1 & 2 Samuel: God’s People Decide Who They Want to Be

First Quarter 2021 Sunday Evening Class
Class Teacher is Lewis Wheaton.
Class Title is "1 & 2 Samuel: God’s People Decide Who They Want to Be".

Link: Sunday Evening Bible Study Zoom

The purpose of this quarter is to grow in wisdom and knowledge about a time of considerable change for God’s people. God’s people are making many decisions, and they are at the point where these decisions are starting to have real consequences to their relationship with God.

While it is a study of the Old Testament, we will realize that this study is no more historical than any other Bible study.

In general, I expect we will all understand the settings of this account, the choices, the consequences, and realize the relevance to our lives today. We will all be able to understand how an unchanging God deals with disobedience from his own people, and reflect on what that means for Christians.

Fulfill Your Ministry: Studies in 1 & 2 Timothy

Second Quarter 2021 Wednesday Bible Class Syllabus.
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "Fulfill Your Ministry: Studies in 1 & 2 Timothy"

Link: Wednesday Evening Bible Study Stream

The books of 1st and 2nd Timothy (and also Titus) are commonly called the “pastoral epistles.” Perhaps “evangelistic epistles” would be a better designation, but in these books we find more than just instructions for preachers, elders, and deacons. The encouragement to “handle correctly the word of truth” and to avoid “whatever else is contrary to sound doctrine” is something every Christian needs to hear. Join us each Wednesday evening at 7:00 as we study Paul’s letters to his true child in the faith, Timothy.

2 Corinthians: Comfort, Deliverance and Hope

First Quarter 2021 Wednesday Bible Class Syllabus.
Class Teacher is Tim Smelser.
Class Title is "2 Corinthians: Comfort, Deliverance and Hope"

Paul’s second letter to the saints at Corinth has been referred to as the most personal, open, and intimate of all his letters. He truly bares his soul as he speaks of hardship, emotional pressure, and physical abuse. But through all of this we see what really motivated Paul and why he went trough all he did: his love for his brothers and sisters in Christ, his love for the gospel, and his love for God.
