Winter 2014…fyi

Beginning Sunday, January 5th, our sermon series for the new year is called “Tell Me a Story: a look at the Parables of Jesus.” Giving our attention to how Jesus instructed his disciples will surely be an enriching and challenging study.

Our Shore Life Group will begin again on Tuesday, January 14th. Join us each Tuesday at 6:30pm at the McDaniel House for Bible study, fellowship, and prayer. We are beginning a new study through the various Bible passages that teach us the Names of God. You may join the study at any point.

The date for our next after-church meal is February 23rd. We’ll talk about the details as we get closer to the date.

 

As always, you can direct any feedback or questions to Pastor Kyle here.

How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments

We are in the middle of a series of sermons on the Ten Commandments found in Exodus 20:1-17. The sermons are available here if you would like to listen to them. Also, if you are interested in reading a book on the topic, you should pick up E. Clowney’s book, How Jesus Transforms the Ten Commandments. This book was is the source of the title of our series, but approaches the subject matter slightly differently than Pastor Kyle and will offer some helpful perspective as supplementary reading. Hope to see you Sunday!

Simple Relationships, Deep Belief, and Authentic Living: A study through 1 John

We took a hiatus in our Summer Teaching Series this past weekend, but we’ll return to studying through 1 John this Sunday. If you’ve missed a week, go to the SCC Sermon Archive or our YouTube Channel and you can listen to one of the first five sermons. Also, take the time to read through the book as we are studying it. You will benefit from studying on your own as well as listening to sermons through the text.

2013 Summer Teaching Series at SCC

This weekend is Memorial Day Weekend and it’s the unofficial beginning of the Summer Season. After Memorial Day, school will soon be out, vacations will be taken; we’ll hit the beach, the pool, and the park. We’ll squeeze what we can out of the outdoors while its warm! As our schedules have a way of changing frequently and becoming very busy in the summer, it’s crucial that we continue to abide in Jesus throughout this season. We want to get to September and be able to look back upon the Summer and see how God has worked in our hearts and lives. We want to see our relationships, our beliefs, and our way of living more closely resemble God’s will for us.

With this in mind, our 2013 Summer Teaching Series here at SCC will be entitled: Simple Relationships, Deep Belief, and Authentic Living: a study through The First Epistle of John. This study begins this Sunday, so invite a friend and bring your Bible and we’ll see how God is going to shape us this Summer as we seek to know him and obey him.
