We begin a new sermon series on Sunday, September 15, “The
Gospel of John: Witnesses to the Son of God.”
The most significant fact in history can be summed up in four words: Jesus Christ is God! When the apostle John sat down to write his Gospel, he was not interested simply in adding one more biography of Jesus to the three already in existence. John wrote his book with a very specific purpose in mind. A purpose that shows us why faith in Christ is the key essential to knowing God and living with joy now and forever.
We will begin our series by opening up John’s great purpose statement and we will set the course for our look at the uniqueness of Jesus and the amazing, life transforming mission he carried out.
We will be using Faithweaver Now for our children ages Pre-K through high school. This curriculum will walk our students through the Bible, encouraging them along the way with daily Bible challenges to work on throughout the week.
We will be using a classic book that looks at God’s self-revelation, Knowing God by J.I. Packer.
In the preface to his book, Packer writes: “The first thing to ask of the Scripture is not what it tells me about myself, but what it says about my God.” This study, which is drenched in Scripture, starts with helping us to see the vital connection between knowing about God and knowing God. After this we will be going into some deep waters as we look at attributes of God, what God shows us about himself. Then, in the final part of our study, we will see the incredible relationship with God that Christ has made possible.I hope you will join us for this journey! Pastor Bob
