Here’s some of the things we mentioned yesterday at church as we look ahead to the holidays…
• Gospel of John – we are still wrapping up the wrapping up of our teaching through the Gospel of John series. As I mentioned in an earlier post, I am expecting two or three Sundays following our John series and before the end of the year, and we may look at some chapters in Matthew or Psalms…stay tune on that.
• New Series in January – Let’s begin the new year with 1 & 2 Thessalonians and somewhere in that series I may want to pause to take one or two Sunday’s to look at something I’ve been working on for print that I’m titling “10 Reasons Why I Now Believe in a Pretribulation Rapture.”
• Pastor’s Retreat – I will be away to Shocco Pines Camp near Talladega, Alabama for a Calvary Chapel pastors retreat on November 28-30, 2016. Some may know this but for the better part of the last two years I have enjoyed ministerial fellowship with pastors in the Deep South Conference of Calvary Chapel.
• Christmas Party Gathering – Mark your calendar for Sunday, December 18 at 5:30 PM and let’s meet at Chris & Jody’s house. We’ll share directions at church, too.
• Sunday Recap – Usually on Monday, but sometimes on Tuesday, I will record a 5 – 7 minute video recap of our Sunday gathering as a way to keep our fellowship informed and up to date on the highlights of our Bible teaching series. This Sunday Recap video is first posted to our church Facebook page at www.facebook.com/crosshopechapel and then to my YouTube channel at www.youtube.com/stevedurkac.
