THE NAMES OF GOD

When: Wednesdays, beginning September 22, 9:30-11:15am

Where: Zoom

 Did you know that there are 23 names for God, Jesus and the Holy Spirit in the Bible? Melissa Spoelestra, an excellent author and speaker, guides us through fascinating Old Testament and New Testament history into a deeper understanding of the Bible and God. We
aim to increasingly sense God’s love and nearness during this 7-week Zoom class. Click here to purchase the required participant workbook.

THE 400 YEARS OF SILENCE

When: Wednesdays, beginning September 22, 6:00-7:15pm

Where: Zoom

Join Brian Chitester for this for this 6-week study. If you’ve ever flipped from the last page of the Old Testament, to the first page of the New Testament, you’ve just skipped over 400 years of history in a single turn of the page. Have you ever wondered what, exactly, happened during those 400 years? Who was in control? What people, groups, and events shaped the world into which Jesus was born?  In those 400 years, countless events, not mentioned in the Old or New Testaments, had a profound impact on the world of Jesus and the early Christian Church. This class will explore those ‘silent years.’

ORIGINAL BLESSING

When: Thursdays, beginning September 23, 6:30-8:00pm
