Understanding the Old Testament Part 1 –
Genesis through Second Samuel
Led by Ted Wray
Do you know some of the Old Testament stories and history but wonder how the books of the Old Testament have any connection to Jesus and the New Testament? How is the Bible one book, one history, one story? What do we learn of God, and how is Jesus revealed, in the Old Testament?
This Old Testament “survey course” will help us discover and appreciate the central theme of the entire Word of God – his dealings with his people and his provision of salvation through faith in Christ. We will be studying one Old Testament book each Sunday, starting with Genesis. Our study guide will be a classic best-selling handbook by Henrietta Mears. Each week students will be expected to read approximately eight pages in the handbook and read selected Bible readings from the Old Testament book we are studying. This course will help make the reading and study of God’s Word interesting, challenging and useful.
Becoming Doers of the Word in Family Relationships
Led by Dave McDonald
In the book of James believers are exhorted to “be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves (James 1:22).” In our class together, we will be seeking to learn how to become “doers of the Word” by putting some biblical principles into practice that guide us in our family relationships. We will be studying several passages from Ephesians 4-6, specifically looking at some principles about marriage and parenting that the Word of God teaches us and seeking to learn how we can become doers of the Word in our marriages and our relationships with our children, young and old.
