Adult Bible Study

Currently: In the Dust of the Rabbi.   (with Pastor Robin)
Time: 9:00 AM

This volume is part of the excellent That the World May Know series by Ray Vander Laan. It is filmed on location in Israel an Turkey as Mr. Vander Lann “tours” with a group. His method of teaching and explaining is exceptional and the qulaity of the production is first-rate.

During his ministry in Israel, Jesus called and trained disciples, His “talmidim.” Their job would eventually be to bring His message of redemption to all the nations, Jew and Gentile. What would happen when they began to make disciples of their own and the gospel began to spread to a Greek and Roman world, to cultures completely unfamiliar with the God of the Jews? Follow the rabbi through Israel and Turkey as you explore what it meant to be the message of Jesus to all nations.

Mission Team Returns from Kenya

Pastors Ed and Robin and Grace and Ben Dowe returned from their trip to Kenya. So far they have presented a short children’s message and Pastor Robin preached a sermon based on some of the their expeiences. Her sermon emphasized the differences between America and Kenya. The theme centered on the fact that Americans are rich in material things but poor in spiritual ones. In contrast, Kenyans are poor in material possessions but rich in their faith and in spiritual things. They are planning a more in-depth presentation in the future as they sort through the hundreds of pictures they took. It is obvious that their 18 day trip had a profound impact on them.

Listen to the Music

Christian concerts are a great source of inspiration and enjoyment for many people. Those who attend are encouraged to sing along with their favorite artists. Concerts are often held in churches which makes the events more intimate and personal. Most concerts are LOUD and many times people STAND for all or at least a good part of the performance. The Vine and Branch Church does not endorse any particular group or promotion. Click here for a list of concerts.
