Women’s Bible Study

 

 

Ladies –  On January 6, we will start another bible study on  believing God.   Join us on Saturday mornings from 8 – 10 AM to experience true faith.   This study examines the lives of Abraham, Moses and others as examples of those who believed in God.

“God is so much more than we have yet acknowledged and experienced.  He is capable of tremendously more than we have witnessed.  I have become utterly convince that we see so little primarily because we believe Him for so little. Here’s the great news: God wants to change all that!”  – Beth Moore.

 

Advent Conspiracy- Part II

As mentioned in the previous post, Advent Conspiracy encourages people to give to a worthy cause instead of spending money on gifts that people don’t really need.  Denver Baptist Church encourages you to help us support Denver Cares, a small group that helps people here in Denver, IA with gas, food, and other bills.

We ask for you to consider supporting Denver Cares with us. It’s so easy, you just have to do this:

  1. Donate Money
    -If writing a check, please put memo line as ‘Denver Cares’
    – You can drop off the donation in the wrapped box in the foyer at Denver Baptist Church or give it to an Elder.
  2. Grab a Christmas card and envelope to give to the person you have donated for.  We have made up some cards for you and they are in the foyer at the church!
  3. Think about what they would like to do instead of the gift. Schedule time or go to an event with this person to let them know that they are special and you are thankful for them.
  4. Be relieved. Not only is your Christmas shopping done, but you have given to a great cause that helps people in your community!

Please help us support those in our community!

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.
