God With the People - Deep Dive

to Nov 20

God With the People - Deep Dive

In conjunction with our God with the People Worship Series kicking off September 8th, this Deep Dive Bible study will focus on the key people, places, and confusing events of the Hebrew Bible. This 10-week study with Pastor Wes will use The Books of the Bible: A Covenant History as a guidebook and the cost of the book is included in the price of the class.

This straight-forward retelling of the Hebrew Bible cuts the distraction of reading the traditional Biblical narratives and makes the story flow in a chronological narrative. Come ready for a refreshing, nourishing study of some of the most confusing parts of scripture. You will be surprised by the nuggets of gold hidden in these texts.

 

Cost: $20

Create!

Too often, it seems, we’re just too busy to stop and play. We’re too stressed to experience the calming nature of creating something with our own hands or to finally finish that project started a while ago! It’s time to indulge our creative spirit.

Let’s come together weekly and enjoy a leisurely Saturday morning where we work on our favorite projects, encourage others in their crafts, and make new friends in the process. Like the old-fashioned sewing circle, this will be a great time to create cool things, work on whatever creative project we have going, color, scrapbook, mend, knit... and connect with each other about all kinds of things going on in our lives.
