Upstairs - Minor Prophets dialogue studies - Teacher: Gene Rainey

This dialogue-based series will divide the twelve Minor Prophets into four sections:  (1) The Bad Neighbors; (2) The Assyrian Empire prophets; (3) The Babylonian Empire prophets; and (3) the Persian Empire prophets.  God used these terrible empires to punish his people's sins and to promise them a better future with the coming of the Messiah. The Spring quarter (April-June; "Bad Neighbors") who are Nineveh, six surrounding nations with Obadiah's sole focus on Edom in the shortest book in the Old Testament) will cover Jonah (four lessons), Amos (eight lessons) and Obadiah (one lesson).

2.  Adult Class (Fellowship Hall) –

"The Family Project  – Promotional Video Series"

Class leaders: Matt Goodman and David Goodfred

Why do families work? Because God Himself designed them! Thriving families will lead to thriving communities, and thriving communities will transform the world. People will find purpose, joy and redemption; and generation after generation will create a positive legacy.

The Family Project is a 12-session, small-group experience that explores the theological, philosophical, and cultural underpinnings of the traditional family, and combines that information with inspiring stories and practical tools to help 21st-century families thrive.

The Family Project also offers a hope-filled, optimistic antidote to the current landscape of familial breakdown, sending a clear message that a return to the time-tested, historical model of the family is where so many of our culture’s wounds begin to heal. It’s designed to develop a new appreciation for why family matters based on a bigger understanding of who God is in His character, and why He created humanity the way He did. Equipped with this information, viewers will also be exposed to a wealth of hands-on tools and resources to help them embrace those values within their own families and pass them along to future generations.

Wednesday

7:00 pm - 8:00 pm

                           “What Does the Bible say about …”

 

Living in today’s world often brings about situations that make us unsure or uncomfortable in trying to respond in a Christian way.  It may be living conditions that were unthinkable 30 or 40 years ago.  It may be ethical dilemmas that are dropped in our lap by family or other loved ones.  Questions arise about the forms of our worship, gender roles, racial prejudices, and a host of other topics that are often “just not discussed” in the church.

A Wednesday evening Bible study, beginning September 24th, will explore these topics with the intent to discern God’s message for Christian living today.  Our prayerful expectation is that we will be drawn closer to God, closer to one another, and closer to our community.  We should be more at ease when these difficult situations arise knowing that we have something worthwhile to offer from God’s word and be better able to minister to someone searching for life’s answers.

Topics will be announced at least a week in advance to allow time for personal Bible study, prayer, and consideration of how you see each topic.  This dialogue oriented class is being led by Matt Goodman (pulpit minister), Ryan Robertson (youth minister), and Steve Evans (elder).  Class will begin promptly at 7 PM each Wednesday evening in the downstairs fellowship room.
