Sunday Morning Studies
The New Testament You Never Knew
Begins Sunday, April 24 at 11:00 a.m.
Do you know the real story behind the New Testament? We all share a fascination for discovering "the rest of the story." We enjoy learning the behind-the-scenes facts about seemingly familiar events. In this eight-session video Bible study, well-known Bible scholars N.T. Wright and Michael F. Bird team up to take you on a tour of the story behind the explosive story of the New Testament.
You will discover things you never knew about Jesus' baptism and journey into the wilderness, the meaning behind his parables and miracles, the significance of his death and resurrection, the incredible expansion of the early church into the Greco-Roman world, and how the transforming mission of Jesus can still turn the world upside down today.
Through reading the New Testament we continually discover that God indeed keeps his promises, but those promises don't always look like what people expected. Especially when it comes to Jesus. So, come join the journey with N.T. Wright and Michael Bird and they will help you understand the New Testament you never knew. Steve Rempe will lead this conversation on Sunday mornings beginning Sunday, April 24 through June 19.
Classes will be in-person; however, there is a virtual option for those wishing to participate remotely. To register, please click here.
An Odd Couple, Jonah and Ruth: Lessons for Our Fractured World
2nd and 4th Wednesday Mornings 10:00-11:30 a.m.
This class meets virtually Wednesday mornings from 10:00 – 11:30AM. The 9 sessions in this unit (four on the book of Jonah and five on the on the book of Ruth) come from Kerygma. Jonah shows the original readers of the book, as well as us, what a picture of their bigotry and hatred of foreigners and enemies looks like to God. Ruth shows what life lived in performing deeds of הסתה (loving kindness and mercy) looks like to us and to God. The Midweek Bible Class meets on the second and fourth Wednesday of each month beginning at 10AM on January 26, led by Pastor Meehan. Right now, the class is meeting virtually.
