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

Bible Study Your Way: Acts

“BIBLE STUDY YOUR WAY”  You are probably familiar with Micah 6:8, but do you know it is part of a court-room scene?  You probably long for a time when “nation shall not lift up sword against nation, neither shall they learn war anymore.”  That is in Micah.  Did Micah predict a Messiah born in Bethlehem?  Why is Micah a “Minor “ prophet?  Join Matt and Greg Kupar for two months of lively discussion unpacking Micah at 9:30 in the Library.


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)

 Matt’s Wednesday classes meet at 10:30am and 6:30pm
The class is a roundtable discussion format and all are welcome. The idea is to learn new things, ask questions, and grow deeper in our understanding of ourselves, the world around us, and God. Matt will be teaching from a book by Howard Thurman called “Jesus and the Disinherited.” Vincent Harding, African-American historian and a scholar of various topics with a focus on American religion and society called this text the centerpiece of the Black prophet-mystic’s lifelong attempt to bring the harrowing beauty of of the African-American experience into deep engagement with what
he called “the religion of Jesus.” We’ll explore the major themes of Thurman’s thinking and discover how this book can be a source of inspiration in our spiritual lives today. No need to read the book, but it is relatively short if you’d like to.
