  • Tuesday BIBLE STUDY

    Genesis & Revelation, the start & restart of the human story

    Tuesdays, February 12 – April 2, 6:00 pm Community Room

    Led Rev. Dr. Tom Erickson. He says,"The aim of the course is to explore the comparisons between the beginning and ending chapters of our Bible, and to dig deeper into the significance of the two creation stories in Genesis, and the final victory of the Lord Jesus as portrayed in his revelation to St. John.A sample of the questions we'll deal with:

    • Has the theory of evolution discredited Genesis? 
    • According to Genesis, God created light before God created the sun, moon and stars. Since all the light in the universe is generated by stars, where did that initial light come from? 
    • Since Eve was created after Adam, is woman therefore inferior? A mere afterthought? 
    • According to Revelation, we aren't going to live in heaven. Really?

  • TRANFORMATIONAL JOURNEY: India, November 2019!

    Info meeting is Sunday, February 17, 10:30 am, Church lounge

    SMCC has a long history of sending members and staff to represent the church in mission around the world. Why are trips important?

    • To strengthen relationships with mission partners  
    • To learn in a way only immersion teaches  
    • To deepen participants’ faith with a transformational experience  
    • To witness God’s work in a different culture and a different language

    This coming year, a group will go to India. In every rural village in India, there are children who get left behind. That’s when Covenant Children’s Homes steps in. CCH selects well-established church communities and places five to ten orphaned or abandoned local children in the church to be raised by the pastor, his family, and the larger church community. The purpose of a visit to Telangana and Andhra Pradesh, India will be to witness God in action – in the growing lives of these children and the growing ministry of Covenant Children’s Homes. Interaction with the children will be of primary importance as they learn English in

    their schooling – basic conversational English is the cornerstone to their professional future. All projects will be alongside and in conjunction with

    indigenous staff and leadership of Covenant Children’s Homes and tailored

    to the strengths and preferences of the GO team.Please consider this bold yet rewarding journey to a land unlike any other.
