Have you ever seen one of those street preachers calling out to the crowds? Their message is often filled with warnings to change your life or face judgement. While many people either laugh at, get in a shouting match with, or simply ignore them and walk past, there's no doubt about the spectacle they create.
Around the year 28 A.D. there was a similar character causing a stir near the Jordan River in Palestine. His name was John and his message was "REPENT!" It was a message for the Jewish people at that particular time, but it still speaks to us today. As we complete our first week of reading through the New Testament, we'll be considering how we can prepare our hearts for our Messiah's reign in our lives. I hope you'll be able to join us this coming Sunday, October 2nd.
Have you started reading along with us? There's still time to join us in this unique journey through the New Testament. A number of small groups have begun this week to share conversations about what we're experiencing. One small group opportunity takes place at the church on Sunday mornings prior to our Worship (8:30-9:30 AM).
There are some additional copies of "The Books of the Bible" available at church for purchase for $5. I'd also like to recommend getting the "Community Bible Experience" App for your phone, tablet, or other device. It's a free download and you can use it to watch preview videos about each day's reading, read the passage, and even listen to narration. Just search for it where you go to download apps. Another option is to text "CBE" to 66866. You'll be asked for your email address and then you can sign up to get emailed links each day for the videos and readings.
God has amazing things waiting for us in His Word! Don't miss out on this chance to experience it's Truth in a new way.
We're postponing the Membership class until later in October. If you've been wanting to learn more about membership, our church, and the Evangelical Covenant Denomination, you should plan on joining us for this interactive class. There's no requirement to become a member after taking the class, but it is a requirement for membership. Contact Pastor Jeff for more info.
