10/26 – Resources & Updates from Pastor Mike @ BPBC

Blessings in Christ,

Prayerfully each of you had a blessed week and are looking forward to the festivities that the end of October brings. I was sorry to miss you all this past week, however I heard good things about the sermon and service that Pastor Steve led. Glory to God!

While I do not have the list of weekly praises and prayers, I do have a couple of praises and prayers to share. I have been one with you all in Spirit all throughout the week lifting up the prayers of our congregation in my morning Common Prayers. Praises for all that God is doing through organizations and individuals on Long Island to fight against the heroin epidemic. Also, prayer requests for the Sietz family and for Raven. God knows the needs.

A couple of resources and announcements.

Due to the fact that Election Day is coming up, November 7th, I have begun thinking and talking through politics. I shared some thoughts on this weeks podcast of the Hairy Ticks Variety Show along with a blog. Here are the links:

It’s looking to be a busy weekend at The Blue Point Bible Church as we have a film on Friday night at 7:30pm (Before I Fall based on the novel by Lauren Oliver). We will provide popcorn, bring your own beverages. All are invited!

Sunday, October 29th is the 5th Sunday of the month so we will have a potluck after our worship service. Surely this is one of the many Sundays you want to make sure you are present with us at BPBC.

Also, to keep the celebratory spirit going, I will make mention of our planning for our Halloween Harvest Day party that will be in the church parking lot on Tuesday, October 31st from 4pm-8pm. See attached flier for more information on that event.

I look forward to fellowshipping with each of you soon.

In Service to Him,

Pastor Michael Miano

10/20 – Updates & Resources from Pastor Mike Miano (BPBC)

Blessings in Christ,

I surely hope that you had a blessed week and have made use of our vision of #GrowAndGo. Last Sunday

I challenged us to begin thinking about those whom we are responsible to in bringing a wholesome image of Jesus Christ and the Christian faith. May God give us ample opportunity to reach those He desires.

Tonight we are going “crabbing” at the Blue Point Docks with our XD Youth group. We plan to be go down there from 8:15 – 10:30pm. Also, of importance is that there will be no Saturday Morning Bible Study tomorrow since we have our annual BPBC Fall Cleanup at 7:30AM.

Through the various ministry efforts I am involved in I put together a good amount of resources this week. I have been going through the brackets in Wicked and detail the verses in short commentary style podcasts. This past week I detailed Mark 1:14-15 in regards to the Kingdom of God. Here is the link for that podcast, https://archive.org/details/Mark11415Wicked

Prayerfully you have been enjoying listening to TFC Radio (www.tfcradio.org), and most especially the Hairy Ticks Variety Show which I have the privilege to host. You can listen to this weeks show and catch the other shows you may have missed at the following link, https://tfcradio.org/tuesday-at-8pm/

On TFC Radio I have also been sharing 3-4 minute podcasts regarding the Chronicles of Josephus. You can listen to that clips at this link, https://tfcradio.org/chronicles-of-josephus/

I have continued to tell you all about the reforms happening in regards to Full Preterism, not only all over the nation, but  more excitedly right here on Long Island. To respond to some of the criticism and critiques I have begun doing weekly Facebook live sessions I am calling A Full Preterist Speaks up & Speaks Out. Here is a link to part 4, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ucn_GnpPaSg

And lastly, we have begun 5Q Discipleship using Alan Hirsch’s book as a resource. We had our first meeting this past Tuesday and will have our next meeting, Tuesday, October 24th at 7:30PM. We all are called to be growing in our discipleship and therefore I strongly urge each of you to get involved with this meeting! You will surely be blessed.

 

Prayerfully some of you will consider joining us for the Fall Cleanup on Saturday morning, if not for crabbing tonight at 8:15pm.

May He continue to enrich you,

Pastor Michael Miano

10/6- Updates, and Praise & Prayers from BPBC

Blessings in Christ,

It surely has been a beautiful but trying week. As many of us are still reeling from the events that took place last Sunday evening in Las Vegas, we praise God for those who were willing to risk their own lives to help, and are continuing. I know our prayers have been in one accord all week. I must share what I read and was inspired by in Common Prayer this morning:

“Loving God, even in the midst of the world’s pain and sorrow, we can encounter Your joy. Show us that such joy comes when we are caught up in works of mercy and find ourselves unable to distinguish between our blessings and those of our brothers and sisters. Amen”

May we continue to pray that we will continue to see the fruit of the Gospel, the healing of the nations.

On Sunday I had shared about the “Word of God”, I promised a list of verses and not only will I list them, but we will go through some of them in our Saturday morning Bible Study at 9AM. Here is the list: Genesis 15:1 (Psalm 18:30; Proverbs 30:5-6); Exodus 9:18-30; Numbers 15:17-31; Deuteronomy 18:13=-22’ Deuteronomy 30:1-3, 14; 1 Samuel 3:1,7 (Amos 8:11); Psalm 12:6-7; Psalm 33:4-12; Psalm 119; Proverbs 30:5-6; Isaiah 55:8-11; Jeremiah 1:9-10; Matthew chapter 13; Mark chapter 7; John chapter 1 (cf. 1 John 1:1; Revelation 19:13); John chapter 8; John 17:14, 17; 2 Timothy 3:16-4:4; Titus 1:8-9; Hebrews 1:1; Hebrews 4:12; 2 Peter 1:22-25

 

Also, this week I put out two videos for the series I have been doing on Facebook Live. In part 2 I dealt with the “atonement question”, and in part 3 I deal with the “ages”. You can now watch the videos on YouTube at the following links (part 2  & 3):
