Upcoming Summer 2020 Adult Studies
The Book of Isaiah
Begins Wednesday, June 3
Led by Tony Bentley
Wednesday evenings at 7:00 p.m.
The name Isaiah means “The Lord Saves.” The Book of Isaiah is a story of rebellion, judgement, promise and hope. According to John N. Oswalt, Old Testament professor at Ashbury Theological Seminary, Isaiah is “a revelation of the inevitable conflict between divine glory and human pride, of the self-destruction which that pride must bring, and of the grace of God in restoring that destroyed humanity to himself.” Join us for a nine-week Bible study of this Old Testament book which has at times been referred to as the fifth gospel.
Hebrews: The Nearness of King Jesus by Lisa Harper
Begins Thursday, June 11
Led by Kendra Wallace
Thursday afternoons at 1:00 p.m.
Hebrews was a sermon for a specific people and culture in the midst of martyrdom and persecution, but is also relevant for us today. Hebrews calls us to continue walking toward Jesus regardless of our culture or our circumstances. Ladies, join us as we take a closer look at this bridge between the Old and New Testaments to get to the heart of the matter: Jesus is our accessible King. He is not a faraway God, but an up-close Redeemer who draws near to us. Our study will help us make the connection between God the Father and God the Son and reminds us that Jesus is supreme. But, he is also compassionate, empathetic, and loving to no end.
You are welcome to join any of these groups. Contact Patsy Sorrell to participate and receive instructions on how to connect with a group.
