Adult Bible Class begins September 13

 Adult Bible Class 

Currently, our plan is to have an in-person Adult Bible Class on Sundays at 8:45 AM.  Our classes will begin on September 13.  (We are exploring the possibility of live-streaming the Bible Class.)

This fall we will consider the Epistles of St. John.  Buried at the end of the New Testament, they may often get overlooked.  Yet, the Beloved Apostle gives us words of encouragement, comfort, and admonition so that we do not lose the fellowship that we have with Christ and with one another.  

The tentative schedule assumes that we will meet in person on Sundays:

Sept. 13 1 John 1:1-2:6       A real Savior and a blessed fellowship

Sept. 20 1 John 2:7-27       A properly focused love and a warning about false christs

Sept. 27 1 John 2:28-3:24   Children of God—both in status and in practice

Oct. 4 1 John 4:1-21        Test all teachings and live with godly love

Oct. 11 1 John 5:1-21        Confidence as God's children

Oct. 18 2 & 3 John        Embracing truth and love

Why Bible Class? 

>  It allows more time to work through God's word more slowly and intentionally than in a sermon.

>  It allows people to ask questions about the portions of God's word we are covering.  Sermons aren't designed for that.

>  It fosters discussion among each other, making us more comfortable about confessing our faith to others.

>  It alerts us to false teachings that might seduce us away from God's truth.

>  It tightens the fellowship bonds we already have with one other.

If you have not been with us, give Bible Class a try.
