Break

What: Bible study and outreach ministry
When:
Thursday: 9:30-11:00 AM (September

Where: Church classrooms
Directors: Linda Koonce and Kris

Our
primary purpose in Coffee Break is to reach out to women from
our community and to women within our own church who are in need
of a basic Bible study and Christian fellowship.
If
you are new to our church, like to study God’s Word and meet other
women, then please come to be a part of our fellowship.

Every
Thursday morning we gather for singing and praise, then break
into small groups for prayer and study. This year we plan to study
the books of Hebrews and Romans. We are sure that the lessons
will be a blessing to those who attend.

Do
you know someone who is lonely, needs a friend and is searching
for a closer relationship with Jesus Christ? Please bring them
along with you to Coffee Break!

Topic:
The
Hole in Our Holiness: Filling the Gap between Gospel Passion and
the Pursuit of Holiness
, by Kevin de Young.

"Maybe
you’ve thought about how God saves us, or what we must do to be
saved, or when you were saved. But have you ever considered why
he saved you? There is more than one right answer to that question.
The Bible says God saved us because he loves us (John 3:16). It
also tells us that God saved us for the praise of his own name
(Eph. 1:6, 12, 14). Those are two of the best answers to the why
question. But there is another answer – just as good, just as
biblical, just as important. God saved you so that you might be
holy…. God chose us for salvation in eternity past and sent
Christ to save us in history and gave us the gift of faith by
the working of the Holy Spirit in our lifetimes so that we might
be holy."
(Eph. 1:3-4) (pp. 23-24)

What
role the law of God? What role the gospel of Christ?
What role God’s grace? What role our effort?

Philip is an outreach organization that places New Testament Bibles

literature includes a mail-back postcard offering enrollment in
our free children and/or adult Bible study (in both English and
Spanish). Those who return their enrollment cards are sent a Bible
lesson. Returned lessons are corrected and then the next lesson
is mailed back to them.

Volunteers
are always welcome to help prepare literature and Bibles for distribution,
or to correct the Bible lessons. In addition to the camaraderie
and refreshments, we take time to join together in prayer for
this outreach. Even though we meet from 9:00 to 11:00 am, come
join us when you are able to get there, and leave when you need
to leave.
