The Story

  • by Max Lucado

An Hour of Study, Inspiration and Fellowship.

Together, through video and discussion, we will explore the major stories of the Bible. Come and enjoy our walk through the heart of God’s story.

The program will be led by Rev. David Cole and Pastor Clark.

Consider staying for our 10:30 a.m. church service in the Sanctuary. Among many things, you will have the opportunity to hear one of the finest pipe organs in Manatee County played by the renowned Composer Dr. Jim Culver along with the voices of a majestic 45 member choir.

Please come and feel the love of God in your life. It is life changing.

Living in Covenant

A Fulfilled Covenant
The first unit, in four lessons, reveals a new sign of the covenant for Jewish and Gentile believers, as recorded in Matthew, Mark, Luke, Hebrews, and Colossians. During the celebration of the Passover, Jesus explained to the disciples that he would initiate a new covenant through his death. Paul explains that the sign of the covenant is now a relationship of the heart between God and God’s people, not circumcision.

Each week’s lesson features:

  • A purpose statement offering focus and direction for the lesson.
  • Printed biblical text from The Common English Bible.
  • Reliable and relevant biblical explanation and application.
  • A closing prayer, guiding personal commitment.

Transforming Presence:  How the Holy Spirit Changes Everything-From the Inside Out
*by Daniel Henderson
 

Who is the Holy Spirit anyway?  We sing songs about Him. We’ve seen His name in the Bible. And most of us know He’s a part of the Trinity, but misunderstandings, confusion, and contention abound. And it’s keeping us from the abundant, satisfying life God has for us. “Transforming Presence: How the Holy Spirit Changes Everything-From the Inside Out” by Daniel Henderson walks you through ten vital practices that will help you have a new experience of the Holy Spirit. You’ll learn how our relationship with the Holy Spirit changed from the Old Testament to the New Testament, what common misconceptions of the Holy Spirit are, and how to think, speak, (and sing) rightly about Him.
