We’ll kick off a new year of Sunday School and Adult Bible Study with Rally Day on Sunday, September 9, during the Bible Study hour from 10:15 - 11:15. We’ll all gather in the school gym for a short devotion, a few items of business, and a project for all ages. Come help us start off the new year as we continue to grow in God’s Word!
The Sunday morning adult Bible class will begin a series of Bible studies on the book of Hebrews. The study will consist of four sections: 1) Angels to Jesus, 2) Moses to Jesus, 3) High Priests to Jesus, and 4) Heroes of the Faith to You. We'll discover the strength we have in Jesus to resist temptation, the peace and rest that we have in Jesus, the assurance we have in the New Covenant mediated by Jesus, and what it means to walk by faith in Jesus.
The Sunday morning adult Bible class will resume Sunday, September 9 and will meet from 10:30 - 11:15 a.m. each Sunday in the church basement. Anyone college age or older is invited to participate. The studies are also live streamed on our Facebook page.
Join us Sundays from 10:15 - 11:00 a.m. as we come together as families to study the word of God. We will be studying the parables of Jesus. All ages are invited-- families will spend time rediscovering the parables of Jesus and what they mean for us while the youngest among us will be able to draw the parables for themselves, sharing their artwork with us at the end of the study each week.
It's that time of year when we take a good look and consider the (many?!) ways that we want to improve ourselves. But have you considered how you can grow spiritually? Saint Peter writes,
 Therefore, beloved, since you are waiting for (the new heaven and the new earth that will come at Christ's return), be diligent to be found by him without spot or blemish, and at peace.  And count the patience of our Lord as salvation, just as our beloved brother Paul also wrote to you according to the wisdom given him,  as he does in all his letters when he speaks in them of these matters. There are some things in them that are hard to understand, which the ignorant and unstable twist to their own destruction, as they do the other Scriptures.  You therefore, beloved, knowing this beforehand, take care that you are not carried away with the error of lawless people and lose your own stability.  But grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. To him be the glory both now and to the day of eternity. Amen. (2 Peter 3:14-18, ESV, emphasis added)
Join us for Adult Bible study on Sunday mornings as we learn about the spiritual exercises that God's people have used for thousands of years and encourage one another to make use of them in order to "Grow in the grace and knowledge of our Lord and Savior Jesus Christ."
Our Thursday morning Women's Bible Study is about to begin a new study on the book, "Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply: Receive God's Overflowing Gifts" by Deb Burma.
It's about taking a break from the daily grind.
The idea of a coffee break is enticing, isn’t it? Even if coffee isn’t your beverage of choice, you look forward to downtime, especially if it is spent with a friend who wants your company.
Jesus is such a friend. The Lord wants our company. He invites us to meet with Him in His Word. Just imagine what He has in store for us as we meet Him with our “cup”—our self—a vessel created and chosen by God, redeemed in Christ, and ready to be filled for His purpose.
Time spent in Bible study will fill you to the brim and beyond with God’s Good News. Sip, savor, and drink deeply from His Word. Receive the outpouring of His grace, His joy, and His peace!
We are blessed to have a group of women of all ages who come together for fellowship, prayer, and Bible study every Thursday morning from 9:00 - 10:30 a.m. (in the church basement).
We start by spending time in prayer, going around the table and each taking a turn thanking God or asking His help and care for any particular concerns or needs we may have. Then we make our way through a Bible study book-- this time, "Sip, Savor, and Drink Deeply"-- that enables us to be refreshed and strengthened by God's Word.
We have young women and slightly older women. Some bring their babies and toddlers, but all are blessed by this time. And you are welcome!
Advent is a time of preparation-- getting ready to celebrate the birth of our Savior. That's why people have often literally counted down the days until Christmas using an Advent calendar. Join us during the Sunday School/Bible study time on Sunday, December 3, and you’ll get to make a calendar of your very own. Each family will get to make their own calendar to take home and use during the countdown to Christmas. There is no cost and all the materials will be provided.
This activity will be in place of Adult Bible Study and Sunday School for December 3.
