In John 14:25-27 Jesus is in the upper room with his disciples. His betrayal and death are only hours away. He knows it’s coming, so tells them about the Holy Spirit who will come alongside them as their counselor and advocate in order to give them peace. What a wonderful promise – that peace isn’t something we need to find or pursue, it’s something we receive. That’s an important distinction, isn’t it? Peace isn’t just “out there” to be earned when you figure out the secret to peacefulness. Instead, as Ephesians 2:14 reminds us, “he himself is our peace.” If you are a Christian then you have received the Holy Spirit who has united you with Christ, and Christ himself is our peace!

Joy,

What is it? Some say joy is synonymous with happiness. But is it?

As I sit on my bed with my wife and daughter, looking at the wonder of our four week old foster daughter, my heart is glad because of the love that surrounds her, shown through my wife and children. We are doing what we can for her future and this little eight pound person brings great gladness into our home.

Emmanuel is embarking on providing a new resource that will aid the pursuit of personal integrity and the internet. If you are interested in growing towards Christ and away from the allure of the flesh join us every Thursday starting at 7:00PM for six weeks to get pointed in a new life giving direction.

Hello EBC! We have an opportunity this summer to serve in the West End of Providence with one of our church planting missionaries, Johnny & Jenny Ames. We are looking for 12-15 people who'd like to help run the Summer Off program during the week of July 30 - Aug 2. Summer Off is a vacation bible school program run in a community park with the aim of sharing the gospel with children, their parents and the community.  The fruit of this program is evident by the adults who remember attending the program as children and returned year after year because of the "kindness of those serving them.” We'd love to have you join us this year as we build relationships and plant seeds for the Kingdom.  

All ages are welcome and invited to volunteer.
