Scripture Reading Philippians 3:7–14 (ESV) Connie Giere

But whatever gain I had, I counted as loss for the sake of Christ.

Indeed, I count everything as loss
    because of the surpassing worth of knowing Christ Jesus my Lord.

For his sake I have suffered the loss of all things and count them as rubbish, in order that I may gain Christ and be found in him, not having a righteousness of my own that comes from the law, but that which comes through faith in Christ, the righteousness from God that depends on faith –

that I may know him and the power of his resurrection,
    and may share his sufferings, becoming like him in his death,
that by any means possible
    I may attain the resurrection from the dead.

Not that I have already obtained this or am already perfect, but I press on to make it my own, because Christ Jesus has made me his own. Brothers, I do not consider that
I have made it my own. But one thing I do: forgetting what lies behind and straining forward to what lies ahead, I press on toward the goal for the prize of the upward call of God in Christ Jesus.

Philippians 4:10–20 ESV

God's Provision

10 I rejoiced in the Lord greatly that now at length you have revived your concern for me. You were indeed concerned for me, but you had no opportunity. 11 Not that I am speaking of being in need, for I have learned in whatever situation I am to be content. 12 I know how to be brought low, and I know how to abound. In any and every circumstance, I have learned the secret of facing plenty and hunger, abundance and need. 13 I can do all things through him who strengthens me.

14 Yet it was kind of you to share[c] my trouble. 15 And you Philippians yourselves know that in the beginning of the gospel, when I left Macedonia, no church entered into partnership with me in giving and receiving, except you only. 16 Even in Thessalonica you sent me help for my needs once and again. 17 Not that I seek the gift, but I seek the fruit that increases to your credit.[d] 18 I have received full payment, and more. I am well supplied, having received from Epaphroditus the gifts you sent, a fragrant offering, a sacrifice acceptable and pleasing to God. 19 And my God will supply every need of yours according to his riches in glory in Christ Jesus. 20 To our God and Father be glory forever and ever. Amen.

Come You Sinners

Come You Sinners

Author: J. Hart (1759)

1 Come ye sinners, poor and needy,
Weak and wounded, sick and sore;
Jesus ready stands to save you,
Full of pity, love, and pow'r.


I will arise and go to Jesus,
He will embrace me in His arms;
In the arms of my dear Savior,
O there are ten thousand charms.

2 Come, ye thirsty, come and welcome,
God's free bounty glorify;
True belief and true repentance,
Ev'ry grace that brings you nigh.


3 Come ye weary, heavy laden,
Lost and ruined by the fall;
If you tarry till you're better,
You will never come at all.


4 Let not conscience make you linger,
Nor of fitness fondly dream;
All the fitness He requireth
Is to feel your need of Him.

Pastor To People

March 08, 2015

Each year around this time, sometimes earlier, my wife asks me if there aren’t any churches in Florida or southern California where I could serve as a pastor. Of course, we love The Moody Church and would absolutely hate to leave, but if a church in a much warmer climate extended a call to serve there, I would do my best to say good-bye to all of you personally.

I can say that light-heartedly because while I confess that predicting what the Lord has in store for any of us is difficult at best, we consider ourselves so blessed to be a part of The Moody Church family that it would take far more than the lure of pleasant weather to draw us away from here.

I hope that is how you feel about our church too. For those of you who attend regularly but are not really connected to us yet, I pray that you’ll take the next step of trying out one of our TMC Communities so you can make some new friends and find opportunities to serve and grow in your relationship with the Lord. The Lord has brought you here for a reason and we would love to help you realize that in your life.

For His glory,
Bill Bertsche
Executive Pastor
