Hebron Happenings This Week!

Amy Morrow, Missionary to Zambia will be sharing with us in both morning worship services this Sunday, April 14th. Tom and Amy Morrow founded and operate the Kazembe Orphanage and will be providing some exciting updates about their ministry. A mission's love offering will be received at the conclusion of both services.

Essentials for Shepherding
"And David shepherded them with integrity of heart; with skillful hands he led them." Psalm 78:72

This single verse sheds light on two essentials to effective shepherding: Character and Competence. Throughout Scripture, God places a significant emphasis on the character of leaders. Effective leaders must be people of integrity. If a person fails to be a person of character, they will lose the trust of the people they are leading and their ability to shepherd will be greatly diminished. Aside from character (the core essential to shepherding), shepherds must lead competently, "with skillful hands." The Bible says that David not only was a man of integrity, but he led the people with skill, he knew what to do and how to do it. Competency in shepherding means knowing "what" to do, but also knowing the "how" and "when" of doing. Shepherds who lead with character and competence are greatly needed today.

Second Sunday of Easter, April 7, 2013

It's still Easter! 
Easter Sunday is the beginning of the season, not the end. The focus of this season is Christian formation through teaching Christian doctrine and preparing God's people to minister in the power of the Holy Spirit. The focus of our Scripture readings today is that Jesus is Lord, we are called to make Him known, and we are a kingdom of priests who serve in Christ's name. As we carry out the Lord's mission, we do so in confidence knowing that Christ is coming. 

See You Sunday!
For His Glory
Pastor Joe

Acts 5:27-32, NIV
27 The apostles were brought in and made to appear before the Sanhedrin to be questioned by the high priest.
28 “We gave you strict orders not to teach in this name,” he said. “Yet you have filled Jerusalem with your teaching and are determined to make us guilty of this man’s blood.”
29 Peter and the other apostles replied: “We must obey God rather than human beings!
30 The God of our ancestors raised Jesus from the dead—whom you killed by hanging him on a cross.
31 God exalted him to his own right hand as Prince and Savior that he might bring Israel to repentance and forgive their sins. 32 We are witnesses of these things, and so is the Holy Spirit, whom God has given to those who obey him.”

Revelation 1:4-8, NIV
4 John, To the seven churches in the province of Asia: Grace and peace to you from him who is, and who was, and who is to come, and from the seven spirits before his throne,
5 and from Jesus Christ, who is the faithful witness, the firstborn from the dead, and the ruler of the kings of the earth. To him who loves us and has freed us from our sins by his blood,
6 and has made us to be a kingdom and priests to serve his God and Father—to him be glory and power for ever and ever! Amen.
7 “Look, he is coming with the clouds,” and “every eye will see him, even those who pierced him”; and all peoples on earth “will mourn because of him.” So shall it be! Amen.
8 “I am the Alpha and the Omega,” says the Lord God, “who is, and who was, and who is to come, the Almighty.”
