A Challenge to Repair Our Altars

After a fruitless, day-long attempt to awake the gods of Baal on Mt. Carmel, Elijah "said to all the people, 'Come near to me.' So all the people came near to him. And he repaired the altar of the Lord that was broken down." (1 Kings 18:30) Brian Nash, in his sermon Sabbath, challenged us all to rebuild our personal altars -- family devotions, personal study time and prayer life. When we make God a priority in our personal and family lives -- the God who specializes in restoring us to Himself can move in mighty ways. How is your altar today?

Are You a River or a Swamp?

A Spiritual Challenge from Ezekiel

In Adult Sabbath School we spent considerable time in Ezekiel 47. The prophet in great detail (verses 1-12) describes a vibrant, life-giving river that flows through the land. "And it shall be that every living thing that moves, wherever the rivers go, will live." vs. 9 The power and influence of this river is so strong that even the sea is "healed" of its saltiness. "But its swamps and marshes will not be healed; they will be given over to salt." vs. 11 This week, read Ezekiel 47:1-12 and see for yourself this amazing word-picture of a Savior and His people that can make a difference in our world? So, are you a river or a swamp?

Family Night Heads to the Park!

Wednesday, July 27, 6 pm

Rain or shine . . . Springtown heads to the Gentry Park for Family Night! Great eating, devotions and time for some games. Perhaps kickball, bring your ball gloves, too! There's something for everyone! Please join us.

3-Week Series on Ezekiel Starts

Pastor Tony Digs Deep Into a Complex Book

Next Sabbath, July 30, we'll start a three-week series (7/30, 8/6 & 8/13) on Ezekiel. The Andrews Study Bible says the "major foci of Ezekiel are judgment and restoration, grounded in Day of Atonement themes." Pastor Tony admits that all of the themes and content cannot be covered in three Sabbaths, but he's excited to roll up his sleeves and spend three straight weeks with us in Bible study and Worship. YOUR ASSIGNMENT: Dig in yourself and begin reading the book of Ezekiel.
