Take a Deeper Dive into Faith

Mondays 10:30 AM - Noon, Starting January 29th
In the Sanctuary

We are a Bible church, but not all of us in this church have the same knowledge, understanding, or interpretation of the Bible. Join Pastor Erin for a fun, stimulating, enlightening and challenging look at scripture.

Using the book, "Making Sense of the Bible," by Adam Hamilton, we will engage on the history of Scripture, the context of the Old and New Testaments, the authority of Scripture in our lives and various ways to interpret. Then, we will begin to discuss topics such as violence, suffering, science, sexuality, tattoos, and end times with our various understandings of scripture. In this class we seek to hear and understand one another and not defend or explain our own understandings.

The book is available in the church office and provided to you through the tithes and offerings of the congregation. We are also looking into an interactive online option.
