Coming up on Sunday mornings, we’ll be looking at the book of Amos. It’s a book of the Bible that will give us a big picture of who God is and how he must respond to us in our sinful nature. That will then drive us to the wonder of forgiveness secured for us in Jesus!
Having completed an overview series of the book of Genesis a year ago, it’s time to revisit the book in a bit more detail. So we’re taking on the first 11 chapters of the book with the title, Origins: World. As we do so, we’ll be exploring what it is that makes us humans in our world, especially in relation to God, and why the rest of the Bible exists. So it’s pretty essential stuff! Here’s the plan:
With the end of Summer and our usual jaunt into the Psalms, we have two new preaching series to look forward to. In the mornings at 11am for three weeks we’re looking at what it means to live a well-rounded Christian life. In this we’ll be drawing out our three directional values.
The Great Command
The New Command
The Great Commission
Then in the evenings, we’ll be taking a long run at the book of 2 Corinthians as we unravel how strength of faith arises out of the weaknesses we experience, about how God accomplishes great things through our powerlessness, through the gospel.
We’re delighted to announce that Brian Whittaker will be joining us in September as our Assistant Minister. He’ll be joined by his wife, Becca, and their two children. Brian will be with us for a 2-4 year period and will be involved in all kinds of areas of church life to give him a broad experience and training. He is just finishing up his training at Oak Hill, and before that was working for UCCF in the South West.
