Immediately before our risen Lord's ascension into heaven, he instructed His disciples: "Go therefore and make disciples of all the nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and the Son and the Holy Spirit" (Matt. 28:19). That Jesus would give this final instruction to His followers shows the importance of these words; but in order to proclaim the "good news" (i.e., gospel) and make disciples of others, we must first become disciples ourselves. This is done, in part, by understanding God's revelation to us. We take this mission seriously and invite anyone interested to join our regular classes. Participants are given any necessary informational handouts and questionnaires ahead of time to consider as they read through the assigned material for the week. Class discussions are interactive, offering people an opportunity to learn in a contextually appropriate way, ask questions, and apply what they are learning to their lives.
Our SUMMER SERIES this year will consist of three classes, beginning with INTRODUCTION TO THE OLD TESTAMENT each Thursday in June (6-27). This class will give an overview of the Hebrew Bible and a foreshadowing of Jesus as Messiah. Following the July 4th holiday, the second course on CHRISTIAN APOLOGETICS (July 11-August 8) will focus on both our understanding and rational defense of the Christian Faith. The final summer course called BIBLICAL WORLD (August 22-September 19) will be offered as a precursor to this October's Holy Land Pilgrimage, focusing on the historical sites of Jesus' time and the role they play in Scripture.
Meetings are held each Thursday from 6:30-8:00 PM in the main classroom, and refreshments will be available to all participants. No registration is necessary, so bring your friends or family members.
