Heb. 5:13-14, “Everyone who lives on milk is unskilled in the word of righteousness, since he is a child. But solid food is for the mature, for those who have their powers of discernment trained by constant practice to distinguish good from evil.”
Here in the South when we see snow coming we run to buy milk & bread. Why? Because when we see trouble coming, we know we need to stock up and prepare. Not just milk for our children, but bread – solid food for adults. In every age, every generation, people experience trouble. We are no exception. How can we be prepared? By learning and living by every word that comes from the mouth of God – the Bible.
This study will focus on the Books of I & II Corinthians. They provide solid spiritual food that will nourish and feed God’s people. Through this teaching and the training you will grow in faith, hope, and love, in wisdom, spiritual power, and discernment so that you will be prepared in every situation. Please join us Sundays at 11:00 AM or listen online on our Sermons page and get fed with solid spiritual food!
The Old Testament is filled with prophecies of the future. There are over 300 specific prophecies about Jesus. Many have to do with the circumstances surrounding the incarnation. It is amazing to read them and see how they came true. Jesus truly is “God with us.” We’re ending 2014 with this series of teachings examining the prophecies, the prophets, and the fulfillment as God came to earth to save a hurting and dying world. Please join us Sunday mornings at 11:00 AM for this special holiday series. Nursery and Children’s Ministry are provided for children up to age 10. Dress is always casual.
