Join us, immediately following worship on July 22, for a spaghetti dinner and a video from this year’s World Outreach dinner address to kick off our late summer study of EPC World Outreach missionary Greg Livingstone’s autobiography, You’ve Got Libya.
On Sunday, August 5, from 2:00-3:30 p.m., Pastor Ted Tromble will begin leading the study of World Outreach missionary (and now senior adviser) Greg Livingstone’s autobiography, You’ve Got Libya. Through this approximate six week study, we will study Greg’s book, pray for our missionaries, work the ACTS prayer model, and contemplate a mission work trip sometime in the year ahead.
From the product description:
Greg Livingstone has spent a lifetime planting churches in Muslim communities and can testify to the life-changing power of the gospel in even the most unpromising circumstances. This is his autobiography.
You’ve Got Libya charts Greg’s journey from a disadvantaged beginning through his adventures as he travels all over the world proclaiming the gospel. This firsthand narrative is full of compelling humor and self-deprecating honesty. The result is a page-turning tour de force that urges the reader to pursue God unreservedly and to join with Him in the adventure of pursuing the lost.
Greg’s burden for the millions of Muslims who had no gospel witness amongst them led to the launching of Frontiers, a mission agency focusing exclusively on church planting amongst Muslim communities. Today, Frontiers is a movement of more than one thousand field workers in nearly fifty countries.
Questions? Contact Pastor Ted, call the church office at 857-3231, or email us at info (at) christalonechurch.org. We look forward to your joining us in this meaningful study!
All adults are invited to join us at 8:30 a.m. on Sunday mornings, beginning September 9, for a study of Ruth and Esther.
The books of Ruth and Esther recount two of the most moving stories in all of Scripture: Ruth, a displaced widow in search of a new home and loving husband, and Esther, a courageous queen intent on saving her people from imminent destruction.
This guide explains the biblical text with clarity and passion – leading us on a journey to discover the God who hears the cries of his people and remains faithful to his promises.
Caroline Tromble and Jodi Buntin will lead this study in Room 11 on the lower level, and study guides will be provided. A sign up sheet will be in the Narthex, please sign up so we have enough guides for everyone.
A new women’s Bible study begins at Christ Alone Church on Wednesday, September 5, from 6:30-7:30 p.m. and they will be studying Extracting the Precious from Galatians by Donna Partow and Lin Johnson. This study will meet on the first and third Wednesday of each month in the Orange Room.
Donna Partow, teaming with Lin Johnson, brings Scripture alive for both individuals and Bible study groups as readers search the Word, consider its message, and apply its truth to their lives. Galatians examines the believers’ relationship with Christ, focusing on spiritual freedom and its benefits.
This study will be led by Jodi Vandiver and Sarah Smith. Study guides are available in digital format from Amazon.com, or from various book sellers.
For questions, please contact Jodi Vandiver or Sarah Smith.
