Dressing With Respectable Apparel

Dressing With Respectable Apparel

He intended to embrace the opportunity of correcting a vice to which women are almost always prone, and which perhaps at Ephesus, being a city of vast wealth and extensive merchandise, especially abounded. That vice is — excessive eagerness and desire to be richly dressed. He wishes therefore that their dress should be regulated by modesty and sobriety; for luxury and immoderate expense arise from a desire to make a display either for the sake of pride or of departure from chastity. And hence we ought to derive the rule of moderation; for, since dress is an indifferent matter, (as all outward matters are,) it is difficult to assign a fixed limit, how far we ought to go. Magistrates may indeed make laws, by means of which a rage for superfluous expenditure shall be in some measure restrained; but godly teachers, whose business it is to guide the consciences, ought always to keep in view the end of lawful use. This at least will be settled beyond all controversy, that everything in dress which is not in accordance with modesty and sobriety must be disapproved. – John Calvin

Passages: 1 Timothy 2:9-10, 1 Peter 3:3-6

Service schedules have changed! Click here for more information.

The following changes have been made to our service schedule due to the COVID-19 pandemic:

We will have Sunday service at Harvest Creek from 10:30 AM – 12:00 PM and then dismiss for the day.  If you think it best to stay home then please stay home.  DO WHAT YOU THINK IS BEST FOR YOUR SITUATION.

Tuesday and Wednesday Bible studies will be combined.  We will meet at 7:00 PM on Wednesdays.  Call for details.

Sunday Service and Wednesday Bible study will be available as a Facebook live stream.  If you will be watching the live stream we recommend that you set aside the time for the service as if you were present.  We will pick songs that are familiar so you can sing along from home.  Please have your Bible open and ready to follow along for scripture reading and the sermon.

Hopefully this will soon pass and we can resume our normal schedule and activities.  Until then we will make adjustments as the need requires.  STAY SAFE and MAY GOD BLESS YOU.
