August 18th News

This Sunday we are continuing our study of the Book of Nehemiah…

Last week in Nehemiah 5, we saw that Nehemiah and the people of Jerusalem had to deal with internal opposition. This is often more painful and challenging than external opposition because we are often caught by surprise when the opposition comes from those closest to us.

We also looked at 4 questions from Nehemiah 5:

1) Where is the opposition coming from?

2) What are the problems this opposition creates?

3) According the Nehemiah, what is the root of these problems?

4) According to Nehemiah, what is the result of these problems?

This week we will focus on the last 2 questions. Read Nehemiah 5 and see if you can find the answer. I’ll give you a hint: the answer to questions 3 & 4 is found in a single verse.

Also, I want to thank everyone who was able to attend the first official “Church Meeting” of Grace Family Fellowship last night. God has been building, guiding, and directing us for the last seven years and he will continue to do so now and in the future. He is faithful to complete the work he has started in the church!

Looking forward to Sunday!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug

August 11th News

This Sunday we are continuing our study of the Book of Nehemiah by looking at Nehemiah chapter 5.

We have seen that Nehemiah and his country men have faced great opposition in the rebuilding of the walls of Jerusalem. Last week we saw how Nehemiah adjusted his original plan to  meet this opposition– and we must be ready to adjust our plans as well.

In Nehemiah 5, we see some more opposition that Nehemiah must face. As you read this chapter, be thinking about these questions:

1) Where is the opposition coming from?

2) What are the problems this opposition creates?

3) According the Nehemiah, what is the root of these problems?

4) According to Nehemiah, what is the result of these problems?

We will see that Nehemiah 5 is very much like many of the issues and challenges in our lives– and, hopefully, we will see that these challenges can be overcome with the next brick Nehemiah hands us.

Also– we will have a GRACE FAMILY FELLOWSHIP CHURCH MEETING this Wednesday, August 14th in the Fellowship Hall of Hilltop Community Church. I would like everyone who calls this church “home” to attend to discuss our goals as a church and evaluate how we are doing in meeting those goals. This is a time for all of us to prayerfully consider where God is leading us.

Looking forward to Sunday (and Wednesday)!

 

Grace and peace,

Doug
