The good folks that publish the ESV Study Bible have published their notes along with their translation of the book of Jonah online for free download. I would encourage you to read it to accompany our current sermon series through Jonah.
This past Sunday, Pastor Mike Steinsdoerfer from The Worship Center preached an encouraging and challenging sermon at SCC about responding to uncertainty and anxiety with prayer. I wanted to make sure everyone knew where they could listen to it. You can find it and other sermons in the Archive or go directly to his sermon on Youtube or download the MP3.
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.
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!
The ministry of Campus Crusade has made a great little article available about having a daily time with the Lord. In part of last week’s sermon, we talked about the importance of confession in our lives. This article includes that, and gives some excellent instructions about deepening our relationship with God through regular time with him. If you aren’t in the habit of spending regular time in prayer and in the scriptures, this is a quick read that might give you the tools you need to begin that discipline.
