Knowing God Better – Sovereignty Part 2

This fall, we’re taking our 3rd, 4th, and 5th Graders about through a series called Knowing God Better. Throughout this series, we’re looking at what the Bible has to say about the character of God. The goal of this study is not simply to learn facts about God. Rather, the goal is to understand God in a way that deepens our appreciation and love for Him, that deepens our relationship with Him. The goal is to understand God in a way that motivates us to become more like Him.

Why should we turn to God when life gets tough? That’s a question each of us needs to be able to answer, and it’s a question directly tied to the issue of God’s sovereignty.

The “Foolish Gospel”

“For indeed Jews ask for signs and Greeks search for wisdom; but we preach Christ crucified to Jews a stumbling block and to Gentiles foolishness.” -Corinthians 1:22-23 Ministry among the college students at Purdue University has given me a platform for interaction with many different worldviews.  Over a year ago, I seized an opportunity that… Read More»

Finding the Next Tess

When I was in Bible College, my first ministry opportunity was serving at a rural extension Sunday School in NE Pennsylvania called Island Plains.  The location made middle of nowhere seem urban.  I can still picture the route—cross the river, take the first gravel road and keep driving a really long time.  We met in… Read More»
