Wednesday Bible Study Looks At ‘Praise And Thanksgiving’
Pastor Barron will present to us the scriptural commands to God’s people to engage in praise and thanksgiving. Join us at 7:00 today at The Woodlands Orchid Room for a time of prayer and study.
A Season Of Thanksgiving: NGC has much to be thankful for, as we look forward to November. Just as we saw Samuel exhort the people to thank God and remember his mighty acts of redemption to avoid relying on earthly power, we as a people will be concentrating on His blessings upon us. Our upcoming Wednesday Bible Studies will focus on thanksgiving to God, and we will enjoy a fellowship gathering on the evening of Wednesday, November 23, to corporately express our thanks to God and remember what he has done among us.
Sunday School: We are studying the ARPC’s Fall 2016 Adult Quarterly on I and II Samuel, “The Triumph Of God’s Anointed.” This Sunday we will study II Samuel 7: 1–29. Dr. Ross’ lesson is titled, “The Lord’s Covenant With David.” Part of this is a study of David’s great prayer of adoration and thanksgiving, which fits in well with our November emphasis on thanksgiving. A good background is reading Chapters 2–6 this week.
