Cover to Cover Bible Study 1 Corinthians: Growing A Spirit-Filled Church by Christine Platt
In the first letter to the Corinthians, Paul addresses the many problems of division and immorality, and seeks to clarify the church’s understanding of these issues. Platt explains, even though 1 Corinthians was written over 2, 000 years ago, Paul’s letter is still relevant and should serve as a resource for churches in the twenty-first century. Join us in this vibrant discussion as we learn to demonstrate the power of the kingdom of God more effectively in the face of pressures from our worldly culture.

1 Corinthians: The Authentic Christian Life by Dr. David Jeremiah
Paul, as the spiritual father of the church in Corinth, pens this letter to the Corinthians to cease their misbehavior and to remind them of who they are in Christ. Corinth was a center for international commerce and its citizens were struggling with divisions and immorality. Paul exhorts the Corinthians to live as citizens of God’s kingdom and to separate themselves from the sinful practices of the world. Come join this study and learn what it means to be a member of the body of Christ and to genuinely love one another.

Starting Wednesday September 7
Canceled Science: What Some Atheists Don’t Want You To See by Eric Hedin
For the past 200 years, science and religion have been engaged in an unhealthy battle for the dominant paradigm of human world-views. A relatively new movement, called “Intelligent Design,” has entered the fray, offering fresh interpretations from amazing scientific discoveries that bolster our reasons for faith. This is not “Creation Science.” Rather, it involves inferences to faith that provide the best explanations for the scientific data. The class will promote conversations about the interface of science and theology, and how these two disciplines may work together. Zoom
Sunday Bible Study: The Ten Commandments
Starting September 11
Facilitated by Debra Hegler starting at 10:15am in the Morrison Room.
Bible Study: The Ten Commandments
J. I. Parker noted that the Ten Commandments are often mistakenly considered God’s “rules” an outdated list of laws that add up to a guilt-ridden, legalistic way of life. However, as you explore the purpose and true meaning of the Ten Commandments, you will discover that these percepts can aptly be called God’s blueprint for the best life possible. Join us in this powerful discussion of the modern-day relevance of the Ten Commandments.
Ephesians: The Inheritance We Have in Christ
Starting September 11
Facilitated by Marty Capers in Fireside Room and via Zoom at 10:15 a.m.
Ephesians: The Inheritance We Have in Christ by Dr. David Jeremiah
Dr. Jeremiah shared that Ephesus was in a region engulfed in spiritual wickedness and the location of a clash taking place between Christianity and pagan religions. However, Paul saw an opportunity to further the kingdom of God. In the letter to the Ephesians, Paul guides the believers through their spiritual inheritance in Christ. This inheritance moves them from death to life and into God’s family. Because of this, they must “walk worthy of their calling,” identify and use their spiritual gifts, and put on the full armor of God.
