Apostle Paul knew something about fresh starts. He was an angry man spiraling out of control when Jesus stopped him in his tracks on the road to Damascus. As an old man Paul reflects on his pre-Christ days as “violent”; he was a man driven by his self-righteous insolence. But there, in Acts 9, for future generations to read—the light of Jesus blinded Saul. The irony, of course, was that for the first time in his life Saul began to see. The rest is redemptive history. By God’s grace, Saul became Paul, a murderer became a missionary, and a very angry heart turned into a heart of Love.
Our New Year’s Eve and New Year Sunday service has one aim: to recapture the fresh start Jesus gives us in our lives. We believe that spending time in reflection, repentance, and renewal is the most fulfilling way to usher in the new year. The format is simple for both services: we’ll sing, pray, hear the Word preached, and take communion (on New Year’s Eve). Also, for those of you who would like to spend extra time in prayer, we’ll provide an open prayer time on Saturday night.
