Well we are done! We have finished the journey begun last September as we collectively read through “The Story.” As you know, “The Story” is a chronological condensed Bible formatted in easy to read chapters. It began with the creation of the world and ended with a vision of the full establishment of God’s new heaven and new earth where every tear will be wiped away.
We learned that the “lower story” of the lives of Biblical characters was often messy and hard, but God was always working His “upper story” purpose out. As we sought to understand “our story” in light of our relationship with God, it was helpful to realize that God is working His “upper story” purpose in our lives as well. Like the people in the Bible, our lives are often messy and hard. We don’t always understand why things happen in our lives the way they do. However, in faith, we trust the words found in Jeremiah from God, “I know the plans I have for you; plans for your welfare and not for harm, to give you a future with hope” (Jeremiah 29:11). It is my hope that you have gained a big picture perspective of the Bible and come to a better understanding of the work of God in history and your own life.
The Presbyterian Table meets Thursday nights at 6:00 PM, reserving a table at a different restaurant each week. Anyone who wants to eat out is invited to come sit at "the Presbyterian table." This is an informal group open to all with each person being responsible for his or her own expense. We invite you to join us any week for good food, fellowship, and lots of laughter.
Several years ago, a number of people from our church took a Saturday to drive over to Madison, NC to observe the men of First Methodist Church cooking peanuts. We had tasted their peanuts and were interested in how they cooked them. Following that trip we searched for a cooker we could use to cook peanuts ourselves, but couldn't find one. We now have contracted with the Madison church to sell us peanuts wholesale.
NUTS ON A MISSION is a unique, delicious gift for your neighbor, a relative, or just for yourself! Contact the church office or Emmy Floyd to purchase. Each pint jar costs just $6.00, or pick up two jars for $10. A case of 12 jars costs $60. All proceeds will go toward missions.
I am excited to announce a new way that First Presbyterian Church can help you develop as a disciple of Jesus Christ. We have partnered with RightNow Media to make available to you a large library of free video resources. It's essentially the "Netflix of Video Bible Studies" because you will have instant access to thousands of great videos for kids, youth, parents, married couples and more. You can view these videos from your phone, tablet or computer. You can also view them in a group setting through a TV or projector. There are over 2000 videos from some great teachers including Max Lucado, Francis Chan, Bill Hybels, Andy Stanley, and more.
