We warmly welcome our guest preacher Rev. Tim Blackmon as he begins a sermon series on Jan. 19, 2020, based on the book of 1 Peter. Rev. Blackmon will focus on how the Gospel is the foundational principle by which Christian life is lived and expressed within the larger, unbelieving society.

Martin Luther once called 1 Peter, “One of the noblest books in the New Testament,” because he believed it contained everything a Christian needs to know.

Theologian Edmund Clowney added that “1 Peter is the most condensed New Testament resume of the Christian faith and of the conduct that it inspires.” Peter’s letter wrestles with some very important questions: How do you live with the misery of hardship and suffering? How do you handle being unfairly criticized? What do you do if your life is not going according to plan? What should be our place in the world as Christians?  By addressing these questions and others, Rev. Blackmon will be our guide as we explore what it means to be Christians – strangers even – in this present secular age.

Join us on Sundays in January, 9am or 10:30am, for, “Who Are You? Christian Identity in a Secular Age.”
