The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness

Thursday Morning Bible Study 7:00 AM

To be human is to desperately need forgiveness. And not only God’s. Real forgiveness is vital for healthy, strong relationships between husbands and wives, parents and children, friends, co-workers, and everyone in between.

But what’s the difference between forgiving someone and tolerating sin? And how should you and your church respond when a professing believer refuses to repent? How does modern psychology line up with God’s Word when it comes to healing damaged relationships?

The Freedom and Power of Forgiveness explores the issues thoughtfully and thoroughly.

The Book of James

Wednesday Evening Bible Study 7:00 PM

What is God doing in the midst of all this? This is a question that you have probably asked at some point during the storms of life. Especially in this time, it can be easy for us as sinners saved by grace to lose sight of the goodness and mercy of God towards us through Jesus Christ. But James reminds us what God is doing in the midst of our suffering for our joy. Join us as we see what God has to say about how we can practically live out our faith as men in the midst of our trials of various kinds.

About the teacher: Alex has been attending Cedar Crest since he was a child. But it was not until early high school that the Lord used relationships in the youth group and the faithful preaching of the gospel to convict him of his sins and draw him to faith in Christ. Because God has used vessels in his life to save Him, Alex was given an ambition to pursue ministry at the age of 18. He desires that others would also treasure and serve King Jesus with their lives. In the Spring of 2019, Alex graduated from Lancaster Bible College with B.A. in Pre-Seminary. He is very passionate about sharing the gospel and seeing Christ’s fame spread to every nation, tribe, and tongue to the glory of God.
