Adult Bible Study
This diverse class uses The Present Word. Through the expoloration 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 indivicual 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 lessons in five years.
This fall we are exploring how God commands us to love one another as God loves us. Three units will study Struggles with Love, Inclusive Love and Godly Love Among Belivers.
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 summer the class is studying “All the Places to Go; How Will You Know?” by John Ortberg. Our lives are filled with divine appointments; unlimited opportunities to join God in an amazing adventure. We just need to have faith enough to walk through the doors God has opened for us.
Meets Sunday mornings at 10:15 via Zoom
