An Invitation to Worship

University City

***UPDATE*** Due to concerns about coronavirus, we are transitioning our weekly studies to an online format. You can join the studies at regular posted hours by using the following zoom link. Stay health and stay in the Word. https://zoom.us/j/9365359679 This is a meetup with a difference -- to worship God and to be attentive to his word. When you visit our Sunday assembly here is what you should expect: 1. Since the Scriptures are our only rule of faith and practice (cf., 2 Timothy 3:16-17; Acts 17:11), expect us to conduct our congregational meetings in accordance to what we read in the Bible, specifically the New Testament writings which are the only infallible source anyone has of the teaching of Jesus. We endeavor to worship God as he instructed the early Christians to worship. We avoid things not authorized in Scripture and things that could distract from the spiritual purpose of our assemblies. 2. Prayer to God in the name of Jesus Christ (1 Timothy 2:1; Philippians 4:6) 3. Singing praises to God that teach and encourage each member to grow in their faith and their faithfulness(Ephesians 5:19; Colossians 3:16) 4. Teaching from the Bible that convicts us, challenges us, and helps us to grow into the image of Christ (Acts 2:42; 2 Timothy 4:1-5) 5. The Lord’s Supper (Sundays). This weekly memorial is both a reminder and public proclamation of the death of Jesus Christ (Acts 20:7; 1 Corinthians 11:23-29). Because His sacrificial death paid the penalty for our sins, we can be forgiven and have peace with God. 6. Voluntarily giving by the members each Sunday to help needy brethren and promote the spread of the Gospel (1 Corinthians 16:1-2; Philippians 4:14-16). PLEASE NOTE: Visitors are not expected to participate in this giving. We do not pass a basket or otherwise solicit funds from our visitors through donations, fundraisers, love-offerings for the speaker, etc. If you have any questions about what we do (or don’t do), please email us: [masked]

Center City Study: Jeremiah

Center City

***UPDATE*** Due to concerns about coronavirus, we are transitioning our weekly studies to an online format. You can join the studies at regular posted hours by using the following zoom link. Stay health and stay in the Word. https://zoom.us/j/9365359679 Come and share in a discussion of the scriptures and the camaraderie of this group. Since our beginning, we have studied the gospel of Luke and the book of Acts, the first and second epistles of Peter, the gospel of John, and the books of Revelation and Daniel. We are now studying the book of Jeremiah. Jeremiah was a contemporary of Daniel. Jeremiah -- An Overview "Jeremiah began his work in the thirteenth year of Josiah's reign (Jer 1:2). The historical background relevant to Jeremiah's work is found at 2 Ki 21-25 and 2 Ch. 33-36. After the death of the good king Hezekiah, Manasseh corrupted Judah to a point from which there would be no return (2 Ki 21; 2 Ch 33). His repentance and reformation at the end had no deep or permanent effect on the nation. (Probably for that reason it is not even mentioned in Kings.) Amon his son, reigned for only two years and returned to idolatry. Even Josiah's reforms (2 Ki 22-23; 2 Ch 34-35)could not save the nation. The reforms were superficial and the people were not really converted. Destruction was decreed in spite of the reforms because of the sins of Manasseh which remained in the hearts of the people and had not really been effectively eradicated from the nation (2 Ki 23.26; cf. 24.3-4; Jer 15.4). The first twenty chapters of Jeremiah report the preaching of [the prophet] during the time ofJosiah and expose the weakness of Josiah's reformation (cf. esp. 3.6-10). When the evil Jehoiakim came to the throne the floodgates were opened and the apostasy which had been outwardly restrained under Josiah burst forth to fill the land. Judgment day was just ahead. Jeremiah was to be God's spokesman in Judah's darkest days." -- L.A. Mott, Jr., THINKING THROUGH JEREMIAH, p. 20. If you have questions, please contact us at[masked] or [masked].

West Philly Study: 1&2 Kings

South 49th Street & Spruce Street

***UPDATE*** Due to concerns about coronavirus, we are transitioning our weekly studies to an online format. You can join the studies at regular posted hours by using the following zoom link. Stay health and stay in the Word. https://zoom.us/j/9365359679 After the death of David, the kingdom was given to Solomon, his son. Solomon began well but ended badly. He turned his heart away from serving the true God. Upon his death, the kingdom was divided. Both kingdoms existed, for the most part, in rebellion against Yahweh. The southern, however, had a few righteous kings who were determined to serve the LORD in truth. Through their power as monarchs, they could force the people to act right. Yet, they had no success in changing the hearts of the people and so their reforms were always short-lived. Eventually, both nations were taken into captivity.
