Jesus Loves Me, This I Know

IMG_3597This week’s fun sermon sees Bob talking about various perceptions of Jesus, and how it matters where we get our truth.  Bob builds from the words of the song, ‘Jesus loves me, this I know’, and walks us forward through the centuries talking about the changes that history has placed upon our known truth in those periods.

With all these versions of truth, all these versions of Jesus that have risen from these changing truths, why, therefore, does bible study matter?

To find out the answer to this question, listen and enjoy this week’s podcast at the link below the Read More button below.

Financial Peace is nearly upon us

DaveRamsey_PhotoYes folks, Dave Ramsey’s Financial Peace University is nearly upon us, but there is still time to sign up on the Dave Ramsey web site and get your membership kits delivered before the class starts.  So if you’re planning to join us on March 19th, please sign up as soon as you can.

Financial Peace University is a bible based 9 week course that teaches you how to handle money God’s way.  Using a series of seven ‘Baby Steps’ it takes you from saving, to paying off debt, building wealth for retirement, investing and being able to give generously along the way.  As we already know, everything belongs to God, including our money.  Financial peace teaches us how to be better stewards of God’s money and how to prosper and help others along the way.

As Dave says, “this changes everything”, and it’s so very true.  Just ask anyone who has been through Financial Peace and applied the principals it teaches. It costs $102.30 to buy your membership kit and have it shipped from the Ramsey Solutions HQ in Nashville, TN.  If you need a little  financial help, some of your Brothers and Sisters at this church have shown their love by pledging money for partial and full scholarships.  Contact Nancy or Fran at the Church office to get on the scholarship list.  At this time there are still some scholarships available: but we need to know all those who need help before 3/12/2017 or we will not have time to get your kit ordered before class starts. So hurry to avoid disappointment.

 

When ‘as you wish’ is hard

ScreenShot_001In this weeks message, Bob covers a number of topics including the dilemma this year for Irish Catholics when the great traditions of Lent and St. Patrick’s day collide.  During Lent they cannot eat meat on Fridays, but this is in conflict with the tradition of eating corned beef and cabbage on St. Patrick’s day which this year falls on Friday 17th March.  Listen to learn how some of the Bishops have crafted a workaround for this conundrum.

He Bob moves on to the story of Jesus at Gethsemane and we learn from His experience about the suffering He endured in His last hours before His body is nailed upon a cross to redeem us from our sins.
