Dr. Wayne Cook explores the implications of Galatians1:6-10 Sunday, September 13, 10 a.m. In the New Testament there were several challenges to the faith.
The two most prominent were the Judaizers, who insisted that Gentiles must become Jews before they could become Christians; and the Gnostics who wanted to combine Greek philosophy with Christianity. Dr. Cook will detail how these intellectual positions have influenced our current time, and how they may have lessened the power of the Gospel to save.
Recorded services are available on facebook.com/lpcchapala, and on www.lpcchapala.org. Devotionals are posted Tuesday and Thursday.

Matt Aslpaugh will talk about “Striving for Utopia: Unitarian and Universalist Intentional Communities” at the Sunday, September 13, 10:30 a.m., service.
The 19th century was a time of fervent religious exploration in the US and Canada, and many intentional communities were founded by religious leaders or denominations during that time. Few such communities survived long, and only a handful survive today. We will explore three Unitarian and Universalist intentional, idealistic communities, their founders, their reasons for being, and how they ended. In these utopias there may be lessons for us as we try to live in community (however broadly we define that community).

Abundant Life Church
On your mark… get set… go. At the beginning of the race everyone is ready to go and most anticipate doing well. It isn’t until later when the true winner will be determined. The same is true in our walk with Christ. Jesus warns us that most of the seed sown will never reach a harvest in the lives of those who hear the message. We don’t want to be like that. Is it up to us? Sunday, September 13, Pastor Gary maps a good race strategy so that we can run with perseverance the race that Jesus marked out for us.
The service is limited to 50 people, so be one of the first to arrive. Those who cannot be with us in person will enjoy our services both on our Facebook page as well as our YouTube channel and at abundantlifechapala.com.
