January and February will feature a new message series on the book of Philippians. We will spend 8 weeks taking a deeper look at this letter from the Apostle Paul to the Church at Philippi.
It is sometimes called the Epistle of Joy. In this letter, Paul expresses his great joy in spite of the fact that he found himself in a prison cell. Through these words, he helps show us how we might also experience joy and peace through trying circumstances.
Our series will begin on January 5. During this time we want to encourage everyone to take some time to read this short letter that is four chapters. Pastor Phil specifically encourages us to:
- Read Philippians in one sitting. It takes approximately 15 minutes to read.
- Read it repeatedly. Set a goal to read it once a week. If you have more time try to read it daily or maybe five days each week.
- Read different translations. You can use bible.com to find various translations.
We hope you can join us for this experience and that you would experience a deep and profound joy in the Lord.
“And it is my prayer that your love may abound more and more, with knowledge and all discernment, so that you may approve what is excellent, and so be pure and blameless for the day of Christ, filled with the fruit of righteousness that comes through Jesus Christ, to the glory and praise of God.” (Philippians 1:9–11, ESV)
