Why we must get in trouble
No one wants to get in trouble. If possible we avoid that. But to get in trouble is unavoidable in life. Christianity does not offer an easy escape. On the contrary, believers in Jesus Christ face troubles they otherwise would not have had. Why? It might help us to understand more about the reasons. Upcoming Sunday we read from God’s Word I Peter 4:12-19. Here we receive understanding, comfort and equipment for hard times. We invite you to join the service and learn more.
CELEBRATE HOLY COMMUNION
Upcoming Sunday we will celebrate Holy Communion as a fellowship. We warmly invite everyone connected to the ICF-Delft professing faith in Jesus Christ as Lord and Saviour to join this communion, in person, or online. After the live streamed YouTube service, we will open a Zoom meeting, so that those joining from their homes can participate in the celebration of the Lord’s Supper. We always encourage to prepare for the Lord’s Supper. But how can you do that? In the Campus Bible Study we learnt that we might do that by reading I Corinthians 13 several times and then listen to what the Lord tells us through this passage. So you might also do this to prepare yourself for our Holy Communion service. If you have any questions or hesitations concerning participation in the communion, do not hesitate to let me (firstname.lastname@example.org) or any other council member know!
Treasure Seekers – in person
This Sunday is the last part of the Treasure Seekers series The Reigning King, looking at the early church through Peter’s eyes. During the ICF Delft service, children leave for their own Bible teaching at Treasure Seekers part-way through the service, after the kids song, and rejoin for the final song of the service. The creche room is also available for 0-2 year olds. For those not attending ICFD in person, we’ll continue to send materials by email.
The next Treasure Seekers series summarises the good news of Jesus from Genesis to Revelation. After that, we return to the start of the story — the children will look at Genesis during the months ahead.
This week the kids’ Bible passage is Acts 12:1-24. The Big Idea is that Herod imprisons Peter and plans to execute him, but the Church prays and God rescues Peter miraculously. Herod dies, but the church grows.
The memory verse for the series is:
But you will receive power when the Holy Spirit comes on you; and you will be my witnesses in Jerusalem, and in all Judea and Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Acts 1:8 [NIV]
