Greetings RGCSD Family,

I wanted to send out this short reminder for two items.

Friday (02/18/11): Remember we are navigating our way through the
letter of Paul to Philemon. Last week we made quite a bit of
observations about the text and this week we will begin the process of
interpreting the authorial intent of the letter. I would suggest you
bring study bibles. The notes on the bottom and the cross-references
will help. It’s hard work but the Lord will reward those through the
faithful study of His Word.

Second, Saturday (02/19/11) is our last membership class together. We
will be devoting the bulk of our time to discussing the Trellis and the
Vine. I want to encourage you all to finish the book and be active in
your participation in the discussion and sharing. Additionally, as per
membership guidelines, you have 4 papers due. Now would be the time to
get them done. If you haven’t finished them by Saturday, now would
also be the time to ask for “grace” and see if punishment or grace is

I will continue to pray for you all and your time of reading and
writing that it would be an immense blessing onto your soul and
spiritual life. May God receive all the glory and praise!

Grace and peace to you from God the Father.

God Bless,
Pastor Chris
