Adult Bible Study

The Bible Study Sunday school class has changed to Lectionary-based lessons, so each week we look at the texts that the sermon and worship service are developed from.  We meet under the trees in the parking lot in good weather, and in the parlor in bad weather.  The conversation is lively, and we welcome new voices anytime!

Monday Connection

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.  

Currently, this class is studying:

Wholehearted Faith
by Rachel Held Evans

This book is for the doubter and the dreamer, the seeker and the sojourner, those who long for a sense of spiritual wholeness, as well as those who have been hurt by the Church but can’t seem to let go of the story of Jesus.

Wholehearted Faith

Pastor Matt’s Class

Please join Pastor Matt’s Bible study in the library on Sunday mornings at 10:00 a.m. 

Starting on 04/24, Jack Rightmyer will lead a 4-week study and discussion on the book of Chronicles.  

The word Chronicles literally means “the events of the days”.  Chronicles is a theological history which intends to inspire Israel once more to be a great people obedient to God.  Into the world of the Diaspora, the people of Israel are called to be faithful witnesses.  Their place of worship, the Temple, was to be the focal point everywhere. The Temple was not a tribal tabernacle, the house of holiness for the God of the universe.
We will see a United Kingdom under David who prepares the way, and Solomon who builds the Temple.  After the death of Solomon, we will see the deterioration and division of Israel, the fall of Jerusalem and the destruction of the Temple, the exile, and God’s grace shone to Israel through the Persian King Cyrus II, whose edict allowed Israelites to return to Jerusalem in Judah to rebuild the house of the Lord, the God of Israel.
