Come & Hear TJ Malinoski on May 13 @ 5 PM

On Saturday, May 13, Rev. T. J. Malinoski will be the guest preacher at The Well of Dyersburg. His message will be based on 2 Corinthians 5:14-19, a passage which describes the desired unity in the body of Christ and the ministry of reconciliation to which Christ’s love calls us all. During his visit, TJ will also discuss his experience of being a racial minority member in an historically Black denomination, the Cumberland Presbyterian Church in America (CPCA).

Rev. Malinoski, a White minister, is additionally an active member of an historically White denomination, the Cumberland Presbyterian Church (CPC), which parallels the CPCA in every way except race; in fact, both groups follow a jointly written constitution. These two denominations share a complex history of race relations that began in America during slavery. Critical conversation is now ongoing between the two denominations which may result in legal transformation of the groups into one united institution.

TJ is a graduate of Bethel University and the Memphis Theological Seminary. He has served congregations in Alabama and Tennessee before accepting his current position of Director of Evangelism and New Church Development in the CPC. Malinoski and his wife, Melissa, who is also an ordained minister, live in Memphis with their two children.

After the service, refreshments will be served and conversation will take place as we celebrate life together in Christ. Everyone is welcome!

Christ in the Passover, April 8 @ 5 PM

When Jesus and his disciples shared The Last Supper, it was actually a Jewish Passover.

Rahel Landrum of Jews for Jesus will speak at The Well of Dyersburg on Saturday, April 8th at 5:00 PM. She will re-create the traditional Passover service and explain how it foreshadowed Jesus’ death and resurrection in a presentation called Christ in the Passover.  Mrs. Landrum will set a table with items traditionally used at the Passover meal and detail their spiritual significance. She will also explain the connection between the events of the first Passover in Egypt and the redemption that Jesus accomplished, as well as the deep bond between the ancient Passover feast and the Christian communion celebration today.

Jews for Jesus is an organization of Jewish people who believe in Jesus and who want to tell everyone about Jesus the Messiah. Jews for Jesus was founded in 1973 and is active in 13 countries.

Rahel Hirshenson Landrum was born in Romania and at the age of twelve, moved with her family to Israel. While her Jewish father was not a believer in Jesus until late in his life, she grew up attending church in Romania with her Christian mother. Before going into the Israeli army, Rahel accepted her pastor’s invitation to take a short Bible course. Through that study she became convinced that Jesus’ claim to be the way to God is true. Rahel has a B.A. in English from Haifa University, an M.A. in Jewish Missions from Fuller Theological Seminary, and studied at Capernwray, a Bible school in England.

Rahel will remain after the service for refreshments and conversation. Y’all come!

WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY

Since we have received several notifications from the weather bureaus indicating bad weather is heading toward our area this afternoon, we are rescheduling the ART for GOD program as well as Pastor Alfred’s Testimony. Please check back again for the new dates and other related announcements here and on our Facebook page.

Pastor Alfred Will Share His Testimony

On Saturday, March 11, in addition to presentations by any youth who have registered in the ART for GOD program, Pastor Alfred will be the main speaker.

I’d rather not reveal too much in advance, but I’ll tell you a few things that have always interested me about Alfred, things I’m looking forward to hearing more about this Saturday.  Pastor Alfred shares with such joy!

For example, his mother-in-law was very instrumental in Pastor Alfred’s acceptance of Jesus Christ as his savior. It happened before she became his mother-in-law.

I’m curious about another part of his story:  Though Alfred cannot carry a tune in a bucket, at one time he managed recording artists and had a profitable record label!

The Well of Dyersburg meets monthly. Our next gathering is March 11 at 5 pm at 416 N Sampson Ave. Come hear a part of our story. Come tell us a part of yours.
