A Note From the Pastor, William A. Lewis
We Welcome You!
Spiritual Preparation
We would like to welcome all of our guests to Community Presbyterian Church.
We hope that the Spirit and love of the Lord fill you today as you worship with us.
We would love to connect with you one-on-one, to learn more about you, and to
allow you to learn more about our church and congregation. If you are a first time
guest please join us after the service at the Welcome Cart so that we may get to
know you better and offer you a welcome gift.
There is no substitute for spiritual preparation. Spiritual preparation
equips you for unforeseen crises or opportunities. However, if you are
unprepared you will be vulnerable in life's unexpected events.
If you are spiritually prepared when a crisis comes, you will not have to try
to develop instantly the quality of relationship with Christ that can sustain
you. If you suddenly have an opportunity to share your faith with an
unbeliever, you will be equipped to do so. If you enter a time of worship
Spiritually prepared, you will not miss an encounter with God. If you are
spiritually filled when you meet a person in sorrow, you will have much to
offer. If you have established safeguards in your life in advance, you will
not give in to temptation. Christians lose many opportunities to
experience God’s activity because they have not devoted enough time to
their relationship with God. If you have not yet developed the habit of
daily prayer and Bible study, why not begin now, so that you will be
equipped for whatever life brings?
