Creation & Revelation

Psalm 19 is a key passage to help explain how we learn about the character and nature of God. Creation tells us there is a God.  Revelation tells us what he is like [Ps. 19:1, 7]. If you read Psalm 19:1-6, the psalmist proclaims that creation shows us that God exists.  Most people look at a night sky or a beautiful landscape on earth and proclaims, “How could anyone not believe there is a God?”  Creation takes us that far…

August 6-12 Missions Prayer List

This week, August 6-12 we would like for you to pray for these two Mission Partners. Chuck Mayo – Heritage Baptist Church, Greenville, SC – chuckmayo@icloud.com Prayers: It’s been a good summer.  One of the women from the neighborhood surrendered to Christ through our life on life discipleship process.  It was so exciting to hear her exclamation, “I actually understand when I read my Bible.”  She had prayed a prayer in VBS when she was younger, but really had no…

Wednesday Schedule Starting August 23

This summer on Wednesday nights we have been “GOING”!  Teams went to conduct a VBS at the apartment complex, to visit shut-ins, to serve with ministry partners, to pray, to teach the Bible while playing basketball, to contact people about joining a Gospel Group, and to work around the campus. These GO Teams will keep going on Wednesday August 9 and 16, but on August 23 at 6:30pm we will start our new schedule for Wednesday nights.  This schedule will run from…

New Gospel Groups Starting

With the beginning of the new church year, we will start using the Gospel Project curriculum from LifeWay in all our Gospel Groups.  If you are wondering what a Gospel Group is, I encourage you to check out the post that Travis has written about them.   A Gospel Group is a group smaller than a group in a worship service that gathers together for the purpose of discipleship. Starting on Sunday, September 3, Gospel Groups will continue at 9:00am and 10:30am.  At…

4 Months in the Word

Your word is a lamp to my feet and a light to my path.  -Ps. 119:105 As a pastor, there are so many things I would love to see happen in our church.  My prayers focus on many things I would like to see be transformed within our lives, our homes, our church, and our community.  As I have prayed, I have come to a realization: Any good desire I have for our church originates from the Bible. My hope…

Family Reconciliation

When a family relationship is strained, how does the Bible expect you to respond? Main Points Rom. 12:18 Heb. 12:18 Col. 3:13 If it is your fault, seek forgiveness.  (James 5:16) If it isn’t your fault, offer forgiveness.  (Matt. 5:23-24)

Psalm 51 – August 6

Read the passages this week and think about these questions Psalm 51 2 Samuel 11:1-12:14 1 John 1:5-10   Compared to David, do you feel you are a great sinner? Compared to God’s Word, are you a great sinner? It is important to acknowledge sin, but why are we so reluctant to confess our sin at times? What words does David use for sin? What does He ask God to do about his sin? After receiving God’s forgiveness, what should…

Gospel Groups

As we grow in the gospel, we must realize our need for one another in this process.  As iron sharpens iron, so one man sharpens another (Prov. 27:17).  We need to spur one another on to love and good deeds (Heb. 10:24-25). We must encourage one another to grow in the gospel continually.  But what does that really look like? As believers, we talk about the gospel often, but do we really know what it is and why we need…

Parental Nags

If parents nag about everything, children will not listen to anything. Main Points Col. 3:21 – Fathers, do not provoke your children, lest they become discouraged. Prov. 25:24 – It is better to live in a corner of the roof than in a house shared with a quarrelsome woman. If parents nag about everything, children will not listen to anything. Let your “yes” be so frequent that your “no” stands out. Choose the parental hills you wish to die upon.
