The 6pm sermon library from South City C3

THE BOOK OF ESTHER

____

The Book of Esther is unique in that it is the only book of the Bible that does not mention God directly. On its face, this is strange. But as the story progresses, God's unseen hand and His working behind the scenes appears to come into focus. The aim of this evening service series is to explore the message of the Book of Esther, which seems to be that whether God is seen or unseen, He is always working to bring about His purposes. 

GOD IS... 3X7

____

In this special 3x7 night, we heard from 3 members of our community who each shared a 7 minute message. Izi Coleman, Stuart Moorhouse, and Georgia Fretwell each explored a different aspect of who God is: God is Our Comforter, God is Merciful, and God is Peace.

THE PRESENTS OF GOD

____

In this series, we are exploring the spiritual gifts that God gives: the prophetic gifts, the serving gifts, the gifts of faith, healing, and miracles, the gift of tongues, and the gift of discerning of spirits. The aim of the series is to invite you into greater experience of the spiritual gifts, to equip you to understand them, and to empower you to move in them.

NEW WINE

THE GOOD LIFE

Psalm 16:2 says, "apart from you I have no good thing." Listen, as Jonty explains how this phrase makes sense of all of our lives.

IT'S NOT THE END OF THE WORLD

____

According to the Bible, the "End of the World" isn't really the end after all. Rather, it is the period of time in which this present age will transition into the age to come. Jesus, who once came to the earth as a suffering servant will return as a conquering King. This series will explore key questions related to the End Times and give a general understanding of what Christians ought to know about the so-called "last days."

GET READY

____

If we try and live life with ungodly attitudes we will struggle. We will hate it and we might even give up because we think it is too hard. However, If we have a Christ-like perspective then we can endure and even enjoy all that will come about. In Luke 12-14, Jesus gets his followers ready with the right mindsets so they can face anything.
