“May God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ give you grace and peace!” (1 Corinthians. 1:3)
We are still missing so many opportunities to utilize God’s “means of grace” with which He longs to bless us.
We are each making our own decisions on what to attend, and we, your church, are striving to offer you opportunities to be blessed by God’s “means of grace” together or by social media.
Through this all, however, let us never forget that Disciples of Christ do all they can to STAY IN GOD’S WORD.
(John 5:31) “If you continue in my word, then you are truly disciples of mine.”
Following Jesus means connecting consistently with His word.
Each one of us needs to make a decision to make spending time in God’s word consistent.
I encourage you to sign up for one of the Bible-reading programs or apps which are available. A particularly helpful tool is “Bible in one Year,” by Nicki Gumbel, which gives daily readings and comments which will take you through the entire Bible in a year, with teachings as well. https://www.bibleinoneyear.org/
To complete your Bible reading plan, we are offering the following resources:
*** SUMMER SERMON SERIES - At our Sunday worship services we will be teaching about the more than 8,000 “Amazing Promises of God” found in His word.

Yes, Christian Discipleship implies and involves “living in God’s word.”
This is not easy; it involves commitment and self-discipline, but with God's help and the help of your Pastor and your church, we can develop this habit in our lives and grow as disciples of Jesus.
Be “Blessed to Be a Blessing. “
