Sunday School for Imus and Pasig

Tomorrow, Lord’s Day, July 1, 2012, we will start our Sunday School lessons.

Imus: 9-9:45 a.m. Facing Faith’s Challenges: Defending the Faith and Answering Life’s Important Questions by Rev. Andrew A. Cammenga (Lesson 1 of 25 lessons)

We’ve prayed it a thousand times: “And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil (or the evil one).” But how often do we really mean it? When you pray that prayer, do you really ever think about the devil as a roaring lion seeking to devour you (1 Peter 5:8)? Are you aware that more Christians were martyred during the 1900s than at any other time in history? Yes, that’s true, even more than in the first century during the brutal reign of Nero the Roman Emperor (A.D. 54–68)!

Pasig: 1:30-2:15 p.m. Christ’s Living Church: A Journey from Then and Now by Rev. Ronald Scheuers (Lesson 1 of 25 lessons)

This book will take us on an extended trip together. We will follow a family on the longest journey that people have ever taken. It is the long trek that God’s family has taken from the beginning of the world until the present, a journey from then to now. It is the story of God’s work for and in His church. The story of the church is the account of how God takes some people out of the fallen human race and saves them from His wrath against sin. In His grace and by Christ’s work, He restores them to His fellowship. He forgives them and makes them His children, His family, His church. In His love and grace He determined to redeem or purchase a people who would live for His glory. Those people are His church.

Everyone welcome! It will be a great time of learning from Scripture and church history.
