A Generous Heart

Read Luke 18:9-30

Discussion Questions

  • In what area of your life have you said, “God, I thank you that I am not like other people”?
  • Have you found inconsistency in your generosity? Have you been generous with your money and yet perhaps stingy in giving time for relationships or vice versa? Why and how does it manifest?
  • What motivates you to be generous today? Consider someone in your life who would benefit from your generous heart. How will you demonstrate generosity to that person?

Town Hall Meeting

Monday, April 25, 2022 at 7:00 p.m. in Fellowship Hall
The board of elders has appointed a committee for the purpose of revising the church covenant statement on marriage and sexuality to also include gender. The committee consists of the following representatives: Jared Bryant (elder), Wes Burke (deacon), Sherri DeWalt (deaconess), Yvonne Fereshetian (member representative), Bryan Gregg (trustee), Bill Krewson (pastor), Nahashon Mbugua (elder), and Micah Portis (staff).

The committee’s work is now complete and approved by the board of elders who invite you to attend a town hall meeting to hear a presentation of the proposed changes and to provide an opportunity for you to ask any questions.

These proposed changes to the by-laws are scheduled to be voted on by the membership at the annual business meeting on Sunday, May 15, 2022.

The proposed changes to the by-laws may be viewed here. The second page of the document provides evangelical resources on sexuality and gender. Hard copies are available at the welcome center and the church office.

For all you outdoor adventurers (and wannabes) we have the event for you: the Men’s Camping Extravaganza! Not a retreat, this is an opportunity to get away from the busyness of life and spend time in the wilderness with other guys from Chelten. Great activities are planned: hiking and biking, laughs around campfires and enjoying amazing food on the grill. And if you need some gear, feel free to reach out to Rob Cinberg or Dan King. Come for one night, two nights or just Saturday. Join us May 13-15 for a memorable weekend and make new friendships.

Colossians & Philemon: Reconciliation with God and Others

10:20 a.m. | Fellowship Hall
April 24 – June 26, 2022

Writing from prison in Rome, Paul delivered two letters by the former slave Onesimus. First, he wrote to the Colossians to fortify the church against false teachers, demonstrating the superiority of Christ over all human philosophies and traditions. Second, he wrote to Philemon about reconciliation and relationships between Christians who love each other in Christ, especially about Philemon’s own slave. Join us for an inductive study of these two New Testament letters with practical applications for today.

Models of God’s Creation

10:20 a.m. | Fellowship Hall
April 24 – May 29, 2022
Taught by Rollin Wakeman

We will study the biblical account in Genesis 1–2 and look at the five main models of divine creation. We will engage with the Scriptures and present scientific background about the Earth’s geological record. The aim of the course is not to convince you about one model, but to equip you to think for yourself what makes the most sense. Please join us in seeking God’s wisdom together as we explore the scientific viewpoint of creation.
