MURP 0089: Pleasing People, Pleasing God

Join Pastor Otte and Messiah’s Upper Room Bible Class as we continue our journey through the book of John. This week we complete Chapter Five with a discussion on what it means to be a people pleaser, to be self-pleasing, and why, in our efforts to do what is pleasing God, we may end up displeasing others.

The class then jumps into Chapter Six of John where Jesus performs the miracle of feeding the 5000, and how we as humans may take a more limited viewpoint and look at the practical capabilities in life. The class compares that against God’s unlimited viewpoint and limitless possibilities God can accomplish.

MURP 0066: Come And See

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.
