Study Guide | 1st John 2.12-17

Greetings,

Here's the Study Guide for our passage this week 1st John 2.12-17, along with a reminder and a note.

The reminder is regarding the Town Hall meetings scheduled for this evening at 7pm, Sunday, June 23rd after the 10:30am worship service (approximately 11:40am), and Wednesday, June 26th at 7pm. These meetings will offer input regarding our denomination and why some are choosing to leave and others to stay, and question and answer time.

On Wednesday, June 26th we will also have an opportunity to hear from and ask questions of Rev. Dr. Steve Yamaguchi, the Presbytery Pastor of the Los Ranchos Presbytery.

I hope you have been able to read through the “Perspectives Paper” form the Session and that you will provide the input that the Session is asking for. You can return your Response Form to the office, drop it in the offering plate, mail it in, or hand it to a pastor or Elder. Thank you!

A note: I have been serving as the Chair of an Administrative Commission that is working with the remaining congregation of the First United Presbyterian Church in downtown Long Beach as they face the reality that their ministry of over 105 years is now coming to an end. Their leaders meet on the third Sunday at noon which is why I have had to leave our worship service early on those weeks. If you think of it, please pray for the handful of people who are struggling with the realization that their church will be closing soon. Ask God to lead them to a place where they can continue to worship and have an impact on their community.

Thanks very much,
Pastor Jim
