Early March Highlights at Leavenworth Church of Christ

March has begun with great opportunities for spiritual growth and fellowship at Leavenworth Church of Christ.  The youth group is working hard to prepare for LTC, which will take place in Kansas City at the end of the month.  Small group Bible studies are taking place at the building on Monday afternoon and evening.  A crafts group is learning crocheting and other skills while having fellowship and discussing how to serve others on Thursday evenings.  An exercise group meets on Monday and Thursday evenings.  These supplement the worship assemblies on Sunday and Bible classes on Sunday morning and Wednesday night.  On Sundays, Michael Summers is in the midst of a short sermon series on Foundational Concepts for Discipleship from Luke chapter 6 on Sunday morning at 10:30 and is teaching “Loving the Law of the Lord,” intensive study of Psalm 119, the longest chapter in the Bible, on Sunday nights at 6 p.m.  Click on the links below to learn more about our recent March Singing Night and our weekly Men’s Bible Study.

Practicing Love

 

Love for Christians means more than emotion. Love means action to help others and forgiveness to repair relationships. Love means helping those who hurt to heal.  Biblical teaching related to current trends and fashions, classes that give opportunity to ask tough questions in a safe place, training in spiritual disciplines like Bible study and prayer, all form key building blocks for this congregation that seeks truly to be Christ’s church, a place for healing from emotional and spiritual scars.

The Leavenworth Church of Christ welcomes fellow strugglers to walk along with us as seek healing by loving God with all we’ve got and by learning to love other people more. The Bible tells us in Hebrews 10:24,25 that a primary reason that Christians gather together is to “stir one another up to love and good works. Among the ways we practice love and stir each other up are our Food Pantry, our work with a local homeless shelter, and Bible study groups for all ages.  We invite you to learn with us at the Leavenworth Church of Christ how to be the man or woman of love that God wants each of us to be. We will pursue this focus of practicing love in the context of renewing hope and sharing our faith, remembering the words of 1 Corinthians 13:11: “So now faith, hope, and love abide, these three; but the greatest of these is love.”
