Announcements, Aug. 12, 2016
This Sunday we start our series through 1 Timothy, one of my favorite books in the Bible. This short letter reads like an instruction manual for the local church from the Apostle Paul to his young ministry protege, Timothy. It not only gives us much practical teaching about life together as a body, but it also points us to a deeper understanding of God’s plan of redemption and the means by which he brings it about through the church.
This Sunday we’ll cover 1 Timothy 1:1–11. I’d also encourage you to read Acts 19, which recounts the story of Paul’s planting of the church in Ephesus where Timothy pastored.
I look forward to seeing you all this Sunday!
