Sunday Adult Bible Study


"The Sovereignty of God" 


If you are not attending the 9:00 Service on Sunday morning, the Sunday Adult Bible Study and Education men and women would love to have you join for a special and grand time in God's Word.  We meet in the Church Library at 9:00 A.M. and conclude at 10:00 A.M. This gives you lots of time to visit and get a hot cup of coffee before our 10:30 Sunday Service.


In the month of October we will be studying about the Sovereignty of Jesus and using the Book of Hebrews as our guide book. This letter was written to Hebrew Christians who apparently were disturbed by legalistic priests who traveled to young churches, arguing that the Old Testament life styles must be maintained by believers in Jesus. The letter show that Christ is the reality which Old Testament institutions only foreshadowed. Believers need not go back, but must go forward to experience a new life in Christ which does not depend on the old ways. 


Women's Bible Study


Gospel of Luke 

The Gospel of Luke is unique in at least two ways.  First, it is the longest Gospel and contains 1,151 verses.  Second, it is the only Gospel with a sequel.


Luke must have shared some of Jesus' deep understanding of people's heartaches, because he shows amazing insight as he notes again and again how Jesus related to people, especially those who had needs: women, children, the sick and disabled, the poor, and the oppressed. Luke also makes special mention that in addition to the twelve disciples who traveled with Jesus, there were other followers,including women. Luke’s care in telling about specific individuals not mentioned in the other Gospels - widows, children, and babies -- point to him as a heart specialist, a doctor of the soul.


We would like would like to invite all the women to come and join us as we study Luke's Gospel on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in the Christiansen Room.
