Gathering for Prayer and Bible Study

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Eph. 6:18).”  Join Pastor Mike and others in the church family every Wednesday night from 7 to 7:45PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors and from 7:45 to 8:30PM as we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives.  If you have a need you would like lifted by God’s people, fill out a prayer card and place it in the box in the church foyer any Sunday morning, call the church offices at (617) 825-7832 or e-mail the pastor at calbapt@msn.com.

Join us on Monday, October 7th, at 10AM for our area prayer walk (weather permitting).  We would be blessed by your accompanying us throughout the neighborhood, praying for the streets, people and businesses we come across.  It is also an excellent opportunity to exercise your body and your spirit.

 

Monthly Coffee Hour

Please plan on remaining after the worship service on Sunday, October 13th, to share in this month’s coffee hour.  We would be blessed to share with you a bit of pleasant conversation and some light refreshments.

  

Sunday Morning Studies

Everyone is encouraged to be at church every Sunday morning at 9:30AM for our Christian Education program.  All are welcome to our weekly age-specific classes:

          Children (ages 3-13): Heart-Shaper classes, which meet in the "Red Carpet Room" on the church's lower level, will help kids go beyond right and wrong answers, engaging them in meaningful discussion and encouraging them in their commitment to Christ.  Kids will dig into the Bible to discover what it says and what it means for their lives.  This fall, they will learn about and discuss; Living in God's Image, Temptation, Sin, and Forgiveness, and Thankfulness.

          Teens (ages 14-18):   Bible-in-Life lessons, which meet in the Conference Room, will allow students to focus on these four areas: connecting with each other and with God's Word; studying God's Word together and finding key themes and takeaways; exploring key themes and takeaways through activities and crafts; and responding to God's Word by applying it to life. This fall, the monthly themes are Escaping Egypt, God Delivers Us and Following God with Courage.

          Adults (ages 19+):  Standard Lesson Quarterly is a richly resourced adult curriculum which includes scripture exposition, culturally relevant examples, and timely discussion questions.  This fall, the adults will explore Responding to God's Grace (Pentateuch, 1 Samuel, 1 Kings, Luke, and Epistles)

Also, this year's church-wide theme – Listening to the Lord -- will reinforce our understanding of the parables of Jesus when we get together on the last Sunday morning of the month at 10:15AM.

 

Men’s Discipling Group

Disciple's Path: The Journey provides an intentional two-year mission toward maturity in Christ.  It's a purposeful process covering four volumes, 13 sessions each.  The Journey was created to nurture believers into disciples who make disciples.  All the men of the church are invited to be part of this study every other Tuesday night from 7 to 8:30 PM.  This month we will meet on October 8th (and discuss “We Go Together with Christ”).

 

Consider Joining the Church

All those who have submitted their lives to Christ are encouraged to be baptized and become a member of the church.  If you are interested in pursuing either of these options, please speak to Pastor Mike about making the next commitment.
