the Christian Education Ministry Team is offering a new Adult Bible Study in three formats: Sunday School, online, and Midweek Bible Study. The study will start in February and is called Epic of Eden: Understanding the Old Testament by Dr. Sandra Richter. It’s a 12-week Bible study that includes a video with discussion.
Dr. Sandra Richter jumps headlong into the Old Testament to clearly and powerfully communicate a history of God’s redeeming grace, weaving together a story that runs from the Eden of the Garden to the garden of the New Jerusalem. This class will bring a new dimension to the history of the ancient Near East, orienting any study group in time, geography, culture, redemption, and relevance to today — all without diminishing her reader’s faith or “dumbing down” the scripture. Visit https://www.seedbed.com/epicofeden/ for more information.
David Smith will teach the Sunday School class in the Fellowship Hall.
Pastor Mandy will teach the Midweek Bible Study on Mondays at 2:30 pm in Room 207.
David and Pastor Mandy will actively participate in the Online Facebook group.
Our Annual Women’s Retreat will be April 5-7, 2019 at The Dwelling Place in Fort Valley, VA. The theme is “Be Still and Know” and Pastor Mandy will lead us in a weekend of worship, Bible study, fellowship, rest and recreation as we gather together in God’s creation. The cost is $50 which includes lodging for two nights and the registration fee. Each participant will be asked to help provide food for the weekend.
