A Covenant Order of Evangelical Presbyterians
We believe the main reason the church exists is to learn about Christ so that we can proclaim Him to the world. Therefore, bible study is an essential part of our church.
We are also called to worship Christ with joy and build each other up in fellowship and service. Being apart of the church body is living life in a community that helps each other thrive.
Rev. Dr. Ron Scates serves as our supply pastor.
We continue to search for the person God is preparing to take over as permanent pastor of our church.
In his retirement, Ron is sharing his gift of ministry and leadership while also supporting church planting in Jakarta, Indonesia throughout the year.
I realize that this is coming much earlier than normal but we are about to leave for a visit to my sister. We will begin our study in Colossians this Sunday July 14th. Pete will be leading the first discussion which will revolve around questions that deal with the major themes of the letter. There are thoughts as to why the letter was written varying from a battle against Judiazers to Gnosticism. The bottom line is that Paul is once again fighting false teaching within the church. Does this sound familiar to what we discussed in our study of Galatians? Do we see this problem in the church today? We can never rest in our defense of the Gospel and we can never quit growing in our understanding of God's Word or we will be just like the churches in Galatia and Colossae.
I pray that each of you will come and join in our study of Colossians and that the Holy Spirit will impart an overwhelming desire and hunger for the truth of God's Word!
See you in 2 weeks and may God bless you richly.
