Shorter Catechism

Join us at 9:30 AM Sunday mornings for a short (15 minutes) study of the Shorter Catechism. Each week we will look at a different question from the Shorter Catechism.

 

Study question for October 20, 2019
Q. 97
What is required to the worthy receiving of the Lord's supper?
A. 97
It is required of them that would worthily partake of the Lord's Supper, that they examine themselves of their knowledge to discern the Lord's body, of their faith to feed upon him, of their repentance, love, and new obedience; lest, coming unworthily, they eat and drink judgment to themselves.

 

Study question for October 27,2019
Q. 98
What is prayer?
A. 98
Prayer is an offering up of our desires unto God, for things agreeable to his will, in the name of Christ, with confession of our sins, and thankful acknowledgement of his mercies.

 


The Westminster Shorter Catechism can be found on the OPC website.

Adult Sunday School

The Basics of the Christian Life

 

"What is a Christian? What does it mean to belong to a church? How can we grow in grace? Dr. Sinclair Ferguson answers these questions and more in his new video teaching series, The Basics of the Christian Life. Over twelve messages, he traces every stage of the Christian life and teaches us how to live to the glory of God."

Sunday morning September 15, 2019 a new course of study and discussion in our adult Sunday School class will begin: a 12-part video presentation by Sinclair Ferguson called The Basics of the Christian Life. Each class will follow a tested format in which we’ll watch the video together and then discuss what we’ve heard. Each message is about 25 minutes in length, so there’ll be plenty of time for class interaction with the material.

The elders anticipate that this will be excellent material for those wishing to understand the Christian life better. That includes all of us, but this will be particularly beneficial for those who would like a good biblical grounding for their faith. A description and outline of the course can be viewed online at Ligonier Ministries (from which the opening paragraph above was taken).

Morning Sermon Series

The "One Another Texts"

 

Beginning Lord's Day morning September 08, 2019 and continuing through the end of October (mornings and evenings in October), Pastor Martin and Licentiate Chris Byrd plan to preach a series of sermons on New Testament texts instructing us on our duties toward ‘one another’. Yes, fellowship with your brothers and sisters is vital for your spiritual health! This is not a new discovery: our Westminster Confession summarizes this biblical truth like so-

Saints by profession are bound to maintain an holy fellowship and communion in the worship of God, and in performing such other spiritual services as tend to their mutual edification ... (26:2)

As we examine what the Bible says about this, pray that the Lord will use His Word to deepen our sense of membership in the body of Christ and make us increasingly effective in fulfilling our duties to one another at Knox.

  • September 15: Love One Another (John 15:12-17)
  • September 22: Wait for One Another (1 Corinthians 11:33)
  • September 29: Encourage one Another (Hebrews 10:24-25)
  • October 6(AM): Welcome One Another (Romans 15:7)
  • October 6(PM): Serve One Another (1 Peter 4:10-11)
  • October 13(AM): Bear One Another's Burdens (Galatians 6:2)
  • October 13(PM): Care for One Another (1 Corinthians 12:25)
  • October 20(AM): Confess Your Sins to One Another (James 5:16)
  • October 20(PM): Encourage and Build Up One Another (1 Thess. 5:11)
  • October 27(AM): In Fellowship with One Another (1 John 1:7)
 

Evening Sermon Series

Proverbs 24

 

Beginning Lord's Day afternoon September 01, 2019, Pastor Martin and Licentiate Chris Byrd will preach a series of five sermons from Proverbs 24. The sermon series is titled FIVE MORE WISE WORDS.

Readers of the book of Proverbs know that its seemingly random pieces of wisdom are gathered into collections. This preaching passage constitutes one such collection, being introduced with the words, "These also are sayings (or words) of the wise" (Verse 23). The sermons will take their cue from this introduction--

  • Proverbs 24:23-25: a word about impartiality
  • Proverbs 24:26: a word about truth-telling
  • Proverbs 24:27: a word about priorities
  • Proverbs 24:28-29: a word about witness-bearing
  • Proverbs 24:30-34: a word about laziness

The Lord Jesus is the One in whom are hidden the treasures of wisdom: we look forward to meeting Him in this portion of Scripture!
