Bruce Symes gave the Communion Meditation, reminding us that our Father is in control, and that nothing is a surprise to him.
Pastor Chase Riebel gave the sermon on the ability to grow and respond to the environment. In the parable about the farmer scattering seed, Jesus tells about the different environments in which the seed falls: falling on the footpath, shallow soil, seeds that fell in the thorns, and those that fell in fertile soil. To have a fruitful harvest, God wants his word to take root in your heart. To take root, it must be fertile soil that his word falls on.
