Sunday Morning Opportunities

Beginning Sunday, December 2
Beginning Sunday, December 2, Ms. Vicki Greene will lead one adult Sunday School class in Room 109 for the Advent season. Our book is titled Christmas Gifts that Won’t Break by James W. Moore and Jacob Armstrong. Come with us on an Advent Journey in order to explore the true spirit of Christmas. As we light our candles in our Advent wreath, we will reflect on the unbreakable gifts that God has given us: hope, love, joy and peace. We will also remember God’s greatest gift, Jesus Christ, who comes to us as a baby and leads us through all the days of our lives. The book is available in the church office or online. All are welcome to join in the book study!

Weekday Education Opportunities

“Book of Romans” Bible Study (Wednesdays at 1:30 p.m.)

Everyone is invited to participate in our Wednesday afternoon Bible Study at 1:30 p.m. This year we will be studying the Book of Romans. Our primary text will be Romans: The Letter That Changed the World by Mart De Haan, Jimmy DeYoung. Copies are available in the office for $6.00.

The description below highlights some of the key features of the resource that we’ll use this semester. “Brilliant. Counter-cultural. History-shaping. With blazing clarity, Paul’s letter to the early churches in Rome revealed both the transforming light of the gospel and the darkness of the surrounding world.

Now, in 12 interactive, DVD-based small group sessions, Romans: The Letter That Changed the World takes you to a land of the Bible much bigger than you’ve imagined-to the vast sweep of the ancient Roman Empire and the cradle of the newborn church. With Mart De Haan and Jimmy DeYoung, wander the ruins of Scythopolis.

Marvel at the imposing arches of the aqueduct. Explore a stone dungeon in the capitol city of Rome. And discover just how radical a message Paul’s letter to the Romans really was-why it has inspired both hope and conflict through the centuries and why today it continues to challenge our culture and change hearts and lives.”

The Bible study will meet weekly through Wednesday, December 12. Feel free to bring your lunch or join us after lunch. Each week we will enjoy lively discussions filled with laughter, learning and fellowship. We are looking forward to seeing you.
