Using John Stott's study - Acts: Seeing the Spirit at Work
Led by Frank Mazza
Thursdays, 12noon Bring Your Own Lunch / 12:30 Study in the Fellowship Hall/MBC
No Sign up needed.
The Spirit moved in dramatic ways in the early church. The gospel was preached, thousands were added to their number, many were healed, and the good news about Jesus was spread across continents. Covering the exciting action of the Spirit in the years just following Jesus' life on earth, this study will open your eyes to the Spirit's power in the past and present and help you apply the riches of Scripture to your own life. John Stott was one of the world's leading and most-loved Bible teachers and preachers. In this Bible study guide you can explore Scripture under his guidance, enhancing your own in-depth study with insights gained from his years of immersion in God's Word.
Adult and Older Teen Sunday Class
Discipleship: Facing Difficult Issues Through the Lens of Beliefs and Love
Begins July 10
Sundays 8:45am, Fellowship Hall / Led by Pastor Stephanie and Table Leaders
As disciples we need to face complicated and difficult issues through the lens of what the Bible clearly states and our call to love. Do you feel that 'hot topics' have been reduced to memes and emotional firing ranges, with no safe place to voice questions, experiences, and concerns? This class' purpose is to create a place where honest dialogue can result without being debated with or judged. It won't be neat and tidy and it may create more questions, but as disciples, we need to look at every issue affecting humanity and know both what we believe, where possible, and how to be the love of Jesus at all times, with all people, and in all the places we go. Format: large group time and small table discussions with a leader.
Summer Book Study
Begins July 11
Robert Mulholland's The Deeper Journey: The Spirituality of Discovering Your True Self
Led by Pastor Stephanie
Mondays @ 7-8pm on Zoom
As you grow in the Christian faith, you come to a place where you realize that your faith isn't about merely replicating spiritual practices such as prayer and going to church, but the transformation of your whole self into a more Christ-like person. In The Deeper Journey, M. Robert Mulholland Jr. explores the false selves that you may be tempted to hide behind rather than allowing the sometimes painful work of Christ in your life. But when you allow this work to happen you will encounter your truest self and a greater love and compassion for the world.
