Come join us this Sunday as we conclude our series on Paul’s letters to the churches by looking at the well-loved book of Romans.
Paul’s letter to the Romans takes about an hour to read aloud and you are invited to read it ahead of time and pray for our time together.
After a three-minute overview of Romans, we will give particular attention to Romans 8:31-39; along with Psalm 44, which Paul quotes (“…we are regarded as sheep to be slaughtered”). Along the way we will appreciate how Paul views the Old Testament in light of Jesus; we will walk through his perspective on suffering; and we will follow Paul’s mind and heart through an emotionally-rich path to God’s steadfast love and faithfulness in Jesus.
We will pay attention to the process of crying out to God in our struggles and moving through darkness to experience the comforting and hope-filling love of God.
David Powlison writes: “The wisdom to suffer well is like manna—you must receive nourishment every day. You can’t store it up, though you do become more familiar with how to go out and find what you need for today.”
See you on Sunday!
Service times are at 9:30 & 11:00. If you can’t make it in person, you can watch live at those times.
