Service Times



Highlights

  • The Righteous vs. the Wicked: Psalm 112
    Last week we talked about the fear of the Lord. This week will continue on that theme. Those who fear the Lord delight in His commandments. And doing life God's way is greatly blessed. One experiences the blessings of God's Word, righteousness, wisdom, a stable life, legacy, & hope.
    On the contrary, the wicked do not fear the Lord. Their lives are characterized by chaos, instability, & bitterness.

    ABF/Sunday School classes are meeting at 9:30 am.
    Children's church for ages 3-8 will meet during the sermon time.
     
    A live-stream of the worship service will be available at blairridge.org as well.
