Mission of Emmanuel Reformed Church (7/27/14)

Part of our disapointment with God comes from a mis-understanding of what God is up to in this world.  Pastor Dirk examines a time when Jesus disappointed both the crowds and his new disciples - because they were expecting the wrong things.  

The work and mission of Emmanuel Reformed Church should be lined up with what God is doing in the world, and helping people participate in eternal life starting now.  Clarity about what God wants and the strength to see it through is a gift of prayer.  Prayer and purpose are tied together - listen to learn how.

Mark 1:38 And [Jesus] said to them, “Let us go on to the neighboring towns, that I may preach there also, for that is why I came.”
