Bob Russell, well-known preacher and author, will be preaching at Fairmount on December 4. Our current preaching series, “When God Builds a Church”, is based on the book by the same name published by Bob in 2000. Bob retired from Southeast Christian Church in Louisville, KY, in 2006. During his 30-year ministry there, the church grew from 125 folks to over 18,000. The Southeast family has seen first-hand what happens when folks get out of the way and let God build His church.
Bob’s book and this sermon series are powerful reminders that God is not a builder of buildings – He is a builder of churches. God is constructing each and every one of us to be the church – the people – that He wants us to be in this world that is desperately in need of truth, grace, peace, and hope.
Bob will be preaching at three worship services on Sunday: the 8:15 service, 9:30 service, and a combined 11:00 service. We had hoped to be in our new space by December 4, but it does not look like we will be. In this light, our two 11:00 services will gather together in the sanctuary to worship together and to be blessed by Bob’s inspiring preaching.
It is going to be a great Sunday. You don’t want to miss it – and you’ll want to invite your friends.
