Bible Reading Plan for Week of April 14

Our journey through 2 Samuel, the Psalms, and 1 Chronicles continues this week.  Read what occurred in the past and discover truth that you can apply in the present.  Although we are separated from the events described by thousands of years, they are still relevant to us today and can have a huge impact on our lives.  Read with the purpose of knowing God more through His Word.  On Saturday and Sunday, we’ll focus on the Scriptures for our Gospel…

Worship Hospitality

Worship is a weekly time when God’s people gather together to celebrate Jesus.  I look forward to these pivotal times of worship every week.  Oftentimes, people debate as to whether worship should be geared towards members or guests.  In reality, the main audience in worship should be none other than Jesus.  We gather to honor Him – not expect Him to bless us. With that distinction in mind, as church members, we must always be cognizant of the fact that…

Understanding the Book of Psalms

We have already been reading some of the Psalms as a part of our Rocky Creek Bible Reading Plan.  What we have read so far has gone along with events that are described in 1-2 Samuel and 1 Chronicles.  Today we are reading Psalm 1 and 2 so it seems fitting to have some videos today that give us an overview of this book.  As we continue to read through these three books (2 Samuel, 1 Chronicles, Psalms) in the…
