What is the Gospel Project?

The Gospel Project is a curriculum for preschoolers, children, students, and adults that is published by LifeWay.  It is “a Christ-centered, chronological study that will take [you] on a journey through the storyline of Scripture, from Genesis to Revelation.  Along the way, [you] will discover the big picture of what God has been doing throughout redemptive history, and what it means for [you].” Each week we’ll investigate a passage of Scripture and discover how it points to Jesus.  We’ll also…

Basketball and the Gospel Project

I started playing basketball in elementary school, and I still enjoy playing today, although it is at a much slower pace.  However, for me to play basketball, my body has to work together to accomplish this goal.  First, my mind says that today is a good day to go to the gym and play,  Once I arrive, my legs take me onto the court.  Then, I use my hands to catch the ball, and I use my eyes to look at the basket. …

College Groups

Statistics say that many students who have grown up in the church decide to drop out once they get to college.  For whatever reason, for these students, being connected to a Bible study group and attending worship services are not high on their priority list.  However, at Rocky Creek we want college students to be an active, integral part of our church family. Therefore, we have two morning worship services (9:00am and 10:30am) and two opportunities for college age students to be…

Pray a Psalm a Day

My attempt to discipline myself for the purpose of godliness (1 Tim. 4:7) has changed throughout the years, but these days, I have 3 spiritual disciplines I attempt to engage in everyday. One of those 3 disciplines is that I pray through one psalm everyday.  It’s a practice I shared about in the sermon “This Is the House That God Built.”  I have been super encouraged already with the number of people who jumped into the process this morning.  Here’s…

Psalm 84 – July 2

Read the passages this week and think about these questions Psalm 84 Psalm 42   How are you demonstrating a longing for God and His truth? What is different about the God of the Bible as compared to false gods? (84:2) How is God described in Psalm 84? Why can we have confidence in God? Who are the blessed (happy) people? Are you blessed today? Do you desire God’s presence more than anything else? Are you trusting in God today…

How to Share Your Testimony

People can resort to arguments, but they can’t argue with results. In our efforts to grow in the gospel, we must learn how to share our testimony of how we came to faith in Christ.  There are many arguments out there regarding the validity of the Bible or the skepticism concerning a God you cannot see, but most people respect personal stories.  We live in a time when people are very defensive regarding what they believe, but a good majority…

“And what you have heard from me in the presence of many witnesses entrust to faithful men, who will be able to teach others also” (2 Tim. 2:2).
