As the political season marches forward, sometimes it's hard to see through a Biblical framework. Join us starting 9/11 for a brief look at politics and Christianity.
Pastor Rick is back from his time away and is excited to start a new message series called The Kingdom.
Jesus taught more about His kingdom than any other subject, and yet I am convinced that the average Christ-follower has no idea what He meant and its significance for today. Come join us starting August 7th, to grow in the knowledge of God as we see how Christ's kingdom can shape who we are and what we do.
We are happy to have Dr. Ken Cuffey, Professor and President of Urbana Theological Seminary, preaching again for the rest of July. Dr. Cuffey will be unpacking the book of Ruth. Each week we will be learning together how God is subtly sovereign through much of what we experience in life.
Have you found it hard to see God working in your life sometimes? Does God ever seem hidden from you and your circumstances, and only in hindsight do you see that He was truly present and at work in the ordinary situations of life? God is actively working in times of sorrow and difficulty. He is present in what may seem mundane and insignificant but in reality He may be orchestrating these everyday moments with huge, life-changing significance far beyond what we could imagine.
Dr. Cuffey grew up in southern Indiana and pastored churches in Indiana and New Jersey before coming to Champaign, IL to teach Biblical Studies. He finds fulfilment in teaching, writing, biking and hiking. Dr. Cuffey has four grown children and four grandchildren and another one on the way in December. He currently resides in Champaign, IL.
We hope you join us on July 10th, 17th, 24th, and 31st, as we grow in our knowledge of God's sovereignty no matter how subtle it may seem.
