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 winter lesson book looks at God’s call throughout the New Testament as a way to explore our own calls. The three units focus on Jesus’ heritage (Matthew), Jesus’ call (other Gospels), and faithful women (a mix of Gospels and Epistles). 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 November 15th, this class will be studying A New Reformation, by author Rob Fuquay. His book will introduce you to the life of Martin Luther and two important themes of the Reformation he sparked: the centrality of Scripture and the power of God’s grace. Through a close look into the life of Martin Luther and the world of sixteenth-century Europe, you will discover what makes Luther’s message revolutionary today—and how we can embrace Reformation in the church and in our personal lives.
