What is “Church Undivided”?
For the next seven weeks, we will be going through a study at First Baptist, Sunrise Beach about church unity. It is based on the book “Church Undivided” by Bob Ingle which in turn is a pastor’s teaching from 1 Corinthians chapters 8-10. This teaching explains how greater church unity leads to a church being more effective in loving others, sharing the gospel and above all, glorifying God!
Three Ways to Be Involved
Tune in on Sundays
The basic points of this series will be brought out in the sermons for the coming weeks. You can join us in person or by tuning into the live stream at 11AM on Sundays found (you can also view past messages through this link).
Get a Copy of the Book
You can purchase your own copy of the book at OR contact pastor Brent and he can have a copy shipped to your doorstep with two day shipping. We ask that you pay what you can, the books retail for $9.99, however we don’t want anyone to be excluded for a lack of funds.
Join a Wednesday Night Discussion Group
We will have two groups meeting to discuss each week’s lesson. These sessions will make it possible to be a part of the conversation even if you haven’t attended previous sessions or read the book, however, each will certainly get the most out of this by being engaged in every way from the start!
Group #1: In Person Gathering @ 6:30 PM
A group led by Ray Powell will be meeting in person on Wednesday nights at 6:30 PM in the fellowship hall downstairs.
Group #2: Virtual gatherings by phone / computer @ 6:30 PM
At the same time each Wednesday night, you can alternatively join a group that meets through Zoom. A Zoom conference call allows a group to talk to each other by audio and/or video through a computer or phone. You can email pastor Brent at email@example.com to get login credentials and simple instructions.
Becoming a Church Undivided
I believe there is a strong sense of unity in our church and we thank God for that! As the Lord leads us to share the gospel and to bring in lost sheep to His Kingdom, our unity will be tested under the strains of growing pains. Our hope is that this time of preparation will make us ready for the task that God has called us to: “To Know Christ and Make Him Known!”
