CLASSES + GROUPS
PONDERING THE PARABLES BIBLE STUDY
When temperatures soar and schedules slow, it’s a great time to draw closer to the Lord through studying His Word. Please join Virginia Gardiner on August 30 from 7-8:30 during August to focus on some of Jesus’ foundational parables. We’ll gather at Virginia’s house (see church directory), and weather permitting, will hang out on the deck, so dress for the garden! Light snacks and drinks will be available for anyone coming straight from work. Email Virginia w/ questions: email@example.com. If you’d like to prepare for the studies in advance, we will be studying Wheat and Tares (Matthew 13:24-30) and The Two Foundations (Matthew 7:24-27)
THE 10 SECOND RULE BOOK STUDY
SEPTEMBER 16 THRU NOVEMBER 18, 9:15 AM
All are welcome to this study of The 10 Second Rule by Clare De Graaf. Each week a different chapter will be presented and discussed. Books will be available in the Narthex and in class. Pre-reading of chapters is encouraged but not required as each week the leader will review the main points before discussion. From Amazon: “All over the world, Christians are returning to the simple faith of Jesus by living by the 10-Second Rule. In so doing, you can discover the power of simple obedience as Jesus taught it and the early church lived it.” Starting on September 16 through November 18, we will be meeting at 9:15 in the Upper Room for this informative study. Class leaders will be Lowell Gustafson, Jen Wannenburg, Beth Lindgren, Galen Black, Virginia Gardiner, Brian Ivy and Marge Miller.
UNDERSTANDING BIBLE TIMES
SEPTEMBER 16, 23, 30 & OCTOBER 14 AT 9:15 AM
A fun and often interactive look at 4 of the common life activities during the time of Jesus as well as Bible passages that pertain to these customs. Some classes will involve a bit of crafting, some a bit of walking – all will be enlightening.
The Four Topics (not necessarily in this order):
Pilgrimage to the Temple, Seeking the Light through Lamps and Jesus, How the Hebrews Remembered to Remember and Remaining in the Vine while Pruning the Branches. Class leaders are Sue Scott, Nancy Brown, Denise Slawter and Virginia Gardiner.
