Communion Sunday

Dear church family, First, a bit of news about this Sunday – It will be communion Sunday! We are so looking forward to sharing in the Lord’s table together. It is an remembrance of what the Lord has done for us, a living and visual proclamation of the Gospel, and a manifestation of the unity of the body of Christ. We want as many of us as possible to be able to participate in as safe a manner as possible,…

Pastors’ Briefing -July 17, 2020

Dear church family, Once again, thank you for so many ways that you are being the body of Christ for each other, and being a light to the world. We continue to hear about phone calls, visits, Gospel opportunities, small group meetings, and so many other ways that you are loving and serving. I personally am so blessed to be a part of Cary Alliance. We are the Church, and Jesus is Lord of the Church! Lots of good and…

Pray for July 26th

Dear Church family, Thank you for being the church during these trying times. I have rejoiced at stories of people being led to Jesus, small groups meeting for prayer and encouragement, shut-ins receiving caring and loving phone-calls, and the Lord’s provision of grace, comfort, and healing. Children have been ministered to on-line, youth have begun to meet in appropriate ways, and the life and mission of the church continues, even as we have not been meeting in person. Thank you…

Church and Race

A message from your pastors and Elders about the Church and race Dear Church family,  Several events of the last few weeks have brought the question of racism to the forefront. This is an important conversation, and while we don’t wish to offer political interpretations of these events, we do feel like it is important to speak unequivocally about what the Bible has to say. Jesus was born into a world rife with hate, into a people downtrodden and despised.…

CAC Update

Dear church family, Thank you. I personally am so blessed and encouraged. What I’m talking about is the love and faithfulness of our church family. Later in this e-mail we talk a little bit about giving, but I just want to start out with thanks for being the body of Christ: So many have worked so hard to re-orient their ministries during these days. So often I hear about phone calls, yard visits, and cards sent out. Or about loving…

A Timely Promise

Dear church family, We on the staff are so grateful for you and pray for you, and we’re looking forward to sharing our Resurrection Day celebration with you: “The Lord is Risen!” As the crisis situation settles in, many of us are dealing with a pretty deeply-seated anxiety. There are a lot of unknowns in the mid- and long-term future. That can be scary. I’d like to share two weapons that are helpful to me in overcoming anxiety, and the…

Unity of the Spirit

Dear church family, As we begin to figure out the new normal, a couple of things have come up in conversation with folks on the phone. One is a real desire to take advantage of extra time with the Lord, but somehow finding that’s not happening. It’s pretty easy to while away the time binge-watching a favorite program and scrolling through social media. For me it’s time spent keeping up with the news. Not that those things are bad, but…

Fugitive in Crisis – Psalm 3

Take a journey through Psalm 3 with David facing his own crisis as his life is turned upside down. We can relate to his plight as we face the COVID-19 crisis.

It’s Good to Talk

We are living in unprecedented and uncertain times. With the spread of COVID-19, many of us are left feeling unsure of what life will look like for the present and the future. With an invisible danger spreading throughout our communities, and with the real possibility of an economic recession, it is easy to feel worried, anxious, depressed, and even paralyzed. During times like this, here is something to remember: It’s good to talk. Talking will not change our circumstances usually.…

Thriving As A Part of the Church Family

Dear church family, I just got done listening to the news conference in which Wake County announced a stay-at-home order. We have never seen times like these, and most of us have never lived under similar restrictions. Much is being stripped away. The things that are important, however, remain unchanged. The grass withers and the flowers fade, but the Word of the Lord remains forever! From everlasting to everlasting, He is God! COVID-19 will pass, but not even the gates…

Church Life during COVID-19

Greetings Church family! In desperate circumstances David asked “When the foundations are shaken, what can the righteous do?” And the answer came: “The Lord is in His holy temple. The Lord is on His heavenly throne.” He’s still God, Jesus still saves, and the Church is still His bride and His ambassador. Let’s keep loving Him and reaching people!
