Weekly Cornerstone Blog
on the New City Catechism

In an effort to make our year through the New City Catechism as fruitful and helpful as possible, some of our pastors and elders are writing a weekly blog to provide additional insights and explanation on the question for that week. 

It includes the question and answer, the kids' answer, the accompanying memory verse, additional verses to consider on that question, some commentary on life application, and a connection to our church's statement of faith.

"Roman Catholicism and the Bible"

Monday, July 9th @ 7:00 - 9:00 pm

This 2-hour seminar will examine 7 Roman Catholic teachings and beliefs and their relationship to Scripture. Most are misunderstood or unknown to Catholics and lead to a misunderstanding of the biblical teaching on worship, salvation and eternal security. 

We encourage you to invite your Roman Catholic friends and family. The material will be approached gently, respectfully, and with clear, concise Scripture references. The theme of the seminar will be based on 3 key chapters in the Bible: Matthew 23, John 3, and John 17. All are encouraged to read these chapters before the seminar. 
Contact Patrick Martin with questions.

Worth pondering

"Worship is the submission of all of our nature to God. It is the quickening of the conscience by his holiness; the nourishment of mind with his truth; the purifying of imagination by his beauty; the opening of the heart to his love; the surrender of will to his purpose -- all this gathered up in adoration, the most selfless emotion of which our nature is capable.
