We believe that it is through the foolishness of preaching that our church will be edified to grow in grace. Our pastor uses a combination of topical, expository, and subject studies in his preaching. The current series' which he is preaching include:
Inside Out - Beginning Wednesday night, September 13, our pastor will be teaching a new series called "Inside Out." In modern day America, in both secular and religious culture, it is widely assumed that what is on the outside of a person, whatever it may be, is entirely appropriate. Indeed, the only sin in this day and age is to say that some things are wrong. Such a position, though widely held, is completely unscriptural. Holiness is an inward grace that works its way outward. Our Christianity is first and foremost inward, but if it never shows up on the outside we either do not have it on the inside or we entirely misunderstand it. In this Wednesday evening Bible study series Pastor Brennan will walk us through the biblical truth of this, and the scriptural principles that have direct bearing on our outside. We invite you to join us each Wednesday evening during the series at 7:30 PM, and we hope it will be a blessing to you.
Continue - Our theme here at Maplewood in 2017 is Continue. If the Lord returns this year we want Him to find us faithfully still doing what we are supposed to be doing - pursuing wisdom, loving Him, living by faith, being holy, living in the Scriptures, praising Him, and being after people with the Gospel. To that end all of our monthly memory verses are joined to this theme, and the first Sunday morning message of each month will be an exposition of those verses. Let us continue.
Heaven and Earth - (Sunday Evening Preaching Series) On August 19, 2015 Pastor Brennan launched a new preaching series from the book of Ephesians. It is only six chapters long but it packs a powerful punch. The first half of the book thoroughly explains the doctrine of our position in Christ. The second half of the book practically applies that understanding in a way that impacts our daily life. Join us for the next few months at 6 PM on Sunday nights as we unfold the wonderful truths found here.
