Sermon Help Wanted

Pastor Lou Needs Your Help Planning Sermons:

As I prepare my next sermon series, Running The Race Of Faith, I want to ask you for your help. Can you please email me with the answer these 2 questions at pastorlou@churchinbrielle.org or text me at 845-591-2016?

Please take time to think and try to really be honest and go as deep as you can. I will incorporate your responses in my sermons. If you want to remain anonymous, just mail your replies to the church anonymously!

  1. When it comes to your faith and living as you really want to, what trips you up?
  2. When it comes to your faith and living as you really want to, what makes you succeed?

Ongoing:  WHERE DO YOU SEE GOD’S HAND BRINGING GOOD OUT OF THE BAD?

Send in your replies to pastorlou@churchinbrielle.org and we will write them on stickies and stick them on the cross in the sanctuary. The cross, which represents redemption and new life from despair and death, will represent you with your replies.
