Bible Study Opportunities

There are many opportunities for Christian study in the beginning of 2014.  Consider participating in some of the following:

 

Lenten Study:  Longing to Pray:  How the Psalms Teach Us to Talk With God, beginning on March 11 at 6:30 pm.  This will be a six week study. (Rev. Linda)

 

Disciples and Other Sinners by Ronn Kerr is based on the popular new concept in adult study programs — powerful Biblically-accurate stories written in first person from the perspective of real New Testament people. In Disciples and Other Sinners, each of the thirteen weekly class sessions revolves around a story by a single character in the life of Jesus. Peter. John the Baptist. Mary Magdalene. Mary, Jesus' Mother. Joseph. Pilate. John of Zebedee. Herod Antipas. Caiaphas. Mary of Bethany. Judas. Nicodemus. Levi. In all, thirteen different Gospel characters are described in the Bible-based stories.

Each story is a first-person account by the key character. Each is Biblically accurate and filled with detail about life in First Century Palestine. Students learn significant details about the individual characters, their motives, and lifestyles, as well as learning how the people lived and worked and worshiped. A primary impact on students is that they come to understand the New Testament figures as real people living in the real world.

Test results on this study proved that older youth and adult students truly enjoyed reading and preparing for classroom sessions. And, they felt the format helped them learn much more about Jesus as well as about the many people around him. This study meets on Tuesday evenings at 7:30 pm and repeats on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 am. (Rev. Carr)

 

Continuing throughout the year:

 

Friends In Faith, an evening Bible study, held monthly in Rev. Linda’s home. We are currently studying Lord, Teach Us, a study on the Lord’s Prayer and the Christian life, by William Willamon, author and professor of Christian ministry at Duke University. This group meets on Fridays from 6:00 p.m.- 8:30 p.m. (Rev. Linda)

 

Cover To cover, a monthly day-time group, provides discussion on a selected book. Our current selection is Just Like Jesus, by Max Lucado, pastor and best-selling author. Meeting on Wednesdays, this group meets from 10:30 a.m. – 12:00 noon. (Rev. Linda)

 

So, flex your spiritual muscles and join us for one, or more, of these study opportunities.
