 January Sermon Series – EZRA

Ezra is one of the great spiritual leaders of the Old Testament. His name meant, “The Lord helps”. He was used of God to lead the Israelites back to the Promised Land, much like Moses did all those years before. In fact, this return to the homeland from Persian captivity has been called Israel’s “second exodus”. The book of Ezra tells the story of two returns. The first was led by Zerubabbel to rebuild the temple (Ezra 1-6) and the second was led by Ezra to rebuild the spiritual condition of the people (Ezra 7-10). One of the undercurrents running throughout this small, yet powerful, book is one of hope. The story of Ezra encourages a people who had lost hope in the future. This is the plight of many in modern culture as well. We have lost hope. January at the Church of England will be a wonderful place to encourage our spirit from the book of Ezra and show that a vital, living relationship with God through Jesus Christ provides wonderful hope for the future.

Groups

Ministry at the Church of England on Norfolk Island comes in three handy sized packages: Large (when the whole church comes together); Medium (when we meet in small groups for bible study and prayer); and Small (when individual members meet together for meals, prayer and encouragement).
