Welcome to October! There was a time I wasn't too sure we'd make it here. But here we are and I'm thankful to God for yet again showing His faithfulness to us. There's just a few things to remind or inform you about as we continue to ease back into some regular activities and events.
Last night - FAITHFUL
Last night we began a new series called FAITHFUL. Faithful is a journey through the book of Samuel. Our hope is to trace out the promise of hope God gave to us in Genesis 3:15. The question of HOW will be big in this series. How did God show His faithfulness to His creation? How did God work out this promise of hope? We know the story of King David is a big part of this plan. We know the thread of the offspring is a big part of the Bible. It is THE part of the Bible that ultimately finds it's home in JESUS. But for now, in Samuel, how does God work this out? I'm excited about the big picture students will get this year!
As we better understand the big picture of the Bible we also understand the intricate details of our lives. You see, as we see God weaving this thread of hope through the Bible we're able to gain confidence and trust in a God who is also ever present in our situations. Samuel presents many sticky situations, seemingly hopeless situations that we can relate to in our lives. Maybe not a physical giant.....maybe not a lack of the Word in our lives....maybe not the fact that we're barren. But you know we face some hopeless situations. Adam and Eve left creation in disarray, in a seemingly hopeless situation. But how did God respond? With a promise of hope. From the beginning until now, in the midst of an ever changing climate, God Is Faithful!
Last night we began this story in Samuel and then brought it home to us.
The sermon transcript is available below as well as the video of the night.
We had many out due to school activities and other things but we are so thankful for the many who joined us in person....that's been such an encouragement to me. Not the number per-say, but the fact that we can be together again!
Why a blog?
A great way for parents and ministry to connect and continue the conversation of what's going on at The Rock.
