9-24-19 FUMC Update

I’ve had such a great time diving into some of the common expressions we make as Christians, expressions that Adam Hamilton calls HALF TRUTHS. When I was digging into the topic for this Wednesday night, “God helps those who help themselves,” I realized that this was the way I was raised but I had to really step back and think about it. IF this is true, why would the Bible continually tell us to SERVE OTHERS? (CLICK HERE to read a few of them!) I hope you’ll join us for this conversational discussion on the Biblical foundations behind the words.
