Engaging in continual communion with God and declaring our dependence on Him with thanksgiving As Christians, we would probably agree that prayer must be a central part of our life – especially if we are to be growing as we should. The problem […]

Come & See Jesus, 2 (Prologue)

Last week we introduced the idea of using the Gospel of John in a casual Bible study setting for those willing to investigate Jesus. The goal of these posts is to provide you with tools so that you feel confident to answer questions, and facilitate discussion about Jesus. Before you begin reading and discussing the […]

Come & See Jesus, 1

The point of the Bible is not simply education, though there is much to learn. Its point is not simply entertainment, though its stories and songs are inspirational. Its point is not simply ethical improvement, though it has shaped the moral life of civilizations. The point of the Bible is to encounter Jesus. (Glen Scrivener, 3 […]

Praying for Muslims

This last weekend followers of Islam all over the world began their yearly ritual of a month-long, daytime fast known as Ramadan.

Church Basics Class

Last summer, our church went through several studies discussing the nature of the local church, church membership, church leadership, and church unity.

One Month Later …

Well, it’s been a couple of months now since we started into out our church-wide initiative of Treasuring Scripture Together. Some of us have been reading for distance through the Storyline of the Bible. Others have been reading for depth through the New Testament. We’ve also committed to memorize Scripture together.
