Check out what Ed Smith sent me to describe his class! It sounds so interesting and educational. Have you thought about Paul’s Voyage to Rome in this way?
“Anything BUT a Mediterranean vacation cruise, we often overlook the importance of the last two chapters of the book of Acts. This class will look at Paul’s long-standing desire to reach the city of Rome, beginning with his work in Ephesus, and then tracing the events of his arrests, trials, and the voyage itself. Along the way, we will learn about the Roman culture that surrounded Paul, and see that the Holy Spirit can even use narrative passages to teach us doctrinal and theological truths about being servants of Jesus Christ.”
Beth describes the point of her class on Prayer this way:
“How do I get to this:
By “closing my eyes” and depending on this…
I can’t wait to hear more.
Possibly my favorite teacher :-) , Don Bunting, will present classes on Church Membership. How does one become a “member” of the Lord’s church? What about the local congregation? Is “membership” necessary? What benefits and obligations go with it? Are you too young to be thinking about this? I don’t think so!
Our evening Spiritual / Skill-Building Activities will be Learning to Teach Children’s Bible Classes. We’ll be using Daniel, Chapters 1-6. It’s going to be great! Thanks, Ashley Martineau for the picture!
Bertina Smelser will be teaching from 1,2 and 3 John this year. She told me she’s having a wonderful time studying these thought-provoking letters. Even though they’re short, they’re full of big ideas. And her favorite verse in the Bible is found here. Can you guess which one it is? (Guess in your application!)
Melanie Jonas, is creating a class called “Strong Women” – Strong Bible students, strong mothers, strong wives, strong Christians. And coming from this strong woman, I can’t wait to hear more!
This year, Sara Smith will be teaching from the book of Philippians! Sara calls it her “go-to” book: how to: increase joy, appreciation for others, learn to give and receive, leave guilt, anxiety and pride behind….how to do it all and have it all? “I can do all things through Christ who strengthens me.” What an uplifting class!
