Greg explains more about what plural-elder-led congregationalism will look like, Lord willing, for NAC going forward.
Today the elders introduced a slight change in our church government. We have been a pure elder rule church up until now. However, going forward we are moving to elder-led congregationalism. This does change the responsibility of our members on several important matters. If you are a member of NAC, please listen and feel free to ask more questions!
Jerry, Fred, Greg, and Tyler Williams helped us better understand the meaning and significance of the Trinity and God's creation. The Trinity is one of the most central teachings of the Christian faith and one that while we cannot understand exhaustively, we must still know and believe truly.
Today we looked at the topic of believer's baptism vs. infant baptism. While this can be a touchy subject and not one that is a salvation issue, it is also not irrelevant. Why do some Christians believe in infant baptism and why does our church not practice it?
In Sunday school Jerry and Mark discussed some of what Scripture teaches about the challenging and comforting doctrine of God's providence. What does providence really mean? Does God's providence include human sin? If so, how are we to make sense of this?
Scott preached an excellent message covering the last half of the 10 Commandments. Please listen if you have the time! The message brings us close enough to Sinai to feel the weight of God's law before reminding us powerfully of the Gospel.
Greg Rentz led us for the first time in congregational prayer during his first Sunday service an elder at NAC!
