The “philosophy and empty deception” (Colossians 2:8) rooted in critical race theory and liberation theology says there is no forgiveness for American racism and white supremacy. God’s Word says racism is abhorrent, but far from unforgivable. ... See MoreSee Less

BIBLE STUDY TOOLS

In the last sermon of 2019, Mark Kline encouraged Creekside to read Scripture everyday. As a challenge for 2020, we’d like to encourage you to do make or keep reading and discussing the Bible part of your daily routine, particularly for your kids, beyond what we learn at church and in Sunday School.

As one option, you can download a reading plan that guides you through 110 of the Bible’s major stories, including encouragement for kids and parents to memorize, learn, prayerfully apply and share what is learned.

YouVersion.com also offers free resources for all ages. ‘The Bible App‘ lets adults read the Bible in 61 versions, make notes, and explore reading plans and devotionals. ‘The Bible App for Kids‘ engages children with 41 different Bible stories on an age-appropriate level.

Plenty of tools are available—Let us know if you’re interested in something in particular. And may God bless you this year as you seek to equip and grow each other as a family in the wonderful knowledge of His Word. “Let each generation tell its children of Your might acts; let them proclaim Your power…” (Psalm 145:4)

EVANGELISM WORKSHOP: BRETT RICLEY

Everyone knows we should share the gospel with those who are far from God. But how do we actually reach our relational network with the gospel? What steps do we need to take along the way in order to share the good news of salvation in Jesus Christ? 

We hosted Brett Ricley for a workshop on July 5th specifically designed to answer these questions and more. Brett presented simple and practical methods for sharing your story, sharing the gospel, and approaching your relational network with intentionality and grace. This training workshop was designed to help equip new followers of Jesus as well as seasoned saints with tangible ways to impact your community right where God has already placed you.

If you missed our training workshop, you can listen to the audio here. The very end of the recording is missing (mostly Q&A) due to a mic battery failing, but you can also view the outline and materials Brett handed out here.

Brett Ricley is an ordinary guy with a passion to see ordinary disciples of Jesus live out the extraordinary mission of God here on earth. Brett graduated from Nebraska Christian College in 2010 and has been in full-time ministry since 2008. Brett is a missionary and church planter and now serves as the Pastor of Mobilization at Redeeming Life Church in Salt Lake City, UT. Brett and his wife Nicole have were married in 2008 and have one son, Jonathan, and one daughter, Madison. You can follow along and learn more about Brett and his ministry at displaythegospel.com.
