Dean and Kathy's class continues with the study "Paul's Coworkers and Converts." August classes will highlight young Pastor Timothy as well as Titus, Philemon, and other lesser known coworkers and converts. During the Civil War the South claimed slavery was approved by scripture, often quoting Apostle Paul as a defense for the deplorable institution. What were Paul's true feelings about slavery? How close was Paul to making Christians out of rulers Felix, Festus, Herod Agrippa, Centurion Julius and Chief Official Publius of Malta? What about some of their wives? Come join this class of disciples anytime, because each Sunday lesson stands on its own! All materials are provided, including Bibles, some of which are large print. We hope to see you in the Luther Room at 9:40 AM..
Class led by Mike Scott meets in the Choir Room
This seven-session small group Bible study, Walking with God in the Desert, by noted teacher and historian, Ray Vander Laan, is volume twelve of the 12-part Faith Lessons series. Are you going through a difficult period of life? The loss of a loved one? Unemployment? A crisis of faith? During these desert times, it’s easy to think God has disappeared. In Walking with God in the Desert you’ll discover that it’s only when we are totally dependent on him that we find God is closer than ever and can experience his amazing grace and provision. Filmed on location in Israel, Faith Lessons is a unique video series that brings God's Word to life with astounding relevance. By weaving together the Bible's fascinating historical, cultural, religious, and geographical contexts, teacher and historian Ray Vander Laan reveals unique insights into the Scriptures' significance for modern believers.
