The Psalms The Psalms are easily found because they are at the center of our Scriptures. This is a proper placement because they remind us about what God has promised in the Old Testament and point forward to the Savior revealed in the New Testament. Even more, they teach us how to properly respond to God’s promises in life’s trials. They lead us to cry out to God, remember him, trust him, and praise him. There are many kinds of Psalms and my goal in selecting which ones we will study is to help us experience a variety. There are Psalms of praise (146), lament (22, 69), remembrance (77, 132), thankfulness (30, 32), and trust (91, 121). These psalms teach us how to call upon God in trouble and praise him for who he is and what he has done. — Pastor Keith

Trustworthy Sayings This Summer we will have two shorter sermon series. The first series will be focused on the “trustworthy sayings” in the pastoral epistles.  The Apostle Paul emphasized these words for Timothy and Titus as truths that were central to their work.  For us as disciples, these sayings remind us of the most basic gospel truths that are necessary for us to be a church committed to the gospel. The elders will share the preaching load for this series.   Date              Text                         Title June 11          I Timothy 1:12-17    Gospel Identity June 18          I Timothy 3:1-7        Gospel Leaders June 25          II Timothy 2:8-13     Gospel Endurance July 2             Titus 3:1-11              Gospel Love July 9             1 Timothy 4:6-10      Gospel Growth
