    3 out of the last 4 weeks have been baptisms. Last week a new person showed up and that night decided she wanted to get baptised. So, they baptised her last night.

    Seems to be alot going on in some very good ways in our little group that’s spread out all over the place…

    Happy Mothers Day to all the moms!
    I will be teaching the last half of 1 Cor. 15. Then we are going to have a baptism for the dead. (just kidding)

    London –
    That’s great! Praise God for all of the baptisms in your group & praying for many more to come.

  4. Tim says:

    We’re looking at 1 John 1:5-2:2, “Dealing with Sin.” Don’t be deceived regarding sin; DEAL with it. Our perfect God has provided the perfect solution to sin: Jesus Christ.

    Notes are here.

    I Timothy 5
    How to treat other folks. All ages & genders.

    Don’t beat old men out of shape, treat as your dad, treat young men as brothers not competitors, treat older women as you mom, treat young women as sisters.
    Sex outside of marriage with a sister is spiritual incest.

    Who is to take care of the widows.
    (Ty in with showing appreciation to moms this day 🙂 )

    Who is a true widow in Ephesus?

    Closing, be an example for Christ referring back to 1 Timothy 4:11.

    Taught on John 4:20-24 as the final message in a four-week series on worship. The first three weeks, used Psalm 34:1-3 as the anchor passage.

    “I will bless the LORD at all times, His praise shall continually be in my mouth.” Worship is our highest priority.

    “My soul shall make its boast in the LORD…” Worship is to be passionate.

    “…the humble shall hear of it and be glad.” Worship assists in our proclamation of truth.

    “O magnify the LORD with me, and let us exalt His Name together.” Worship invites participation.

    Oh yes, the Gospel was preached!

    And one dead man came up during the invitation to be baptized, the most we’ve ever had in one Sunday. 😉

    ‘Mad Bell’ 😉 hmmm… praying for the dead…. hmmm…
    i was surprised a while back to learn that there is a Jewish teaching, perhaps very similar to the purgatory of the RCs…
    as i understood the teaching, there are levels of departed souls (at least 3) and only the worst go directly to hell… not espousing it at all – just sayin’ 😉 but praying for the departed seems not right somehow…

    perhaps, you’ll be led to share some ponders as you get further into the teaching? on second thought 😕

    I’ve looked at some of the traditional prayers that for example, the Anglican liturgy contains.

    They mention the dead departed not for a hope of post mortem salvation, but as a recognition of the one Body of Christ, militant on earth and triumphant in heaven.

    It’s an affirmation of the unity of the church that is unbroken by death.

    The rest is a bunch of hooey… 🙂

  10. Em says:

    Michael,”The rest is a bunch of hooey… ”

    whew, that’s a relief 🙂

    I’m here to help! 🙂
