Friday Nights in Ferndale 05/01/09- Suffering to Serve

 idolatry

 

We hope that you would join us Friday, May 1st (holy cow, it’s May already!), at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for another evening of community, friendship, challenging Biblical teaching and discussion, prayer for one another, and an amazing cup of coffee. Dinner/coffee time begins at 6:00.

 

For our teaching/discussion time, we will be tuning into the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series from Mars Hill Church in Seattle. This week we’ll be looking at 1 Peter 4:1-11. In this video sermon, entitled “Suffering to Serve,” Pastor Mark Driscoll preaches on how it’s much easier to recognize the idols of other cultures than our own, We easily recognize that we shouldn’t give our time, treasure, and talent to a wooden statue- but we fail to see that we may worship sex, money, power, independence, or comfort. We hope to discuss our tendencies to make an idol out of pretty much anything and how looking to Jesus is our only rescue from the bondage to the good things that God has made for us to enjoy- not worship. Would you consider joining us?

 

Childcare will be available during the sermon and prayer time.

We would love for you to come join us Friday, April 24th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for an evening of friendship, community, challenging Biblical teaching and discussion, prayer for one another, and some killer coffee (Disclaimer: The coffee will not actually kill you). Dinner/coffee time begins at 6:00.

For our teaching/discussion time, we will be tuning into the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series from Mars Hill Church in Seattle. This week we’ll be looking at 1 Peter 3:18-22, one of the most difficult passages to interpret in all of the Bible. In this sermon, Pastor Mark Driscoll preaches on what we can learn from suffering, the dangers and reality of hell, and principles of interpreting scripture.

Childcare will be available during the sermon and prayer time.

Hope to see you there!

Friday Nights in Ferndale 04/18/09- Suffering To Bless

suffering

After a week off to celebrate and reflect on the death and resurrection of Jesus, Friday Nights in Ferndale is back in action! We would love for you to come join us Friday, April 18th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for an evening of friendship, community, challenging Biblical teaching and discussion, prayer for one another, and what we like to think is the best cup of coffee you’ll find anywhere around. Dinner/coffee time begins at 6:00.

For our teaching/discussion time (starting around 7:00), we will be returning the Trial: 8 Witnesses from 1&2 Peter series from Mars Hill Church in Seattle. This week we’ll be looking at 1 Peter 3:8-17 and asking the question “How should a Christian respond to suffering?” In this sermon, entitled “Suffering to Bless,” Pastor Mark Driscoll of Mars Hill Church describes 4 weights that help bring balance to the suffering of life.

Childcare will be available during the sermon and prayer time.

Good Friday 2009

crucifixion

“God shows his love for us in that while we were still sinners, Christ died for us.” Romans 5:8

 

Good Friday is the day that Christians around the world remember the day that Jesus was crucified on a cross. It is a time for somber reflection on the death of Jesus Christ, our sin, and the deep love that God has for us in sending His Son to die for us. We are cancelling Friday Nights in Ferndale this week to remember Good Friday. Many local churches will be having Good Friday services throughout the day and we would encourage you to attend one of them. Some of the Friday Night crew will be helping out at the Good Friday service at Centerpointe Community Church , located at 587 Gatliff Ave, Eureka CA 95503. The service begins at 7:00 pm and will last about one hour. You are welcome to attend, whether you are a Christian or not. For those who are wondering, Centerpointe will be providing child care.

Mars Hill Church in Seattle will also be live webcasting their Good Friday and Easter services. Visit their site for more information.

Friday Nights in Ferndale 04/03/09

Hello friends!

We would love for you to come join us Friday, April 3rd, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for an evening of friendship, community, challenging Biblical teaching and discussion, prayer for one another, and the best cup of coffee you’ll find anywhere around. Dinner/coffee time begins at 6:00. 

For our teaching/discussion time, we will be watching a video of a sermon by a South African pastor named PJ Smyth . This talk was given at the Acts 29 church planting bootcamp that Martin and I attended last month and I am excited to be able to watch and discuss it with you.The topic is “The Call to Proclaim The Gospel.” Though this talk was given to a group of church planters and pastors, I think it will be really beneficial to us all.

Childcare will be available during the sermon and prayer time.

Hope to see you there!
