I’m envious of those who follow the Boy Scout Motto to “BE PREPARED which means you are always in a state of readiness in mind and body to do your DUTY.” Many of us live our lives responding to life’s issues, problems, and crisis on the fly rather than being prepared for anything at any time. The Apostle Paul addresses this specifically at the end of the book of Ephesians.

He calls for us to be prepared by taking up the whole armor of God. We are instructed to put on the armor before problems come. Ephesians 6:13 describes this day as “the evil day.” The day when we are confronted with spiritual attack. The day when we are tempted to depart from God’s instructions and follow other leadings. The day when we doubt God’s truth and/or goodness. This is when we need the spiritual armor of God the most.

As we finish our series on the book of Ephesians we are taught how to stand firm for God. This teaching prepares and encourages us for whatever may come in our lives. Come on Sunday and hear how we can put on the armor of God and BE PREPARED!

"Therefore take up the whole armor of God, that you may be able to withstand in the evil day, and having done all to stand firm." - Ephesians 6:13

Upcoming Events

Children's Ministry

This week Rock Kids will be digging into the story of God changing Saul's life, found in Acts 9:1-19. The kids will learn the Bible point "Jesus changes our lives." Kids are familiar with the "bad guy" figure in movies, books & television. We want to use this familiarity to illustrate just how awful Saul was and how significant his life change was after he met Jesus. We want to encourage kids that we all need Jesus' change in our lives- even if we feel like one of the "good guys."
