Thanks to all the speakers who contributed to the Upper West Manhattan church of Christ’s “Five Guys” Bible Lecture Series. Our topic this year was “Portraits of Faith,” and we had an uplifting, encouraging, and challenging weekend of discussions on how we can take lessons from Bible characters such as Abraham, Joseph, Hannah, Peter, and Nehemiah, and apply those principles to our daily lives in serving God.

2016 Fall Lecture Series: The Fellowship of Believers

 

Our thanks to Hal Hammons for an encouraging weekend of teaching from the word of God during our Fall Guest Lecture Series. The topic was “The Fellowship of the Believers,” and it gave each of us a lot to apply in our lives of service to God and to each other in the Lord’s church.

Many in today’s religious world don’t see the church as an instrument of worship and glory to God, as much as a tool for bettering their own lives in some way. And it’s true, God’s family is a blessing to us and provides encouragement, love and sometimes even correction. But sometimes it’s easy to forget that the church is Christ’s body, Christ’s temple, and as children of God, we have an awesome responsibility to use our time on this earth to make it a temple fit for the Creator.
