OUTDOOR BIBLE STUDY AND ICE CREAM SOCIAL- On Sunday Evening, August 13, we invite you to come and have Bible Study with us outside at the church. Following the study we will be having ice cream and fixings. The church will provide the ice cream and you are invited to bring toppings, cookies, brownies, and other treats to go with it.
PICTORIAL DIRECTORY- We are hoping to produce a pictorial directory this fall. Our first step is getting a ministry team together to help work on it. If you are interested than please see Loren.
This month we will be studying the book of Colossians. The church at Colosse was founded by Epaphras who was a coworker of the Apostle Paul. He also established the church at Laodicea and Hieropolis. But false teachings infiltrated the Colosse church with Greek philosophy, Gnosticism, Jewish traditions and legalism, and practices and worship from other religions. Paul systematically battles these false teachings with his writings from prison in Rome.
The idea of false teachings and doctrines coming into the church may seem distant to us today. But the threat is very real. New ideas and false assumptions assault us everyday. Televangelist and false teachers diminish the concept and consequences of sin and by doing so diminish what Jesus did on the cross for you and I. Cults pray off people who are dissatisfied with the church. We need to stand firm on the gospel of Jesus Christ. We need to teach, train, and disciple with the idea of giving our people the tools to defend the faith. The book of Colossians gives us instructions on doing just that and for living according to the faith in Jesus Christ our Lord.
