Sermon Plan 2017

ECCLESIASTES AND JONAH: GOD’S ANCIENT WISDOM FOR LIFE

At All Nations we try to give our congregation a balanced diet from the Word of God. This means Old and New Testaments, relevant topical teaching, and the whole range of Biblical genres. This year so far we have spent most of our time in Deuteronomy and Romans. It has been some time since we spent time in Old Testament wisdom and prophecy.

Our church camp is on the weekend of Sep 10, and Tim will also preach in this period. The guest preachers in October are when Simon takes annual leave.
