The evening worship service is at 5:30 pm. We’ll take the remaining summer Sunday evenings and examine the Pastoral Epistle, Titus. This week, we’ll begin a three part series on church office. It naturally flows here with the passage. The second part will be about deacons and the third part church office in general. Please make every effort to attend as September is officer nomination month.
Adult Sunday School: We have begun an important study in the Book of 1 Corinthians. The Apostle Paul’s first letter to the Corinthians covers a wide and diverse set of topics. In the first half of the letter, he sets about to correct some erroneous views and practices in the church, especially divisions. The latter part of the letter is a series of answers to questions posed by the church (usually beginning, “Now concerning...”). Chapter 15 has the deepest treatment of the believer’s resurrection anywhere in Scripture. Join us as we journey deep into a letter that gets only scant attention in the Reformed world.
This week the Wednesday home group and study will meet at the Dennys’ house (7604 Tanglewood Ln. West Chester) at 7 pm. Sharing in one another’s lives is a key element to showing love to the brethren. The session’s hope is that all will participate in our home group ministry this summer. Our study is The Enemy Within by Kris Lundgaard. Read chapter 7. If you don’t have the book, you’re still welcome to participate.
Please note the following schedule changes for August and September:
Pastor Chris will be away on Sunday, August 4. The elders will lead the adult Sunday school, the Rev. Bill Warren will preach at the morning service, and the evening service will be a prayer meeting. The Wednesday study is canceled for Wednesday, August 7. The fellowship dinner is postponed one week.
Our next fellowship lunch is Sunday, August 11 after the morning service. The food theme is ribs - pick a favorite barbecue style or bring the typical side dishes. The fellowship lunch Sunday is always a great opportunity to invite a friend.
The August 11 evening worship service will be at 2 pm.
The Session meets on Thursday, August 22 at 6:30 pm.
Looking ahead to September...we will have two fellowship meals; the first on September 1 and the second on September 22. The second meal will be with special guests from Ireland.
