Celebrating Mother’s Day at Discovery Church saw 3 special women share their hearts. Senior Pastor Jody Destry, Service & Events Pastor Melissa Donovan and Youth Pastor Tiani Walters each had a unique perspective of motherhood from both being a mother and being a child. It was a really special Sunday.
Jody shared on Resurrection Sunday that God sought us out. While we thought we were seeking God, it was actually Him that found us in our hiding, and brought us out of our sin and shame into resurrection life of peace, hope and joy.
Guest Speaker, Shane Willard speaks from the Book of Numbers. We look at how important the presence of God is, where the presence of God is, there is life. We see this all through Numbers and so we must actively seek the presence and touch of God in our lives.
Guest Speaker, Shane Willard spoke on the historical significance of the entrance of Jesus to Jerusalem on the day we now know as Palm Sunday. The significance of everything happening on that day, during the celebration of the Passover is astounding. Prophecy fulfilled. Shane leaves us with an encouragement to approach the challenges in our lives like Jesus on a donkey, not like Pilate on a warhorse.
Matt speaks to us on how we live in a place of counter culture. We can see how our conflict comes into context: we have a great joy that can never be taken away even in the midst of persecution and suffering.
