PSALMS FOR SUMMER - July 31-September 4, 2016 Print E-mail

One of the most beloved portions of the Old Testament is the Psalms.  It's no accident that for years when the New Testament is published with portions of the Old Testament, one of those portions is the Psalms - I have a Gideon Bible to prove my point!

Where do the Psalms fit into the Bible?

They're different from the books of history (eg. Genesis, I Samuel) which contain the storyline of the Old Testament.  Here we meet the key people, places and events from the past.  They're also different from the books of prophecy which offer a vision of what is to come - sometimes in the near future but more often in the distant future.

So what's in the Psalms?  The Psalms are poetic musings cast in strong emotive language.  In the Psalms we sense the feelings and faith of the people who lived out the storyline of the Old Testament.

Book III of the Psalms features authors like Asaph, the sons of Korah, and David.  These were courageous men and not only because of their national exploits.  They were courageous in their willingness to raise hard questions about the LORD's justice and apparent absence in our world.  

On August 28th, John Oostra will be teaching from Psalm 82, titled, "Here Comes the Judge!".  Few things are more satisfying than a justice. When a magistrate carefully reviews the facts of a case and renders a fair verdict, there is a sense that what needed to be done has been done. However, when judges are corrupt and turn a blind eye to the facts, accepting bribes and doing favors for friends, society groans. In Psalm 82, the Judge of the Universe serves notice to human 'judges' that they must judge righteously, aware that they will themselves one day stand before His Majesty! Do we in our capacities of rendering judgments on others, realize we are not only in authority, but also under authority? When last did we say a prayer for a judge?

Please feel welcome to join us on Sunday at 10:30AM as we worship together with singing (a mix of contemporary & traditional), prayer, expository teaching from the scriptures, and communion, all followed by fellowship over “coffee & sweets”.  In addition, on the last Sunday of the month, we also meet from 9-10AM for a service of communion, sharing and hymns.  Everyone is welcome to join us as we worship God together!

 
ATTENTION MEN! Print E-mail

A weekly men's group has begun... every Tuesday evening at the Chapel from 7- 8:30pm

If you are interested in moving forward in your Christian faith (moving slightly out of your comfort zone?), you are strongly encouraged to participate.  This will be a safe place for men of all ages to connect, discuss relevant issues, hear practical suggestions, and discover ways to live life well.  Through guided discussion, bible reading, sharing of personal experiences, and prayer, it is hoped that men will be encouraged, challenged, and inspired as followers of Jesus. 

This group is for any guy who wants to take a step closer to God, and is open to anyone who wants to come & check it out. 

If you have any questions, please feel free to call Dean Edwards, Walter Hogarth, Steward VanMale, or Bob Wing, or contact the church office. 

See you Tuesday!
