New Series, "Growing in Christ"

“Growing in Christ” Church-Wide Emphasis
To “assure” is to “put beyond all doubt.” “Growing in Christ,” lessons on assurance and Christian living is a study designed to help you put beyond all doubt some basic promises that the Lord has made to all Christians. You become convinced of the reality of these promises in your life as you study, memorize and apply Scripture in your everyday life.

I hope you will plan to join us each week of this Sunday morning Church-wide emphasis. All of our Sunday morning small groups will be studying the same theme each week which will also be reinforced in our Sunday morning worship services. If you do not currently attend a Sunday morning Bible study, now would be a great time to get connected. Copies of the book, “Growing in Christ” and a list of small groups may be picked up at the Connection Center.

Here’s the Sunday morning schedule of Bible studies and messages for the month of March:

            4          Assurance of Salvation, 1 John 5:11-12

            11       Assurance of Answered Prayer, John 16:24

            18       Assurance of Victory, 1 Corinthians 10:13

            25       Assurance of Forgiveness, 1 John 1:9
