Question #16: What special act of providence did God exercise towards man when he was first created?
Answer #16: When God had created man, he made a covenant with him that he should live and enjoy all the benefits of creation, but that he would die if he forsook the obedience that comes from faith. God commanded him not to eat of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil, and thus forsake his child-like dependence upon God for all things.
15 The Lord God took the man and put him in the garden of Eden to work it and keep it. 16 And the Lord God commanded the man, saying, “You may surely eat of every tree of the garden, 17 but of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil you shall not eat, for in the day that you eat[a] of it you shall surely die.” (Genesis 2:15–17)
We meet on Sunday Morning for Bible Study @ 9:30am. We offer age graded classes for all.
Our Sunday Morning Worship Service begins at 10:30am and runs to 12:00pm. We offer a children’s message during the service and a children’s church through 5 yrs old following the children’s message. Our music is band led, blended worship and our pastor preaches expository messages typically working through books of the Bible.
On Sunday Evenings we host our mission and ministry team meetings in order to plan and prepare for intentional and effective ministry.
On Wednesday Evening we gather for Prayer & Bible Study. After music and prayer, adult, youth and children each have their own Bible study.
