“At His Feet”



October 2017

Reformation Sunday

Sunday, October 29th is the 500th anniversary of the Protestant Reformation. In the worship service Pastor Pete leads the congregation in a celebration of Martin Luther’s life and the influence he provided for the reformers during the time of the Reformation. A collection of Responsive Scripture Readings, Church Hymns and a overview retelling of Martin Luther’s life will be the focus of this week’s worship service. Bring it Home as you Listen for Life!



Galatians – Distractions

Ken Bortz from Word Sowers International brought us the message from the Book of Galatians. It was almost as if the great Apostle Paul was here himself to quote from memory the letter to the church of Galatia. The take home Big Idea was that we need to live and walk in the liberty for which Christ Himself set us free. We need to love others with the love of Christ and see to it we are light ourselves giving hope to a hopeless and helpless world apart from the redeeming work of Jesus Christ and His powerful gospel of grace through faith. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!



“COVENANT”

This message may be one of the most important messages at Family Bible Church. The very first institution created by God Himself was marriage. Biblical marriage, the home and the family is under attack today. One might ask, ‘WHY?’ Simply put, because it is the very moral foundation of every civilization. A society cannot continue to grow and flourish if marriage and the family are redefined and changed by man. We are reaping the consequences of the foolish recreation, by man, of God’s institutions. Pastor Pete leads FBC in a collective Covenant Marriage rededication service by explaining the meaning of ‘COVENANT.’ He will explain the significance of a blood covenant in the Old and New Testaments. He will teach why the oaths and promises in a covenant marriage are so binding. When we say ‘I Do’ we are essentially extending God’s grace, mercy, forgiveness and His unconditional love. Covenant marriage may be the most powerful illustration of the Gospel message we could ever live out before one another and the world. Bring it Home as you Listen for LIFE!

The Edification of the Church

The Lord has ordained a mission for His church and commanded the church to “go therefore and make disciples of all the nations (Mt. 28:19-20).” This mission was to begin in full after the receipt of the Holy Spirit (empowerment) and was to start first in Jerusalem (home) then move outward into the world (Acts 1:8). Today the postmodern church all too often focuses its efforts regarding “the work of ministry” singularly on the commission of disciple-making, primarily targeting those who are in the world. But in order for the corporate church through its individual members to be an effective disciple maker for the advancement of the Gospel there must first be an unwavering investment inwardly to the body of Christ that is deeply grounded on the foundational rock of truth, which is Scripture. Only from this foundation can genuine edification and equipping of the saints take place for the work of ministry for the glory of the Lord.

The Sufficiency of Scripture

Most Christians believe the Bible is true, but what about the sufficiency of the Word of God? Sufficiency of Scripture is one of the biggest battles we face today. IS THE BIBLE ENOUGH? Can the Bible answer all the life questions we have. I say yes.



The Called, the Committed and the Uncomfortable

Tomorrow may be the day that one of us is called to go and tell the world about Him, of what He has done for you, of what it means to accept Christ as Lord and Savior. Are you ready? Listen as Reverend Grif Vautier speaks of being called, being committed and being uncomfortable.



Let the Love of Christ Dwell in You Richly

Since we have been raised with Christ, we must set our minds on things above. Loving one another from the heart. Forgiving as the Lord has forgiven us. We are all part of His body, knit together by the love Jesus Christ openly displayed when He stretched out His arms on the cross.



Life Through the Gospel

In who or what are we believing? It is the gospel that brings life to our lifeless, sinful flesh. Deception and captivity come from looking for freedom in things that have an appearance of wisdom, but can not and will not, bring about a change of heart, a change of direction or make on alive to serve Christ. Only the gospel can achieve this!
