Begin preparing your heart as we look towards gathering corporately this Sunday. Below you will find a preview of the Scripture that will be exposited, as well as a list of songs we will be singing this week.
"26 What then, brothers? When you come together, each one has a hymn, a lesson, a revelation, a tongue, or an interpretation. Let all things be done for building up. 27 If any speak in a tongue, let there be only two or at most three, and each in turn, and let someone interpret.28 But if there is no one to interpret, let each of them keep silent in church and speak to himself and to God. 29 Let two or three prophets speak, and let the others weigh what is said. 30 If a revelation is made to another sitting there, let the first be silent. 31 For you can all prophesy one by one, so that all may learn and all be encouraged, 32 and the spirits of prophets are subject to prophets. 33 For God is not a God of confusion but of peace.
As in all the churches of the saints, 34 the women should keep silent in the churches. For they are not permitted to speak, but should be in submission, as the Law also says. 35 If there is anything they desire to learn, let them ask their husbands at home. For it is shameful for a woman to speak in church.
36 Or was it from you that the word of God came? Or are you the only ones it has reached?37 If anyone thinks that he is a prophet, or spiritual, he should acknowledge that the things I am writing to you are a command of the Lord. 38 If anyone does not recognize this, he is not recognized. 39 So, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy, and do not forbid speaking in tongues. 40 But all things should be done decently and in order.."
1 Corinthians 14:26-40 (ESV)
Our small group ministry for adults and students is called CONNECT. CONNECT is all about connecting you to God and to each other through in depth study of the Word in a sermon-based Bible study format in which we discuss the previous week's sermon with a view to personal application and transformation.
It is our desire to make lifelong disciples of Jesus Christ, and at First Baptist Nixa we believe that an integral part of this process is involvement in a CONNECT Group.
We invite you to check one out this week!
CONNECT starts at 9:00AM every Sunday morning.
