Men’s & Women’s Bible Study (Wednesdays)
The Men’s and Women’s Bible study groups will be meeting together every Wednesday beginning Wednesday, June 7, at 6:30 p.m.
Study leaders Ed Keating and Ruth Vollrath will lead the group in a study of the book, The Power of Prayer and the Ministry of the Word:
Against all odds, 2,000 years ago 12 men turned the world upside down by dedicating themselves to these two spiritual disciplines. It was against all odds because the Roman Empire ruled the world with an iron fist. They won all their arguments by killing their enemies. The Empire was doing everything in its power to stop Christianity from spreading including feeding Christians to the lions!
Today, we have the incredible perspective of being able look out over 2,000 years of recorded history, and what do we see? There are more Christians alive at this moment than the total population of the Roman Empire over its entire 500 year history, and the lions and the tigers are on the endangered spices list.
Since neither God nor His Word have changed (For God to change He’d either have to get better or worse, that’s impossible, He’s perfect!), the power of prayer and the ministry of the Word has not diminished. That means it’s available to anyone who is willing to do the will of God!
The reason most prayer meetings are so poorly attended and boring is because we don’t understand the principles of prayer as revealed in the Lord’s Prayer!
If you are interested, contact Ed or Ruth to order a copy of the book.
Youth Group (Wednesdays)
Our Youth Group will continue to meet on Wednesdays, beginning with social time at 5:00 p.m. for a simple meal and games, and then moving into study time at 6:30 p.m.
Contact Youth Leader Joy Goeben for more information.
Adult Bible Study (Sundays)
The Adult Bible Study will be doing two studies this summer, beginning on Sunday, May 28 at 8:30 a.m.
Burning Desire (Obadiah/Malachi)
From the product description:
The smallest charges can be the most explosive. The books of Obadiah and Malachi are among the briefest in the Bible, but their contents are pure dynamite. Both prophets provide us with portraits of a God who can be passionate, weary with displeasure, possessive and angry. Even a God who hates. And yet this same God keeps his promises, does not change, and throws open the windows of heaven to those who turn to him.
In the light of the gospel, Burning Desire expolores the different fates of Jacob and Esau’s descendants, one of which will be blessed with a Saviour who will rise from the ashes of judgment with “healing in his wings”.
Promised Land (Vol. 1 of the Faith Lessons/That the World May Know series)
From the product description:
In Promised Land, [leader Ray] Vander Laan illustrates how God guided his people to a specific place – the Promised Land – to impact the world both in ancient times and today. Just like the time and place of our birth shapes our journey, so the land and culture of the Hebrew people shaped their story. Promised Land provides wonderful context to the stories of that time.
Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God’s Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible’s fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures’ significance for modern believers. …
