Upcoming Events & News

Dear Benchmark Family,

If we’ve been given new hearts through salvation, we WANT to grow in our faith. We want to apply moral excellence, knowledge, self control, and all the qualities listed in 2 Peter. What often happens next is that we see the habits or sins that keep us from all that God has for us. Last week I mentioned finding a mentor to walk with you through this process. Another word for “mentor” could be “counselor.” We have a group of men and women in our Soul Care ministry who are ready to walk with you, to apply the truth of God’s Word in agapelove, and to “stir you up,” as it says in verse 13, to remember all that Christ has called you to. We all need help sometimes; if that is you right now, my prayer is that you will reach out to someone today. Nothing is too big or too small for the Lord.

“For in Him we live, and move, and have our being…” Acts 17:28a

Because of Jesus,

Chris

Women’s Summer Series

Five Crowns • Thursday, June 10 • 7 pm
We are excited to begin our summer together with a one-night study led by Margaret Ashmore. Scripture offers us a glimpse of what awaits beyond the toil and trouble of this life: five crowns given to those believers whose lives are specifically rewarded by their faith on earth. While salvation is a free gift, crowns are earned. The goal of this study is to encourage each of us to store up treasures in heaven, having crowns to cast at the feet of our triumphant Lord in glory.

Living a Life of Peace • Wednesdays, June 16 – July 14 • 7 pm
Join us for a five-week study on Living a Life of Peace!  Crista Travers will walk us through scriptures that assure us lives of peace in this world, our friendships, our families, and ultimately within ourselves. Jesus has told us, “Peace I leave with you. My peace I give to you. I do not give to you as the world gives. Do not let your hearts be troubled, and do not be afraid.”  – John 14:27

Fellowship Coffee • Wednesday, July 21 • 7 pm • 37 Oak Forrest Circle

You are invited! Please join us for coffee, fellowship, and a sweet time of encouragement from Jamie Rodriguez on the topic: “Christ our Home.” We can become so familiar with the narrative of the Gospel that we lose sight of its objective reality in our daily lives. There are unfathomable riches in our Lord’s words, “Abide in me,” (John 15:4-11).  We will briefly deconstruct this incredible phrase, made possible by the cross, and marvel together at the safe haven of rest and delight that is Christ.  He IS our Home!

Registration is not required for the Summer Series. For additional information, please contact Mary: mary@benchmarkbible.org
