3. Next Sunday’s message is Does a Godly Home Guarantee Godly Kids? We’ll be taking a closer look at Proverbs 22:6 which says, “Train up a child in the way he should go: and when he is old, he will not depart from it” and the assumptions that surround it. This verse, particularly the second half of it, gets butchered and twisted beyond recognition and re-phrased to say something it does not say.
A lot of parents suffer from guilt – boatloads of it – and this message from God’s Word will liberate you.
4. Pastor Gary Wieborg did an exceptional job preaching for us last Sunday. I look forward to hearing him again.
5. Teaching team. I’m very glad our church is growing in this manner – i.e, the development of other speakers as a teaching team. This year our congregation has been exposed to three teachers/preachers of God’s Word – besides myself – and it has been a good thing. That means there are a now total of four men who are “apt to teach” (I Tim. 3:2), capable of handling the Sunday morning service. At this level PCC will never lack or be in want of a gifted teacher for the weekend services. And there are one or two others that I have identified for future use too!
I have been very deliberate about moving this direction for a long time and late last year I dedicated myself to the task. Now it’s beginning to take shape and I’m very glad to see it so.
