WE OVER ME
Led by: Shandra Cameron & Vicki Msall
Will meet on Wednesday mornings at 10:00AM in Rm. E104 beginning Jan. 29. This is a 9-week class.
 
It’s easy to get frustrated with the local church – we see the people in the pews up close, both their beauty and blemishes. But God has a purpose and a plan that He uniquely accomplishes in and through the church, and he wants you to be a part of it.
 
In the opening 3 chapters of Revelation, we find a wake-up call directed toward 7 churches and discover the truth of God’s desire for the church. Over 9 sessions, challenge your perspective and embrace your part in helping the church fulfill its calling.
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
 
MISREADING SCRIPTURE WITH WESTERN EYES
Led by: Ginny Mills
Will meet on Wednesday nights at 6:00PM in the Library beginning Jan. 29. This is an 8-week class.
 
What was clear to the original readers of Scripture is not always clear to us. Because of the cultural distance between the biblical world and our contemporary setting, we often bring modern Western biases to the text. 
 
Biblical scholars Brandon O’Brien and Randy Richards show how better self-awareness and understanding of cultural differences in language, time and social mores allow us to see the Bible in fresh and unexpected ways. Learn to read Scripture as a member of the global body of Christ.

FINAL WORDS
Led by: Harriet Meadows
Will meet on Tuesday mornings at 10:00AM in Room E104 beginning Feb. 11. This is a 6-week class.
 
In life and in death, Jesus’ words were powerful and meaningful. Despite the serious effort and increased pain required for Jesus to speak as he hung on the cross, Jesus spoke seven “final words” – statements that have much to teach us about Jesus, his Father, and ourselves. In this study, author Adam Hamilton explores these final words as seen and heard through the eyes and ears of those who stood near the cross.
