Adult Wednesday Night Program
Wednesday, January 7
6:30 p.m., Assembly Room

This week’s scripture: Matthew 9:35-10:4

The most familiar collection of Jesus’ teachings is the Sermon on the Mount, found in chapters 5-7 of Matthew’s Gospel. Most people do not recall Jesus’ other sermon—the Sermon on Mission, located in Matthew 9:35-11:1. The first of these speeches teaches the Christian life; the second summarizes Christian mission. In these two sermons we have the being and doing, inhale and exhale, ebb and flow and inward and outward movements of discipleship.

For four Wednesday evenings in January and early February Dr. Clingenpeel will present lectures and lead conversations titled “Jesus’ Other Sermon—the Sermon on Mission.”

Coming up next:

  • January 14: Jesus’ Other Sermon: The Instructions for Our Mission Part I (Matthew 10:5-15)


Menu for Adults: Southern-style Pulled Pork (Vinegar BBQ) or Virginia-style Pulled Pork (Tomato BBQ), Cole Slaw, Potato Salad, Watermelon, Rolls, Lemon Chess Pie

Menu for Children: Hot Dog or Hamburger, French Fries, Applesauce, Lemon Chess Pie
