bible stories for adults | LC 214/216

Led by Kurt Rosenhagen. How long has it been since you studied the classic stories of the Bible? Have you ever looked at these stories from an adult perspective? Are you a new Christian and have never heard these stories?

Bible Stories for Adults is your opportunity to become reacquainted with the Biblical characters and events that Christians have come to love.  There is much we can learn about God as He reveals Himself through His-Story.

Lessons of this summer quarter demonstrate the work of the Holy Spirit through the people of the early church as we walk through the stories in the book of Acts. The class will restart at the beginning in Genesis in the fall.

Led by Gary Himmler & Richard Zalesak.

Mid-Week Class

James, 1 & 2 Timothy, 1 & 2 Thessalonians Men's Bible Study |  6:45-8am  |  In-Person (Tuesdays)

Led by Ron Petri.  James and 1 & 2 Timothy will be studied April-June. 1 & 2 Thessalonians will be studied June-August.

James focus is on how the Christian faith is to be lived out on a day-to-day basis. The Sermon on the Mount underlies most of this letter.

1 Timothy discusses the character of people who ought to be in leadership. 2 Timothy is considered the last letter written by Paul and is personal in tone.

The first letter to the Thessalonian church is probably Paul's earliest surviving letter and is generally dated around 51 A.D. The letter was intended to encourage the Christian growth of new believers in the Thessalonian church and to settle questions they had. Paul expresses his relief and joy at the good progress the new converts are making despite their lack of teaching. He also speaks of the Lord's coming as being sudden and unexpected.

2 Thessalonians was probably written only a few weeks or months after 1 Thessalonians, in about 52 A.D. Paul writes (1) to encourage persecuted believers, (2) to correct a misunderstanding concerning the Lord's return and (3) to exhort the Thessalonians to be steadfast and to work for a living.

 Wednesday women's class

Recapturing the wonder of the word | 9-11am | Chapel (june 9-july 28, 2021)

Led by Mary Fricke. Now, as Christians, we are the people of the Book. but sometimes, we lose the wonder of the Word. And this summer, we are asking God to give us a fresh sense of the beauty and the sweetness of His Word to help us to love it and to delight in it. We will be reading through some of our favorite books of the Bible each week. But why? Because anything God's Word says is more powerful than anything we could possibly say about it. Please join us for women's fellowship and discipleship.
