Children and Youth Ministries Awana. The Awana Ministry serves children ages 2 – 18. Tuesdays, 6:15 – 8:00 p.m. (Dinner served at 5:00 p.m., with a donation of $3.00).
Today we celebrate the feast of St. Augustine, a Doctor of the Church and one of the most important theological writers of the 4th and 5th century.
We have individual Sunday School Lessons available. Semester Length Lessons. Apologetics. Brad Anderson: Apologetics more simply means “to make a defense.” This course of 1. This study includes a section on various “isms” which threaten the faith. Word. Atheism. Brad Anderson: The purpose of this series of lessons is to define and examine atheism from a Christian perspective. We are not out to prove God’s existence, but to examine and evaluate atheistic claims. Word. Baptist Distinctives Brad Anderson: Baptists are a distinct group with a set of theological beliefs that set them apart from other Christian groups.
The purpose of this series is to explore the history of the Baptists and to examine the biblical distinctives that Baptists have historically affirmed. The student should be able to understand and appreciate the theological distinctiveness of Baptists and be committed to continuing in that tradition. Word. Baptist History. Barry Pendley: Baptist History is a study on the foundations of Baptist groups, primarily the Calvinistic Baptists. This group of lessons will focus on rise of Baptist men from the English separatists in the sixteenth century. Consideration will be given to the Baptist Confessions, theologians, pastors, and other leaders. This study will also examine movements such as the Northern Baptist Convention, Conservative Baptist Association, and modern fundamentalist groups.
Bible Boot Camp. Brad Anderson: Are you looking for a good, solid discipleship course for your new Christian young person? Then this is your starting place. This course covers Salvation, Baptism many of the Christian Disciplines and even a lesson on How to Get the Most Out of a Sermon. Word. Bible Survey: Genesis Through Esther. Brad Anderson: It is very important for Christians to get a general overview of the Bible because it is their source of faith and practice.
This series is designed to examine the backgrounds and themes of Genesis through Esther. The authorship, dates, and some background history will be provided. Word. Biblical Ethics. Brad Anderson: This series will explore the ways in which our culture is dealing with significant moral issues of the day.
These issues include: Abortion, Euthanasia, Gambling, War, Pornography, Capital Punishment, etc. Our aim is to learn what the Bible teaches on such matters and encourage students to commit themselves to embrace and uphold biblical values. Word. Biblical Evangelism.
Brad Anderson: The goal of Biblical Evangelism is to give the student a thorough understanding of personal evangelism. We’ll define evangelism, study the theological underpinnings of evangelism, and learn how to communicate the gospel clearly and naturally. We’ll also study appropriate and inappropriate ways of presenting the gospel.
The outcome should be a renewed desire for students to reach their peers with the gospel, accompanied by the ability to do so. PDFBiblical Foundations for Living: A Systematic Theology Course for Teens. The Ekklesia Institute adapted for youth by Scott Estell and Brad Anderson Biblical Foundations for Living is best characterized as a mini systematic theology. Now freely available! Biblical Separation. Brad Anderson: “Why can’t we all just get along?” seems to be a common sentiment within Christianity today. Calls for unity and cooperation among the faithful grow louder by the day.
Perhaps all professing Christians should band together to stand against the rising tide of secularism and false religion. After all, most Christians do agree on a great many things. The Christian church should be united as a testimony to the lost world and as an efficient workforce in proclaiming the gospel. Perhaps it is natural, even desirable, that different viewpoints and philosophies prevent professing believers from working together. The goal of this series is to examine when believers can cooperate and when they must separate. Word. Book of 1 John.
Brad Anderson: John gives several proofs or evidences of genuine salvation, as opposed to empty claims. Many Christians struggle with this issue- how can one be sure that he is truly saved? John gives us several marks of genuine discipleship. If these marks are found in one’s life, then he can be assured that his faith is genuine. If not, he can have no such assurance.
Daily Messages"Even with all of the mistakes, opposition, and learning that accompany our mortal experience, God never loses sight of our eternal potential, even when we do. We can trust Him “because God wants His children back.” And He has provided a way through the Atonement of His Son, Jesus Christ. The Atonement “is the core of the plan of salvation.”"—Carole M. Stephens, "If Ye Love Me, Keep My Commandments"Topics: Atonement"The Lord knows what He wants to accomplish with each one of us.
He knows the kind of reform He wants to achieve in our lives, and we do not have the right to counsel Him. His thoughts are higher than our thoughts."—Rafael E. Pino, "The Eternal Perspective of the Gospel"Topics: Eternal Perspective"Our Father knew exactly what He was doing when He created us. He made us enough alike to love each other, but enough different that we would need to unite our strengths and stewardships to create a whole. Neither man nor woman is perfect or complete without the other.
Thus, no marriage or family, no ward or stake is likely to reach its full potential until husbands and wives, mothers and fathers, men and women work together in unity of purpose, respecting and relying upon each other’s strengths."—Sheri L. Dew, "It Is Not Good for Man or Woman to Be Alone"Topics: Eternal Perspective"There are millions of God- fearing people who pray to God to be lifted out of their afflictions. Cartoon T-Shirts For Adults. Our Savior has revealed that He “descended below all things” (D& C 8. As Elder Neal A. Maxwell taught, “Having ‘descended below all things,’ He comprehends, perfectly and personally, the full range of human suffering.” We might even say that having descended beneath it all, He is perfectly positioned to lift us and give us the strength we need to endure our afflictions. We have only to ask."—Dallin H. Oaks, "Strengthened by the Atonement"Topics: Atonement"We need not walk by the shores of Galilee or among the Judean hills to walk where Jesus walked. All of us can walk the path He walked when, with His words ringing in our ears, His Spirit filling our hearts, and His teachings guiding our lives, we choose to follow Him as we journey through mortality.
His example lights the way. Said He, “I am the way, the truth, and the life.”"—Thomas S. Monson, "Ponder the Path of Thy Feet"Topics: Jesus Christ Exemplar"Once we enter into covenants with God, there is no going back. Giving in, giving up, and giving out are not options.
In the kingdom of God, there is a standard of excellence for exaltation. It requires valiant discipleship! There is no room for average or complacent disciples. Average is the enemy of excellence, and average commitment will prevent you from enduring to the end."—Kevin W. Pearson, "Stay by the Tree"Topics: Covenants"The Atonement of Jesus Christ is available to each of us.
His Atonement is infinite. It applies to everyone, even you. It can clean, reclaim, and sanctify even you.
That is what infinite means—total, complete, all, forever."—Shayne M. Bowen, "The Atonement Can Clean, Reclaim, and Sanctify Our Lives"Topics: Atonement"Meekness is vital for us to become more Christlike. Without it we won’t be able to develop other important virtues. Being meek does not mean weakness, but it does mean behaving with goodness and kindness, showing strength, serenity, healthy self- worth, and self- control."—Ulisses Soares, "Be Meek and Lowly of Heart"Topics: Meekness"Now, I know it’s hard, particularly for our young people, to choose to observe the Sabbath day when athletic teams on which they so much want to participate regularly schedule games on Sunday. I too know it seems trivial to many who are in need of just a few items on the Sabbath to quickly stop at a convenience store to make a Sunday purchase. But I also know that remembering to keep the Sabbath day holy is one of the most important commandments we can observe in preparing us to be the recipients of the whisperings of the Spirit."—H.
David Burton, "A Season of Opportunity"Topics: Sabbath Day"I wish I could help everyone to understand this one simple fact: we believe in God because of things we know with our heart and mind, not because of things we do not know. Our spiritual experiences are sometimes too sacred to explain in worldly terms, but that doesn’t mean they are not real. Heavenly Father has prepared for His children a spiritual feast, offering every kind of exquisite food imaginable—and yet, instead of enjoying these spiritual gifts, the cynics content themselves with observing from a distance, sipping from their cups of skepticism, doubt, and disrespect."—Dieter F. Uchtdorf, "Be Not Afraid, Only Believe"Topics: Love of God.
