ABC Cycle: Please join us Sunday mornings at 9:30 a.m. As we continue our studies on “The Message of the New Testament” and in “Beyond Suffering”.
The Message of the New Testament is the story of how all the promises made by God in the Old Testament were kept—and what that means for us today. The nation of Israel had many hopes: hope for a deliverer, hope for restored fellowship with God, and hope for the world to be put right. The New Testament explains how those promises were kept and how, if we are Christians, they are kept in us as well. Author Mark Dever surveys the historical context, organization, and theology of each New Testament book, in light of God’s Old Testament promises. His message is that of the New Testament itself, one of hope fulfilled.
In Beyond Suffering, Layton Talbert uncovers the often-missed message of Job, tracing it sequentially and applying it to Christian living. Suffering becomes, rather than the theme itself, a catalyst for discussing the relationship between God and man. Does God really deserve unconditional service? Does He really care for His children? Writing for all readers but addressing the many difficult interpretational issues, Talbert brings the message of Job to life.
Outreach – N.E.W. Ministry: N.E.W. ministry stands for Neighbors Evangelizing by Welcoming. Thursday, March 24th we will begin our N.E.W. ministry. Beginning at 6:30 p.m. we will deliver welcome gifts to new members of the Windsor Locks and surrounding communities. This outreach is intended to show people that we care about them. If you have never done this outreach before, you are encouraged to come out and try this low-risk, non-confrontational approach to letting people know about the Lord and our church. If you would like to distribute packets at another time than the above scheduled time, please let the church office know.
