2020 Preview

2020 is quickly approaching and I want to update you on our plan to engage in spiritual practices for the new year. We will not be doing a churchwide 21 day fast this year.  Instead, we will focus on developing spiritual habits that will last much longer than 21 days.
 
Spiritual practices such as reading Scripture and praying are important—not because they prove how spiritual we are—but because God can use them to lead us into life. ?
~ John Ortberg, The Life You've Always Wanted.  
 
On January 6, we will begin the spiritual practice of reading the Bible using the S.O.A.P. method.  We will spend the year journey through the Bible using the following reading plan Biblical Storyline Reading Plan (365 Days).  Each day we will read God’s Word and use the S.O.A.P. method to reflect upon the Word.  The daily devotion emails will be based on this reading.  Information about the method is available on our church app under resources and here is a link to the website http://spbaptist.org/soap.
 
Sermon Series
On January 5, we will begin a 4-week sermon series entitled Habits: small things that make a big difference.  Plan to join us Sundays, January 5 - 26th  at 10 a.m. as we begin our first sermon series of 2020!

Going Deeper
The following are the recommended resources for those who want to go deeper on the topic of Habits.  If you can only purchase one then purchase the first one.    
We look forward to our 2020 journey as we embrace spiritual practices and habits that can help us live and love more like Jesus, all year long.
 
Happy New Year to You and Yours
