Hurricane Irma Special Online Service
Steph and I once again want to remind you that Psalm 27:1-3 says,
“The Lord is my light and my salvation— so why should I be afraid? The Lord is my fortress, protecting me from danger, so why should I tremble? When evil people come to devour me, when my enemies and foes attack me, they will stumble and fall. Though a mighty army surrounds me, my heart will not be afraid. Even if I am attacked, I will remain confident.”
This is our challenge to remain confident!
While we continue to pray that God would move Hurricane Irma out into the Atlantic Ocean, it is important that we prepare for its possible land fall here in South Florida. As a matter of fact, our team of pastors and volunteers are out serving our communities today and putting up shutters for those not able to do so themselves. It is truly an honor to be the church and partner with our city during this time. I’ve attached a short video highlight from this morning that I know will encourage you and make you proud.
Being mindful of the uncertain weather and keeping your safety as our top priority, we will not be having services this weekend at our Hallandale, Bahamas, and Cooper City campuses. We will still be having services at our Pensacola, Miraflores, and Baranco campuses.
In addition to that, our internet campus will begin running a very special service online today, as well as on our app. It includes praise and worship, along with a teaching on what to do with worry. If you find yourself hunkered down and feeling anxious, I encourage you to make the time to check it out. The link is below for you.
I encourage you to get involved and sign up now to help those who will be affected by the storm on our web page www.potentialchurch.com/irma
I also encourage you to continue to be faithful in your giving—to trust God and step out in faith before the storm arrives and give generously. The inability to have weekend services at our Cooper City campus could have a significant impact upon our giving and make it more challenging to help those in need after the storm. Generosity is always an act of faith, and with Irma pointed in our direction, it is even more so. The good news is that God promises us in Psalm 23, and in many other scriptures, that He will provide all that you need, when we have the courage to follow Him in this area of our life.
You can visit www.potentialchurch.com or use our app to give your offering or to help with those who have been and will be affected by Irma.
Steph and I are praying for you and ask that you pray for us as we ride out the storm at our son Tyler’s home in Miramar.
Love you all,
Pastors Troy and Stephanie
PS… I have created a Vlog to bring peace and reflection for you, as well as to follow some of our journey in the last week as we have prepared for the storm at www.youtube/troygramling – be sure to share and subscribe.
