Your REFUGE Weekly 6-24: Altar’d States

We’re getting closer to a celebration of Independence Day, when our United States of America were forever altered. We’re also getting closer and closer to our “new normal” as pandemic precautions fade as we move and live and breathe in the world around us, seeing alterations day by day in stores and public areas and our own routines.

As Christians, we live in a “new normal” as God’s people, and things have indeed altered… or “altar’d”. Indeed, many of us don’t think of altars, or if we do it’s as some primitive or pagan religious concept. And while God’s unfolding plan has us in an altered relational state – from exactly how Moses and Israel related thousands of years ago – the altar is still incredibly important to understand now. So this Sunday we’ll be looking with respect at the Bronze Altar in Exodus 27:1-8 and understanding it’s context and foreshadowing.

This weekend ALSO alters a bunch of our routines as our FIREWORKS FUNDRAISER kicks into high gear! While it’s not on site at Refuge – but a few minutes up the road – remember to pray and participate as able! At least SHARE on FACEBOOK or other media and encourage others to support our ministry AND get their Fourth-of-July fun!

We’re ALSO going to encourage donations to The Nourishing Network as part of Independence Day weekend… which means those who bring donations to the booth will get a special discount/gift! But we’re also going to ask Refuge Members to bring donations Sunday the 4th so we can show our love to the community around us in very practical ways. Remember, these should be single-serving (and preferably nutritious) items for kids! Check out the Nourishing Network and some donation ideas HERE.

Last but not least, the state of our music worship will be ALTERED this Sunday too! Remember the Vance family who provided us with some “virtual worship” from their home during the pandemic? They’ll be LIVE – in PERSON – leading worship this Sunday at Refuge! We will also have a very special testimony to share… about a life that was altered forever by the gospel. Can’t wait to see them – and YOU! – at service this Sunday.

Grace and peace,
James Harleman
Pastor, Refuge Church
