CURRENT STUDY

OCTOBER 6 - NOVEMBER 17, 2021

"HEADLINES"

Have you ever wondered why it seems our nation and world are headed in the wrong direction? We see it in the culture. We see it in politics, both at a state and national level. We see it at school board meetings. Ideals and attitudes that were unthinkable just five years ago now seem to be mainstream or soon-to-be mainstream. The behavior of younger generations seems devoid of anything representing a Christian or Biblical ethic but instead seems to follow the title of the Broadway musical entitled "Anything Goes."

  1. The distinction between the Creator and creation
  2. The distinction between humans and the rest of creation
  3. The distinction between man and woman

All three of these distinctions are under attack every day by the liberal elites in our nation. In fact, we're near the point in our nation where, if you hold to a Biblical view of marriage or the distinction between male and female relationships, you're considered a danger to society. In this Casual Wednesday series, we will discuss what's going on in our country, government, politics, churches, schools, and other entities. We'll also explore what the Bible says about these things. Join Pastor Brad for this class Wednesday nights in Langill Hall at 6:00 p.m. beginning October 6.

UPCOMING STUDY

JANUARY 5 - FEBRUARY 23, 2022

Gentle and Lowly: The Heart of Christ for Sinners and Sufferers

January 5 - February 23, 2022

Christians can easily feel that Jesus is perpetually disappointed and frustrated, maybe even close to giving up on them. They know what Christ has done for them—but who is he? How does he feel about his people amid all their sins and failures?


In Matthew 11, Jesus describes himself as “gentle and lowly in heart,” longing for his people to find rest in him. This book reflects on his words, diving deep into Bible passages that speak of Christ’s affections for sinners and encouraging believers as they journey, weary and faltering, toward heaven.


The first Casual Wednesday class in 2022 will be a study of the book “Gentle & Lowly” by Dane Ortlund. This study and the sermon series (during month of January) will relate. PLUS PCPC will launch small groups in January. They will also study Gentle & Lowly. The Casual Wednesday class will be geared towards the small group facilitators, although it is open to all. At various days/times throughout the week, small groups will meet to do the study and build relationships.


Details on the Small Groups will be available soon.
