Patterns of Evidence: Exodus

In 2002, filmmaker Timothy Mahoney went to Egypt looking for an answer to one fundamental question: did the Exodus story as written in the Bible really happen? During the course of his 12-year project he reviews accepted archaeological viewpoints, compares biblical references to evidence and presents alternative theories that support the validity of the event called The Exodus.

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm?
Bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4–8. As you follow this prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears. (Product Description)

Apologetics

Sunday 9:30 a.m.
Mixed Adults
2nd Floor, Room 220
Steve Ogren
 
The term ‘Christian apologetics’ doesn’t refer to apologizing (or saying ‘sorry’) for being a Christian. It comes from the Greek word ?πολογ?α (apología) meaning defense. Christian apologetics is the reasoned defense of the Christian faith against objections, but also includes the setting forth of positive grounds for Christianity. (creation.com) Come join us as we dig into the Word to help us “Always be prepared to give an answer to everyone who asks you to give the reason for the hope that you have.” (1 Peter 3:15)
 
 

Overcomer

Sunday 9:30 a.m.
Mixed Adults
Library
Pastor Grotzke
 
What has power over you?
 
In a world that is infatuated with power, most of us feel powerless—powerless to control the destiny of our nation, career, financial security, and even our own addictions. We know we are in a battle for our lives, but we can’t seem to find the strength we so desperately need.
 
What if I told you that you can change this? What if I told you there is One who can empower you to prevail over the emotional, physical, and even spiritual chaos in your life?
 
Interested?
 
In my new book and series, Overcomer, I share with you how you can overcome life’s everyday challenges with the power of God. Yes, God wants us to be people of strength and courage. He wants to build into our lives a spirit of power (2 Timothy 1:7). He has even commanded us to “be strong in…the power of His might” (Ephesians 6:10).
 
Be strong in…the power of His might. Ephesians 6:10
The call to “be strong” is not new. Every Christian in every era, regardless of age or maturity, is called by God’s Word to be an Overcomer. Letting fear or your own inadequacies keep you from the battle is not an option. God promises to strengthen you with His might. It is a gift and you are commanded to use it.
 
Are you an Overcomer? God created you to be! Enough living in defeat. God has given us supernatural tools to use here on earth that can both protect you from the enemy and strengthen you to conquer the greatest obstacles in life—spiritual attacks don’t need to leave you defeated, discouraged, disillusioned, or distraught.
