Note next meeting Wednesday @ 7:30 in the Sanctuary
For Wednesday evenings we are going to look at the book of 'Nehemiah'this will follow on form the Sunday sermon just now.
1. Nehemiah the son of Hachaliah--This eminently pious and patriotic Jew is to be carefully distinguished from two other persons of the same name--one of whom is mentioned as helping to rebuild the walls of Jerusalem ( Nehemiah 3:16 ), and the other is noticed in the list of those who accompanied Zerubbabel in the first detachment of returning exiles ( Ezra 2:2 , Nehemiah 7:7 ). Though little is known of his genealogy, it is highly probable that he was a descendant of the tribe of Judah and the royal family of David. in the month Chisleu--answering to the close of November and the larger part of December. Shushan the palace--the capital of ancient Susiana, east of the Tigris, a province of Persia. From the time of Cyrus it was the favorite winter residence of the Persian kings.
All are welcome to the midweek fellowship, which begins at 1930 with a time of prayer for the church and the world. No one is asked to pray out loud, you can sit and pray silently, adding your 'Amen' to the prayers of others.
After prayer we spend about an hour on the Bible study, and again you don't have to speak out loud if you'd prefer just to listen, but don't be afraid of speaking up, all contributions have value.
This is a very important opportunity to grow together as Christians, using the twin pillars of Bible study and prayer.
Confirmation is given at the Sunday Morning service.
Note also Bible Study @ Archie's house in Gordon Avenue Tuesday Mornings 1030 - 1200
