“All scripture is inspired by God and is useful for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, so that everyone who belongs to God may be proficient, equipped for every good work.” – 2 Timothy 3:16-17 Through the study of scripture, the Holy Spirit opens our eyes to see the world around us, and our very lives, in a dramatically different (bigger) way.
Wednesday Night Bible Study - Revelation: Gift of Hope
The book of Revelation a book of hope? That might not sound right to our ears. The Apocalypse of St. John (a.k.a., Revelation) is often portrayed and understood to be a book of judgment, death, and disturbing images—the stuff of nightmares. That stuff is present in this book, to be sure; however, there is much more here: comfort, joy, hope, life...Christ Jesus, our risen, ascended and coming-again King!
Come and explore this often feared, often ignored, often misunderstood book and discover in it the message of hope and encouragement Christ has for you. Come with your Bible, come with questions, come with a friend!
6:30-8:00 p.m. each Wednesday, September 12 through November 14 in the Gathering Area
Council meetings begin with Bible Study and prayer. Our focus is to lead the spiritual life of the congregation, and to conduct congregational business and decision-making with this focus in mind.
7:00 p.m. on the 2nd Tuesday of each month except July in the Gathering Area
Want to start a new study?
We are always interested in supporting new Bible studies. We can suggest materials, help you learn how teach, help you find a teacher.
What is needed is an idea of who this study will serve and what the purpose is.
Is it a 5-minute study for a family before they leave the breakfast table?
Or is this a weekly lunch Bible study at work?
Or is would it be a 10-week evening class lead by a pastor?
We can even help you figure out what would be best.
