Man Up – Sunday 25th June

Man Up, the group just for men. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Church Centre.

Our next meeting is on Sunday, 25th June at 8 p.m. in the lounge at the St. John’s Church Centre with John leading us.  We will be looking at the seventh in our series in the letter to the Hebrews, covering Hebrews 10:26 – 12:3.  So far in the series we have learned that:

  1. Jesus is God’s greatest revelation, so we need to pay close attention to him and never drift away;
  2. Jesus is a real human.  He suffered death as a human to destroy death’s power and to free us from its slavery, so that we can have friendship with God.
  3. Jesus is God’s Son and is much greater even than Moses.  We need to fix our hopes on Him, by listening to, believing and acting on God’s word.
  4. Jesus is our great High Priest forever, so we can approach God’s throne with total confidence.
  5. We need to feed on the solid food, which is the truth about Jesus, so that we become mature in our faith, instead of falling away.
  6. The old covenant (temple, priests, sacrifice) was all looking forward to Jesus and the new covenant which he brought, so don’t ever give up on him!

Next up the writer of Hebrews looks at faith and perseverance.  The Bible is full of examples of God’s people who did extraordinary things as they looked forward to the fulfilment of the promises which God made.  This side of the cross, we see that God himself, in the form of his Son, the Lord Jesus, is the author and perfecter of our faith. He scorned the shame of the cross and persevered through torture and death itself.  Come and join us as we see how these examples inspire us to deeper faith today.

Man Up – Sunday 18th June

Man Up, the group just for men. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Church Centre.

Our next meeting is on Sunday, 18th June at 8 p.m. in the lounge at the St. John’s Church Centre with Peter leading us.  We will be looking at the sixth in our series in the letter to the Hebrews, covering Hebrews 8:1 – 10:25.  So far in the series we have learned that:

  1. Jesus is God’s greatest revelation, so we need to pay close attention to him and never drift away;
  2. Jesus is a real human.  He suffered death as a human to destroy death’s power and to free us from its slavery, so that we can have friendship with God.
  3. Jesus is God’s Son and is much greater even than Moses.  We need to fix our hopes on Him, by listening to, believing and acting on God’s word.
  4. Jesus is our great High Priest forever, so we can approach God’s throne with total confidence.
  5. We need to feed on the solid food, which is the truth about Jesus, so that we become mature in our faith, instead of falling away.

Next up the writer of Hebrews discusses and compares the old and new covenants.  Just how much better is the way which Jesus has opened up for us to gain access to God?  Much in every way!  Come and join us as we see the real thing, and how much better this is than mere shadows!

Man Up – Sunday 11th June

Man Up, the group just for men. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Church Centre.

Our next meeting is on Sunday, 11th June at 8 p.m. in the lounge at the St. John’s Church Centre with Martin leading us.  We will be looking at the fifth in our series in the letter to the Hebrews, covering Hebrews 5:11 – 6:20.  So far in the series we have learned that:

  1. Jesus is God’s greatest revelation, so we need to pay close attention to him and never drift away;
  2. Jesus is a real human.  He suffered death as a human to destroy death’s power and to free us from its slavery, so that we can have friendship with God.
  3. Jesus is God’s Son and is much greater even than Moses.  We need to fix our hopes on Him, by listening to, believing and acting on God’s word.
  4. Jesus is our great High Priest forever, so we can approach God’s throne with total confidence.

Next up the writer of Hebrews discusses Christian maturity and urges us to move on from the basics to get to grips with the full depth of the riches which God gives us in Christ.  He uses the analogy of milk vs. solid food.  He also gives a clear warning about the consequences of falling away and not persevering in Christ.  Come and join us as we feast on the solid food in Hebrews!

Man Up – Sunday 4th June

Man Up, the group just for men. Every Sunday at 8 p.m. in the Church Centre.

Our next meeting is on Sunday, 4th June at 8 p.m. in the lounge at the St. John’s Church Centre with Ian leading us.  We will be looking at the fourth in our series in the letter to the Hebrews, covering Hebrews 4:14 – 5:10 and chapter 7.  So far in the series we have learned that:

  1. Jesus is God’s greatest revelation, so we need to pay close attention to him and never drift away;
  2. Jesus is a real human.  He suffered death as a human to destroy death’s power and to free us from its slavery, so that we can have friendship with God.
  3. Jesus is God’s Son and is much greater even than Moses.  We need to fix our hopes on Him, by listening to, believing and acting on God’s word.

Next up the writer of Hebrews considers how Jesus is the perfect high priest, completely able to sympathise with us and understand our situations, and yet also able to represent us to God as he himself was without sin.  Jesus is a priest forever in the order of Melchizedek. If you can barely pronounce his name, let alone understand what this means and why it is important, then this Sunday’s session is for you!  Come and join us as we work out what all this means for us practically.
