Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room discuss what it means to give generously, and how being a grateful receiver of God’s gifts can change our focus from having a “scarcity mindset” to an “abundant mindset.”
Gina Lerhmann is our guest speaker while Pastor Otte is out this week as we continue with the first full week of the Red Letter Challenge. This coming week is all about “being” – being with God and being with His Word. The class discusses what it means to “be” and what it means to “feel”, what earthly treasures we may try to place over heavenly treasures, the importance of rest, and our identity given to us by God.
Today’s challenge is to read the Bible each day, even if it is one verse. Having the Bible with you wherever you go is one handy way to help complete that challenge. To help with this challenge, below are links to download the Bible app for your iPhone, iPad or Android devices:
In this latest installment on our series through the book of John, Pastor Otte and the class discuss Jesus and His disciples answering others who have questions by telling them to “come and see” and decide for themselves. Class members also examine what brought them to church, and how we may be able to make ourselves more involved in the church in order to invite others to “come and see” the good news of Jesus for themselves.
“I am the voice of one crying out in the wilderness,’Make straight the way of the Lord'”
Join Pastor Otte and the Upper Room Bible Class as we continue our study in the gospel of John. We examine why it was important for John to identify himself and letting people know he was not a prophet or the Christ, but only a messenger – a voice to prepare and make clear the road ahead for God.
