  • Scripture Texts for Q&A 12-15
  • Date Sunday, 10 February 2019
Lord's Day #5
Q&A's 12-15
Beginning the section on humanity's deliverance. As we begin this first LD in this section, still we are faced with a desire to fix it ourselves. Can I do it? Okay, if not, can I find someone else to do it? Okay, how about if I find SOMETHING else to do it? Fine! So, what do I need in a deliverer?

Not uncommon thing for we humans. God gave us the ability to reason -- so we 'reason' ourselves to death - literally.
  • Scripture Genesis 3: 8-17
  • Date Sunday, 03 February 2019
Lord's Day #4 in the Heidelberg Catechism. This is the last of the first section, refered to as "Misery" or "Guilt" or "Sin" -depending on to what section names you subscribe. We explore some difficult questions in this Lord's Day.
  • Scripture Genesis 3:1, 6-7, 17-18
  • Date Sunday, 27 January 2019
A year in the Heidelberg Catechism -- for expanding our brains.

Sunday, we are already 4 Sundays into this. We have considered the 'why' of the HC and a little history. We discussed what the HC has to offer us in our modern lives. Then, we jumped in. The Heidelberg is divided into "Lord's Day" pieces. The first Lord's Day introduces the entire theme of the HC. Lord's Day (LD) #2 begins the section on "Guilt" or "Misery" and this Sunday, we are on LD # 3

The discover & acknowledgement that we (as humans) need help is critical. But, wait, so do I as an individual. I need help!

The first step in recovery is to acknowledge one needs help. So, Delivery is not far away.
  • Scripture Genesis 9:1-11

I have started a series dealing with our Mission and Vision for Pleasant Valley. The entire congregation needs to be familiar with it and we all need to be thinking about it constantly. To help this happen, I'm doing this little series.
We've dealt with "glorify God" and "His Kingdom" ... but before I move on, there is one more thing that must be considered about the Mission statement.
Here is the full statement - which is supposed to be the thing we are doing now.
"Pleasant Valley Church exists to glorify God and advance His Kingdom"

Jesus said to him, "I am the Way, the Truth and the Life. No one comes to the Father except through me."

John 14:6
