  NOTES: Download: The_Shepherd   The Shepherd • 1 Peter 5:1-4 INTRODUCTION 1. Today is special in the life of our church because we ordain 2 men as pastors: Christ Vanoli & Noel Duldulao. 2. Chris, as you know, has been our worship leader for 7 yrs. a. He oversees all the tech support that goes into that; the PA, projection & video b. He also oversees facilities upkeep, repair & maintenance. Chris oversaw the recent remodel. c. He’s also been doing more teaching lately; His giftedness there is obvious. 3. So it’s time for us to recognize God’s call on Christ to join the team of pastors here at Calvary. 4. Noel has attended CCO for nearly 20 yrs, & been an active partner in ministry for the last 10. a. Noel’s is from the PI. He & his family have a great burden to plant a CC in Laoag City in NW Luzon. b. They’ve taken several extended trips there and God has formed a good core to start. c. So Noel leaves here...

Reference: Jeremiah 7:1-16 Date: 28 October 2012   NOTES Download: Too_Late   Too Late • Jer. 7:1-16   I. INTRODUCTION • Read vs. 1-4 A. 3 Groups 1. There are many ways we could segment this room today into groups. By age, education, ethnicity; lots of ways. 2. We could make 3 groups according to how we approach the things of God. 3. Group 1 loves Jesus and follows Him faithfully. a. They’re not perfect, but they want to be & it bugs them they’re not. b. They long to grow in grace & truth & live as close to Jesus as possible. 4. I’m going to skip Group 2 for now & come back to them in a moment. 5. Group 3 is on the other end of the spectrum from Group 1. a. The people in Group 3 are like the people of Jeremiah’s day. b. As we’ll see, they assumed (wrongly, it turns out) that everything between God & them was cool. c. They were religious, but not righteous. d. Unlike Group 1, those in Group 3 have no real relationship...
