We are grateful to have Mr. Jeremiah Mooney as our preacher this morning. His sermon title is, “Jonah 4: A Portrait of God’s Mercy and Compassion.”
Jeremiah is a seminary graduate and member of the Christ Covenant Orthodox Presbyterian Church in Taylors. He has preached for us in the past and we glad to have him back to supply the pulpit at North Greenville while Pastor Barron recovers from his knee replacement surgery.
Monthly Church Discussion
Our next Sunday afternoon Church Discussion time will be September 16th. The article that will be our focus for the time is by Randall Van Meggelen and is entitled New Covenant Worship: Lift Up Your Hearts.” It is found on page 66 of the August Table Talk. If you do not have the Table Talk, there are copies on the table at the back of the sanctuary.

The August focus is the North Greenville Crisis Ministry. We are receiving donations this Sunday, August 19. Special needs for the month are kids’ summer clothing, toiletries, and rice.
Q. 80. Can true believers be infallibly assured that they are in the estate of grace, and that they shall persevere therein unto salvation?
A. Such as truly believe in Christ, and endeavour to walk in all good conscience before him, may, without extraordinary revelation, by faith grounded upon the truth of God’s promises, and by the Spirit enabling them to discern in themselves those graces to which the promises of life are made, and bearing witness with their spirits that they are the children of God, be infallibly assured that they are in the estate of grace, and shall persevere therein unto salvation.
(Westminster Larger Catechism)
Table Talk Moment
The Promise Of Another Helper: “…Jesus also promised that He would send “another Helper” to be with them after His ascension, namely the “Spirit of truth”. He was referring, of course to the Holy Spirit.” (August 14, page 43).
Sunday School: This Sunday at 9:30am in the Camellia Room, we will look at 2 Peter, focusing on 1: 1-21. Our topic for Sunday will be, “You Can Be Sure.” The Holy Scriptures provide a sure foundation for faith, and by faithfully keeping God’s word we become sure of our salvation. For background reading, look at all of 2 Peter 1.
Wednesday Prayer And Bible Study will be on vacation until September 5.
