“The 7 ‘I Am’ Statements of Jesus” July & August 2019
During Jesus’ ministry on earth, He said many things that challenged His listeners. In fact, He often used figurative language to relate common objects or concepts with Himself or His Kingdom so that people could better understand his character and purpose. In the Gospel of John, there are seven times in which Jesus says, “I Am ___.” Each statement gives us a glimpse into God’s character and what He’s like.
Note: The weekend of August 18 will be our "Mission Focus" weekend.
"Thoughts and Prayers" June 2019
Whenever a tragedy strikes, national leaders will often announce that they are sending what has become a much-maligned offering of “Thoughts and Prayers.” Many people not only question the sincerity of these offerings, but their effectiveness. “Does prayer do anything?” “Does anyone hear?” In this series, we explore the amazing gift of prayer and why every circumstance - whether it is joyful or tragic- ought to be wrapped in prayer.
“God’s Rescue Plan: New Testament” September 2018 - May 2019
In the Garden of Eden, right after Adam and Eve had first sinned against God, He revealed to them that He was going to send a Savior for mankind: “the descendant of the woman” who would destroy the power of Satan and pay for our sins. The Plan was initiated and developed throughout the period of the Old Testament as God raised up a chosen people (Israel) from the descendants of Abraham through which the Savior would come. The New Testament shows us that God’s Rescue Plan is fulfilled with the coming of Jesus and the development of the Christian Church.
