The Men's Fellowship, sponsored by
Grace Baptist Church, meets nearly bi-weekly on Saturday mornings at
7:00 AM. Men of all ages and vocations from more than seven
Evangelical churches in the area regularly attend the meetings.
These times of thought-provoking lively discussion result in
strengthened relationships, sharpened minds, and deepened faith.
the fall of 2018, we are beginning a study of two companion books by
David Martyn Lloyd-Jones, Joy Unspeakable and The Sovereign
Lloyd-Jones (1899-1981), minister of Westminster Chapel in London for
thirty years, was one of the foremost preachers of his day.
These were originally one complete
sermon series, and had been published together in original
chronological order in The Baptism and Gifts of the Spirit.
These expositions of Scripture dare Christians to be restless for a
deeper encounter with God's Spirit. Martyn Lloyd-Jones explores the
assertion of John the Baptist that Jesus would baptize with the Holy
Spirit. The result is a classic call to submit afresh to the Spirit
for power, purity and assurance, while keeping our heads in the face
of pitfalls that might distract or ensnare us. It is a warmly
vibrant study of all that the Bible says on the Spirit and spiritual
gifts. It is, further, a passionate call to draw close to God and
describes promises to the church and individual Christians.
