February 16th, 2018 - Preparing for the Lord's Day and Bulletin

Preparing for the Lord's Day To represent one’s country in the Olympics is one of the greatest honors an athlete can achieve. This week, many of us have watched as competitors in skiing, skating and other winter sports have sought to win gold, not just for themselves, but for their country. While only one person wins the cross-country skiing event, the achievement i...

Preparing for the Lord's Day Numbers chapter 7 can read a bit like a year-end giving receipt; repetitive details of who gave what to whom. Over the past few weeks we have received an accounting of all the charitable gifts that we have given in 2017 so that we can claim them as deductions. Yet more than a tax deduction, these year-end statements are a good witness of our a...

Preparing for the Lord's Day It may be the one passage of Numbers that you have memorized.

We have all experienced entropy. Order naturally devolves into disorder. It happens all around us every day. Rooms don’t stay clean. Gardens don’t stay maintained. Laundry never comes out of the dryer folded. When we leave things to themselves they quickly fall into chaos. In Chapters 1-4 of Numbers, the Lord has taken great pains to ensure that the people of I...

The opening chapters of the book of Numbers can seem like just that, a list of names and numbers. To the casual reader, there does not appear to be much encouragement or direction for our faith in Christ. Nevertheless, as we study these chapters, we will find that they clearly point us to the work of Christ on behalf of God’s people. We will continue our study of Num...

This Sunday, we begin our new sermon series, Numbers: The Journey Home. Over the next year, we will join Israel on their long and often winding journey from the base of Mount Sinai to their new home in the promised land of Canaan. This journey is not for the faint of heart. There will be setbacks and disappointments. There will be rebellion and punishment. Yet in the midst...
