My Millennial Journey (so far)- Andrew

As I sit to write this, I am a little hesitant because I’m not sure I have landed concretely on any position concerning the millennial reign of Christ. The most popular view held today is the premillennial view. In 2019, I remember being at a lunch for reformed pastors in our area. One of theContinue reading “My Millennial Journey (so far)- Andrew”

Apologetics: Starting March 3, 2021

I know many people who reject God based on claims about what science reveals or not. People evolved from a more primitive creature and were not created from dust. The earth is nearly 5 billion years old, not 6 thousand. The universe took billions of years to form, not six days. Many of us haveContinue reading “Apologetics: Starting March 3, 2021”

Distinctives: 3 Basic Millennial Positions

There is much misunderstanding in the church about the differences between the 3 basic millennial positions. As we continue to walk through Revelation during our Sunday lunch series, I wanted to provide the distinctives. I also want to encourage you not to give-in to the sin of hasty-generalization. Even if someone technically falls into oneContinue reading “Distinctives: 3 Basic Millennial Positions”

Holy Week Timeline: According to Matthew’s Gospel

On Wednesday evenings, during our Bible study, we are starting the Holy Week discourse. The Holy Week discourse is seven chapters long from Jesus’s triumphal entry into Jerusalem to His resurrection and covers the span of only eight days from Sunday to Sunday. Holy Week at a Glance Sunday (21:1-17) Triumphal Entry Into JerusalemCleansing ofContinue reading “Holy Week Timeline: According to Matthew’s Gospel”

February 2021 Announcements–New Resources for You

January is already over. I finished revising my crazy school paper, and will see if I am really finished when my prof gets back to me. I miss everyone who isn’t able to make it on Sundays or throughout the week for whatever reason. I just want to be around my church family and friendsContinue reading “February 2021 Announcements–New Resources for You”

2021–The Year of Fellowship

We sat together in our annual meeting, and the congregation had one heart. I asked, “What are some words that describe The Church at Sunsites?” A few members spoke up: We love God. We love the fellowship. We love the Bible. To find a local church that truly loves and follows hard after God isContinue reading “2021–The Year of Fellowship”

2021 Annual Family Meeting Information

Each year, we have an annual meeting to: select officers, approve the budget for the succeeding year, and address any other matters which might concern the Church at that time. Bylaws III.2.c. Tonight’s meeting (1-14-2021) has several things on the agenda: We will review what God did in 2020 in and through The Church atContinue reading “2021 Annual Family Meeting Information”

TCATS Mobilized for World Mission

You might not know it, but part of my job description is to mobilize the Church at Sunsites for world mission (Bylaws IV.2.b.xi). The responsibility is biblical because every Christian is to do the great commission (Matthew 28:18-20) and the pastors of the church are to train the saints for the work of ministry (EphesiansContinue reading “TCATS Mobilized for World Mission”

Deacons and Denarii

Families are more blessed when they do things together. There are two things we never see in Scripture. We never read about a rogue pastor or deacon being the solo church successfully. We never see healthy local churches in which the members are not at work. Our church bylaws explicitly state that  “administering the businessContinue reading “Deacons and Denarii”
