I’m amazed at how often we (as the church) forget to be about the most basic of things. We’ve been given clear work to do until the Lord returns. Well, this upcoming season will be encouraging to Crestview as Luke will be teaching the book of Acts. This course is subtitled, “The Certainty of the Church’s Commission.” Luke will use his expertise and wisdom to help connect us back to God’s heart for us as a people. Plan to join us, starting this Sunday, September 10, at 9AM.
This coming Sunday we’ll be digging into Galatians 5:1-6, exploring the freedom we have in Jesus. We will also be wrapping up a year of Tide Travelers in the children’s Sunday School opening time. Each month, we do a lesson related to God’s global vision to help instill His heart in our children. I discussed this on a webinar I did with Sixteen:Fifteen last year. So, plan to join us this coming Sunday.
It’s been a busy week, with some traveling and planning happening in my life. But, I’m looking forward to Sunday morning at Crestview. Our service begins at 10:15AM. We’ll continue our journey through the book of Galatians. For a few weeks, we’ve been hearing Paul’s heart for his readers. This week, Paul will go back to the Old Testament. He will use the the story of Abraham’s two sons to teach us about being right with God.
If you’re able, go back and read Genesis 15-18. This passage highlights the promises made by God to Abraham. Look for how the story teaches about his two sons. For my sermon, we’ll be in Galatians 4:21-31. I hope it’s an encouraging weekend for you. I hope it causes you to marvel at God’s work to save you. Hope to see you this Sunday.
We have many pieces moving this coming Sunday at Crestview Bible Church.
In Sunday School (starts at 9AM), we’re starting a new book in the First Principles of Family Life: Passing On Your Beliefs. David Lansdowne will be leading this book, which will run through Labor Day weekend.
In Corporate Worship (starts at 10:15AM), I’ll be preaching Galatians 4:12-20. This passage helps show Paul’s heart for his readers, especially that big aim of Christ being formed in them. Pray that God works through His Word.
Finally, we’ll be learning a new song, Not In Me.
Plan to join us.
We have a lot of things happening this holiday weekend at Crestview.
We start a new adult Sunday School unit on marriage, using BILD International’s First Principles book Enjoying Your Relationship. Tomorrow’s lesson explores Titus 1:10-16 and how the struggles on the island of Crete relate to our current struggles about what to think and believe about marriage. Ron Rhoades will be leading this book and we hope it’s fruitful in the lives of people.
We also learn a new song for July entitled Great Are You, Lord.
Finally, I’ll be preaching Galatians 3:15-22 in a sermon called Law and Promises. The word “promise” shows up many times in this section of Scripture. There’s something God wants us to understand about how He makes promises and what it means for us. So, we’ll be exploring how we can have more confidence in God and His promises. I hope this sermon encourages you all. Looking forward to seeing you as we gather…
9AM for Sunday School

Crestview Bible Church, 2401 N. Halstead, Hutchinson, KS 67502
As I write, we’re very close to wrapping up our 2017 Vacation Bible School. We’ve had an amazing week with many people serving, looking beyond themselves, and working for the service of others. We are planning on gathering for worship this coming Sunday.
At 9AM, Luke will be giving a formal report of some of the work God’s been up to in India. Our children will be exploring God’s global work during Tide Travelers.
At 10:15AM, we’ll have corporate worship, taking the Lord’s Supper together. Vivek will be preaching Galatians 3:10-14 and helping give us assurance from God’s Word.
We’ll enjoy a Noon Meal together and then have some prayer time for our India connections.
I hope you’ll join us this coming Sunday, 6/25.
We’re making plans right now for the big day we have planned at Crestview on Sunday, June 18 (that’s tomorrow). It’s Father’s Day. And, if you’re a father reading this, how about leading out in serving your family these next 24 hours rather than looking for appreciation (but I digress). For Father’s Day at Crestview, we’ll be having a baby dedication.
During Sunday School, Vivek Jones will be teaching adults and students using the Habits of the Heart book, teaching 1 Thessalonians 4:9-12 on lifework.
During Worship, on top of the baby dedication, Luke will be preaching Galatians 3:1-9 on another installment of how faith is preferrable to law-keeping.
In the evening, we’ll begin VBS (6:30pm-8:30pm). Register here. We’re looking forward to having an opportunity to serve families and children.
Looking forward to a big day.
Crestview had a new ENews come out today with lots of happenings. In particular, though, there’s a lot of activity this weekend.
Ben Cornish will be updating us on his ministry during the Sunday School hour. And, he’ll be preaching Galatians 2:15-16 during the AM service. We’ll follow this amazing morning with a Noon Meal. BBQ meat has been purchased and we’re asking everyone to bring sides and desserts (although we’ll have plenty of food).
Join us this Sunday to hear updates from Ben and to enjoy some fellowship together.
We’re preparing for a good final push of the month of May at Crestview. In Sunday School, we’ll think of the role of families in establishing habits of the heart (looking at Ephesians 6:1-4). During the AM Worhip Service, we’ll take the Lord’s Supper together and enjoy a conversation about Gospel progress with Ben Cornish. We hope to see you there (Sunday School at 9AM/Worship at 10:15AM).
