BIBLE STUDY YOUR WAY 
Sundays 9:30am – Marshall Parlor (1st Floor Education Building)

This class led by Douglas Ensminger, meets in the Marshall Parlor. Most of us have a Bible passage we wish someone would do a study on. It may be single verse, a passage of several verses or even an entire book of the Bible, perhaps it is a favorite, one we really dislike, or are puzzled by , whatever the case this is your chance! Starting January 6, the “God’s Left Hand” class will study texts you suggest. Contact Douglas Ensminger for details and to suggest your passage. (douglas@ensminger.us)

 

 


KERYGMA – PASTOR’S CLASS 
Wednesday Mornings 10:30 to 11:45am in the Library  (1st Floor Education Building)
Wednesday Evenings 6:30-7:30 Johnston Parlor (1st Floor off the Sanctuary)

Starting January 9th, we’re going to spend some time learning about the opioid epidemic: how it started, the impact it is having on our country and communities, and how we, in particular churches, can respond to this crisis that is affecting so many people. There are many good books that have come out in recent months that help us better understand the epidemic… Dreamland, Dopesick, The Big Fix. We’ll talk about some of these books and what we can take away from them. Over the course of the class we will have a visit from Dr. Sharon Walsh, Director of the Center on Drug and Alcohol Research  at the University of Kentucky and hear from someone involved in one of the various 12-step programs happening at Maxwell Street.
