Our Weekly Schedule




SUNDAY 
10:00 AM     Worship & Teaching - Pastor Bob Lawrenz   
                    Message:  Joel 3:8 - 21 "The Lord Dwelleth in Zion"
                
                            Scripture Reading:       Romans 11:26-29



Joel 3 begins with a promise of restoration and then proceeds to a legal scene in which God produces evidence against the nations which will result in their judgment.  As you read, keep in mind that this climactic judgment scene describes events that will take place in the last days.  The Messiah will reign from Mount Zion in Jerusalem.  As someone has well said, "Israel is God's timepiece."  God's plan for the ages includes the little nation of Israel.  He will work out His perfect plan of redemption and will restore "the apple of His eye."

In this last chapter, Joel describes the day of the Lord, a day of judgment that is to be proclaimed to all nations. If you ask the question, “What will the day of judgment be like? What will it be like to be there when all nations will be gathered together in one place?” It seems unimaginable. Joel uses words to paint pictures. He portrays the day of the Lord so you can taste, see, and picture what this day will be like, and so that we may heed His warnings.

"Restore" is the key word of this whole book. God works to restore the broken relationship between His people and Himself.  He works to restore all that was lost, and He breathes new life into His own and begins to bless once again.   The restoration of Judah and Jerusalem in Joel 3:1, happens through the gathering for judgment in verse 2. 

 
10:00 AM     Ladies Prayer & Bible Study - Norine Lawrenz
                                                         
Our Tuesday Morning's Women's Study is on Summer Break for the month of July and will resume in August.  Please check back at a later time for updates. 

Ahh, summer. For some of us life slows down, for others it speeds up. Whether we’re juggling children home on summer vacation or have a jam-packed schedule of family activities (or both!), summer can also be a time when we allow lazy days and fun activity to distract us from our relationship with the Lord.  Our relationship with Jesus should never slip to the back burner of our lives.  Continue to commit yourself to daily time with the Lord in His Word and in prayer.  Seek His wisdom.  Search Him with all of your heart.  Glorify Him in all that you do.  Remember, He is at the center of our lives!
                   

As a contemporary of Isaiah and Hosea, Micah prophesied during the momentous years surrounding the tragic fall of Israel to the Assyrian Empire (722 BC), an event he also predicted (Micah 1:6). Micah stated in his introduction to the book that he prophesied during the reigns of Jotham, Ahaz, and Hezekiah in Judah, failing to mention the simultaneous string of dishonorable kings that closed out the northern kingdom of Israel.
During this period, while Israel was imploding from the effects of evil and unfaithful leadership, Judah seemed on a roller-coaster ride—ascending to the heights of its destiny in one generation, only to fall into the doldrums in another. In Judah at this time, good kings and evil kings alternated with each other, a pattern seen in the reigns of Jotham (good, 2 Kings 15:32–34); Ahaz (evil, 2 Kings 16:1–4); and Hezekiah (good, 2 Kings 18:1–7).
