1/19 – Weekly Update from The Blue Point Bible Church

Blessings in Christ,

Prayerfully, each of you had a prayer-led and God-glorifying week. I am excited that in most of our study groups and most of my ministerial efforts we are focused on seeing the prophetic details of the Genesis creation account. The Blue Point Bible Church truly exemplifies “A Thinking Faith”.

Here are some announcements for this week:

The Pro-Seafield Meeting that was mentioned in the bulletin this past Sunday has been cancelled. More information will be provided at a later date.

This Saturday, Jan. 20th, we will have a short Bible study (9am-10am), and for those interested, some of us will be going on a local hike “on the wild side”.  We will explore some preserved Open Space at 10:00 am (That’s Jan.-20th).  It’s the Woodlane that surround the “Vineyards at Blue Point” Luxury Condo’s on Sunrise Hwy.  Our route will consist of “light bushwhack” and half along existing trails & some cleared construction areas, the route’s between 1 1/2 – 2 miles in length, a big loop.  The long range forecasts are looking pretty good (but this is a week out, who knows 100%).  Yes dogs welcomed, on a leash.  ** The actual Trails are not there yet, hey we’re explorers!!!

Also, as mentioned a few times, our BPBC Annual Meeting is set for Friday, January 26th @ 7PM.

There will be no XD Youth Party this month.

 

In bringing this update to a close, I want to encourage you to find some time to listen to the 1/16 episode of the Hairy Ticks Variety Show. I had the privilege of discussing Genesis chapter 1 with Mr. Travis Finley of RethinkingRevelation.com. Here is a link to the show,  https://www.spreaker.com/user/10014082/1-16-2018

With many blessings, through our Lord Jesus,

1/12- Weekly Update from The Blue Point Bible Church

Blessings in Him.

Prayerfully this week brought blessings and clarity into your life, all by the grace of God and for His glory. I know that I am excited that we have begun, and I get to prepare for, our sermon series “Thinking Thru Scripture”. God willing, each of you read through Genesis 1 and answered some of the bulletin questions.

Tomorrow in our Saturday Morning Bible Study at 9am, we will be going a bit deeper into the historical and textual context of Genesis chapters 1-3. Specifically, we will be taking a look at the similarities and differences between the different Ancient Near Eastern writings such as the Book of Genesis, the Enuma Elish, and the Ras Shamra texts. Surely this study will be a blessing to understanding the doctrine of beginnings (protology). Consider joining us!

Also, this time of year brings about planning and discussion for our BPBC Annual Meeting which is on Friday, January 26th @ 7PM. And of course, we have begun planning for our annual Bible conference on March 23rd-25th, 2018 with the theme “The Crossroads of Preterism”.

It’s looking to be yet another God-glorifying and church-edifying year!

Here are our corporate praises & prayers as of Sunday, January 7th, 2018:

Kevin lifted up praise for answered prayer as well as the privilege of knowing and being influenced by the membership at BPBC. He lifted up praise for Denise, and asked that God continues to bless them.

Sandy lifted up praise and continued prayer for healing for her nephew Michael. Lord, keep his attitude on praising you!

Terri lifted up praise for answered prayers, and the blessing of having Wayne and her mom in her life.  She also made mention of specific petition for the Roberts family as they mourn the passing of Mr. John Roberts.

Vicki praise God for the gift of salvation and answered prayer. She praised God for BPBC and asked that He continue to increase our knowledge of Him.

Pastor Mike praised God for and prayed for the influence of Mr. Ed Stevens and the International Preterist Association. He praised God for those he interacted with throughout the week and prayed that God would continue to lead him to be a blessing to others in the week to come. He also lifted up prayers for Meredith as she is dealing with Bronchitis, as well as prayers for a sister named Esther who is in need of a heart transplant.

May God be glorified through our prayers. In the mighty name of Jesus.

 

I look forward to seeing you all this weekend. Thinking Thru Scripture promises to be a rewarding experience as we grow in the grace and knowledge of Him (2 Peter 3:18).

With an ever-increasing love,
Pastor Michael Miano

Blessings in Christ,

I sure hope this has been a powerful week, as this is just the first week of our new year, yet I pray answered prayers and fruit for His glory is increasing in you lives. I know many of us professed to end 2017 strong, just so we can maximize blessings and edification in 2018. To God be the glory.

Tomorrow morning Bible study is cancelled. I will be going to and have invited our congregation to a grief seminar being held at Bayport UMC. Visit the following link for more details, https://us3.campaign-archive.com/?u=303a92991e9651da99b4810ed&id=bb4cc35a38
