Dear Friends Pursuing Christ,
Are you ready for 945? Not sure what 945 is? Then join us for worship and keep your eyes peeled on Facebook or our website!
As we begin the New Year I would like to encourage you to find a Bible reading plan. It might be reading and reflecting on a verse a day, reading through the Bible in a Year plan, being part of 945 (that’s a clue), or joining Friday’s 7 p.m. small group at the Gurnett’s. If you’d like to join the Friday night group we will be studying Henrietta Mear’s, What the Bible is All About. Whatever you think you can do, go for it. You will be greatly blessed as you listen to what God has to say to you.
Billy Graham’s forward in What the Bible is All About:
Our faith is not dependent upon human knowledge and scientific advance but upon the unmistakable message of the Word of God.
The Bible has a great tradition and a magnificent heritage. It contains 66 books written over a period of several hundred years by many different men. Yet, the message, divinely inspired by the Holy Spirit, is clear throughout. The 66 books become one.
The Bible is old, yet it is ever new. It is the most modern book in the world today. There is a false notion that a book as ancient as the Bible cannot speak to modern needs…It is in the Holy Scriptures that we find answers to life’s ultimate questions: Where did I come from? Why am I here? Where am I going? What is the purpose of my existence?
One of the greatest needs in the Church today is to come back to the Scriptures as the basic authority and to study them prayerfully in dependence of the Holy Spirit. When we read God’s Word, we fill our hearts with His words, and God is speaking to us.
Let me tell you a secret. What you put into your study will result in what you get out of it. Nothing of great value is ever accomplished without consistent effort invested on our part. That is true in life, particularly in relationships. Remember being a Christian is all about having a relationship with the Living God.
Plans are available on Facebook or in written form at the Church. Go for it.
Blessings and love in Jesus,
