Men’s Ministry October 2007 Update

Men,

Men’s Ministry aims to help men to be godly agents of influence and encourage them as they strive to be the spiritual leaders in their families. We are currently building a base of active men through regular involvement in a variety of focused activities. Of course we’ll be having out monthly Breakfast and Bible Study this coming Saturday morning at 8 am in the Fellowship Hall. Other events, i.e., Times of Prayer, Bible Study, Service, Special Events, and Small Groups are planned throughout the year with the expectation that relationships will form that will help men to become stronger disciples of Jesus Christ.
If you made improving your Service to Others a priority for 2007, grab a buddy and …

– Consider helping prepare breakfast for this Saturday’s Men’s meeting and delivering food to needy folks in the LaGrange community. Come to the LBC Kitchen this Saturday, September 1st at 6:30 a.m. and see Johnny McRoberts. Then stick around for Breakfast, Bible Study and fellowship from 8-9 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall and hear an inspiring lesson from staff or elders.

– We will also be having another “Repair Day” – this time there are 2 projects identified, one gutter repair on a local home and the other repairing the flooring in a mobile home. If you have electrician, plumbing or carpentry skills, we need you. Please see Rick Davidson or Alan Richards after the breakfast and be sure to bring your work clothes and a willing spirit, dressed ready to work.

In His Service,

Tom

Depression and the Christian

Pastor Tony completes our series on LIFE Basics by taking a serious look at depression, specifically with how depression can and does effect Christians. Using Psalm 88 as our guide and referencing Charles Spurgeon‘s The Treasury of David, Pastor Tony shows a Biblical guide to experiencing and expressing depression.
This is an excellent resource not only for those who suffer with depression, but also for those who know, love, live with, work with, or counsel those who suffer with depression.

Guilt and Forgiveness

Pastor Tony continues our series on LIFE Basics by getting to the very root of the Gospel (Matthew 11:27-30) and our conscience (Romans 2:14-15). He then takes us deep into Hebrews 9:1-14; 10:14,19-22 so that we can learn to trust the Gospel and not our conscience.

LIFE at LaGrange Baptist

This 8 minute video is a brief introduction to what we call LIFE at LaGrange Baptist Church. Hear from Pastor Doug Wolter and some of our LIFE teachers as they share a glimpse of how they live the LIFE both inside and outside the class.

Sunday, October 7th, we will have our first LIFE Basics training and we will look at the word Evangelism. During our time together we will learn how to share the gospel using a tract called “Two Ways To Live.” At this training we will also discuss different ways that each of us can promote the gospel in Oldham County (and beyond). Next week you can sign up for this training in the foyer or online. If you would like more information check with your LIFE class teacher.

How Do I Know I Am A Christian?

Pastor Tony resumes our series on Life Basics with helping us to understand, based on Romans 3:21-25 and 2 Peter 1:5-11, that it is not important if we can remember the point in time we committed our lives to Christ – what date/time, what prayer was said, what isle was walked, or what committment card was filled out. Our faith does not rest on any of these experiences of salvation. Our faith rests 2000 years ago on the work of God of Christ on the cross. We cannot look to anything that we have done to know our salvation – we must look outside of ourselves to Christ and His perfect work completed on the cross. Only then can we rest in His Grace and Grow in Christ.

LIFE Basics

For the past year you have heard the word LIFE used to describe training for our Sunday School teachers. We have also adopted the word LIFE as the name of Bible Study Hour (formerly known as Sunday School). LIFE stands for Love, Instruction, Fellowship, and Evangelism. Our teachers have been looking at these areas as they have been leading your class. We will continue LIFE Training with our teachers this year and we want to expand that training to the entire church body through LIFE Basics.

Sunday, October 7th, we will have our first LIFE Basics training and we will look at the word Evangelism. During our time together we will learn how to share the gospel using a tract called “Two Ways To Live.” At this training we will also discuss different ways that each of us can promote the gospel in Oldham County (and beyond).

deeper Kick-off

In our Student Ministry we want to assist students in developing habits (means of grace) to become deeply rooted in God’s Word. We offer a special ministry called deeper which enables students to know God so they can live a radically God-centered life. In deeper we lead students to discover biblical answers by asking real questions and challenging them to dig deep into God’s Word for truths – truths they discover for themselves. So mark your calendars students and parents, deeper kick-off, September 16th, 5:00 PM. This time will give you an accurate picture of what deeper involves. We will explain the weekly and monthly commitment and view the materials.
