SUNDAY SCHOOL & WORSHIP
Our Sunday School classes are NOT meeting in person for the month of January. Each Sunday, join us for Worship at 10:00 am.
WEDNESDAY AFTERNOON BIBLE STUDY
The Wednesday afternoon Bible Study (1:00pm) will continue their study of the Gospels. This winter term we will be studying the Gospel of Matthew. For this particular study I will be utilizing a series entitled “Genesis to Revelation”. While there are student books that go with this study you need not purchase one. The real text will be the gospel itself. I will create a schedule for each week with which chapter(s) we will be studying. If you read through the “assigned” reading each week you will have what you need to know for each study.
Week one (Jan. 12) will be an overview of the Gospel of Matthew. While you need not read anything in particular, you could do a perusal through Matthew. You could get acquainted with the length, chapter divisions, and overall timeline. Matthew is longer than the Gospel of Mark but it shouldn’t take too long to leaf through it a bit. Many bibles have subheadings that allow you to get a sense of what each section is about. Though these are someone else’s interpretive framework but they may help you get an overall sense of the flow of the Gospel.
I hope to “see” many of you Wednesdays this Winter!
WINTER/SPRING BOOK STUDY
The Winter/Spring Book Study (6:00PM Wednesdays) will explore the “Bad Girls” of the Bible. Barbara Essex brings to life the Bible’s “bad girls”–notorious women we love to hate. Exploring lives filled with betrayal, deception, rejection, jealousy, and exploitation, Essex looks beyond the notoriety to show us women of exceptional boldness, courage, determination, and independence. These stories tell us about women we know–women not that different from ourselves.
This twelve-week study will be held in two parts. We will begin Part I on Wednesday, January 12th and it will run through February 16th. We will take a break during Lent. We will pick up Part II on Wednesday, April 20th and conclude the study on May 25th.
The books have been ordered and are $17.00 p/book (please pay the office.) The first meeting of the study will be an overview of the “bad girls” and books will be passed out.
