Man Up, the group just for men. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Church Centre.
Our next meeting is on Sunday, 15th April 2018 at 8 p.m. in the lounge at the St. John’s Church Centre with Matt Luff leading us. We will be continuing with our series looking at Paul’s first letter to the Thessalonians, looking at 2:13-16. Our series title is:
“Rejoicing in changed lives through hearing and believing the gospel”
This week Paul gives thanks that the Thessalonians recognised that they were not just hearing Paul speak to them, but that the word he was speaking was from God and they accepted it as such. Paul then compares the sufferings of the church in Judea to what the Thessalonians have been experiencing and concludes that those who oppose the advance of the gospel are storing up God’s wrath against themselves.
Paul’s teaching underlines that we should expect both joyful acceptance of the gospel, as well as significant opposition to it, as we seek to be obedient to Jesus’ command to share the gospel with others. Come and join the conversation at 8 p.m. on Sunday in the Church Centre.
