Last Sunday we began a new series about Re-Connecting with God. We focused on the importance of “Re-Discovering the Word of God” as we examined the reforms of Josiah in II Kings 22-23.
This Sunday we will look at Genesis 3:1-7 and Romans 5:12-19 as we consider Re-Connecting with God by exploring questions pertaining to what it means to have a right relationship with God. What is “righteousness” in the Bible? How can a person who is subject to temptation and liable to sin live “righteously”? What does it mean to “get right with God”?
On Sunday evening we start a series on Introduction to the Old Testament. How was the Old Testament put together? What does the Old Testament reveal to us about God? Are we responsible for living according to all Levitical and Deuteronomic laws? During our study we will discuss the various literary types, the considerations for interpretation, and the relevancy of the Old Testament message. We will meet in Pleitz Chapel at six o’clock.
Have you visited First Cup, the new coffee shop in the ROC? First Cup is currently open Monday through Friday from 7:00 a.m. until 10:00 a.m. It’s a great place to meet your friends and neighbors for coffee, latte, cappuccino, hot tea, a smoothie, and conversation.
As we grow in faith and friendship during 2008, we are encouraging each person in our First Baptist Family to connect by….
* Actively participating in worship and a Bible study
* Getting involved in a mission and a ministry.
* Bringing a tithe and an offering.
* Building a relationship with a friend and a stranger.
There’s no better time than now to get Re-Connected!
