Part of discipleship is emulation (see Ephesians 5:1 and 1 Corinthians 11:1). Our lives are to be a constant, reverberating echo of Jesus in the world today, and Jesus lived in the world as the Lamb.
Ten things that I’m thankful for at Mountain Creek in 2023.
Last night at Mountain Creek, Steve Crouse (our Discipleship Director) gave information about our new discipleship groups, to be known as D3 Groups. If you missed that meeting, or if you’d like a refresher, this post contains all the information you need about these groups and how you can join in.
We’ve been called by God to follow Jesus together, and Discipleship Groups at MCBC provide an avenue for us to do that in a more intentional manner.
This Sunday at Mountain Creek we’ll be considering the Wisdom of Marriage as we continue our study in the book of Proverbs. Regardless of whether you’re married or single, I can promise you that there is something from God’s Word that you need to hear this coming Sunday. But before we get to Sunday, I wanted to take the space in this week’s blog to preview a few things.
From our sermon on Sunday, October 14, 2023, “The Wisdom of Words” in our series in the book of Proverbs.
God’s promises were meant to bring God’s peace, and as God’s people, we need to know God’s promises so that we can use them to find peace in an anxious world. Our challenge for the end of 2023 is to arm ourselves with God’s promises by memorizing and meditating on one promise per week through the end of this year.
If you’ve been asked if the Bible was really written by God or if the Bible really is authoritative, or if you’ve just wondered about those questions yourself, you can rest assured: we have every reason to believe that Scripture is God’s Word, with God’s authority, and contains God’s promise for life in him.
On September 1, Cameron Adkins officially began serving as our Pastor for Groups and Young Adults at Mountain Creek. Even though Cameron has been a member of Mountain Creek, we wanted to take this week’s blog for you to get to know him a little more.
Remember his promise: he’s with us always, even to the end of the age. We have all we need for faithful obedience to our commission, because we have him.
