Speaking as a father, Heath Lambert gives parents some practical ways they can shepherd their children well in a hyper-sexualized culture.
Sexual immorality is one of the pervasive issues covered in David Platt’s new book, Counter Culture. Drawing heavily on Scripture and compelling personal accounts from around the world, Platt presents a pointed yet winsome call for readers to faithfully follow Christ in countercultural ways—ways that will prove both costly and rewarding for the contemporary church.

Adult Bible Fellowship—Wednesday, March 25th at 6:30 PM in the fellowship hall.
God’s Own Defense of Scripture The Bible declares itself to be true. Yet the court of public opinion often attacks that claim with doubt, disbelief, even disgust. What’s the best way to defend scripture-reason, history, archeology, personal experience? We will spend several weeks in the Men’s Study showing how the Bible itself gives the best testimony to its veracity. You can be confident that the Bible you own is indeed God’s Word-this study helps you see why.

“In the year of King Uzziah’s death I saw the Lord sitting on a throne, lofty and exalted, with the train of His robe filling the temple. 2 Seraphim stood above Him, each having six wings: with two he covered his face, and with two he covered his feet, and with two he flew. 3 And one called out to another and said,
“Holy, Holy, Holy, is the Lord of hosts,
The [a]whole earth is full of His glory.”
“Woe is me, for I am ruined!
Because I am a man of unclean lips,
And I live among a people of unclean lips;
For my eyes have seen the King, the Lord of hosts.”
6 Then one of the seraphim flew to me with a burning coal in his hand, which he had taken from the altar with tongs. 7 He touched my mouth with it and said, “Behold, this has touched your lips; and your iniquity is taken away and your sin is [d]forgiven.” (Is 6:1-6)
