Church Discussion Time On ‘The Piety Of Dort’ This Sunday
This Sunday, February 10, at 4:00, is our next discussion time at the home of Jack & Susan Williams. The article is “The Piety of Dort” by Joel R. Beeke and is found in the January Tabletalk on page 26. The Canons of Dort were written 500 years ago. You might ask, “What relevance could this old stuff have today for church people?” Consider the contemporary perceptions of Reformed people within the broader evangelical tent. Are our understandings of scripture really cold, harsh, sterile, burdensome and fatalistic as many would say? Do we “destroy human responsibility, promote false security, hinder evangelism and missions, discourage good works and genuine piety”? If you’re not sure how to answer these common impressions within today’s culture, read this article, and let’s discuss it together on Sunday afternoon at the Williams’ residence. Pastor Barron will lead the discussion, along with sharing good snacks and enjoying close fellowship. If you do not have the Tabletalk, there are copies on the table at the back of the sanctuary.
The second discussion time will be Sunday, February 24, at 4:00 pm at a location to be announced later. The article will be “Can We Trust the New Testament?” by Michael J. Kruger.

The Unity Of God’s People Under True Worship: Like the tribes described in today’s passage, we should be concerned for the pure worship of God, for if we violate God’s Word in worship, corruption of doctrine will soon follow. (Tabletalk Magazine, February 8, page 42).
Sunday School: This Sunday at 9:30am in the Camellia Room, we will continue our study of Titus from the ARP Adult Quarterly. Our topic for Sunday will be from Titus 2, “Grow In Godly Truth.” In this epistle, we will learn about “the good news that Paul has about applying the gospel of Jesus Christ in spiritually effective and appropriate ways.”
