New series for the new year

posted 31 Dec 2013, 04:30 by Joshua Monteiro
In January, we'll be beginning new sermon series for both morning and evening services.

In the morning services, we'll be working through Matthew's Gospel. Since Matthew covers similar material to Mark, which we looked at two years ago, the focus in this series will be on teaching and events found only in Matthew's Gospel. Some of this is famous and familiar- the Sermon on the Mount for example. Other passages may be less familiar, like Jesus paying his temple tax by finding a coin in a fish. But through Jesus teaching we are confronted with a challenge- are we building our lives on this teaching?

In the evening services, we'll be going through the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was a prophet at a time when God's people seemed to be in terminal decline, and we have much to learn from his faithful ministry and personal anguish as he spoke God's word to people who didn't want to hear it.
