A Word from Our Pastor
Good morning, FBC Family!
This morning we welcome the Corsicana Tiger Tennis Team to worship with us! Go Tigers!
We are also continuing our sermon series on the Gospel of Mark called, “The reMARKable Life of Jesus!”
Today’s message is about the great power of teamwork, and I’m happy to point out that God believes in teamwork. In fact, God exists as a team even with Himself—Father, Son, & Holy Spirit. In Genesis 1 God said, “Let US make man in OUR own image.” There is a great statement you’ve probably heard…“Teamwork makes the dream work!” And that’s so true! The great American industrialist, Andrew Carnegie also wrote, “Teamwork is the ability to work together toward a common vision. It is the fuel that allows common people to obtain uncommon results.”
As we talk about teamwork today, I hope you will feel the call to be on God’s Team!
