Advent Conspiracy

Advent Conspiracy encourages people to worship Jesus fully as they spend less, give more, and love all. We, as a church, want to encourage you to do the same. In short, this is how it works: Consider how much you typically spend at Christmas. Instead of buying gifts for people, take that money and donate it. Then at Christmas time, you can give them a card and let them know that you donated it to a certain cause in their name.

This Christmas season, Denver Baptist Church is going to be supporting Denver Cares. Denver Cares is a small group in Denver, IA, dedicated to helping those in our own community. They help with gas, food, and other bills. Jesus sought, loved, and helped the least of these.

We ask for you to consider this whole advent conspiracy concept and help us support Denver Cares. Contact Denver Baptist Church if you want to know more! We hope and pray that you have a blessed Christmas, celebrating Jesus, “the Word that became flesh and dwelt among us, and we have seen his glory, glory as the the only Son from the Father, full of grace and truth” (John 1:14).

Completion

Starting this Sunday, Sept 10th, I will begin a sermon series thought the book  of Philippians titled, “Completion.” The title is based off of Philippians 1:6, “And I am sure of this, that He who began a good work in you will bring it to completion at the day of Jesus Christ.” The idea is that when we are born again we have not arrived. When we are born again, we gain the DNA of Christ much like an acorn has the DNA of an Oak Tree. Like an acorn, we must germinate, get the proper nutrients and water in order to grow into in Oak Tree, so we must germinate in our faith and gain the proper spiritual nutrients to grow into the Oak Tree – the likeness of Jesus Christ.  My hope for this sermon series  is that it bears a lot of fruit in yourself and in the church. Please also read through the book of Philippians a couple of times so that it is on your heart as we begin.

Under the Surface

In Adult Sunday School this fall , we are going to be looking under the surface.  We have a tendency of putting on facades and not being real and honest with what is under the surface.  Vulnerability and authenticity is God’s means for true and lasting healing as well as gospel community.  So, our goal is to really use this time Sunday morning to go under the surface with ourselves and each other.  

Church Picnic

Sunday, September 10, at 11:00 AM (Right after services)

All are welcome to come visit our congregation and pastor at this church picnic! We will be at the Denver City Park (Cyclone City).  Feel free to bring a salad or desert, but it is not a requirement.  We just want you to come fellowship with us!

Women’s Bible Study- Armor of God

 This bible study will begin on September 16, 2017  at 8:00 – 9:30 AM.  It will be a 7 week study based on Priscilla Shirer’s study, ‘The Armor of God.’

The series addresses the invisible war that rages on around us in every aspect of our lives.  It wreaks havoc on everything:  our hearts, our minds, our marriages, our children, our relationships, our future.

Ladies, come join us in learning how to put on the armor of God and develop a strategy of arming ourselves in this every day war.
