He teaches extraordinary classes for our Men, as well as, our general Bible studies.  If you are looking for spiritual enlightenment and growth, Sundays at Central will make a difference in your walk with the Lord!

We have a loving atmosphere where you are greeted at the door with kindness.

  •             After All Is Said and Done
    (Part Two)
                  

    When King Solomon looked over his life, he drew some conclusions about life itself. In Eccl. 1:16 King Solomon said, “I communed with mine own heart, saying, Lo, I am come to great estate, and have gotten more wisdom than all they that have been before me in Jerusalem: yea, my heart had great experience of wisdom and knowledge.” When we consider his life, note his accomplishments:

     

    • he had the pleasure of knowing of wine
    • he was an entrepreneur – he built houses, vineyards
    • he was an horticulturist known for his beautiful plants and gardens
    • he was an employer of thousands of servants
    • he was known for his marriages – as a matter of fact, he had about a thousand wives
    • he was a businessman – assessing over 20 million yearly in gold and silver
    • he was musically and educationally inclined
    • he wrote poetry - he wrote 1000 songs

      

    I think we can conclude that he had something to say about life. King Solomon concluded by saying, “All things are full of labour; man cannot utter it: the eye is not satisfied with seeing, nor the ear filled with hearing. The thing that hath been, it is that which shall be; and that which is done is that which shall be done: and there is no new thing under the sun. Is there any thing whereof it may be said, See, this is new? it hath been already of old time, which was before us. There is no remembrance of former things; neither shall there be any remembrance of things that are to come with those that shall come after.” Eccl. 1: 8-11

      

    Have you noticed some things about life? It’s filled with plans to do this or that. We plan, not knowing what lies ahead. James tells us we should know better than to plan because God directs our steps. We should say “if the Lord lets us live, we will do these thing.” James 4:15

      

    In Solomon’s final analysis, he says, “Let us hear the conclusion of the whole matter: Fear God, and keep his commandments: for this is the whole duty of man. For God shall bring every work into judgment, with every secret thing, whether it be good, or whether it be evil.”
