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.
Our summer lesson book looks at God’s gift of faith as the source of hope. Within the overall theme, each lesson stands alone, and we’d love to have you join us any week you’re able.
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.
Starting August 8, this class will dive into:
Love Wins by Rob Bell
A Book About Heaven, Hell, and the
Fate of every Person Who Ever Lived
In Love Wins, a New York Bestseller, the bestselling author, international teacher, and speaker Rob Bell addresses one of the most controversial issues of faith—hell and the afterlife—arguing, would a loving God send people to eternal torment forever? With searing insight, Bell puts hell on trial with a hopeful message—eternal life doesn’t start when we die; it starts right now. And ultimately, Love Wins. He presents a deeply biblical vision for rediscovering a richer, grander, truer, and more spiritually way of understanding heaven, hell, God, Jesus, salvation, and repentance.
