Men to Gather for Last time this Season- But It’s Not Over Yet! (6/13/15)

Posted by on Jun 11, 2015 in Bible Study, EventAnnouncement, men, UMM | 0 comments

The Men will hold the last Saturday Gathering of the 14-15 season on June 13.  We’ll meet from 7:30 AM until ~9:00 for some food, fellowship, and Bible Study.

We gather in the Potter’s Hand Room which is on the balcony level behind the sanctuary.

All men are welcome; just show up and surprise us!


Our guest speaker will be Mike Chapman, associate pastor at Aldine UMC.  Mike will be discussing Luke 8:40-56. The theme of the study will be:

“It’s Not Over Yet – with Christ there is always hope, it’s never to late” 

Luke 8:40-56…

40 On the other side of the lake the crowds welcomed Jesus, because they had been waiting for him.  Then a man named Jairus, a leader of the local synagogue, came and fell at Jesus’ feet, pleading with him to come home with him.  His only daughter, who was twelve years old, was dying.

As Jesus went with him, he was surrounded by the crowds.  A woman in the crowd had suffered for twelve years with constant bleeding, and she could find no cure.  Coming up behind Jesus, she touched the fringe of his robe. Immediately, the bleeding stopped.Sistine Chap-God-Adam

45 “Who touched me?” Jesus asked.

Everyone denied it, and Peter said, “Master, this whole crowd is pressing up against you.”

46 But Jesus said, “Someone deliberately touched me, for I felt healing power go out from me.”  When the woman realized that she could not stay hidden, she began to tremble and fell to her knees before him. The whole crowd heard her explain why she had touched him and that she had been immediately healed.  “Daughter,” he said to her, “your faith has made you well. Go in peace.”

49 While he was still speaking to her, a messenger arrived from the home of Jairus, the leader of the synagogue. He told him, “Your daughter is dead. There’s no use troubling the Teacher now.”

50 But when Jesus heard what had happened, he said to Jairus, “Don’t be afraid. Just have faith, and she will be healed.”

51 When they arrived at the house, Jesus wouldn’t let anyone go in with him except Peter, John, James, and the little girl’s father and mother.  The house was filled with people weeping and wailing, but he said, “Stop the weeping! She isn’t dead; she’s only asleep.”

53 But the crowd laughed at him because they all knew she had died.  Then Jesus took her by the hand and said in a loud voice, “My child, get up!”  And at that moment her life returned, and she immediately stood up! Then Jesus told them to give her something to eat.  Her parents were overwhelmed, but Jesus insisted that they not tell anyone what had happened.
