Our “Getting Ready” series enters on chapter 2 of Joshua this weekend as we get ready to SEE. We will see that God is already moving; that faith is increasing; that others are being influences, and that hearts are being convinced. As always, our worship music, prayer, friendship and learning will all be a blessing. Pastor Dan’s weekly TGIW bible study will also be taken from the Book of Joshua.

Lesson 23 - What is worship? How much does it depend upon tastes, traditions, and temperment? When you worship God in a Christian setting, what do you think it's about?

Good News?

Presently, our society is being fed a steady diet of doomsday stories. We seem to really enjoy being scared out of our wits and then rescued by super-saviors. Why are we so obsessed with impending doom? Why is it easier to believe in comic book heroes than in Jesus Christ? What if such stories give us a glimpse of things to come?

Lesson 21 - The Body of Christ in the World. The Church is a radically gifted and radically flawed emodiment of Christ even while it is a human institution. It is a means of God's grace though it members are not always grace-filled. It is a work of the Holy Spirit though some members are not born again by the Spirit. 

Next week: Lesson 22 - Sacrements

 

Next week's readings: Genesis 8:20-22; 12:1-9; Exodus 12:1-28; 43-51; Matthew 3; 28:16-20; Mark 14:12-26; John 6:25-59; Acts 8:26-40; 1 Corinthians 10:1-22; 11:17-34

Advent is a season of preparation that serves as a reminder of Christ’s first coming and the certainty of the same progression of prophecies, signs, and wonders for His return. Ironically, the Western-secular Christmas experience starts around the end of October and ends on Christmas day. The entire season is shaped around material and spiritual matter that has little to do with Christ’s Second Coming. In fact, such talk, especially of the signs, is thought to be depressing and generally negative. Could this be the kind of deception Jesus was speaking of?

Lesson 20 - God has designed us for community, just as God is a trinitarian community. It is not good for us to be alone. Furthermore, we have been set apart for God's purposes. The Church is the Body of Christ and we are its members.

Next week: Lesson 21 - The Body of Christ in the World

Next week's readings: Psalm 122; Isaiah 52:1-12; Matthew 13:24-30; 18:15-22; 1 Corinthians 12:12-31; Ephesians 1:2-23; Ephesians 2:11-22; Colossians 1:15-29; 1 Timothy 3; 1 Peter 2:1-10; Revelation 2;
