This weekend, we will have an amazing opportunity to go Upward and engage with God through deep, rich, God-focused theology! TD will be heading to Ligonier Ministries’ “Discovering the God of the Bible” conference on Friday and Saturday!
This will be a fantastic opportunity to not only hear the exploring and preaching of God’s word with excellence, but it will be an opportunity to hear the legendary John MacArthur in person. Being under his preaching in itself is a treasured experience.. As he is closing in on 80, I don’t know how many more opportunities you will have. His preaching itself is worth the price of admission. Speaking of admission, the price for you TD’ers is … FREE! Unfortunately, that’s not true for TD leaders 😦
The cost for TD’ers is FREE, but you do have to register!
You do have to register, however. So, if you are able to come Friday or Saturday or both, please contact your small group leader ASAP and give him/her your name, age, mailing address, email address, and when you can go.
We will meet at church at 4:45 p.m. on Friday and at 7:30 a.m. on Saturday.
I need to turn in our registration on Wednesday morning! Let us know ASAP! – Arthur

A God Merciful & Gracious
God revealed Himself to Moses as “a God merciful and gracious, slow to anger, and abounding in steadfast love and faithfulness” (Ex. 34:6). This session will discuss the mercy and grace of God, making sure to note that these attributes are understood rightly only against the backdrop of God’s perfect justice and righteousness.

“I am the Lord, and there is no other, besides me there is no God” (Isa. 45:5). Counterfeit religions and philosophies present views of God or the gods that are ultimately the creation of humanity’s imagination. The God of the Bible, however, is like none of these beings. This session will consider the uniqueness of God in a world full of false gods.
