Join us on Sunday nights at 6PM!
RADIUS at Night is a place where our High School students, college students and young adults can come together to worship, study the Bible and jump into community together. Our hope is to raise up the future leaders of the Church.
If you would like more information or want to help make RADIUS at Night better by serving, you can contact Joe Pitts.

As we closed out our time together to take a break for the summer, we turned to a passage in 2 Timothy 4. At the time this passage was written, Paul was nearing the end of his life. He wanted to give Timothy a final charge to be faithful to his calling as a Christian and use his voice to tell people about Jesus. In this charge, Paul paints a realistic picture of three things that go along with being a follower of Jesus:
- The call on us all to be faithful in sharing The Gospel.
- The cost of The Gospel and being a follower of Jesus.
- The reward of faithfulness which is the crown of righteousness and final deliverance from the brokenness of this world.

How much is enough? We live in a culture consumed by wealth and financial gain. It’s driven by the stress of worrying about not having enough and also the discontentment of always wanting more. Whether you make $30K per year or $300K per year, stress and discontentment still seem to find a way into our thoughts. Money is an idol that Satan uses to lure us away from godliness everyday. 1 Timothy 6:10 says “For the love of money is the root of all kinds of evil.” So, where do you find yourself? Are you consumed by the stress…or to you find yourself in a constant state of discontentment from not having enough?

NO VIDEO THIS WEEK
In all of us there is an inherent draw to or repulsion from great leaders. Sometimes those leaders are good men and women who stand for God honoring causes. While many can be leading people away from things that honor God. In our flesh, we often either blindly follow leaders because of a certain lure they may have or on the opposite end of the spectrum we may lack trust in certain leaders, adopting a position of arrogance, believing that we know better than they do. Both of these approaches can be disastrous for our witness to the world – we can blindly follow evil men or we can arrogantly oppose good men who God has ordained to rule over us.

The Bible talks a lot about our responsibility as Christians. When thinking about our responsibility, we tend to think about the call to make disciples and share the Gospel as these are front and center because of the Great Commission that Jesus gave. We cannot stop with just verbalizing our faith to the people around us.

This week, was a little different. Zach Farrar spent some time referencing 1 Timothy 4: 4-16, but rather than teach through the struggle of reading and studying Scripture, we took the opportunity to put that into practice. We spread out around the room and spent 30 minutes reading Scripture individually. At the transition in this week’s video, why not hit ‘pause’ and try it for yourself?

This week, Joe Pitts walked us through the beginning of 1 Timothy chapter 4. It is apparent that Paul’s pattern in 1 Timothy is: 1- What are we supposed to do? 2- Why do we do it? 3- What do we need to guard against. This is the case in chapter 4 as well. Paul tells Timothy to be on guard against false teachers. He reminds Timothy that he should hold true to the Gospel because of the goodness of God. Then Paul gives Timothy the goodness of the Gospel itself and all of the positive things that the Gospel permits us to do and be. These reminders were meant for Timothy’s instruction, but they are also meant to cause us to worship.

This week, Zach walked us through 1 Timothy 3, which begins with the qualifications for elders (and deacons). Elders and deacons are two specific forms of leadership in the church. While the New Testament outlines these specific leadership positions in the church, we also understand that God has called us all to be priests and pastors in our radius (1 Peter 2:4-10). Therefore, when we read passages like this, we should not dismiss them saying “this is not for me,” but instead should aspire to be followers of Jesus who are blameless and above reproach just as the elders and deacons would be.

This week Zach tackled one of the hardest passages in 1 Timothy. In it Paul addresses the men and women of Ephesus and how their faith should impact their lives. To the men, he calls them to pray, to have ‘holy’ hands and to be men of peace (2:8). To the women, he tells them something radical for the culture – that their faith could be their own (2:9) and that they have a role to play in the church. To both sexes (and to us), Paul’s admonishment is that their faith is most evident in their home. How does your faith work itself out “at home”?

This week we continued our series on 1 Timothy. Joe Pitts took some time this week to walk through the closing verses of chapter 1 and the beginning of chapter 2. In these few verses are some “nuggets” for followers of Jesus and how we are to act (using our gifts to help build the Church) and how we are to lead (taking responsibility for the local church and for our ‘radius’). How can you exercise your gifts in the local church?

This week we began our series on 1 Timothy. Zach Farrar, our Community Groups Coordinator, took some time to look at 1 Timothy 1: 1-11 and discuss “truth”. What makes something true? How do you know it’s true? These are questions that are worth answering as we consider how to be better disciples. To answer these questions, Zach helped us begin to look at how Paul develops his disciple, Timothy.

As we launch RADIUS at Night – we took the opportunity to spend our first week talking through the hopes and dreams for what RADIUS at Night can be. Zach Farrar, our Community Groups Coordinator, walked us through some of Acts to help set the frame for RADIUS at Night.
