On Wednesday night from 6-7pm, we have an informal gathering in the Teen Room. Recently we have been opening God’s word and seeing how He shows His plan to us, lead by Jason Mooney and Geni Fulcher.
We heartily encourage all youth to attend Sunday School at 9:30 a.m. in the teen room. The youth will be continuing their study on R.C. Sproul’s “Essential Truths of the Christian Faith” through the Spring. Together we are expounding and unpacking historical, orthodox, christian doctrines in clear and simple terms so they may be well understood and applied to day-to-day life. Through this study we hope to guide our youth toward a deeper walk of faith and kindle a lifelong love for truth, which is foundational to maturity in Christ.
Church Library News
FROM THE CHURCH LIBRARY: Come check out the new series of small books by R.C. Sproul on the crucial questions of our faith. Look at some of the titles which deal with concepts we may have wondered about or found difficult to understand: What is Predestination? What is Baptism? Why Should I Join a Church? Why is There Evil? What is the Relationship Between Church and State? …and many more. Each book is about 100 pages or less and answers the questions from a Reformed Church point of view. We have also added books that Marni McKenzie spoke about at the recent Women’s Retreat: Livestream by Ivan Filby; A Chance to Die, a biography of Amy Carmichael by Elisabeth Elliot; and The Daniel Dilemma by Chris Hodges. Look for other new books which tackle the issue of living a godly life in a worldly culture such as Beautiful Resistance by Jon Tyson and Faithfully Different by Natasha Crain.
