July 31st: Cooper Browning

July 29, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

This Sunday we will take a break from our study of 1 John and we will hear from our very own Cooper Browning.

As most of you know, God has called Cooper into full-time ministry working with Young Life in Virginia Beach. So what is Young Life? And what does his position there mean for us as a church?

Good questions. And I want you to have the answers.

I am thrilled that Cooper will share why he feels called to ministry and Young Life ministry in particular; what Young Life is all about, and some scriptural foundations for his ministry.

So come support a young man who has, literally, grown up in this church and hear a great message God has placed on his heart!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

One question that every Christian will deal with as they navigate through this life is this: Am I really a Christian?

Both external and internal circumstances can create confusion and cause each of us to question our faith and the goodness of God. But John wants us to know, beyond a shadow of a doubt, that if you have placed your faith in Jesus as the only way to be accepted by God– you are secure in the assurance of your salvation.

How does he do this? He raises a couple of questions to ponder.

To prepare for this week, read 1 John 2:3-11 and see if you can discover the two questions– or tests– of true faith.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

1 John 1:5-2:2– Walking in the Light

July 17, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: 1 John

Message: Walking in the Light

In this message, we look at 1 John 1:5-2:2 and see that John talks about light & darkness. In doing so, he also brings us face to face with the issue of sin in our lives– and the glorious solution through Jesus Christ.

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

In this letter to the church, John presents many contrasts. This week we will hear about light and darkness. There are both good and pure experiences in this life and bad and evil experiences in this life. Everyday we encounter examples of each.

But how are we to respond when it seems like the bad and evil– the darkness– seems overwhelming?

John is going to address this issue that his readers and we wrestle with on a regular basis.

To prepare read 1 John 1:5-2:2 and try to discern what John is telling his readers. This is particularly relevant in light of the recent tragedies in Dallas and Nice.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

1 John 1:1-4– God in the Flesh

July 10, 2016 by · Leave a Comment 

Series: 1 John

Message: God in the Flesh

In this message, we look at 1 John 1:1-4 and see that John begins by identifying the hero of his letter– Jesus Christ. He makes a point of declaring that Jesus was a man–that the incarnation really happend. Why is this so important? Why is this one of the foundations of the Christian faith?

Series:  1 John

This Sunday we will continue our series on the Book of 1 John.

John opens his letter by immediately talking about Jesus. We will see that Jesus– who he is and what he has done– is a major focus of John’s writing.

To prepare, read 1 John 1:1-4– and think about what John is saying and why it is important.

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
