This new Sunday evening study, led by Rev. Chris Owens, begins September 14. This study, arranged into three 8-week segments, centers on the biblical meaning of covenant— God’s enduring commitment to us, and our enduring commitment to God and to one another. We will do far more than just discuss the meaning of the biblical text. We will discover how we each live out God’s covenants in our everyday lives as disciples of Jesus. So get ready to go deep!

Second Corinthians: Living Letters in Christ
Dates Sept 9 - Dec 16, 2014 (14 lessons)
Location Madeline Young's house
Time 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
If you are looking for a small group bible study, this may be the one for you. This group has been meeting for many, many years and has become a church family during this time. We are very close group but welcome anyone that wants to participate. Participation is open to anyone of any church or those seeking to know more about God. This fall we continue our studies with Second Corinthians. It is a 14 lesson series which explores Paul's continuing relationship with the church at Corinth. As the author of the series explains, " We could be forgiven for thinking that Paul's gospel message was fully formed from the moment he started writing letters to expanding churches. It's not until we spend some time with him as he contends with threats on every side that we appreciate the growth of his personal theological understanding. Out of this crucible of danger, deceit and despair recorded in 2 Corinthians comes Paul's most profound statements of discipleship, ministry and calling, and faithfulness and service to the truth he finds in Jesus Christ. We experience Paul as he is: His writing is at times raw and at others rejoicing; scolding; begging; enticing his brothers and sisters in Christ to become living letters honoring God with every fiber of their being."
Please consider joining us for this amazing journey with Paul.
