Abide: A Ministry for Young(ish) Adults

We are excited to announce the start of a new ministry at Gashland EPC called “Abide.” This ministry is for youngish adults and adults with young families. Its design and purpose is to help us abide with one another (grow in community, encourage one another, share life) and abide in Jesus. Abide will meet weekly on Sunday Mornings starting October 30th during the Sunday School hour from 9:45-10:45am in the ministry center lobby. Coffee and pastries will be present! Our aim on Sunday mornings is to have some light teaching, discussion, prayer, and then a time for us to connect, fellowship, and share life. Besides meeting on Sunday mornings, Abide will host an event or two each month for us to connect with one another! If you have any questions, please reach out by email to Michael Morefield at michael@gashland.org.

Visual Faith

“In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.” The first thing we ever learn about God is that He is Creator. And yet, oftentimes we treat created things, whether by us or by God, with suspicion, because in our day and age, what we can see is almost always hiding something. But what if the things that we see were actually given to us by God to enrich our understanding of Him, rather than only be potential idols? What if God created us to bear His image by creating and seeing Him in what others have created? This class will walk through the gospel story using artworks from different times and places, making a case for the importance of a visual faith, one that looks for God in the things His people have made, and is enriched in understanding by them.

Questions & Answers from Romans 6-8

Take some time and read through the book of Romans and get a grasp of the book’s overall flow and argument. Ask the Lord to help us see the truth of the gospel and how it applies to us both at conversion and throughout the rest of our Christian life. Think of how we might share the gospel with friends and family and ask the Father to ground us more confidently in His truth as we study His Word that we might clearly share His gospel. You are invited to join the study of this key section of The Epistle of Paul to the Romans, chapters 6 – 8.

Pray Always

During the Sunday School hour, we will gather to talk to the Lord. There will be a short lesson or scripture reading, then we will pray for what anyone would like to bring. Whether you pray out loud or to yourself, you will find others who believe that praying together and praying regularly are important.

The Women’s Class: The Life of Joseph

It’s often easy to wonder if God really cares about us and the details of our lives.  The life of Joseph, son of Jacob, is an excellent example that the answer to this question is an emphatic, “Yes!”  As we study and discuss the dramatic events of Joseph’s life, we will be reminded that God is sovereign over all circumstances and that he is intimately involved in every detail, from the highest highs to the lowest lows of our lives.

The Men’s Class is a fellowship of men devoted to praying for one another and journeying together as we strive to live out biblically based authentic manhood. 

 

The Holy Spirit

Who is the Holy Spirit and what does He do? This class seeks to answer those and other questions about the least understood person of the Trinity. We’ll discuss what the Bible teaches about the gifts of the Spirit, the fruit of the Spirit, the baptism of the Spirit, the communion of the Spirit, the Spirit’s role in regeneration, sanctification, inspiration, the sacraments, and more. Please join us as we study the vital role that the Holy Spirit plays in the life of every believer.
