The Big WHY?

Several months ago when I was planning the church calendar for 2022 I was impressed to adopt the theme of ‘Why’ for the year. I knew that under that heading the messages could address areas that people have questions concerning the Christian faith. So far we have addressed the topics of ‘Why Jesus’, ‘Why the Bible’, ‘Why Prayer’, ‘Why Easter’ and most recently ‘Why the Christian family”. I hope that these have been helpful in providing biblical and reasonable answers that you have or your friends migh be asking. (If you would like to review any of these messages you can find them sorted by series by searching our YouTube page at bbcstcharleslivestream; click on the ‘playlist’ tab and search for the sermon series you want to access.)

However, I am aware that there is a much bigger and more frequently asked ‘Why’ question than those problems pertaining to doctrinal difficulties. The biggest ‘WHY’ that you or your acquaintances may be asking has to do with “Why does God allow suffering in our world?”   

I believe the Bible has answers for those who are going through tough times. Beginning in July and continuing through the summer at 11:00 Sunday mornings we will attempt to Trace Rainbows through the Rain. The Lord has promised never to leave us or forsake us and given the assurance that ‘all things work together for good to them that love Him (though he does not say everything will be good). Join us won’t you, whether you are in a storm at this time or not; what we will learn during this series is bound to come in handy sometime in the future (near or far).

Other opportunities to study God’s word come on Sunday evening at 6:00 when we gather to go through the gospel of Mark as we ‘Follow in the Footprints of Rabbi Jesus’; and then on Wednesday at 7:00 as we see how God Shapes us into Vessels of Honor for His service.

July also presents the chance to participate in the St Charles Riverfest Parade on the fourth. We will again have a float entered in the parade as well as wlakers handing out candy and ‘invite cards’. Hope you will be able to at least join the crowds on Main Street and enjoy the parade.

There may be some other events ‘pop up’ during the month, so to stay informed periodically click on the calendar tab on this web site and check for new events. The page is automatically updated when the main calendar is changed.

Join us if you can in our services throughout the week. We would love to see you and make your acquaintance if you are new; if you have been here before but it’s been awhile we would like to welcome you back into the family. Hope to see you very soon!
