“My comfort in my suffering is this: Your promise preserves my life.” (Psalm 119:50)

Dave, a widower, is working himself to death. Late nights doing paperwork and running on fumes is the norm. Bills are piling by the week, and foreclosure looms on the horizon. Blaming God for his wife’s death, he ends his relationship with the church.

His son, Steven, has been watching with great concern. Along with his grandpa and best friend Maggie, Steven works to reach his father in any way he can. Despite his grieving, Dave begins to move in the right direction seeking an answer to the question that has been haunting him since his wife’s death…WHY?

Standing Firm is a story of suffering, God’s purpose in it, and being joyful despite it.

Just For Fun!

Tuesday Morning Men’s Bible Study

NEW The Attributes of God!!! Tuesday’s at 6:15 am (Early Birds)

Who Does God Say That He Is?

Misconceptions about God abound. But they don’t have to. God has revealed His character in Scripture, illuminating the attributes that define Him. While we, being finite creatures, can never truly comprehend everything that God is, we should study what He Himself has said.

In this 16-part teaching series, The Attributes of God, Ligonier Teaching Fellow Dr. Steven Lawson articulates a biblical understanding of divine attributes and explores how a right understanding of God can affect every aspect of our lives.

 

Angels - Who They Are and How They Help Study GuideLadies Bible Study every Tuesday Morning! New Study Begins September 2nd!

Join Joyce Mancke and a host of ladies for “Angels” By David Jeremiah Tuesday Mornings at 10:30 am! People have long been fascinated by stories of angel sightings, yet many contemporary beliefs about angels are based on misconception and myth. In Angels, Dr. David Jeremiah uses Scripture to unveil the remarkable truth about these agents of heaven and their role and work in our world. Dr. Jeremiah’s book will capture the attention of readers of all ages who seek a broad and thorough survey of Scripture that clearly separates fact from fiction as it relates to angels. Answers these questions: What are angels? What is their role in God’s plan? Are they present? Do they appear? Do they give us personal insight? All ladies of all ages are welcome to attend. For more information contact the church office at 217-523-7731
