Knowing the Enemy

Who is Satan?

If someone were to ask you, “Who is Satan?” how would you respond? What Bible verses would you use to prove your answer? Knowing what God’s Word says about our enemy, Satan, is very important. This Sunday we will look at who he is, what is his aim, and what are his attributes (and what they are not). Join this Sunday as Mark Davis will preach at all three services.

Be alert and of sober mind. Your enemy the devil prowls around like a roaring lion looking for someone to devour. Resist him, standing firm in the faith, because you know that the family of believers throughout the world is undergoing the same kind of sufferings.

Where Should We Serve?

We joined Park Cities Presbyterian Church in 2011 with a 1-year-old and one on the way. Now we have four children, ages 9, 7, 4, and 2. Knowing how great the needs are in the Nursery, Preschool, and Elementary programs at our church, each year, we have asked, “where should we serve?” And each year the Lord has shown us where He would have us. We have loved watching the Lord use our gifts for the building of the Body while also refining us personally. He has asked a little more of us, but He has also been faithful to equip and encourage us.
