Friends Day
By: Patrick Barber
Welcome to East Point! We're grateful to God that we've been able to come together today for a time of worship, encouragement, and connection. If you're new here and have any questions or needs, please let us know. Some of our leaders are pictured inside this bulletin, and any of them would love to meet you and assist in any way they can. As we share this time together today, let's pray that God will give us peace, assurance, and joy. We all have struggles and sin, but God has made his strength and forgiveness available to us through Jesus his son. His love is real, and he offers it to every single one of us.  There is no better news than that.

    "Rich???"
    By: Richard James
    Scripture: 1 Timothy 6:17-19
    Ever stood in front of a closet full of clothes trying to find something to wear? Ever traded a perfectly good car in for another. . . .car? Ever killed some time talking on your cell phone while standing in line to get a newer version of the same phone? Ever go shopping just to relax? If you answered yes to any of those questions, you might be rich. No you probably don’t feel rich. Rich is the other guy. Rich is having more than you currently have. But you can be rich and not feel it. And that’s the problem. We are all richer than we think. And the problem we aren’t all that good at being rich. – Andy Stanley, How to Be Rich, Zondervan Publishers 2013

    8Above all, keep loving one another earnestly, since love covers a multitude of sins. 9Show hospitality to one another without grumbling. 10As each has received a gift, use it to serve one another, as good stewards of God's varied grace: 11whoever speaks, as one who speaks oracles of God; whoever serves, as one who serves by the strength that God supplies—in order that in everything God may be glorified through Jesus Christ. To him belong glory and dominion forever and ever. Amen. 1 Peter 4:8-11

    Alone in a crowd ... image was intentionally softened and colors muted to all but the alone person.
    "Abandoned But Not Alone"
    By: John Langley
    Scripture: Matthew 11:28-30
    Kind of a funny thing to say! Really! We have more ways to connect with other humans than ever before. We have: Facebook, Twitter, FireChat, Linkedin, eHarmony, smart phones, computers, and YMCA’s. With all these avenues of interaction, I believe, less and less meaningful contact is being made. The avenues of communication have multiplied, but we find it more difficult to truly connect. If you are ever in a crowd and feel alone, or if you feel you just don’t have a good friend to sit and visit with, maybe our multi-connected society has failed you. Consider Jesus’ words this morning as we worship together. 28“Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. 29Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30For my yoke is easy and my burden is light.” Matthew 11:28-30

    "Covenant"
    By: Patrick Barber
    Welcome to East Point this morning! Meeting together to encourage each other and worship the Lord is the best way to begin the week. We know that God expects his family to come together like this, and he means for it to be something we look forward to doing every Sunday. Today is special in that we are focusing specifically on the Lord's Supper. We often call this Communion. Some, the breaking of bread. Still others call it the Eucharist--which simply means giving thanks. No matter what we call it, it is a sacred time that we share together. As we worship and commune this morning, let's remember all that God and his Christ has done for us. If we think of these things, our praise will be loud, our hearts will be touched, and we will leave this place closer to God than when we arrived. And then, with God's grace, we'll live in ways that show the world around us that Jesus, indeed, is alive.

    "God Don't Shoot Craps"
    By: Patrick Barber
    Scripture: Psalm 146
    Today is the final Sunday of our short four-week series on selected parables of Jesus. Since it is the "end" of this series, it makes sense for us to talk today about what Jesus said about "The End." I'll do that during the sermon time. In case you've missed any of the last few weeks, here is a snapshot of what we've talked about during this series so far: (Matthew 21:33-46, The Parable of the Tenants) If we're not focused on the mission of the Kingdom that God gave us, we can lose our place and role in it. (Matthew 13:1-23, The Parable of the Sower) Many things can harden our hearts and cause us to be unproductive in the Kingdom of God, but if our hearts are pure God will make us fruitful. (Matthew 13:44-46, Two Parables of the Kingdom) If we believe in Jesus, then we must believe what he says, and he says that finding our way into the Kingdom is more valuable than everything else we can possibly have. If you want to hear about these in more depth, you can find these and our other sermons online at www.epcofc.org.
