Our New Women's Ministry Leader

On Sunday we announced in our service that the pastoral team has appointed our first Women’s Ministry Leader: Kirsi Turbedsky. Kirsi will lead our efforts to equip and disciple the women of our church.

Why do we need a women’s ministry leader?

Our pastoral team is exclusively male. We believe this is good. We believe this is biblical. We believe this is what God has established. However, one of the ways male pastors lead best is by improving the channels of communication between themselves and, in this case, the women of the church.

Our Women’s Ministry Leader provides an influential female voice to the pastors so that they can more effectively serve and lead the women of Sovereign Grace Church. She's not a quasi-pastor, but a servant. She’s a point of contact for the women and she takes a leadership role in our women’s ministry efforts (e.g. Women’s Study, Women’s Retreats).

Three cheers for Kirsi

Kirsi leads a full life and already serves the church in many ways. She’s making even more sacrifices taking on this role. We are grateful to God for her ministry among us. Pray for her, thank her, and encourage her.

5 Days Left To Complete March's Bible Memorization Challenge

March’s Verse: Psalm 97:1-6 (ESV)

1 The Lord reigns, let the earth rejoice;
    let the many coastlands be glad!
Clouds and thick darkness are all around him;
    righteousness and justice are the foundation of his throne.
Fire goes before him
    and burns up his adversaries all around.
His lightnings light up the world;
    the earth sees and trembles.
The mountains melt like wax before the Lord,
    before the Lord of all the earth.
The heavens proclaim his righteousness,
    and all the peoples see his glory.

When The Universe Began To Unravel

The Beginning Of All Our Troubles

On Sunday Pastor Eric preached from Genesis 3:1-7, the fall of mankind. He reminded us that every sin begins with a question about God, every sin is an act of rebellion, and every sin ends in disgrace. The good news is that God has responded to our rebellion with grace.

Listen to the sermon.
