Blessing of the Backpacks
Students, bring your backpacks to be blessed at the 9 and 11 a.m. services Aug. 17 at Destin United Methodist Church. Teachers, bring something from your classroom (rollbook, binder, stapler, ID badge) to bless as well. DUMC wants to take time to pray over students and teachers, that the Holy Spirit would bless them, empower them, and guide them, that this year might be a life-changing one.
Fall Bible Study: Revelation
“Behold, Jesus is Coming,” a 14-week Precept Inductive Study begins at 10 a.m. Aug. 19 for women and 6:30 p.m. for men and women Aug. 19 at The Enclave Condos Community Room by pool, 3655 Scenic Hwy. 98, just west of Capt. Dave’s Restaurant.
God doesn’t want you in the dark about the future. No book of the Bible has sparked more interest, curiosity or disagreement than the book of Revelation. This could easily lead us to believe Revelation is too complex for us to understand. But it’s not — if you study it inductively and let the text speak for itself.
This study will remove your fear of the unknown, give you hope for tomorrow and give you new confidence in God’s sovereignty and justice.
