The Apostle James the Son of Alphaeus

On May 1st, the church also remembers the Apostle James (the son of Alphaeus). This may be the most challenging of all the apostles, because there is so much confusion around the person of James. There are many men named James in the New Testament and it can be a challenge to sort through the information we have in the New Testament to determine who is who. We will look at the different persons named "James" in the New Testament and sort through what we know about this Apostle who was called "the son of Alphaeus" (Matthew 10:3). Join Pastors Nathanael Mayhew and Mark Tiefel for another journey through the apostles of Jesus and what we can learn from them today!

The Apostle Philip

On May 1st, the church remembers the Apostle Philip. Philip was not one of the most familiar of the apostles, but he was possibly the first to be called by Jesus as a disciple. He was from the city of Bethsaida in Galilee, and has a close relationship to Nathanael (John 1). Join us as we study the scriptures to learn more about Philip and then learn from Philip's example as a follower of Jesus. We will be motivated by his zeal and encouraged by his faithfulness as we too strive to point others to Jesus of Nazareth, "of whom Moses in the law, and also the prophets, wrote" (John 1:45).

The Apostle John

The church remembers the Apostle John on December 27th. John was one of the most famous disciples and we know a great deal about him from the New Testament. Join us as we review the life of this important follower of Jesus, look at the New Testament writings he left behind and what message he leaves us with. We will also look into his later life after Jesus' ascension as he serves the Lord into old age, and some of the traditions that surround the "one whom Jesus loved." We will be motivated by his zeal and encouraged by his faithfulness as we too strive to "be faithful unto death, and the Lord will give you the crown of life" (Revelation 2:10).

The Apostle Thomas

On December 21st the church remembers the Apostle Thomas. Thomas has received the unfortunate nickname "Doubting Thomas" because of his reaction to the word of Christ's resurrection. Join us in this episode as we dig into the Bible and the deeper character of Thomas, which reveals one who was not a faithless doubter, but one who was honest in his faith. We will consider the proper relationship between evidence and faith and look at what that faith moved Thomas to do out of love for His Savior and in concern for his fellow man. Truly, a wonderful example for us all!

The Apostle Andrew

The church remembers the Apostle Andrew on November 30th. Andrew was one of the more familiar disciples, but as we dig into the life of this apostle, there may be a few details that you were not aware or did not remember. He was the brother of Peter, but was first a disciple of John the Baptizer and the one who introduced Peter to Jesus. He was a fisherman from the city of Bethsaida, was a witness of the Savior's ministry and resurrection. Tradition holds that he was crucified on an X shaped cross, which has become known as St. Andrew's Cross. Join us as we dig into the Bible and other historical information to learn about this disciple of Jesus and as we apply what we learn to our own lives today!
