In Our Prayers

Prayer Focus: This week, let’s join in Paul’s prayer asking God to help us live in such harmony with each other that we may join together in one voice in glorifying God. Pray that God’s Spirit in us will help us pursue peace and unity.

  • Jerry Davis is at home under the care of Hospice of East Texas. Visitors are welcome. Phyllis is reluctant to leave him by himself, so if you are available to sit with Jerry for a while so Phyllis can have a break to run errands, etc., that would be welcome.
  • Terry Dean is at the Center at Grande, room 347, undergoing physical therapy. Visitors are welcome.
  • Continue to pray for the preacher search and the members of the search team.

Sunday Morning Class Series

Although separated by nearly two thousand years of history, there are many similarities between the church in Corinth and the world of today. The Corinthian church was riveted by factions that threatened to tear it apart. Paul had to handle strong differences of opinion among the Christians on such topics as marriage, lawsuits, meat sacrificed to idols, worship, and Christian doctrine. Similarly, the world today—and all too often the church as well—is in danger of a terminal fragmentation, a new tribalism.

In this Sunday morning class series, discover not only the original meaning of I & II Corinthians, but also how Paul’s message can speak powerfully today. Join us Sundays at 9 a.m. in the adult classrooms. 

Wednesday Night Series
