Building Blocks are 45 minute seminar-like Bible studies for building up the body of Christ. They emphasize training in doctrine and equipping for ministry.
Try to arrive on the church grounds at 9:15. This gives you time to check-in your children if you need, grab a cup of coffee, or catch up with others. Blocks will start promptly at 9:30 AM.
These are the Building Blocks happening in Quarter 3- 2018, July 1 - September 16
Location: Conference Room (2nd Floor) - Led by Brian Wallace
Jesus repeatedly communicated that the Old Testament Scriptures spoke about Him:
Luke 24:27 Then beginning with Moses and with all the prophets, He explained to them the things concerning Himself in all the Scriptures.
John 5:39 "You search the Scriptures because you think that in them you have eternal life; it is these that testify about Me….”
John 5:46-47 "For if you believed Moses, you would believe Me, for he wrote about Me. But if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe My words?"
If you desire to understand more clearly how Jesus could make such statements, consider attending the “Jesus in the Old Testament” building block. This engaging and enlightening block will look at many Old Testament texts covering content and passages such as:
-Timeline of the Arrival of the Messiah in Daniel 9
-Jesus Activities Compared to the Passover Activities
-Jesus Activities Compared to the Feast of Unleavened Bread Activities
-Jesus Activities Compared to Feast of Harvest Activities
-Jesus Activities Compared to Feast of Weeks (Pentecost) Activities
-Suffering Servant of Isaiah 52 & 53
-The Anointed One – God’s Son mentioned in Psalm 2
-The Location and Description of Messiah in Micah 5
-Jesus Compares Himself to Bronze Serpent of Moses
-The Lord of Psalm 110
-The Blessing of Abraham
-How the Tabernacle Points to Christ and His Church
Lord willing, we will all have a clearer perspective about how the Scriptures spoke long before Jesus walked the earth.

Since the days of the early church, Christians have wrestled with the relationship between law and gospel. If, as the apostle Paul says, salvation is by grace and the law cannot save, what relevance does the law have for Christians today? Join this video and discussion series by Sinclair Ferguson.
YOUTH BLOCK (6th-12th grade)
Location: 3rd Floor - Led by Alex Sosler
Everyone has a worldview, a framework through which they interpret reality and answer life’s ultimate questions. Many people, however, are unaware of the view they embrace. In this series, Dr. R.C. Sproul examines some of today’s most popular worldviews and demonstrates that only the Christian worldview truly answers life’s most important questions.
Children Desiring God exists to equip the body of Christ to spread to the next generations a passion for the supremacy of God in all things for the joy of all peoples through Jesus Christ. Our aim is to impart to children a vision of God, who He is, and who we are in relation to Him, and to establish them with a foundation of doctrine and truth. We want them biblically grounded, seeing God as the hero of every story, with a God-centered world view and a faith that will hold them when the days of testing come. We want them to love the Lord their God with all their heart, and to delight in Him forever.
