“Living the Covenant” 8 week Bible study begins May 2nd
Tuesdays, May 2nd – June 20th , 6:00-7:30pm.
Bill Brawner and Jimmy Lawrence, leading
Living the Covenant Bible study focuses on how the community of faith lives out the covenant in faithful love—how it is applied to actual relationships in daily life. Book may be purchased at the first class.
The scripture readings included in these episodes examine the practical challenges of faithful covenant life exploring leadership challenges among tribal chieftains, kings and prophets, and spiritual and political crises. They look for practical wisdom and guidance in the teachings of Israel’s sages, the letters of Paul, and more. By demonstrating how people of vastly different cultures came together in a common purpose, the study shows how faithful love is the root of the covenant life.

Studying the growth of the early church in Acts, Pentecost and Jesus’ teaching in the Gospel of Matthew, this Bible study will delve into the Scripture passages used by our pastors in worship which come from the Lectionary . Using the Revised Common Lectionary Scripture passages as a base of our study will hopefully make worship take on a greater depth of meaning. Come join this discussion based summer study!
