Our guest preacher today is Dr. Parnell M. Lovelace, Jr. He is the founding pastor of Center of Praise Ministries, a 3500-member congregation in midtown Sacramento which he has shepherded for 25 years. Parnell has graduate degrees in both Social Work and Theology from Oral Roberts University and a Doctor of Ministry from Talbot Seminary (Biola). We’re honored to have one of our city’s pastor-statesmen bringing us God’s Word today.
As disciples of Jesus Christ we have been enlisted on a team of believers called to impact the world. Each act of service for others gives us opportunity to grow in our faith and obedience. Our salvation serves as our launch towards acts of redemption, justice, and empowerment towards others.
2 Peter 1:1-11
