Maundy Thursday Service 2017

The word Maundy is a loan word from Latin, and it means “Mandate or command.” The ‘mandate’ that we celebrate on Maundy Thursday is Jesus’ command to wash one another’s feet. Jesus gave this command to his first disciples at the last supper. So this Maundy Thursday service is a night we set aside to remember Jesus’ humility in serving the disciples by washing their feet and giving us an example to follow in serving one another. In this service we focus on Jesus’ death in our place.

Faith In Our Doubts

Faith in the Midst of Suffering

Job 38:1-3

This week in the Faith In Our Doubts series, we’re taking a look at the most powerful circumstance that can sow seeds of doubt into our lives: suffering without reason. We will look at the book of Job with a sermon entitled “Words Without Knowledge” (Job 38.1-3). It’s not by accident that when we endure a trial, or unexpected suffering invades our lives, our hearts ask ‘Why?’ In God’s great kindness, he reveals himself to us, so we humbly trust in his goodness, even when we might not have a reason for the pain. Along with the series resources below, I highly recommend the book How Long, Oh Lord? by D.A. Carson. This book has been a powerful help to my heart to prepare me for suffering (cause it will come), and comfort me in the midst of painful trials. SERMON SERIES RESOURCES Check out the following resources that go along with the Faith In Our Doubts series, available for purchase in the café area of the Commons: Reason for God and Making Sense of God by Tim Keller The Skeptical Believer by Daniel Taylor
