    MAJORING IN THE MINORS (A STUDY OF THE 12 MINOR OT PROPHETS)

    Led by Pastor Myers

    When Jesus told the Jews to ‘search the Scriptures’ (Jn 5:39), they knew He meant all 39 books of the Old Testament.  We’re more familiar with some of these books, but maybe not so familiar with what we call “the minor prophets” – not “minor” in degree of inspiration, authority, reliability or importance, but “minor” in brevity compared with Isaiah, Jeremiah, Ezekiel, Daniel. We’ll study these so they are not “minor” in use and familiarity.

    Saturday evening from 4:45-5:45pm in the Concordia Room

  • The Book of Hebrews: The Nearness of King Jesus

    Led by Pastor Snow

    The Book of Hebrews is a rich, dense section of Scripture which can intimidate the most scholarly biblical student, but in this study we’ll make digging in to Hebrews “fun and doable” without losing an once of depth!

    Hebrews was written as a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but it is also relevant for us today… reminding us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances.

    Join our Bible Class journey with Pastor Snow through this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter, Jesus our accessible King. He is not a “far away God,” but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us.

    Hebrews makes the connection between God the Father and God the Son, and reminds us that Jesus in supreme, while at the same time being compassionate, empathetic and loving to the end of time!

    Together, we’ll see the wisdom of God in every circumstance of our lives and we’ll make specific applications to our modern-day situation, faith and life.

    Be sure to bring your own Bibles each week so that you can highlight and make notes for your own future reference and study!

    Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am in the Concordia Room

  • John, Part 2: The Ministry of Christ

    Led by Dr. Lionel Alford 

    The Gospel of John is a great piece of Greek historical literature that is a primary source document for our understanding of the life and words of Christ.  John is one of the four extant and accepted Gospels—Good News.  It is a Greek document written by John the Apostle, a man from the Hebrew culture who was an observant Jew and a disciple of Christ.  In the overview of the Gospels we discovered that John is a thesis and logical argument—a logos to telos that was resolved through the signs followed by the resurrection of Christ.  In John part 2, we will review the Greek basis for the Gospel and then make an extensive cultural, social, linguistic, and historical study of it.  This study will take us through Easter and the Pentecostal seasons.  This will set us up for John part 3 where we will do the same through the rest of the year to see more of the life of Christ.

    Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am in the School Library
  • Women's Bible Study, “Love Rules: A Study of the Ten Commandments""

    Led by Kris Osler

    What do the Ten Commandments do for you? Do they send you on a guilt trip? Are they a mirror of your frailties? Or do they hold life-changing love? In this study by Christina Hergenrader, we will discuss those questions. The miracle of the Commandments is that even after thousands of years, they still hold everything we need to live in relationship with God and with one another.

    Sunday Mornings 9:30-10:30 am in the 8th grade classroom
