Pure-Good-Sincere: The Pastoral Epistles

Have you every wished life came with an instruction manual? It’s a nice thought, but for the most part we have to figure life out on our own. There just isn’t one set of instructions that can get us through every aspect of every day of our lives. But luckily, every once in a while we find some help along the way!

The Pastoral Epistles (1 Timothy, 2 Timothy, and Titus) are, in many ways, examples of that help along the way. They were written to help the Church and its leaders find their way during a particularly difficult time in the Church’s history. Those lessons still have power for us today, because even though they were recorded almost 2,000 years ago, they were written out of “love that comes from a pure heart, a good conscience, and sincere faith” (1 Timothy 1:5). That kind of instruction is good at any time!

Join us each Sunday at 9:30 a.m. from September 15 to October 20 as we learn from the Pastoral Epistles! We’ll also be diving deeper into these letters in our adult Bible study during Family Ministry Nights (Wednesdays, beginning at 6p.m.) during this series. We hope to see you at Whitehouse UMC!
