El Poder de la Fe (The Power of Faith)

This coming Sunday is Children’s Sunday at Reedwood. One of our young people, Javier Milian, will be sharing with Pastor of Latino Ministries, Mario Macias about the power of faith (El Poder de la Fe). They are sharing from Matthew 21:18-22:

In the morning, when he returned to the city, he was hungry. And seeing a fig tree by the side of the road, he went to it and found nothing at all on it but leaves. Then he said to it, ‘May no fruit ever come from you again!’ And the fig tree withered at once. When the disciples saw it, they were amazed, saying, ‘How did the fig tree wither at once?’ Jesus answered them, ‘Truly I tell you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do what has been done to the fig tree, but even if you say to this mountain, “Be lifted up and thrown into the sea”, it will be done. Whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive.’

The following queries are offered to help prepare your heart and mind for worship:

How do you receive Jesus’ claim that “whatever you ask for in prayer with faith, you will receive”?

How is God calling on you to have faith or to be faithful?

The worship songs at the outset of the gathering will be I Love To Be In Your Presence, You Are a Holy God, and Holy Spirit, We Are Open.

We will gather at 9:30 am at 2901 SE Steele. We hope to see you there!
