Three months. Three months between Memorial Day and Labor Day. Three months of Summer. Three months of cookouts, vacations and hot, hot weather. Three months of respite between the rigor of the rest of the year. A time of refreshment - or so we hope!
The question is: Will we use these three months purposely?
We hope so. As our renovation is ongoing, we pray to use our Summer to scale back in order to focus more intently on Christ - to draw closer to Him and find rest in Him.
To this end, we are trying something new. For these three months, we are keeping it simple by aligning the weekly focus of our Sunday School Groups and Worship Service.
Each Sunday, both will focus on the same chapter from one of the Apostle Paul’s “Pastoral Letters.” There are thirteen chapters between these three letters and thirteen Sundays, so one chapter per week.
Together, we are praying for a purposeful summer filled with God’s presence.
So, how will you use these three months?
June 2: 1 Timothy 1
We encourage you to read this chapter before Sunday morning.
Read, Pray & Ask
As we embark on this three month journey together, we encourage you to do three things.
Read the chapter for personal study and family worship before the scheduled Sunday.
Pray and ask God to give you wisdom both for understanding and application.
Jot down questions and ask them. Pastor David, Pastor Marshall and our Sunday School leaders would love to help you.
These three recommended resources will be available to purchase at the church. You can go ahead and check them out now.
This “Pastoral Letters” Scripture Journal is a great tool to use for personal study, as well as taking notes during your Sunday School Group or our Worship Service.
This short book is a fantastic new resource both for new and seasoned Bible readers. It has a number of needed, helpful reminders to improve our times in God’s Word.
A short, but stellar work on the gospel. It provides, to quote one review, “a beautiful vision of what the church can be through the power of the gospel.”
