suffering-christ-7

 

 

Hello friends!

 

We hope that you can join us Friday, May 8th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for another evening of community, friendship, challenging Biblical teaching and discussion, prayer for one another, and one swell cup of coffee. Dinner/coffee time begins at 6:00.

 

For our teaching/discussion time, we will once again 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 4:12-19. which is the culmination of Peter’s teachings regarding suffering as a magnificent opportunity to grow as a worshiper of Jesus Christ. In this video sermon, entitled “Suffering to Worship,” Pastor Mark Driscoll tells us that trials come in many shapes and sizes—but they are not all the same. Some suffer like Jesus and have their faith tested and proven. Others suffer because they’ve sinned and they are just seeing the fruit of their wrong doing.

Childcare will be available during the sermon and prayer time.

Hope to see you there!

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

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.

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.

Redeeming Ruth Pt. 1- God’s Hand in Our Suffering

Ruth is one of the most wonderfully written stories in all of Scripture. It is one of only two books in the entire Bible named after a woman, and the only book in the Old Testament named after someone who was not racially Jewish. It focuses on a female friendship between a young new convert, Ruth, and an older bitter woman, Naomi.

The story opens in one of the darkest seasons of Old Testament history when God’s people were living in sin during a famine. Naomi was a Jewish woman whose husband moved her to the godless town of Moab that was descended from incest in the days of Genesis. There, Naomi saw her sons marry Moabite women. She then experienced the death of her sons and her husband in Moab, leaving her destitute and alone. Although admittedly bitter against God, Naomi decides to leave Moab and return home to God’s people. One of her daughters-in-law, Orpah, stayed with her people and religion in Moab, at Naomi’s urging. But Naomi’s other daughter-in-law, Ruth, was determined to leave her people and religion to worship Naomi’s God and live with God’s people.

Join us Friday, July 11th, at 244 Berding Street in Ferndale for the first message in Mars Hill Church’s Redeeming Ruth series, entitled God’s Hand In Our Sufferings. Dinner begins at 6:00, teaching begins around 7:00. Childcare will be available.
