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.
The WINTER BIBLE SERIES will continue our study of the biblical letters of St. John the Apostle (a.k.a., "Johannine Literature") following our recent review of the Gospel of John. More specifically, we will look at I, II, and III John from the New Testament. Study guides will be provided for each section ahead of time, and classes are largely interactive. Meetings will be held most Wednesdays* in the main classroom from January 8 through March 25, with a daytime group from 11:30-1:00 and evening group (repeating the same material) from 6:30-8:00. Refreshments will be provided.
*Our Winter Bible Series is 10-weeks total, with no classes on Wednesday, February 5 and March 4.
