You may notice that our Sunday evening worship schedule is a little different. We try to use Sunday afternoons and evenings to encourage spiritual growth both in and out of worship. We aim to do this through further Bible study, community outreach, and personal or family devotionals.
We have set aside the first and third Sunday evenings at 5 P.M. for a time of deeper study of the Sunday morning sermon. We use a more relaxed devotional-style setting where we discuss that day’s sermon topic and how to apply it to our lives.
On the second and fourth Sunday evenings of the month we aim to directly reach out to the community, especially to our neighbors in Benbrook. Sometimes our outreach efforts will be recurring from month to month, and at times they will vary.
For months with a fifth Sunday we don’t meet in the evening. Rather we want to focus on personal Bible study or working on our closeness as individual families. We encourage parents and family leaders to lead their families in home study. Our goal is that this will be one tool for developing Christian leaders.
We seek godly, Christian men to be our leaders. We want to support leadership and Bible study in the home. Christian dads have the ultimate responsibility to teach their children spiritually.
“Fathers do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up in the discipline and instruction of the Lord,” (Ephesians 6:4, NASU). The New Testament looks to the home as a demonstration of a man’s ability to lead the church. “He must be one who manages his own household well, keeping his children under control with all dignity (but if a man does not know how to manage his own household, how will he take care of the church of God?) . . . “ (1 Timothy 3:4-5, NASU).
We would love to have you as our guest in our Sunday or Wednesday Bible classes and worship. But we also invite you to be with us as we serve together in the community. Our desire is to help every Christian be strengthened in their faith and love.
