Truth Project Continues Next Wednesday Evening
This Wednesday, July 25, we move closer to the conclusion of The Truth Project, with Tour #11. The topic is, “Labor: Created to Create.” Contrary to a great deal of contemporary popular opinion, work is not a “curse.” God Himself is active and creative, and He calls man to share in the joy of His activity and creativity. Labor, economics, media, and the creative arts all have a role to play in magnifying the glory of the Creator. The showing will be at 6:30 pm in the Camellia Room.
Lord’s Supper Next Sunday

Q. 66. What is that union which the elect have with Christ?
A. The union which the elect have with Christ is the work of God’s grace, whereby they are spiritually and mystically, yet really and inseparably, joined to Christ as their head and husband; which is done in their effectual calling.

Table Talk Moment
Authentic Saving Faith: There are “…three key elements: notitia, assensus, and fiducia. Notitia consists in knowing the basic facts concerning the person and work of Jesus. Assensus is the belief that these facts are true. Fiducia means personally entrusting ourselves to Christ to save us.” (Friday, July 13, page 46).
