Jonathan’s Jottings

Grace to you and peace from God our Father and the Lord Jesus Christ. Ephesians 1:2 (ESV).
With the onset of fall, we have some schedule changes that we are excited to share with you. Beginning this month (September 6), we will begin a new Sunday evening schedule: at 5 p.m., we will meet for church-wide prayer; and, at 6 p.m., we will resume Sunday Night Bible Hour.
The most important few moments we could spend together as a church is a prayer meeting. Prayer is what gives life and breath to everything else we do: whether it’s preaching, evangelism, fellowship… whatever! Everything we do as a church is energized by prayer. The great London pastor D. Martyn Lloyd-Jones used to announce the Wednesday evening prayer meeting on Sundays this way: “Wednesday evening, we will meet for prayer. All members are expected.” When I was preaching in England a few years ago, some of the churches in which I preached made it very clear that if you were not at the prayer meeting consistently, you would be removed from church membership! No question where the British stand on the prayer meeting! As we begin to meet on Sunday evenings, one of the reasons behind the move from Wednesdays was to take away any distractions (like work, etc.). Even if you don’t want to pray out loud, you need to be at the prayer meeting. What a joy to be in a room full of praying Christians…why would you want to miss out on that?!?
 
Also, we will be having Bible Hour each Sunday at 6 p.m. Together, we will study Paul’s letter to Titus, the young pastor he left on the island of Crete to put what remained into order, and to appoint elders (Titus 1:5, ESV). It is a lovely little book that talks much about the transformation that takes place in one who is genuinely a Christian, not only in his personal life but also in his church life. You will be encouraged and exhorted as we study this little letter together. Feel free to bring your supper for the 6:00 hour.
 
I hope you’re looking forward to a new opportunity
for prayer and the intake of the Word.
Because of grace,
Jonathan
