Adult Teaching Series: "I Am a Church Member,"led by our elders.
Sundays, February 16 - March 16, 11:30am - 12:15pm in the Cook Building.
What does it mean to be part of a church? Whether you are brand-new to Skillman or have been active in the community for years, we invite you to come explore that question starting on February 16. This five-week series will look at how to discover and use your spiritual gifts; how to cultivate a servant's attitude; the life-changing effect of prayer; how to lead your family in worship; how to encourage a spirit of unity; and a whole lot more. Come be challenged and encouraged as we discover our joint purpose!
A note about our church...
In the very first psalm, God inspired the psalmist to illustrate the one who follows Him, the one who delights in His word, with the imagery of a tree firmly planted by streams of water. This tree flourishes and prospers because it drinks from a rich and abundant source of life-giving nourishment. It's everything it was designed to be--tall and strong, firmly grounded and fruitful--because its roots run deep.
We've borrowed the image of a tree from the psalmist to describe us. Like a tree, we see Skillman Bible Church as a community grounded in the faith (the roots), growing together (the trunk), and reaching the world (the branches). All that we do at SBC is designed to ground us, grow us, and enable us to reach out to others and see the good news of Jesus Christ prosper--to make God known, to increase His reputation.
As we follow Jesus together, we should expect these things to be true of us. We're digging our roots deep--grounding our community in the gospel, in God's word. We're growing together--developing intimacy, strengthening unity, and increasing in maturity. We're exercising our God-given gifts and using our resources to reach the world (both at home and abroad).
Grounded, growing, reaching. That's how we understand what it means to follow Jesus at SBC. I invite you to join us--to plant yourself in our community, to become a part of the process. We're all in process here. None of us is a finished work. But we're doing this thing together, by God's grace, "until we all attain to the unity of the faith and the knowledge of the Son of God, to maturity, to the measure of the stature of the fullness of Christ" (Ephesians 4:13).
Skillman is excited to have the Zomi Christian Church, a Burmese congregation ministering to the Zomi people of Dallas, meeting on our campus Sunday afternoons at 2:00 p.m.
