The New Testament Church has to start somewhere. Jesus sent the twelve Apostles out with his gospel to share it with the world. Those are tall marching orders, but by the power of the Spirit these ordinary men spread the good news of the greatest story ever told. In our Bible study will look at some of the highlights from the book of Acts.
Our worship is a reflection of what we believe. It is also a window to our past. We will be offering a new Bible study for the new year – Worship Windows. The old thesis lex orandi, lex credendi (“The law of prayer is the law of belief”) remains true. In the House of the Lord is based on this thesis: “What we believe influences how we worship. And how we worship reflects what we believe.”
There are a handful of chapter in the Bible that stand out in their importance. This summer we’ll consider a few of these Very Important Chapters in VIC.
When the prophet Joel called God’s people to repentance he understood that this was more than a change of action. Repentance is a change of the heart. This isn’t something that God’s people can do on their own either. In Rend Your Hearts we will look at a number of different passages from our God.
Due to the snow storm we will not offer our early Zoom Bible study. It’s the start of a New Year and everyone is look for some good advice. What better place to look than the Bible? God has inspired (literally breathed in his very words) the authors of this book with some awesome wisdom. In this class we’ll look at a few common topics that come up and see what wisdom our God has for us!
This Advent and Christmas we’ll do a little American church history and see how the holiday has been celebrated since the days of the colonies. We’ll walk through the centuries and see how the festival of Christmas has changed, not always for the better, not always for the worse. Each lesson we’ll see what our God has to say about Christmas.
