Adult Bible meets at 9:00 am in Dewitt Hall.
Bible study spring 2016: Acts of the Apostles
Fall-Winter Bible Study: The Gospel of Matthew, 9-10 am, De Witt Hall classroom
Our Bible Study Group continues its study on Sunday, 8 January 2017, with the Gospel of Matthew.
We use the Seattle Pacific University Lectio (www.spu/lectio/archives/acts) series, with supplemental text by The Collegeville Commentary series. We provide booklets for all participants of the Lectio materials and the Collegeville text is available for purchase at the first class meeting or arranged earlier with Bill Fay. In preparation for our study we encourage participants to read through the text in a modern version, such as The Message, or similar types of Bibles you might have at home, just to get a feel for the story. (Not required!) We will examine the text more closely in class. We share leadership for each week, but this is voluntary and not required. We have coffee and a snack to feed the body as we feed the spirit as well.
Please join us on the journey. All disciples and seekers of the Good News are welcome!
At various times throughout the year we schedule Adult Forums to augment our intentional Christian Formation program. Through the insights and wisdom of outside speakers, discussion of contemporary issues seen through the lens of our faith, and conversation about how our beliefs integrate our life as Christians in the world, we are formed and transformed. Adult forums are often held between services on Sunday. Extended programs may be offered on Wednesdays in Lent or Advent.
Adult Forums in recent years include: community organizing for gospel justice, sacred conversations on race and racial justice; webcasts from the Trinity Institute; Creation Care documentary film nights; Faithful Citizenship program http://www.logosproductions.com/store/adult-studies/faithful-citizen-starter-kit on Wednesdays in Lent.
