*NEW* Set of Devotions ~ 2018

Calvin College is offering a Bible study on the theme of JUSTICE for 7 weeks. Seven different writers from the Calvin and wider church community have addressed such topics as race, pro-life, creation care, and poverty from a biblical perspective. At Calvin, we equip students to think deeply, act justly and live wholeheartedly as Christ’s agents of renewal in the world. This study looks at what “act justly” really means. Download it here today.

In addition, Pastor Mary Hulst will preach on the justice theme at LOFT each Sunday evening. Watch them live or download afterwards.

Consider doing these devotions as a diaconate or invite your congregation to join you through a Small Group Campaign and/or Pulpit Groups as part of a Justice Sermon Series.

Devotion Set #2

Written primarily for use in your deacons meetings, this set of 12 devotions unpacks the calling of the deacon in the areas of community ministry, compassion, justice, and stewardship.

“What Does it Mean to be a Deacon?” Devotion Set #2

Devotion Set #1

The theme of this set of 12 devotions is “Live as examples of Christ Jesus” (also taken from the Charge). Each aspect of the charge to the deacons, within that theme, is unpacked using a story from Jesus’ ministry on earth. Jesus provided the perfect example so that, in turn, you may be His examples in your church and community.

We pray that these devotions will be a blessing to your diaconate.

(Note: if time does not allow for you to read both the biblical story from Jesus’ ministry and also the text, you may consider asking the deacons to read the story prior to the meeting.)
