Jonah is a book that challenges our faith. It is one of the most ridiculed stories in the Bible; especially by those who deny the possibility of miracles. Join us this evening as examine Jonah’s reluctance to speak out for God and how the Lord pursued him and brought Jonah back into His will.
Throughout our series in the Book of Acts, we learned that an ongoing Bible teaching ministry is vital for impacting our communities for Christ Jesus. Paul taught the Word of God in the synagogues, from house to house, and in lecture halls. This suggests that there are three settings for teaching the Word of God in the local church: the Sunday services, Life Group gatherings and Christian education ministries. The leadership of PBC seeks to retain a three-pronged approach in regard to the ministry of the Word: The first prong is our Sunday morning church service, where the focus is on the exposition of Scripture. An equally important second prong, are Life Group communities, where the focus is on the application of Scripture. The third essential prong, are Christian Education opportunities, where the focus is on the instruction of Scripture. We believe the evening service will serve as an effective venue to address the instruction of the whole counsel of God. The evening service will combine worship and Word; it will give opportunity for equipping toward spiritual maturity, developing spiritual gifts and be a non-intimidating and informal place to bring our inquiring friends to explore on a more basic level what the Bible is all about.
