Service Times



Highlights

  • The Uncomfortable Dinner Invitation: Luke 11:37-54
    After a short break, we will return to our study of the book of Luke this week.
    Jesus came as God in the flesh to build His kingdom. However, He was rejected by the religious leaders because He wasn't what they were expecting. They accused Him of serving the Devil. In our passage this week, Jesus once again rebukes the Pharisees of their hypocrisy. The problem with the Pharisees religion was that it was a bunch of man-made rules that they required everyone to follow & judged those, including Jesus, who didn't. They were focused on the external following of rules, but not on an internal faith in God.

    Our ABF/Sunday School classes are meeting at 9:30 am. Children's church is also meeting again during the sermon time. Please use your best judgment on whether or not you or your family should attend.  We will continue to live-stream the worship service at blairridge.org as well.

  • Book Corner: Parenting with Words of Grace by William P. Smith
    Many parents think too little of the words they use with their children. They see words as a means to an end, ignoring the relational dimension. Exploring how words are a means by which children grow to trust their parents, this book offers practical wisdom in the form of short chapters with real-world examples to guide parents into meaningful conversations with their children - reflecting God's own words to Christians as his children. Through consistent encouragement, loving correction, and careful confrontation, parents can use everyday moments to speak to their children in ways that represent God's heart.
  • Missionary of the Month: Wordsower International
    Wordsower Int'l is a small ministry of compassion that has grown from the Spirit's conviction that love must matter of word, or talk, but must show itself in action and they are dedicated to meeting the needs of the least of Jesus' brethren.
    They operate several orphanages & are also involved in widow care & church planting in a number of countries (Liberia, Ghana, Kenya, Sierra Leone, Côte d'Ivoire, Haiti, India, & Nepal).
