Immerse Bible Study
Maybe you have heard the question asked, “Where was ________ “when something happened. The context might be one of celebration, tragedy or just normal life, but the question remains the same, “Where was ________?” In our current preaching series we are discovering how God was present in the lives of people throughout all their life experiences.
We are reading through a book titled “Beginnings”. This book is a reprint of the Pentateuch, or the first five books of the Bible. The book is put together without the typical chapter and verse references. It is formatted much like any other literary writing. Each Sunday I am been preaching from a section of this book. One thing that we have noticed is how often God proved that He was always watching out, encouraging, and even challenging the characters in this script. It also becomes a solid truth in our own lives, “God is always around”.
I invite you to join us in this study and reading through the first five books of the Bible. In the next couple of years, we are planning on reading (and studying) through the entire Bible. If you have never accomplished this before, this might be the right time to take on such a challenge.
Verse of the Day
Regardless of a person's situations, there are a few needs in life that are universal.In today's society, we are inundated with items that will supposedly solve all our problems and make life easier. Advertisers lead us to believe that their unique product will meet the "needs" that they attempt to convince us we have. Despite their claims, we still face challenges and we come to realize that life isn't always "perfect."
need for meaning and hope
need for belonging and acceptance
need for usefulness
At Milwaukie Covenant Church, we direct people in meeting those needs.
- First, we believe that hope does not come in a bottle or a new toy, but in a book called the Bible. In it we learn that our hope is in Jesus Christ.
- Second, Jesus taught that all people, regardless of race and social status were accepted and welcomed in his house. That too is what we try to emulate at MCC.
- Finally, regardless of experience and background, all are useful in the sight of God and that He equips each person for service.
