Church Requel continues our summer study series throughout Philippians. This Sunday evening we consider Philippians 2:12-18, which includes Paul's admonition: "Work out your salvation with fear and trembling." We will consider what exactly Paul had in mind when he wrote this. After all, this same apostle wrote that we are saved by faith, which is not of ourselves, but the gift of God. And he follows his admonition to work out our salvation with the reminder that it is God who works in the lives of His children. So we have an interesting topic for our evening.
If this gives you any idea at all that this will be only a stilted, theological exercise - then you really haven't been to Church Requel in a while. We'll bring this topic alive in our lives with an interesting tie-in to virtual gaming. What do the two concepts have in common, you ask? Come to Church Requel to find out!
Our evening will also include another great worship set led by Nate, along with Chad, Ryan and Luke. Chad has an acoustic guitar composition ready to accompany our communion together. Mark Shaw will be returning from a family reunion to lead our prayer time together. And Jessica Pierce will read our Scripture from her The Message Bible.
