Morning Worship We come in Acts 15:36ff to a parting of wars. Even the best of friends…. It’s sad, and there’s no way around it. What do you do when there seems like no way forward? Passages for Meditation 2 Tim 4:9-10. Why might Paul want Timothy to come to him so...

Morning Worship This morning we come to a real turning point in the narrative of Acts. The church has been faithfully responding to the guidance of the Spirit in the work of bringing the Gospel to the ends of the earth, and we saw last week that a door was opened for the Gentiles. Now, however...

Book Review: The ESV Reader's Bible

Posted by Tommy Keene on

Why would you want a Bible with no verse numbers? Oh, and it also has no headings. No annotations. No notes. No references. No columns. No extras. Why would anyone want such a bible? Here’s one reason: it will forever change the way you read God’s word. My guess, if you're reading...

Morning Service This week marks the return to Eric's series on the Book of Acts, "To Be Continued...." We left the Apostolic band continuing the work that their Lord Jesus began (Acts 1:1)--Peter had just escaped from prison, to the shock of followers of "the way," and Herod, fool of...

Posted by Tommy Keene on

Preparing for Worship: Sunday September 4th

Posted by Tommy Keene on

This week we will be asking the question: What is the role of the church in the local community? What are we doing in Conshohocken? What is our basic underlying mission?

Posted by Tommy Keene on

Our theme for this Sunday is "The Sunday Blues." The Bible tells us that worship is a joyful experience. Our catechism tells us that we were created for this: to glorify and enjoy God forever. Yet if we are honest with ourselves, we must admit that not every Sunday is a joyful experience...
