“Responding to God’s Grace” This Bible study traces the account of God’s faithfulness to Israel and the early church, some amazing interactions with Jesus; and the response and growth of the church. We will meet in the Conference Room. Everyone is welcome. If you have questions, please contact Clarence Bauman or Barbara Barkdoll
The 9:15 am Adult Sunday School class has begun a twelve-week study of C. S. Lewis’s classic masterpiece of religious satire, The Screwtape Letters. The study will continue through mid-March 2020.
In the 31 letters which constitute the book, Screwtape the devil gives Wormwood his protégé detailed advice on various methods of undermining God's words and of promoting abandonment of God in "the Patient", interspersed with observations on human nature and on the Bible. In Screwtape's advice, selfish gain and power are seen as the only good, and neither demon can comprehend God's love for man or acknowledge human virtue. This negative approach points out many of our human failings and helps us depend more fully on God’s grace.
If you would like a copy of the book, or if you have any questions about the class, contact Jim or Marianne Miller. The 209-page book is $11.00. The Kindle version of the book is $2.99. In addition, you can download free .pdf files of the text from various websites.
ids For Christ meets the 4th Friday of each month October through May from 6:00 p.m.-8:30 p.m. The schedule changes slightly in November and December due to holidays. We provide dinner for the children and adult/youth volunteers.
Kids for Christ is like a mini-vacation Bible school offering Bible stories, crafts, games, snacks and music. It is also considered an outreach program as we have many children attending from our surrounding community and after school program. All children ages 3 yrs. old thru those in the 6th grade are invited to attend. Registration forms are available in the Welcome Center in October.
Adults and youth (7th grade and older) interested in volunteering and anyone with further questions, please contact Denise Barnes by calling (302) 236-2479.
