A Time to be Silent
Ecclesiastes 3:1-8
There's a quip (or maybe a proverb?) that goes like this: "It's better to be silent and thought a fool than to open your mouth and remove all doubt." People have attributed the quote to Mark Twain, Abraham Lincoln, and several others. Whoever said it first probably has infringed on God's intellectual property. Proverbs 17:28 says "Even a fool who keeps silent is considered wise; when he closes his lips, he is deemed intelligent." In an age of oversharing - we will take a look at the Biblical counsel about when NOT to talk.

    The Big Picture of Small Groups
    Acts 20:17-24

    The earliest records of church life reveal that a dynamic faith was spreading across the world because of the power of the Holy Spirit and the connections that began to exist among believers. These connections were established as believers met in public and from house to house. Churches today that practice this approach to church life have had significant growth and have found themselves fulfilling the mission of God in ways they did not think possible.

    What Brings Value to Life?
    Psalm 8

    Being able to process death requires an understanding of the purpose of life. Tonight will be the beginning of a discussion about Life, Death and Beyond. What comes after this life? How does that affect my daily life? Why am I here? These questions and others will be addressed over the next several Sunday Evenings in a set of lessons that deal with why we came into this world.

    A Place to S.H.A.R.E. Life
    Acts 2:41-47

    The dream that God had for humanity, to be a community of people who lived out His image in their daily lives has been fulfilled in the Church. The earliest description of the church shows the pattern and practice that remedied the disconnect caused by sin. In the church we see a new humanity connected by a common event and called to a common purpose.

    Turn Your Heart
    Malachi 3:13-4:6
    Malachi prophecies a final message to God’s people in Israel. In many ways, it called their attention away from their current problems to the future solution. In this last section of his book, Malachi tells the faithful to be patient and watch for God’s movement in history. It will be heralded by someone in the mold of Elijah. This would be humanities’ last chance.

    A Tale of Two Brothers
    Luke 15:11-24
    With all my heart I believe that grace is better understood in the context of a relationship than it is as a classroom topic. Grace is experienced. This morning we will take a look at the parable of the lost son, his return to the Father, and the very messy ways that believers love/hate the grace of God.

    Grace Has a Name
    John 1:14-17

    Grace abounds in the New Testament. It's given lots of air time all over the epistles, but the idea of God's grace - His favor towards mankind - is really captured in Jesus. Jesus' mission on earth was the central act of grace. God taking action on our behalf, God sacrificing of himself, God in the flesh; grace has a name - it's Jesus.

    Collateral Damage, Collateral Benefit

    Malachi 3:7-12

    This section of Malachi begins with two statements that seem at first to be unrelated. They are related in that God calling His people to return, leads to the other statement; bring all of what God deserves from my life. When we give to God what is His due, we demonstrate our faithfulness, we are blessed by God, and others are blessed by the collateral result of my faith.

    God’s Character
    Psalm 103:1-14

    In many circles, Grace is only a doctrine. An object with a specific function in our salvation - so we parse the word and dissect it. We teach at length about how to obtain grace, the function of grace, and even the great peril of living without grace. In many cases, we can discuss the role of motor oil in much the same ways we talk about grace, but grace is not merely and object or a thing. It is a necessary, core part of the character of God. Grace is the goodness of God that reaches us in tangible ways.
