Bible Study Tuesdays at 10:30 am
Our Lenten Bible Study will be”The Case for Christ” by Lee Strobel. He is a former legal editor of the Chicago Tribune who started out trying to disprove the basics of Christianity. After a serious examination of the evidence, he was convinced that Jesus is indeed the Christ! Mr. Strobel has become a well respected apologist for the faith, with follow up books called “The Case For Faith,” and “The Case For a Creator.” Led by Rev. Chuck MacPherson.
Women’s Association Bible Study, 4th Monday at 1:30 pm
“What My Grandmothers Taught Me: Learning from the Women in Matthew’s Genealogy of Jesus,” taught by Sheila Farrer.
Tamar, Rahab, Ruth, Bathsheba, and Mary—Matthew names these women for a reason. How might Jesus have heard the stories of his grandmothers? What might the young Jesus have felt as he heard about his family? What might the stories of these women have added to his sense of identity, as part of a particular family in a particular time and place?
Have you thought about Jesus’ grandmothers? What can these Grandmothers-of-the-Faith teach us? Their stories will lead us into the gospel, the good news about Jesus Christ. By exploring these stories together, we will have a richer idea of what the good news is.
