Reconciliation Meditation
-----------------------------

Because this is the fourth Sunday of October,
there are no staffed classes for children
birth through Grade 2,   
but some rooms are unlocked 
should you need them: 

The Woodlands (Nursery, Rm 3),
Mom's (Rm 2),
and the Nest (Infant, Rm 1) 
are open.


-------------------------------------------
Children Grade 3 and above are welcome to join
together for
Catechism Class this Sunday
in the Internet Cafe
during the sermon.
Dear Friends,
Confessing our faith together is a way to demonstrate our unity. We say together, with enthusiasm, a summary of what we believe. We began to do this as a regular practice three weeks ago. This week we'll continue with a new summary of our faith.
Over the centuries, the Christian church has written many wonderful creeds and confessions. Although they are not inspired and authoritative as the Bible is, to the extent they reflect the Bible's teaching, they are useful for teaching and evangelism.
The need for creeds and confessions is established by Scripture. We have already used the early confession that Paul repeated for the Corinthians in I Corinthians 15:3-6. This week we'll use another Biblical confession, found in I Timothy 3:16.
I'll print it for you below so you can be familiar with it before we gather on Sunday morning. 
I look forward to seeing you!
Your servant in Christ's cause,
--Steve

From I Timothy 3:16

Pastor:
An important part of our worship is when we unite in our confession of the Christian faith. We are thankful that Christians have been free to openly confess their faith in the United States.

But if that changes, whether we are free to confess our faith or not, we will boldly do so.

Christian, what do you believe?
 

All:
I believe that Jesus is Lord.

He was manifested in the flesh,

Vindicated by the Spirit,

Seen by angels,

Proclaimed among the nations,

Believed on in the world,

Taken up in glory.

Pastor:
Great indeed, we confess, is the mystery of godliness!
 

All:
Amen!


There will be a short Q & A after this coming Sunday's service. 
This is a time to hear the latest from the elders and Matt,
and for the body
to ask questions of the church leadership.

 
Have you ever thought about education being an open door for the Gospel in the Muslim world? Over the next few weeks, this will be our focus of prayer.

It was education that prompted "Neima" to ask questions and seek answers. And ultimately, it was her studies that led her to find answers in Jesus Christ. 

Because Jesus is the Answer. 

All around the world today Muslims are learning, discovering, exploring, reasoning, and questioning. They are seeking Truth. 

Jesus said, “I AM the Truth.”

May education be a door that leads many Muslims to Jesus. Just like "Neima."

 
Let's Pray!

There is a glorious day in our future. 
A day when every nation, tribe, people, and language will stand before His throne.
We will unite our voices in crying,
“Salvation belongs to our God, who sits on the throne, and to the Lamb.” 

May multitudes of Muslims be there that day,
joining in that eternal chorus.

 

It's Shoebox Time! 

Let's share the true meaning of Christmas!


 
Over the coming weeks, people across our nation will be packing
gift-filled shoeboxes for Operation Christmas Child. 

Each shoebox that you fill with gifts represents an opportunity to
share the gospel of Jesus Christ. 
As our church partners hand out these gift boxes,
they present the gospel and offer booklets that tell the story of
Jesus Christ in the local language.

A display with shoeboxes, labels, and more specifics
will be set up in our Chapel,
and Harvest Bible Chapel and Swedesford Road Church
are joining together on


Saturday evening, November 13thto pack shoeboxes. 

All are encouraged and welcome to participate!


 
Watch here!!
