Also, we’ll continue streaming our Adult Sabbath School Class on FACEBOOK starting at 9:30 a.m. each week.

Please continue to keep in touch with each other, particularly our sick or elderly members. Let the church leadership know if there's anything we can do to help. We're here for you. See below for contact info.


"Now may the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you will abound in hope by the power of the Holy Spirit." Romans 15:13 NASB

The Alpharetta Church is excited to present Vespers on the Lawn each Sabbath evening from 6-8 pm. (In inclement weather, we'll move inside.)

Various programs, Bible games, devotionals/discussions, and testimonies are scheduled to bring the Sabbath to a close. Feel free to bring your own picnic supper, and chairs or blankets. See you there!

A Moment with Pastor Luke
When I was becoming a follower of Jesus and living on my grandparents' farm in North Carolina, there was always one day that couldn't arrive soon enough—Sabbath. During the week, I'd be out building a fence for the horses, landscaping the property, or finishing up on renovations that needed to be done. It was always a blast, but was also entirely exhausting work, and the Sabbath was the day of rest and renewal. Friday night would come, and out of nowhere, no matter how exhausted I'd be from the week, I would get this jolt of energy that would carry through Saturday into Saturday evening. I remember asking my grandmother why that would happen and her response would always be simple, "that's the Sabbath for you." At first I didn't understand, but the longer I stayed in North Carolina, and the more Sabbaths that passed, something started to happen in my heart. I started to not only physically rest, but to also let myself rest emotionally and spiritually. I started to forget about the stress regarding what I might study in school or who my future spouse might be, and began thinking about how complete I could be with Christ. How restful I could be because of the work that He has accomplished for me. 

In Psalm 92 the psalmist says, "For you, O LORD, have made me glad by your work; at the works of your hands I sing for joy." (92:4). Now this is the only Psalm specifically dedicated to the Sabbath and it's centered around God's love and faithfulness in His work. How wonderful that the Sabbath is not only a day for us to rest physically, but it is also a day to remind ourselves that Christ has accomplished the work on our behalf by standing in our place on the cross. Because of His love for us, we can be glad and sing for joy! Hallelujah to Him! 

Because of how God used the Sabbath to show me His love and saving grace I often open the Sabbath by reading Psalm 92. I encourage you to take some time and read this psalm sometime on Sabbath because I know God wants to remind us how glad we can be because of His great work!

Happy Sabbath, Church!
Pastor Luke
