Bible Class Opportunities Abound Throughout the Week
Sunday Mornings at 9:15am
Martin Luther with Pastor Charlie We will wrap up this series on Martin Luther in December. Stay tuned for more details on the next Sunday morning class!
The Five Love Languages with Jay & Kris Risch Feeling like you are knocking your head against the wall when communicating with your spouse, child, family member or co-worker? That might be because you’re not “speaking” their love language! Love language? That’s right. Love language. According to Gary Chapman, author of “The Five Love Languages” every person has a primary and secondary love language and learning what those are can help to improve your relationships and communication with just about anybody. Join us for a Sunday morning small group Bible study, running from January 14 through February 18 in the library. Come, find out what your love language is!
Monday Mornings at 9:00am
“Pre-Game” with Pastor Steve – Have you ever sat in church on a Sunday morning, listened to the scripture readings and thought, “What the heck does that mean?” Sometimes it may be hard to find the common thread between the two or three lessons read during the worship services. Come join our growing group with a perfect way to start each new week. Our Monday morning Bible class looks at the upcoming Scriptures and takes time to consider the theme and personal application. Our conversations are often unpredictable, regularly entertaining, and also lead us to a place where we can find the “sweet spot” of God’s love and grace for our lives. Join the conversation on Monday mornings at 9am.
Thursday Mornings at 9:30am
“The Christmas Experience” with Pastor Steve – Join us in the church library at 9:30am on Thursday mornings from November 30 to December 28. We’ll gather to ensure that Christmas is much more than a holiday. This study will look at the familiar Christmas story in great detail to show us how Christmas is a chance to remember what happened then and how it changes everything for us now.
Beginning January 4, we will begin a new study entitled, “Will the Real Jesus Please Stand Up?” When was the last time you stepped up to the counter and ordered one medium-size Jesus, extra generous, and heavy on the bling? Or maybe you like your Jesus supersized! Here’s the same question: When was the last time you took a hammer and a chisel to the Jesus of the Bible and formed Him into your own personal Jesus? This study will remind us who the real Jesus is, but also give us the Biblical foundation and tools to respond to twelve of the false christs who are embraced, loved, promoted, and revered—even by well-meaning Christians.
Friday Mornings at 6:00am
Men’s Bible Study with Pastor Steve – On Friday, December 1, we will begin a study entitled “The End of Me.” There is beauty in coming to the end of ourselves as we realize that we aren’t strong enough, smart enough, or talented enough to navigate life on our own, apart from God. It is here that we can begin a deeper, authentic relationship with Jesus. Through the testimonies of other men and a deeper look at scripture, we will look at what it means to pick up our cross and die to ourselves. All men of Bethlehem are welcome; we meet in the church library at 6am.
