Adult Bible Fellowship- FINDING REFUGE IN GOD

Finding Refuge in God

ABF December 2015
 

Introduction: We expect God to deliver us from the turmoil and the violence of this world. We have always believed that He is the source of peace, but we have times when we are not at peace, when we wake up in the middle of the night because our life is unraveling. In this study we are going to look at Psalm 46, a Psalm of David. Toward the end of this Psalm, he writes,

Psalm 46:10 Be still, and know that I am God: I will be exalted among the heathen, I will be exalted in the earth.

We need to stop and think about the busyness of our schedules before the Holiday season. For a moment, let us be still and consider who is God and how He can help.

Family Christmas Sunday School Hour- December 27

On Sunday, December 27th, we will be having a Family Christmas during the Sunday School hour. All classes will be combined that day as families will stay together. The idea would be to have a few men from the church speak and Pastor will also be doing a devotional and story for the kids. He would like you to consider choosing one of the following questions and to briefly share your answer:

  1. Why was this Christmas special to you?
  2. What is your greatest Christmas memory?
  3. What is one thing that you would like to teach your kids about Christmas?
  4. What is the greatest gift you could give at Christmas?
  5. What is something that happened in your childhood, or even adulthood, that helped you understand what Christmas really is?
 
If you would be willing to share, please contact Pastor LaPine or the church office.  If you have any questions, please ask!
