Fellowship to Follow

 

Come hear of opportunities to assist Westside Baptist Church in Brownsville, Texas, as they receive 100 asylum seekers per day seeking entry into the United States. Each asylum seeker is being housed at the church for a few hours, fed, given a shower, and a change of clothes. Each asylum seeker is hearing the gospel and is assisted in transportation to sponsors or family members in the United States. (These people are seeking legal asylum in the United States)

How can we help?

The theme is Redefined: Isaiah 42:9

“Behold, the former things have come to pass, and new things I now declare; before they spring forth I tell you of them.” – Isaiah 42:9

Human beings are nothing if not creatures of habit. We are drawn to routine. We expect the expected and when it doesn’t happen we get frustrated and confused.

Have you ever noticed the result of something completely disrupting our expectations? When something so out of the ordinary happens that it shatters the status quo? It’s absolute chaos. We don’t know how to respond. But when the disrupter is God, it can be a beautiful chaos.

God is the great redefiner. At the heart of what it means to know and experience God is the process of redefinition. God defines what it means to be new. God spoke a new creation into existence out of nothing, redefining our existence. Through the person and work of Christ, God made complete renewal possible for all who would come to faith in Him, redefining our reality. In the salvation offered by God, we discover a new identity, redefining who we are. And in discovering who God meant for us to always be, our purpose is redefined.

A Place Called Heaven

A Place Called Heaven

 

Kurt and Tina Goebel started a new study on Sunday, June 2.  All are invited to join the class for this 6 week study: A Place Called Heaven by Robert Jeffers.  Books are $6.50.

 

If any of us learned we were going to move to a foreign country, we’d do everything we could to learn about that place so that we’d be prepared when moving day arrived.  As Christians, we know someday we will leave our familiar country and be united with God in heaven.  And yet many of us know very little about this place called heaven.  In this Bible study, explore several surprising truths about heaven and reveal whom we see there and what we will do.  This study will give believers a clearer picture of the divine place Jesus has prepared for us.  And it will encourage us to make heaven a greater priority in our hearts and minds so that we are better prepared for it.
