Sunday Morning Bible Class
Now – November 20
Join our study of the missionary journeys of Paul. It all started when Jesus appeared to Saul on the road to Damascus and struck him blind… and the blindness lasted three days. That action got his attention. Jesus said of Paul, “he is a chosen instrument of mine to carry my name before the Gentiles and kings and the children of Israel.” Acts 9:15
Plan to come and join us Sunday mornings at 9:15am and learn about Paul and the early church. Saul became the missionary that we know of in Acts several years after Jesus appeared to him. Where did he go? What happened to him? How did he become an apostle like Peter, James, and John? What were the “marks” of an apostle? Video clips will show the places and provide a better understanding of how the early church came to life. Come and grow in faith together
“Sneak Peek” Bible Study & Social
9am – 10am
We’re getting familiar with the Scriptures for the upcoming Sunday! Our pastors will lead a discussion where we dissect the common themes throughout the readings and look for the personal “sweet spot” that encourages and challenges us. Each Monday we will wrestle with the Scripture together for an hour, from 9:00am to 10:00am in the fellowship hall, and after that all are encouraged to hang around for a time of fellowship. This “social time” after the time together in the Word is also so beneficial. God created us for relationships and this time with coffee and friends is awesome!
Women’s Bible Study
October 6 – November 17
6:30pm – 8:00pm
Join us in the library as we dive into God’s Word and the book “Looking for Lovely”. As Christians, we are not promised lives of ease. Often it takes just a small moment of beauty to regain hope and continue on when life is chaotic and unpredictable. Only when we learn to spot the lovely in the midst of hardship can we experience the transcendent peace of God that keeps us persevering when we want to give up. We will examine the ordinary people of the Bible—fishermen, gardeners, women, soldiers—to reveal the moments they found beauty in everyday circumstances and hope in God’s timing. They trusted in this: He makes everything beautiful in His time.
Sign up at the Purpose Place or call the church office by Sunday, September 25 in order to receive a copy of the study book. Contact DCE Jan with any questions.
What is to be “useful”? In Philemon, Paul writes in a very personal way and with much intention. The words and thoughts are tied together around the salvation that Philemon, Onesimus, and Paul all share in Christ Jesus. How does Paul seek to find peace in the world for the church? Join Pastor Rod on Thursdays at 9:30am beginning this week in Room F3. Ends October 13.
Men’s Bible Study
The 6am Friday morning men’s Bible study is held each Friday, from September through May. Join us at 6am as we study the book of Galatians. Led by Brian Hackman and Pastor Charlie.
