False Claims

In the Gospel of Matthew Jesus tells us “Be ye therefore perfect, even as your Father which is in heaven is perfect.” If man is perfect, like his Father, how then can he be a sinner, or become sick and die? Could sin, sickness and death actually be false claims in man’s existence? And, could these false claims be hiding man’s true nature as God’s perfect child? Come and hear the readings on this topic at tonight’s midweek prayer meeting beginning at 6 pm.

Work out your own salvation

What does it mean to “work out your own salvation” as we read in Paul’s command to the Philippians in the Bible?  How do we go about doing this?  Are we doing this merely for our own individual benefit, or is there a greater meaning for all of humanity?  Come and hear the readings on this topic at tonight’s midweek prayer meeting beginning at 6 pm.

Pray without ceasing

What does it mean to “Pray without ceasing,” as Paul says in First Thessalonians in the Bible? Is this even possible to do? If it is possible, how does one go about it?  The readings tonight at our mid-week prayer meeting will explore this topic.  The meeting begins at 6 pm.
