July 3rd News: Who Is John?

June 29, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will begin a new series on the Book of 1 John.

In this epistle (a letter written to the churches to share), we see some foundational truths of the Christian faith that are as important today as they were when it was written.

In a time when truth is so often difficult to discern and opinions run rampant, where can we turn to learn the truths of God. Fortunately, our heavenly Father has provided his Word, the Bible, to provide a solution for this problem.

During the summer, we will look at 1 John and learn what God has to say about who he is, who we are, and how we are to live. To prepare, read 1 John 1:1-9 and also think about what you know about the Apostle John– the author of 1 John.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series: The Treasure Principle

Message: Say So

The Treasure Principle by Randy Alcorn, will help us discover the joy of giving.

In this message, look at a parable of Jesus and wrap up the series with a time of sharing what God has been telling us during this series (this is not a part of the audio recording because of the sound issues of people talking from the congregation).

June 26th News: Treasure Principle Say So

June 23, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series– The Treasure Principle

This Sunday we will focus on two things:

1) Provide a summary of what we have been learning over the last 6 weeks in our study of The Treasure Principle by sharing what God has been doing in your heart and mind as we’ve learned biblical principles about giving and generosity.

2) Eat– we will have a pot luck brunch together.

The way to prepare for the service time is to think about these questions and share your thoughts with the group:

1)   What did you learn?

2)   What did God tell you?

3)   How were you challenged?

4)   How have/will you respond?

You can also prepare by reading Luke 12:13-34

The way to prepare for the eating time is to bring a dish to share and something to drink!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series– The Treasure Principle

Message– Part 6: For a Time Such As This

This Sunday, we will conclude our series called The Treasure Principle from the book by Randy Alcorn.

After studying god’s Word to learn more about giving and generosity, there comes a time to decide how we are going to respond.

This Sunday we look at a very familiar story with, perhaps, new eyes when it comes to our money and resources. We will see that we are in an incredible position to serve God and others in a powerful way.

To prepare, read Esther 4:14 and Luke 10:25-37.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will teach us in the sermons, our individual reading of The Treasure Principle, and our Wednesday night group time.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series– The Treasure Principle

Message– Part 5: Getting Started

This Sunday, we will continue our series called The Treasure Principle from the book by Randy Alcorn.

As we have been seeing God’s view about our giving, you may have decided that you would like to be more generous with your money and possession. If that’s the case, you may also be wondering how to start giving.

God presents guidelines about that for us in his word. As you prepare for tomorrow, read Malachi 3:6-12 and Luke 19:1-10.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will teach us in the sermons, our individual reading of The Treasure Principle, and our Wednesday night group time.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Questions For God: Eyes On Eternity

June 2, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

As we continue our series focusing on Randy Alcorn’s book The Treasure Principle, we have been looking at some “Questions for God” each week in our Wednesday Night Study.

The purpose of these “Questions for God”  is to prompt you to honestly approach your heavenly Father with uncertainties, fears, joys, and new discoveries. I encourage you to pray these questions to your Father, and note any responses He provides through His Word, the Holy Spirit, or wise fellow believers.

 

1) As I move toward death, am I backing away from my treasure, or moving toward it. Am I living in despair, or in joyful anticipation?

2) I recognize the potential my passions and desires have to cause great harm or to achieve great good. God, will You help me direct my treasure and my passions toward You and Your eternal purposes?

Series– The Treasure Principle

Message– Part 4: Roadblocks to Giving

This Sunday, we will continue our series called The Treasure Principle from the book by Randy Alcorn.

Why is it so hard to give? If we are honest, there are many reasons that we hold on to our possessions so tightly. Perhaps the main reason is that we actually believe that wealth will make us happy and more secure. But is that really true?

To prepare read Ecclesiastes 5:8-15 and also 1 Timothy 6:17-19. Each of these passages talk about what it means to have wealth and some of the issues it can cause.

My prayer is that the Holy Spirit will teach us in the sermons, our individual reading of The Treasure Principle, and our Wednesday night group time.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
