Many of us had our first look at the newly installed carpet in the teen room Wednesday evening. Pastor Giardino is looking forward to many new additions to the room in the coming days and weeks, including window treatments and Sam Gipp posters to be hung on the walls. One other mention by our pastor was his hope to see 200 in attendance during a Sunday morning service. He encouraged us to invite a friend to church.
Our music special saw Rachel Overhiser singing “Lord, I Need To” with Michael G. accompanying her on the piano. Pastor mentioned that the song was written by Rod Hamilton of Majesty Music. We also enjoyed the piano playing of Gail H. during the offering.
Brother Gabriel Gonzalez took the spotlight during the second half of service, providing a wrap-up of his presentation on Seventh Day Adventists (SDA). He listed four ingredients that lead a church into heresy: unaccountability, pride, blind followship, and misplaced ambitions. Bro. Gabriel then lead us through major errors in the SDA church using many scripture verses to directly challenge and shoot down their false doctrines. Among these were sanctuary doctrine, investigative judgment, Sabbath keeping, and the spirit of prophecy. SDA believes that their founder, Ellen G. White, was a prophet.
Don’t forget that a library of these Wednesday evening Cult Series classes is being kept here on the church blog. Look for the link “Cult Series Library” under the heading “Pages” to the right of this article.
