This weekend, we continue through the first chapter of 1 Peter. Peter shows his readers the importance of being sober-minded and having the resolve to stay focused on God and what He is doing, even in the face of uncertainty. This is such a critical reminder, not only for Peter’s audience, but for us as well. The title of this weekend’s message is “FIRM RESOLVE.”
It is always so amazing to walk around these different locations, knowing that you are standing on sites mentioned in Scripture! It’s like watching the stories of the Bible come to life before your very eyes! This weekend, we will hear from some of the team members that just returned. They will share about what this trip meant to them, how it changed their perspective of the Bible, and how it helped them to grow in the faith. The title of the message this weekend is “WALKING IN THE STEPS.”
This weekend, we are taking a look at the nature of Jesus. He is fully God, and yet He became fully man. Scholars have debated this for hundreds of years, and yet it was always part of God’s perfect plan of redemption. The title of our message this weekend is “TRUE ESTEEM PART TWO.”
This weekend, as Pastor Shah is traveling, we will hear from several men who are going to share what God has laid on their hearts. It is such a blessing to be part of a church that is filled with godly leaders and teachers! These messages will encourage and challenge us to live out our faith and to make Christ visible in our daily lives.
Something is wrong when people live in a perpetual state of “I want to get away from here.” In this kind of thinking, people are unhappy and disgruntled with where they live and/or work.
Our message will look back to the time when the people of God came together to rebuild the temple. It was a tough task but everyone cooperated and offered their gifts and talents to the building of the house of God.
In this Summer Bible Study we will be learning how to pick the best Bible translation. Don't be misled by the title. This is not just about picking between NIV and KJV or NASB and THE MESSAGE. We will be looking at deeper issues as to what goes behind translating the ancient languages in which the Bible was written. We will be debating issues such as "Is form more important than meaning or vice-versa?" Don't miss this!
