Haggai – Consider Your Ways (4-part Sermon Series) 23 Sep to 14 Oct 2018

Every generation of believers must seek first the kingdom of God. In the book of Haggai, the prophet admonishes and ex-horts the post-exilic community of Israel to prioritise the restoration of God’s temple in Jerusalem over their own pursuits. In doing so, Haggai reminds us of the centrality of God’s presence, provision and purpose and thus the proper priorities of his people. In a world of ever-increasing attractions and concerns which clamour for our attention, Haggai has much to teach us about keeping God and his purposes the main thing.

Date Topic Speaker
23 Sep Dereliction and Devotion (1:1-15) Elder Caleb Chua
30 Sep Disheartenment and Hope (2:1-9) Dr Tan Lai Yong
7 Oct Blight and Blessing (2:10-19) Kenneth Wong
14 Oct Servant and Sovereign (2:20-23) Elder Ernest Chew

Church Wide Series In Aug/Sep 2018: Seeking The Holy Spirit

 

What does God’s word say about who the Holy Spirit is and how He “operates”? How does He make a difference in our lives even as we encounter suffering and trials? Let us journey together to get to know better the third Person of the Trinity, the Holy Spirit. May we be empowered and transformed as we seek to be filled with and led by Him!

In this church-wide series, we will have:

· a six-part pulpit series

· a 30 Day family devotional pack based on the “Fruit of the Spirit” – to encourage discipleship within families, but which can also be used personally.

· six Bible Study sessions

We will also have an Empower Weekend (Fri 7 & Sat 8 Sep) for you to experience extended times of reflection and ministry based on God’s word.
