February 2020 Q&A Series

Our February series is "Q&A" - questions that we often get asked, and faithful answers. We have some special guest preachers. Come and be blessed!

 

Sunday, February 2
Message: "We Got Questions" - Park Hunter
Scripture: Job 23:1-7
Special Music: Chancel Choir
God Moment: Soup Supper Scholarship presentation

Humans have lots of questions. Did Adam & Eve have bellybuttons? What's the point of mosquitoes? Why do bad things happen to good people? Like Job, we take our case to God. Like Job, we need to have some humility about what is knowable and what isn't.

 

Sunday, February 9
Message: "What Is My Purpose?" - Paul Bratsch
Scripture: John 17:20-23
Special Music: Noteworthy Bell Choir
God Moment: Q&A with church staff

The biblical book of Ecclesiastes begins with the proclamation, "Meaningless! Everything is meaningless!" Other parts of the Bible would like to differ. What does it all boil down to? Just what is this life all about?

 

Sunday, February 16
Message: "What Does It Mean to Be Tempted" - Barb Kell
Scripture: Matthew 4:1-11
Special Music: Chancel Choir
God Moment: "Faithful Shift," Paul Bratsch

 

Sunday, February 23
Message: "Does Science Replace Faith?" - Park Hunter
Scripture: Job 38:4-11
Special Music: Chancel Choir
God Moment: Summer Camp testimony

Some say that science is opposed to faith. Science can't explain away God, but science can help us marvel at God's creation.
