Friendship – Proverbs

We recently read the book of Proverbs as a church together, there is so much in this wonderful book to help us in living a life for God in his world. Yet it is a challenging book to preach as it is made up of so many short sayings (proverbs). We have decided to start each year with a few messages from the book of Proverbs to help us begin the year with the Wisdom that comes from God. We will look at a different theme each year, this year we looked at Friendship.

There were three main messages during the morning meetings answering three questions Proverbs addresses.

  1. Why Friendship Matters – 12.01.2020
  2. Who To Choose – 19.01.2020
  3. How To Lose & Gain Friends – 26.01.2020

Two evening addresses also took on the theme of Freindship, one from Proverbs, and the other not.

  1. Soul Winner – Proverbs 11:30 – 19.01.2020
  2. When Friendship Fails – 26.01.2020 pm
