Be of the Same Mind – 1 Corinthians 1:1-17 – 6/9/19 p.m. sermon

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
One of the key issues Paul deals with in the letter of 1 Corinthians is the need for unity within the body of Christ.  Christians cannot be divided if we hope to reach the world with the gospel.  Our Lord prayed for unity among believers in John 17, so that the world would know that he was sent by the Father.  When the church is divided, not only is it sinful, but it robs us of our effectiveness in reaching the world with the gospel of Christ.

An Introduction to 1 Corinthians – 6/9/19 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
As we prepare to embark on a study of 1 Corinthians during our Sunday evening services, we took the time in our Sunday morning Bible Class to look at an introduction to the letter, trying to better understand the history and culture of the city that Paul visited in Acts 18 and later wrote a letter to.  Understanding those matters can help us to understand the issues that Paul addressed within the letter.

Responsibilities of Single Christians – 1 Corinthians 7

Speaker: Justin P. Sivley
As we study in May and June, it is important to turn our attention to our brethren who are not married.  Single Christians have a lot to offer the body of Christ, and it is important that we consider both some dangers and opportunities for our brethren who are unmarried, divorced, or widowed.
