Understanding the Old Testament


The Old Testament has often been taken out of textual and historical context by our secular culture,at times by the church as a whole and by our own personal opinions based on our experiences in the world and in the church. It is clear that we need to know the real God of the Bible, not a fabricated image we conjure based on false information and opinion. From beginning to end, the Bible is God’s story of His faithfulness, promise and provision to a wayward and unfaithful people. We need to get to know this story - His story. In knowing who God is as He is revealed in the pages of scripture, we can then reflect His character in our lives to the world around us.

  • Can you name the five covenants that God gave to His people in the Old Testament

  • Why was the Exodus of the Israelites such an important event?

  • What should be our response to God’s provision in our own lives?

Financial Update

The General Fund is in need of your help, giving for the current fiscal year July 1 to November 11th has been averaging $20,829 compared to our budget requirement of $24,942. This has resulted in an overall budget shortfall of $82,500 for the current year. As we look to the upcoming year, our budget includes the addition of a pastoral staff member. If we are to proceed, this needs our immediate attention. Please pray about this important matter and give as you are able. God bless you as you commit a portion of your resources to His work in reaching our community for Him.
