Adult Bible Study Class
This diverse class uses The Present Word. Through the exploration of biblical text, adult study groups are invited into a deepened relationship with God. The Present Word engages participants in an experiential style of learning—connecting faith and life. The Present Word nurtures individual growth of the participants as children of God rooted in the Christian community, life in the Spirit and Christian hope. Discussion and activities encourage participants to live out their faith in their individual and congregational activities.. The lessons are ordered so that all the books of the Bible will be covered by the lessons in five years. The class has a discussion format and everyone is invited to join us on Sunday mornings at 9:45 a.m. in Room A.
This summer’s study looks at God’s grace-based justice. It begins by describing it, then explores Jesus’ call for us to live it, and ends with Paul’s teachings about it. Our study uses a format that provides a one-page excerpt of the Bible and 3-4 pages of commentary each week, as a way to guide our discussions in class. Each lesson stands alone, so any week you want to join the conversation you’ll be able to participate as much or as little as you’d like.
The name of this class is derived from the idea that we endeavor to strengthen our faith during our Sunday morning class in order to connect it to the remainder of the week. The class explores a wide range of topics which are biblical-based, incorporating a variety of books, DVDs, and tapes which are selected by the class. The format of this class is facilitated discussion, and members who wish, volunteer to lead the class for one or two consecutive Sundays. This interesting format allows for diverse teaching styles and introspection to the lesson. Class members bring a variety of experience from their own faith journey. Join us in the Parlor on Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
We’re all searching. Sometimes the search is easy: simply type a question and the answer pops up. But sometimes our questions are complicated, and the answers are difficult to see and harder to articulate. How do we discover and examine the truths that give meaning and purpose to life? Adam Hamilton believes that some powerful answers are contained in the Apostles’ Creed, an early statement of foundational Christian beliefs.
In this book Hamilton considers important questions of life, reality, and truth. He explores not only what Christians believe, but also why they believe it and why it matters.
