Paul’s Letter to the Colossians is one of the shorter books of the Bible, but it may also be the most relevant to the Church in the World today. As our nation and world become more confusing and dangerous it is important that we know where to put our faith and our confidence, and how to live lives that are full of hope and love rather than gloom or despair. The center of it all is Jesus. He is everything. Please join us at 11:00 AM on Sunday morning to learn more. Nursery and Childrens Ministry are provided for infants to age 14. Dress is casual.
This Summer we’ve been learning some of the lessons from the Minor Prophets of the Old Testament that have application for our lives today. Having completed our study of Habakkuk, we’re moving on to the Book of Daniel. This is one of the most compelling stories of the Bible and it has a lot to say to us about how we are to live as Christians in our city, nation, and world. Come and see what you can learn from the story of Daniel Sunday at 11:00 AM. Dress is always casual.
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.
