It's a Family Gathering service! Our kids help us learn how complaining is not what God wants from His people!
What comes to mind when you hear the words, "The 10 Commandments"? Stone tablets, lightning bolts from heaven, a smoking mountain, Charlton Heston? A lot of things come to mind, right? Some good, some bad. But, whatever you think about them, the 10 Commandments are important, and God wants us to know why He gave them and how they might apply to us today. Pastor Scott continues in the series entitled "The Story."
As we continue to move through The Story found in the Bible, Adam Farmer draws our attention to important truths and lessons we can learn from the experiences of God's people when they were delivered from slavery in Egypt. God was faithful to keep His promises then, and He will be faithful to keep them now!
Pastor Tim Snyder, the Pastor of Discipleship & Worship Ministries at Riverdale Baptist nearby, brings the message today. It's entitled, "Why I Can Face The Future With Faith."
In today's message, we find God choosing a very unlikely couple to through which He will build a nation of people to call His own. It's proof that God doesn't always choose the most talented or qualified people to carry out His plans. He chooses people who are willing to trust Him to sometimes do the impossible in and through our lives!
Today, we began our journey through "The Story"! We started at the very beginning - at creation - where we find Adam & Eve living in a garden paradise. "What could go wrong", you ask? Well, a whole lot, as Pastor Scott teaches us in today's message entitled "The Beginning of Life As We Know It." Good thing this is the first chapter and not the last, as we learn that God was not willing to let mankind continue to go down the path toward death and eternal punishment. In today's message, we see the first signs of hope for the human race!
Pastor Scott sets the stage for the 2019 theme that we will be focusing on this year. The message title today is: "Engaging the Story." Over the course of 31 weeks, we'll be working through a study called "The Story". The great thing about The Story is that all ages will be studying the same sections of the Bible each week. We are hoping to encourage more interaction about the Bible between people of all ages while at church, and at home. It should be a lot of fun, so buckle up and join in! Please contact our church office if you would like to order any of the age related resources that will help make your study more enjoyable.
Pastor Scott shares vision and strategy for the ministry of South Baptist Church for 2019 and beyond. The vision and strategy are designed to help us accomplish the mission of our church: To reach people who are far from God, and grow up those who are in Christ!
