Bible Study

BIBLE CLASSES WITH PASTOR TOM

Tuesdays – "Is The Bible Reliable?"

The second in the series featuring Dr. Stephen Meyer.  The Bible claims to be the direct revelation of God about himself and his relationship to us.  Is this the Bible accurate and true, because if not, then how do we really know about God?  Dr. Meyer uses archeological and historical evidence to determine the truthfulness of the Scriptures.  Class meets on Tuesday mornings in the North Room from 10-11 A.M.

Sundays – "To the T"

Pastor Tom will lead the group verse by verse through the two letters to Timothy your and the two letters to the Thessalonians. Class meets Sunday mornings in the North Room starting about 9:45 A.M.  Bring your Bible.

GriefShare®


Help and encouragement after the death of a spouse, child, family member, or friend.
 


GriefShare® is a seminar and supportive network for people grieving the loss of someone close. We know it hurts and we want to help. Orange flyers with more information are available at both entrances to the sanctuary.

It is sponsored by people who understand the grief experience and want to extend comfort and encouragement during this time.  The 14 week curriculum includes a video seminar and group discussion, as well as a notebook which serves for note-taking, journaling and grief study.

GriefShare® features biblical teaching on grief and recovery topics.
If you, or someone you know has lost someone to death,
GriefShare® offers a constructive way to "journey from mourning to joy."

A new session of GriefShare® will begin on Monday, September 18th, 2017 at 6:30 P.M. and will continue for 13 consecutive Monday evenings. (session end date on 12/11/17)
The cost is $20 (scholarships are available).

Here are some comments from 2016 participants:

"The table discussion and watching how supportive each member becomes of one another
are what I liked most about GriefShare."

"The thing that was most helpful to me at GriefShare was the people ~ I didn’t feel like I was alone."

"It was helpful to hear the stories and viewpoints of others, as well as their responses to my comments."

"This GriefShare group has ‘lightened the load.’ "

"I liked the variety of the group’s experiences – some I didn’t relate with but others would help to explain.
I liked that we all understood that it is a time allotted to focusing on the sadness of death."

"
GriefShare has caused me to read Scripture on a daily basis."
