He is risen!

When the Sabbath was past, Mary Magdalene, Mary the mother of James, and Salome bought spices, so that they might go and anoint him. And very early on the first day of the week, when the sun had risen, they went to the tomb. And they were saying to one another, “Who will roll away the stone for us from the entrance of the tomb?”And looking up, they saw that the stone had been rolled back—it was very large. And entering the tomb, they saw a young man sitting on the right side, dressed in a white robe, and they were alarmed. And he said to them, “Do not be alarmed. You seek Jesus of Nazareth, who was crucified. He has risen; he is not here. See the place where they laid him. But go, tell his disciples and Peter that he is going before you to Galilee. There you will see him, just as he told you.” ~ Mark 16:1-7 (ESV)

SCRIPTURE AND AUTHORITY IN AN AGE OF SKEPTICISM
FRIDAY, APRIL 21, 2017
5:30PM-12:30AM CDT
(Please arrive at 5:00 p.m.)

THIS YEAR’S TOPIC

The Bible is the foundation for faith among followers of Christ in churches around the world. Yet many such Christians never think to ask why this is the case. After all . . .

  • How did we get this holy book?
  • Who decided what would and wouldn’t be included in it?
  • How do we know it’s true? Are there any errors in it?
  • Is it necessary? Is it sufficient? Is it authoritative for my life?
  • How can I understand it?

Even as Christians ask and answer such pivotal questions, the culture around us asks even more pressing questions: Isn’t the Bible antiquated and outdated? Isn’t it chauvinistic and offensive? Isn’t it downright deceptive and ultimately dangerous?

During this Secret Church, we will explore answers to critical questions about the Bible in order to discern what place it should (or should not) have in the lives of Christians and the implications those answers have for our lives, our families, and our churches in the culture around us.

Study guides and refreshments will be served.  There is no charge for this event.

If you would like to attend, please send an email to info (at) christalonechurch.org with the names of people attending.

 

 

From our 2nd Saturday morning breakfast

On the second and fifth Saturdays of each month, Christ Alone Church hosts a community breakfast, where anyone in need of a meal and/or companionship is invited!  We have been involved in this mission initiative for about three years, where a wonderful community has developed, we have made many friends, we have heard and prayed about many needs and concerns, and we have had opportunities to share the gospel.

Here are the workers from this morning’s breakfast:

The next breakfast will be Saturday, April 8, from 8-10 a.m.

Perspectives is coming to Christ Alone Church!

Perspectives on the World Christian Movement is coming to Christ Alone Church in January 2017!

We believe that God has a “world-sized” role for every Christian in His global purpose.  It’s central to who we are as members of the Evangelical Presbyterian ChurchWhether people go to distant countries or stay at home is a secondary issue. The primary issue is what most people are hungry to discover: vision to live a life of purpose.  The purpose of the Perspectives on the World Christian Movement Course is to help people clarify that vision.

Perspectives is coming to Christ Alone Church!  Beginning January 15, 2017 -- sign up now for an early bird discount.  Visit http://www.perspectives.org for more information and to register.

Perspectives is a fifteen week course designed around four vantage points or “perspectives” — Biblical, Historical, Cultural and Strategic.  Each one highlights different aspects of God’s global purpose.  The Biblical and Historical sections reveal why our confidence is based on the historic fact of God’s relentless work from the dawn of history until this day.  The Cultural and Strategic sections underscore that we are in the midst of a costly, but very “do-able” task, confirming the Biblical and Historical hope.

This year, the course will run (Sunday evenings) between January 15 and May 7, and is being taught here at Christ Alone Church.  Enroll by December 15 (early bird deadline) to receive a $25 discount.  Register at Perspectives.org.

September 16 is Movie Night!

With the success of our summer movie nights, we’ve decided to continue!  Our September movie night will be Friday, September 16, and we will be showing God’s Not Dead 2.

gods-not-dead-2-trailerFrom the college classroom of GOD’S NOT DEAD to the public square in GOD’S NOT DEAD 2, the name of Jesus is welcomed less and less with each passing day. If Christians don’t take a stand today, will we even have a choice tomorrow?

Welcome back to Hope Springs … home not only of Hadleigh University, but also Martin Luther King Jr. High School, where beloved teacher Grace Wesley helps students understand and enjoy history. Her love of teaching, her love for her students, and her love of life all come from the same place: her love of Christ.

So when Brooke, a hurting student grieving the loss of her brother, reaches out to Grace, their coffee-shop conversation naturally leads to Grace sharing the hope she finds in Christ.

When Brooke later asks an honest question about Jesus in the classroom, Grace’s reasoned response lands her in big trouble—almost before she even finishes giving her answer.

With the principal and superintendent joining forces with a zealous civil liberties group, Grace faces an epic court case that could cost her the career she loves and expel God from the classroom—and the public square—once and for all!

When: Friday, September 16, 6:30 p.m.
Where: Fellowship Hall (lower level)

Popcorn and beverages will be served.  Join us!
