Last Sunday we examined 1 Corinthians 5 and explored the significance of heeding the company we keep with discernment. Paul continues to impress upon the Corinthians that they must think biblically rather than culturally. He emphasizes, “bad company corrupts good character” (1 Corinthians 14:33 NIV). Corinth was a pagan society accustomed to rampant
Last Sunday we studied 1 Corinthians 4:14-21, where Paul illustrates the profile of a healthy church. Perceiving the church as a building with Jesus as the foundation is just one reminder that the church doesn’t belong to us, but rather, to God. However, Paul emphasizes that even though
After fourteen years serving in ministry as an assistant pastor, my husband was asked, by God, to lay down three things: his power, his position, and his paycheck, in order to follow the call of God. At first, I thought, this is easy, it’s just a test. No big deal, say yes and we’ll continue to minister just as we have for the past fourteen years. Well, that wasn’t the case. Not only did God call him to lay those things down, but required a total abandonment for His purposes. At 46 years old with no retirement, this was to say the least, very uncharted waters for us.

The Daughters of the King study was a huge success! Girls from grades K-5 learned that, as children of the King, they are little princesses. In the same way every princess needs a “Knight in Shining Armor” to ride in and save them, we all need Jesus to rescue us from our sin. Jesus is our one true Hero, and only He has the power to save us from sin and death. Jesus will be returning on His white horse to send the beast to hell (Revelation 19:17-21). Until that day, we are “Ladies in Waiting,” patiently waiting for our Hero to
Last Sunday we studied 1 Corinthians 4:1-13 and discussed the church in Corinth. Paul had planted the church 5 years earlier and writes the letter to address the rampant sin and fundamental doctrinal misconceptions prevailing in the young church. Paul delineates the role church leadership should fulfill, challenging leaders to act as both
