well-known NFL players who are followers of Jesus. I'm pleased to announce that we're going to do it again this year, so go ahead and mark Football Sunday on your calendar. And here's hoping our Chiefs get to be part of that big day!

That's all for now. Stay warm and see you Sunday!

Rick
