A Very Special Guest, Gary Kinnaman
 
It's been an exciting week at Discovery.

Last Sunday we had our first ever Community Sunday Breakfast, which was wonderful. It's a new tradition to look forward to on the first Sunday of each month.

The last several days, our junior high and high school students have enjoyed a great fall retreat.

And this Sunday we have with us special guest and friend of Discovery, Gary Kinnaman. You will be glad you came! A skilled communicator, Gary has been a key leader and equipper of churches in the east valley for many decades.

See you then!

I hope you plan on joining us this weekend for our first ever community Sunday breakfast and service. It all starts at 10 AM but we are doing something brand new.

When you arrive, we will have a free breakfast with pancakes and eggs all ready for you. We encourage you to invite friends and family to join you.

Hope in the Dark: Waiting on God
 
This Sunday we are continuing the series, Hope in the Dark. I have discovered that I am made stronger and know God much more intimately in the valleys than on the mountains. I am looking forward to being able to give inspiration and encouragement from God's Word for all those feeling the chaos/darkness of the valleys in this world.

We are studying the book of Habakkuk and learning to respond to the darkness of the world in which we live. Specifically, we will be looking at how we wait on God in the valley moments of life. We can experience a hope that carries us above the storm!

Then next weekend, Sunday Oct 7th, we are launching the new version of Community Sunday. When you show up to church on Sunday at 10 AM, we'll have a chance to enjoy breakfast with the family of God. In addition, the worship and teaching will be awesome! We encourage you to invite a friend or two! 

Much love, 

Ben Taylor 

Lead Pastor

Hope in the Dark
 
 


 
New Series Begins this Sunday
 
Hope in the Dark is one of the most timely sermon series I have ever preached at Discovery Community Church. Many are experiencing problems, hardship, and pain.

Jesus shared with his disciples (and us), "In this world you will have trouble." I have discovered that to be true and you have as well. There can be some dark moments that you and I experience. I have also discovered that in the middle of those dark moments, it is tough to see clearly. We have a difficult time navigating the pain, the hardship, and the storm. I believe there are many out there reading this who are struggling.

Jesus also said to his disciples (and us), "But take heart, I have overcome the world." We are going to begin to see clearly that there is a penetrating hope that makes all the difference in the world. The darkness will be dispelled and hope will take over.

I can't wait to see you this Sunday at 10 AM as we kick-off this incredible new series. I love you and it is a privilege to serve as your pastor.

Biblical Community
 
You and I were created to live in community. It is tragic that far too many people in the world today feel isolated and alone. God has created you and I for life-giving relationships. I am falling in love with this idea of living in biblical community. Here is a description of what true community looks like in the Bible:

Acts 2:42-47 They devoted themselves to the apostles’ teaching and to fellowship, to the breaking of bread and to prayer. Everyone was filled with awe at the many wonders and signs performed by the apostles. All the believers were together and had everything in common. They sold property and possessions to give to anyone who had need. Every day they continued to meet together in the temple courts. They broke bread in their homes and ate together with glad and sincere hearts, praising God and enjoying the favor of all the people. And the Lord added to their number daily those who were being saved.

I love that the New Testament church were together and had everything in common. I love that they joined together in one another's homes to do life together. This week we are wrapping up our series, Biblical Community.

I hope you will join us Sunday @ 10 AM. I love you and it is a privilege to serve as your pastor.
