SPdLU: Responding to Theological Mystery

  • Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Theology is the answer we put together from the Bible to explain life’s problems and questions. How does one faithfully put together his or her theology? How might we guard against creating a “Theological Box” for God? Join us on Wednesday evenings as we consider these questions from the vantage point of three events in the life of Jesus found in the Gospel according to John.

August 14: Beyond the Wonder of Surprise (John 2:1-12)

August 21: Beyond the Wonder of Miracle (John 4:46-54)

August 28:  Responding to Theological Mystery (John 9:1-41)

Our guest speaker will be Dr. Harry Rowland, the Associate Coordinator for Congregations and Leadership at the Global Offices of the Cooperative Baptist Fellowship in Decatur, GA. He has been with CBF since 2011 with responsibilities that include the development of New Church Starts and the Dawnings Church Renewal and Visioning Resource and Process, among others. Dr. Rowland has pastored local congregations for over 20 years, serving churches in Waco, TX, Nashville, TN, and Ft. Mitchell, KY, with his last pastorate being 12 years at The Baptist Church of Beaufort in Beaufort, SC.  Originally from Nashville, he attended Baylor University where he received a BA in Business/Pre-law, Southwestern Baptist Theological Seminary, Ft.

SPdLU: Aging Faithfully

  • Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Americans are living longer than we ever have. Are we being good stewards of these extra years? How do we continue to grow in faith as we grow in age? Can aging be an asset for faith and ministry? David Hull will lead us to explore ways that we can all age faithfully and embrace the years we have been given. Because we are all aging one day at a time, this is not a study just for senior adults. All ages need to consider what the gift of aging will mean to their lives. Let’s talk about that together.

Prayer Walk

What if each chair you sat in had been prayed over? What about each place you visit or all the ministries of our church? September 8, we will purposefully and deliberately pray for all that takes place on the SPdL campus as we “walk” the halls of our church. Come pray for our new All Together worship, children’s, youth and music ministries, our staff and teachers, the Preschool and Family Life Center, among others.

When you finish lunch, drop by the information table on the plaza and pick up a short guide to prayer then follow the signs to begin. If you cannot stay, pick up a prayer guide on your way home and throughout the week, voice your prayers for our ministries. For additional information or to help that Sunday, contact Karen Harwell at kharwell@spdl.org or 404.391.4357.

All Together's First Service

  • Second-Ponce de Leon Baptist Church (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Second-Ponce's commitment to being salt and light in our community has birthed a new opportunity to connect people to the love of God. Each Sunday, at 4 p.m., we'll host a new worship expression that we're calling All Together, a name deeply rooted in double meaning—It supports how this service blends worshiping God, building community and embracing diversity, and it reflects how we, as a church family, are committed to the common purpose of sharing the hope of Christ with a hurting world. The service atmosphere may be different from our 11 a.m. offering, but the goal is still the same—to worship a living God through scripture, music and message. If you'd like a second helping of Sunday worship or know of a family, student or group looking for an afternoon service opportunity, All Together might be the answer. Come check it out!
