Why do we spend so much time reading Scripture, you ask?  It’s simple:  how can we think we are following Jesus, when we don’t really spend any time researching what He said and did?  It’s logical.  Then, after you read the four Gospels (Matthew, Mark & Luke) which is the historic record of the life of Jesus, you will see that Jesus Himself read Scripture, referred to it – even commanded Satan by QUOTING SCRIPTURE.  And, if you think you’ve ALREADY READ THE BIBLE, try again.  The Bible says that this Word is “active and living and sharper than a two-edged sword” –so grab ahold of this “sword” and equip yourself in your lifetime to follow Jesus.  So here are ways to spend learning about following Jesus:

 

SUNDAY MORNING SERVICES

Find a good, bible believing/Jesus following church in West Seattle and attend their regular Sunday morning services. Most often, they have pastors there that are very, very gifted at teaching from the bible and you will learn a lot! If you need some suggestions on GREAT CHURCHES in our community, please contact us. We’d be happy to refer you.

If you are not ready yet for a formal, organized church, you are welcomed to join us…then, our hope is that you will get ready to join a good church in our area and grow there.  We gather in organic home groups for Bible Study…

Journey of Faith:

This is open to all ages, and we gather in homes to read Scripture, worship Jesus, ask questions and have a meal together. We gather on Sunday nights, and it is called “Ekklesia” (the called out ones) but not EVERY Sunday night. But this isn’t just ANY group…be ready to actually MEET people, be ready to ask questions, and be REAL..cuz nobody here is an EXPERT on God.  We’re all learning together. Text206/890-8110 for the next meet up.

 

JOIN A YOUTH GROUP

If you are a teenager and are struggling with the reason for life, or want out of a desperate situation — GO TO A LOCAL YOUTH GROUP! (contact us and we can help you). They will teach you about Jesus — and right now you’re thinking “why does THAT matter?” but it really is the start of the end of your troubles. Then, show up at this youth group and even if other kids give you funny looks — go straight up to the Youth Pastor and say “HELP ME!” (you can even tell them Skate Church sent you). This Youth Pastor will start you on the right path that will IMMEDIATELY CHANGE YOUR LIFE. Then, attend this youth group regularly. They will teach you about the bible and get you started on a new life.
