God’s Promise to Abram

Genesis 12:1-9 We examine the promises God gave to Abram and see their profound significance. We look at him as the father of the faithful and see the benefits and blessings that have come to us through the promises made to him. Finally, we see how God kept His people

God’s Love Was So Great, He Gave Us His Son

John 3:16 Christmas comes upon us once again and we remember the wonderful love of God for His people. If love is measured by the nature of the gift, how great must God’s love be to give His infinitely precious Son for undeserving wretches? Those who don’t know Ch

God Will Preserve His People

Genesis 11:10-32 We look at the Godly line of Shem as far as Abram, noticing that the age spans decreased considerably after the flood. Why was this? The age of the earth can be calculated from this genealogy. Terah moved from Ur with his family after God spoke to Abram

Church History, Part 1

We begin a new series on the history of the church with an overview of the subject and the benefits of studying it. In future weeks, we will be viewing video tapes by John Gerstner on this subject and then discussing the contents together.

The Genealogy of the Nations

Genesis 10 We see how the peoples descended from the three sons of Noah in keeping with the curses or blessings that were pronounced upon them following their show of respect or otherwise to him in the previous chapter. We reflect on the great blessing it is to hav

The Compassion of Christ

Matthew 20:29-34 This is the account of the two blind men on the outskirts of Jericho who cry out to Jesus that they might see. We consider the story in some detail and apply it to the present day. We see that the events are a sort of visual analogy of what happens to ev
