Walking With God Bible Study
In her last few sermons Pastor Carly has been asking us, in one form or another, what does it mean to be a Christian and what can we do as Christians in today's world?
We will have a bible study, based on Adam Hamilton's study "The Walk". It will last for six weeks on Tuesdays beginning the last week of September (Sept. 29) and ending the first week in November (Nov. 3). The time will be from 1:30-2:30 P.M.This study is meant to be a simple guide for the Christian life designed for ordinary people whose faith is
sometimes messy. Do you wish to follow Jesus, to experience more of God in your life, and to grow to become the person God wants you to be and then, maybe, figure out how to use your faith to help not only you but others to a stronger faith in Jesus and a broader, firmer walk with God.
Walking with Jesus is a simple way of thinking about our Christian life. As followers of Jesus we are seeking to learn from Him, to emulate Him, to go where He wants us to go, to do what He wants us to do, and to walk on the journey of life with Him. Over the six weeks we will consider worship and prayer, listening and paying attention, service, giving, sharing and concluding with "the five practices from the cross.
This will be a multimedia study. You do not need to buy any materials for this class. We will follow all safe practices such as wearing a mask and practicing social distancing. I do need to know if you will be coming to this class, not only to determine how many materials I need to prepare but where we will meet (i.e., the middle school classroom or fellowship hall.) Please call me (Jackie Ackerman at 920-793-1594) or email me at firstname.lastname@example.org to let me know.
The image of walking with God or God walking with us is found throughout the Bible as a metaphor for the life of faith. Please let me know if you will be there. I look forward to sharing this material with you and growing in my own faith.
The Sermon on the Mount
Please join Pastor Carly for a six week study of the Sermon on the Mount. We will explore the passages from Matthew’s gospel with new insight from Dr. AJ Levine, an orthodox Jew who teaches New Testament classes at the School of Divinity in Vanderbilt University. We will meet in person on Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m. in Fellowship Hall. For those who prefer meeting online we will meet together using zoom on Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. Please call the office to reserve a spot in either class.
All you need for this study is a Bible or New Testament. The only preparation each week will be to read the passages we are studying that week.
The Wednesday class will meet on October 7, 14, 21 and November 4, 11 and 18. The Zoom class will met on Thursdays, October 8, 15, 22 and November 5, 12 and 19. Please call Pastor Carly with any questions or concerns.
