Faith Matters Study the Beatitudes

Faith Matters Study the Beatitudes

As you feed your flowers and train your trees, spend a little time growing your faith this summer. Every Monday evening, come join a group which challenges and supports your faith with biblical studies, lively conversation and thoughtful contemplation. We meet at 6:45 pm for fellowship and then start our study at 7:00 pm (ending at 8:00 pm) all via Zoom. (If your device camera doesn’t work, you can join us by phone.). We will be continuing to meet via Zoom on Mondays, even as the church re-opens.

Currently we are finishing a study of the 10 Commandments: in three weeks we will begin one on The Beatitudes. In this six-week study through the Beatitudes, author Jennifer Kennedy Dean examines the promise of blessedness in Christ’s Sermon on the Mount. Unlike a circumstance-driven emotion, such as happiness, blessedness is eternal and grounded in the reality of Christ in you. You are able to live in the state of blessedness that God has created for you when you discover the key to true holiness—a call to freedom and joy. We were made for holiness, and this core concept of the Beatitudes is accessed through a praying life—a life lived in the present-tense power of God. It is only when we continually pursue holiness that blessedness comes, and we discover the power and fulfillment of the promise of God.

The study will be based on Set Apart by Jennifer Kennedy Dean (available from Amazon for $12.80, prime eligible). Please contact Carol Forbes at coastiemom@comcast.net or 720-320-7359 for Zoom information, ordering info or any other questions. Your faith does matter so nuture it with the gang from Faith Matters!
