The Spirit and the Bride say, “Come!”—A Sermon Series in the Book of Revelation
The Book of Revelation is one of the most encouraging and life-changing books in Scripture, however it must be read and understood on its own terms. Too often, readers and preachers impose their own ideas and interpretations which can quickly turn this very clear presentation of the gospel of Jesus into something bizarre and misunderstood.
Join us this Sunday as we continue in the incredible world of Revelation where Jesus reveals “things that you have seen, things that are and things that are to take place after this.” Come Lord Jesus!
when life and beliefs collide by carolyn james
In preparation for our first meeting, please read through "Introduction" in the study book for discussion on September 20th.  Discussion questions can be found on page 257.
Book study and discussion for Ladies…
Nothing in life is more certain than suffering. The first question we ask is, “Why?”… “Why me, why now, why this, why them?”; then the inevitable and painful doubt, fear, confusion and anger. So what do you do when life and beliefs collide? Join us as we tackle this head on… no trite “Christianese” phrases, no “pat” answers.
Marivi Isaac will facilitate a study and discussion of Carolyn James’ book, When Life and Beliefs Collide beginning Thursday evening, September 20th at 6:30 pm at 3938 Flamingo Dr. For more information contact her at or text 915-276-2056. Ladies, if you have a friend or family member struggling to make sense of life and faith, this is the perfect place to introduce them to the gospel of Jesus…the ultimate Sufferer who cried out to God, “Why?”

Mondays at 6:30pm
Please join us as CTK begins the fall semester with an 11-week study in We Believe in God.   Who is God? What are his attributes? His eternal plan? His works in history? At the most fundamental level, the Scriptures were given to us to teach us about who God is and what he has done for us. In fact, knowing God is essential for us to understand ourselves and our world. This is why we study what theologians call theology proper, or the doctrine of God.
Join us as we introduce the primary concerns of systematic theologians in regard to theology proper, discuss a systematic approach to discerning God's attributes, and survey God's plan and works, especially his decrees, creation and providence.  Email Pastor Chuck for more information.
The word "Addiction" covers a wide spectrum.  From substances like alcohol and tobacco, prescription medications or illegal drugs; to behaviors that provide a temporary high, like gambling, racing and similar activities.
In a three-part series to be held on three Saturdays, September 22, 29 and October 6 at 6:00pm, Deacon Jeff Thrasher will provide the opportunity to learn more about addiction and ways to cope with it. The series is a must for anyone personally suffering the devastating effects of addiction, or who has a friend or relative struggling with it.  We hope you can join us as we explore addiction from all aspects, physical, emotional, and most importantly, spiritual.
