GETTING READY FOR HAPPY NEW YEAR
January brings the beginning of a new calendar and the start of new sermon series, and video study series at Mt. Pleasant.
Bro. Tim begins a series of Sunday morning messages through the book of James that offer a practical look at the daily impact God's Word can have on our lives. Begin now reading through the book of James and allow God to speak to your heart.
On Sunday evenings, beginning January 21, we'll begin a journey through Ken Ham's video teaching series “The Foundations”. This 12-session series includes video teaching and group discussion on topics such as “The Relevance of Genesis”, “Revealing the Unknown God”, the “Six Days” of creation, being “Always Ready” to share the Gospel, and others. If you enjoyed Dr. Tommy Mitchell, you will certainly enjoy Answers in Genesis founder and president Ken Ham.
The right tools are important for doing a job well. Sharp knives cut better. Sharp axes cut wood more efficiently. The right screwdriver gets the job done safely. And, we are more effective in sharing our faith by using some good tools. Please begin praying about your involvement in a simply, 6-week training strategy for clearly, confidently, and concisely helping someone understand the gospel message. More info to come!
