Paul's First Letter to the Thessalonian church

This series of studies, supplementing our preaching on a Sunday morning, gave plenty of 'food for thought' as we sought to discern God's future vision for us here at Emmanuel. As we wrestle with God's  word it both challenges us and strengthens our faith as we allow His Spirit to shape our lives. In First Thessalonians:

1- Paul gives us a model for mission and ministry, focusing on issues such as: self-giving; preferring the needs of others; and prayerful love.

2 - Paul also gives us a vision for being church, examining important issues of: evangelism; pastoral care; ethics and morals; fellowship, obedience; and future hope.

3 - Throughout this book, Paul repeatedly returns to the foundational doctrines of the Christian faith: 'Christ has died, Christ is Risen, and Christ will come again.'
