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 spring lesson book looks at the Faithful Prophets of the Old Testament and their ministries. 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.
This class has joined with Pastor Matt’s class during Lent and is currently using “Entering the Passion of Jesus – a Beginner’s Guide to Holy Week.”
Starting on April 11, the class study “The Walk – Five Essential Practices of the Christian Life” by Adam Hamilton. How do we walk with Christ—daily follow him, grow in him, and faithfully serve him? In the Gospels, Jesus modeled for us the Christian spiritual life. The apostles taught it in their writings. And the Church has, through the last 2,000 years, sought to pursue this Christian spiritual life. In The Walk, Adam Hamilton focuses on five essential spiritual practices that are rooted in Jesus’ own walk with God and taught throughout the New Testament. Each of these practices is intended as part of our daily walk with Christ while also being an essential part of growing together in the church. In each chapter, Hamilton explores one of these practices, its New Testament foundation, and what it looks like to pursue this practice daily in our personal life and together in the life of the church. Deepen your walk with Christ as we explore the five essential practices of worship, study, serving, giving, and bearing witness to our faith.
