Highlights

  • Scripture Preparation for Sunday's Message
    Read II Corinthians 5:1-10 in preparation for Sunday's message.
  • The Judgment Seat of Christ: II Corinthians 5:1-10
    Judgment is an uncomfortable topic. People don't want to be judged. However, God's judgment is a good thing because He is a just judge. This week we will be looking more at the Bema seat judgment. This is different from the Great White Throne judgment and it is only for believers. This judgment is a time of accounting and a time to receive according to our stewardship of the life God has given us. Since we all must appear and give an account, let the Bema seat judgment be motivation for us to govern our resources well!
  • Book Corner: The Exemplary Husband by Stuart Scott
    The Exemplary Husband is a biblical blueprint for the mandate God has given to husbands in the covenant of marriage to love their wives, even as Christ loved the church. Written to be a companion book to The Excellent Wife by Martha Peace, its goal is to assist husbands toward purposeful and lasting Christ-likeness for the glory of God. It is suitable for men's small group Bible studies, or for couples prayerfully seeking God's very best in marriage.
  • Missionary of the Month: Elva Craig
