This week we begin the New Year with a new sermon series:
Elijah: Ordinary Man - Extraordinary God
When we read the stories of the saints and prophets of the Bible, we tend to think of them as great heroes, mighty in the faith. But what we need to remember is that each of these stories are about ordinary people through whom God has done extraordinary things.
In this six week series we’ll explore the life and ministry of the prophet Elijah, and see how his life points us to the wonder-working power of our great and faithful God through Jesus Christ our Lord.

Scripture Text for Sunday Morning

1 Kings 17:1–7

Now Elijah the Tishbite, of Tishbe in Gilead, said to Ahab, “As the Lord, the God of Israel, lives, before whom I stand, there shall be neither dew nor rain these years, except by my word.” And the word of the Lord came to him: “Depart from here and turn eastward and hide yourself by the brook Cherith, which is east of the Jordan. You shall drink from the brook, and I have commanded the ravens to feed you there.” So he went and did according to the word of the Lord. He went and lived by the brook Cherith that is east of the Jordan. And the ravens brought him bread and meat in the morning, and bread and meat in the evening, and he drank from the brook. And after a while the brook dried up, because there was no rain in the land.
