Elisha’s Double Portion & God-Centered Ambition

New sermon up from 2 Kings 2.

We’re in the midst of a transitional period at the Lake Merced Church of Christ, and just happened to be dealing with Elisha in our sermon series this past week.

Last Sunday I preached the story of Elijah’s passing the torch to Elisha, and the relevance this story has in our lives and in the life of the Lake Merced Church today.

Season of Change at The Lake Merced Church of Christ in San Francisco

Today The Lake Merced Church said our goodbyes to the Crites and the Fletchers.

Paul “Bull” Crites and Paul Fletcher have served on staff for Lake Merced for the past four years … today marked their final Sunday in that role.

The Crites are moving on to Guatemala hoping to plant a church there, and the Fletcher family will be moving to Poteau, OK, where Paul has accepted a youth ministry position for the Poteau Church of Christ.

At the conclusion of Sunday morning worship today, Dick Blythe and Nathaniel Tuliao presented each family with a plaque in recognition of their service, and Paul and Bull each shared a few thoughts with the congregation. View the video here:

Another Baptism at Lake Merced Church Today

Another baptism will take place at The Lake Merced Church of Christ in a little bit – this time a gentlemen who came to us as a visitor this past Sunday and was present for Monica’s baptism. I won’t share his name since I haven’t obtained permission, but I invite you to join with us in celebrating his commitment to Christ!

Good job to Paul Fletcher and Paul Crites in sharing the gospel with this new brother.

A preacher wrote on Twitter the other day, “People are the only commodity that can transition to the new heaven, so invest wisely.”

Wise words indeed. The flurry of baptisms we’ve had in the past couple of weeks serve as proof that God is blessing investments made here in San Francisco!
