ABF Summer Electives 2012

For the months of June and July we will be offering five different Adult Bible Fellowship electives. If you haven’t signed up yet, please do so this Sunday, May 27. Please sign-up at the Info Center or in your current ABF.

Foundations: Millions of Christians have decided that the Bible is out of date. They’ve decided that the words of Jesus aren’t always true. The Foundations—Ken Ham’s signature DVD series based on 30 years of ministry—reveals the alarming state of Christianity today. Today, possibly more than at any time in America’s history, a culture detached from God and willingly ignorant of His hand in creation and world events needs Jesus. But the church is not nearly as effective in reaching the lost as it was only a generation ago. Sessions cover: Relevance of Genesis; Revealing the Unknown God; One Blood, One Race; Defending the Faith; In Six Days; Death the Enemy.

Work Matters: connecting Sunday worship to Monday work. For some this word represents drudgery and the mundane. For others work is an idol to be served. If you find yourself anywhere on the spectrum from workaholic to weekend warrior, it’s time to bridge the gap between Sunday worship and Monday work.

This ABF outlines God’s purposes for work in a way that helps us to make the most of our vocation and to join God in his work in the world. Discover a new perspective on work that will transform your workday and make the majority of your waking hours matter, not only now, but for eternity.

Give Them Grace. All of us want to raise good kids. And we want to be good parents. But what exactly do we mean by “good?” And is “being good” really the point?

We must tell our kids of the grace-giving God who freely adopts rebels and transforms them into loving sons and daughters. If this is not the message your children hear, if you are just telling them to “be good,” then the gospel needs to transform your parenting too.

Give Them Grace is a biblical perspective on parenting that shows us how to receive the gospel afresh and give grace in abundance, helping our children know the dazzling love of Jesus and respond with heartfelt obedience.

Galatians Book Study. The apostle Paul’s letter to the believers in Galatia nurtures trust and assurance in Christ. The themes of this book continue to energize and enlighten Christians today.

When God Weeps: Why Our Suffering Matters to the Almighty (Ladies Only ABF).  If God is loving, why is there suffering? What’s the difference between permitting something and ordaining it? When suffering touches our lives, questions like these suddenly demand an answer.


Good Friday Service 2012

The Look

Sunday night we began to learn a new song. You will find the text below. Here’s a recording of the song as well.

I saw one hanging on a tree
In agony and blood
Who fixed his loving eyes on me
As near his cross I stood
And never till my dying breath
Will I forget that look
It seemed to charge me with his death
Though not a word he spoke

My conscience felt and owned the guilt
And plunged me in despair
I saw my sins his blood had spilt
And helped to nail him there
But with a second look he said
“I freely all forgive
This blood is for your ransom paid
I died that you might live”

Forever etched upon my mind
Is the look of Him who died
The Lamb I crucified
And now my life will sing the praise
Of pure atoning grace
That looked on me and
Gladly took my place

Thus while his death my sin displays
For all the world to view
Such is the mystery of grace
It seals my pardon too
With pleasing grief and mournful joy
My spirit now is filled
That I should such a life destroy
Yet live by Him I killed

The Peacemaking Church: Overcome evil with good.

Our final week of The Peacemaking Church was taught yesterday in our Adult Bible Fellowships. The key principle taught was overcome evil with good. Below are the main principles we covered:

  1. We have divine weapons (2 Cor 10.3-5).
  2. Control your tongue (Rom 12.14).
  3. Seek godly advisors—and listen to them (Rom 12.15-16)!
  4. Keep doing what is right (Rom 12.17).
  5. Recognize your limits (Rom 12.18-19)
  6. The ultimate weapon: deliberate, focused love (Rom 12.20-21).
    • protects you from your own bitterness and resentment
    • may help to bring the other person to repentance
