Our Wednesday night Bible Study continues throughout the Winter. We meet on Wednesday evenings beginning at 7:30 p.m. We will finish February and begin March with our study titled The Mission of Jesus: Triumph of God’s Kingdom in a World of Chaos.
ENTER THE CHAOS. In John 17:26 Jesus said; “I made known Your name to them, and I will continue to make it known ….” In this study we will deepen our understanding of this passionate revelation of God’s Name to a broken world that God longs to redeem. Discover how Jesus triumphantly made God’s presence known on Earth, and how He asks you to do the same – by bringing God’s shalom to the chaos of others.
We are scheduled to begin a new study on Wednesday March 14th. Rev. Dr. Ursula Cargill will lead us in a study titled A Clash of Kingdoms: Paul Proclaims Jesus as Lord – Part 1.
BE THE MESSAGE. As Christians we’re called to proclaim God’s name in all the earth; that’s our mission! (See 1 Chronicles 16:8.) But how do we do that in the midst of false gospels? In the fifteenth volume of the That the World May Know film and Bible study series, we will discover how Paul communicated the Good News of Christ to Philippi, a Roman colony that worshipped false gods. Can you live the message as Paul did while he encouraged the church in Philippi to consider itself a colony of heaven, not Rome? Consider your citizenship – and the message you convey to the world – as this study takes us deeper into the culture of ancient Philippi as a way of increasing our faith.
In each session we will focus on passages of the Bible that are explored in a video segment that is filmed on location in Israel and the greater Middle East to illuminate the historical, geographical and culture context of the Bible. Filmed in locations in the Middle East, this study will transform your understanding of God and will challenge you to be a true follower of Jesus. Together we will review sidebars, maps, photos and other Bible study tools and use questions to facilitate our discussions and to inspire personal reflection on the texts.
