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.
9:30 a.m. Bible Study
10:30 a.m. Prayer & Announcements
10:50 a.m. Fellowship
11:00 a.m. Worship
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.
This week we will be discussing Lesson #4 1 Thessalonians 4:13 - 5:11. Paul has been encouraging and exhorting the Thessalonian church in their faith and discipleship to this point. He now answers 2 concerns they have regarding Christ's return. Their concerns are not unusual and not confined to their century. Believers today have those same concerns. Will those believers who have died be with Christ when He returns? Am I ready for Christ's return should He come today? Those questions run through my mind on occasion. The very first verse of our Scripture for this lesson tells us that we do not have to be ignorant about these questions and that we are not without hope so we don't have to grieve like other men. What is our Hope? This is why understanding God's Word is important.
This week Justin will be leading us in worship and Ron will be giving us God's Word from 1 Thessalonians 1: 1-10. Please come with anticipation to hear what God has to say and hearts excited to worship Him with great thanksgiving.
I look forward to hearing what the Holy Spirit has taught you in this week's lesson.
See you Sunday!
