State Fair of Texas 2017 – September 29 to October 22
Fair and Rodeo Evangelism have once again invited us to join them at this year’s Texas State Fair. They offer opportunities to share the Gospel with folks who are attracted to our displays, and many have still not heard and understood that Jesus loves them, died for them, and rose from the dead.
Join them for a 4-hour shift and get FREE parking
and FREE admission to the State Fair.
 For more information and to sign up for a 4 hour shift please click here.


Torah Portion of the Week

Noach ~ Noah
“A Resting Faith”
Genesis 6:9-11:32
Isaiah 54:1-55:5
John 1:1-18
 
Commentary by Mark Huey

Just a reminder Eitz Chaim does not “pass the plate” we have a tzedakah box at the back of the sanctuary for tithes and donations.
2 Corinthians 8:3-4 For I testify that according to their ability, and beyond their ability, they gave of their own accord, begging us with much urging for the favor of participation in the support of the saints.
Some early believers suffered persecution that put them in a serious financial hardship. They relied on the help of the rest of the Body of Messiah which was provided with joy. The Body has grown to what it is today and more than ever some believers need the help of others. Supporting the saints financially is a biblical mandate that translates into great blessings for both those who give and those who receive, not to mention those reached with the Gospel and saved as a result. Who wouldn’t want to be part of a biblical win/win/win situation? ~Olivier Melnick

“Simchat Torah – The Grace of the Law” by David Schiller

For Simchat Torah, Rabbi Schiller looks at Exod 19, focusing on the Gospel Order of Grace (Salvation yields Obedience); reconciling God’s Holiness and Covenant Love; and our need for a Mediator, who offers us an Unshakeable Kingdom.
