A Father of Discipline
Hebrews 12:5-11
If you've been at home on Wednesdays, you've missed some great classes! Our parenting class has spent a good amount of time discussing how discipline is a much broader idea than just bad consequences. This morning we will explore this idea - that God uses adversity, to create in us, children of greater discipline and character. We’ll even have some suggestions about how to develop discipline inside your own children and your own life.

    Q&A: Why do the Baptists teach that you do not have to be baptized in order to be saved?
    Acts 22:16
    Tonight we will take a look at some of the reasons why Baptists have historically taught this. Notice this is a moving target. While some churches of Christ are softening on their position on baptism, several community churches and Baptist churches are now teaching the essential role for baptism in salvation. Tonight we will hit on the major reasons why churches have objected, and contrast that with several key texts on baptism.

    A Fearful Family
    Deuteronomy 4:6-10
    Parenting with purpose is hard. We have lists, really life hacks, about how to be a good parent. We troubleshoot sleeping issues, bullying, body image, discipline, etc... and yet, most parenting material doesn't actually deal with the core issues that matter most. Parenting without a purpose (a goal) is honestly a pointless thing. Biblical parenting, at it's core, is not about discipline, sleep schedules, food sensitivities, or any other nonsense the bestseller's list will tell you. Biblical parenting begins and ends with instructing our children to honor and revere God.

    Q&A: How Do We Know Revelation Belongs in the New Testament – Part B
    Last week we looked at the broad picture: the concept of inspiration, and the internal support for New Testament inspiration, along with a 'big picture' on canonization. Tonight, we will zoom in on two books: Revelation, which is typically accepted as inspired, and the Gospel of Thomas which though recently discovered, has been typically rejected.

    And So We Came To Rome
    Acts 28:14-27
    Accomplishments in the Kingdom of God are significant. People once separated from God and from one another, join together and become salt and light in a world of decay and confusion. We know what it is to be lost and found. The Apostle Paul’s ministry led him to Rome. Would this trip mark the end of his work; would he go down in defeat? Or was this the beginning of something new?

    Q&A: How Do We Know Revelation Belongs in the New Testament – Part A
    This belongs to a bigger question that I often get asked - the process of canonization. Which books belong in the "New Testament Canon." Sometimes it's asked, "How do we know which books are inspired?" Tonight we will spend some time unpacking the idea of canonization. And Revelation.

    Q&A: First Century Church Communion
    We will begin an evening series answering your Bible questions. Tonight we will tackle the following question: Why did the first century church use wine for the Lord’s Supper but we use Welch’s or whatever is on sale? This is a great question! And I learned a few things preparing to answer it!

    Increase Our Faith
    Luke 17:1-10
    We know a good thing when we see it. We know a good person when we meet them. We know a good deal when it is offered to us. We just don’t always know how to model what is good. Jesus tells His disciples that what you seek you will imitate.

    Alien Chronicles
    1 Peter 2:1-12
     

    Jesus never promised us a rose garden. In fact, He told us to be ready for harsh treatment from those outside the church. He, in His great prayer recorded in John 17, recognized that we are in the world, but we should not be of it. We should not fit in. We are from another realm and we are temporary in this world.
