A 6 week
sermon and study series led by
Pastor Aaron Layne
The book of James speaks to the realities of a living faith in Jesus
the kind of roll-up-your-sleeves and get-your-hands-dirty discipleship that is borne out of an authentic relationship with the risen Lord. James writes to believers who know suffering, who've faced trials, and who ultimately desire a deep relationship with God.
Join with us as Pastor Aaron Layne takes us on a journey through James in a sermon and Adult Bible Study series from July 10 - August 14.
Worship service times are
Sundays at 8:30 & 11am
Adult Study time is 9:45am
Week One Pain and Problems Are an Opportunity for Joy --- James 1:1–12
God turns difficulties into blessings when we apply his Word. The point of trials is not to see whether we are guilty or innocent, pass or fail. The point is development and growth. To watch the sermon of this week, CLICK HERE.
Week Two Dealing with Temptation --- James 1:13–18; 4:7–8
God wants to give us strength to resist. This week we will explore dealing with our temptations by knowing when we are being tempted and by turning to God for help. To watch the sermon of this week, CLICK HERE.
Week Three True Faith Leads to Change --- James 1:21–25; 2:14–26
Faith without works is dead. Real faith means real obedience. Lots of people consider themselves spiritual, but not nearly as many approach God's Word with a commitment to obedience.
Week Four Taming Our Tongues --- James 1:19–20, 26; 3:2–12
Real faith changes the way we speak. Nothing is harder to control and bring into obedience to God than our words. This study will give us some tools to begin bringing this unruly member of our bodies under control.
Week Five True Faith Leads to Social Action --- James 2:1–9; 5:1–6
Real faith means compassion & action for the poor. The question the Book of James raises is simple: what are you going to do about the problems of the poor?
Week Six Becoming a Praying People --- James 4:2; 5:13–17
Real faith drives us with talk to God. Prayer is the means to know and obey God, and has far more potential than we often realize or utilize.
