A Study in 1 Kings: Promises, Prophets, and Kings
Led by Rees Hunt
1 Kings starts with David on his death bed in 971 BC and ends with the death of evil King Ahab in 852 BC. Despite God’s promises, miracles, and gifts, various Hebrew rulers turned away from God and followed the ways of the world. In this class some of the topics we will cover are King Solomon, the divided Kingdom, King Ahab and the prophet Elijah. Join us is considering how the events recorded in 1 Kings demonstrate that humanity is unable to create a perfect kingdom and how we must put our trust in Jesus, our Lord and Savior.
A Praying Church
Led by Paul Reader
In this 7 week class, we’ll explore themes presented in Paul Miller’s book A Praying Church. Through prayer and study together, we’ll seek to gain a biblical vision for corporate prayer as the “breathing lungs" or "beating heart" of the church. We’ll trace the Scriptural connections of corporate prayer to the presence of the Holy Spirit, and (hopefully) gain a practical understanding of how the Trinity works together to breathe life into the church… through the prayers of the body of Christ. Come ready to study, discuss, and pray with others!
