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

Starting April 28, Matt will be offering a Bible Study class on Sunday mornings on the book of Acts. Is it the Acts of the Apostles or should we really think of it as The Acts of Jesus? The book in our Bible that we often refer to simply as Acts is an interesting collection of stories about the early church. We’ll explore questions like, Was Jesus trying to create the church? Was the early church really like a commune? and What was Luke’s intent when he wrote Acts? The time after Easter is a perfect opportunity to reflect upon Jesus’ intentions for the faith community, how it was shaped by the larger culture of the 1st century, and what that might mean for us. Join Matt at 9:30 in the Marshall Parlor, and we’ll explore your questions about this interesting book and time in the history of the church. 



 

 


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

 The Seven Last Words of Christ are a series of sayings collected from several of the gospels that capture the final words of Jesus.  They have served as a source to guide worship and prayer for many centuries in the church.  Each Wednesday during the season of Lent, we’ll examine one of the sayings, it’s implications for us today, and a method of prayer that relates to the saying.
