Series-The Book of James: Faith + Action

Last week we learned from Hebrews 12 that God, as a loving Father, disciplines his children. In fact, we learned:

Endure hardship as discipline; God is treating you as his children. For what children are not disciplined by their father? (Hebrews 12:7)

This is pretty significant considering we all face hardships in different areas of our lives.

This week, James begins his letter by address the reality of hardships or trials in our lives. He explains how they are important for us to grow and then he  reveals two temptations we usually encounter when faced with trials.

So let me ask you… Are you facing any trials right now? If so, how are you responding to them? James will impart some timeless wisdom to each of us this week!

To prepare read James 1:1-18.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series:The Book of James
This week we will begin a new series on the Book of James. In it, we discover some important themes:

  • Christianity must not only be believed, it must be lived
  • The proof that our faith is real is a changed life.
  • Genuine faith will inevitably produce good works

Join us as we get an introduction to this incredible book that is filled with wisdom from our loving Father directly to each of us. (Hey, that’s interesting… It’s Father’s Day this Sunday, too! I sense a theme for the day!)

 

To prepare for this introduction to James, read Hebrews 12:4-13 and Mark 7:7-12 (don’t be confused– remember, this is an INTRODUCTION to James… We’ll start reading the actual book next week! : ) )

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

In the series, we explore the Apostle’s Creed to discover the foundations of our Christian Faith.

In this message, we look at the importance of believing in “life everlasting.” The Scripture we focused on is 1 Peter 4:7-11. Unfortunately we missed recording the introduction… the message begins as we read the scripture passage.

the communion of saints,

We’ve been talking about the church for the last couple of weeks… Now we come to this phrase. What does it mean? How do we do it?

That’s what we will be looking at this Sunday. We will also be celebrating the Lord’s Supper together.

To prepare, read Ephesians 4:1-6 and 1 Corinthians 1:10-17.

Looking forward to Sunday!
