In our final service together in 2013, Pastor John leads the church in recounting the goodness of God over the past year. He used Hebrews 10:24-25 as a way to transition the service into a corporate time of encouragement. It says, "And let us consider how to stir up one another to love and good works, not neglecting to meet together, as is the habit of some, but encouraging one another, and all the more as you see the Day drawing near." Psalm 111:1 also says, "Praise the Lord! I will give thanks to the Lord with my whole heart, in the company of the upright, in the congregation."
