SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY – 11:45 a.m. – Room 222 – Beginning                   Sunday April 22

Getting To Know Your Bible  

Someone has called the Bible “the greatest book never read.” This spring, Dr. John Whitfield will be offering a Sunday morning class to help us get to know the Bible better.

The purpose of this class will be:

  • To help us learn about the content of the Bible, the kinds of materials it contains: history, saga, poetry, genealogy, etiology, myth, apocalyptic, prophecy, gospel, instruction, etc.
  • To help us get a feeling for the period of history covered by the Bible and place it in the context of Middle Eastern history.
  • To help us enlarge our knowledge of the Bible’s contents: What is it about? What are its great themes? What are its great moments or turning points?  What does it have to say to us today?
  • To help us become familiar with resources for studying the Bible on our own: concordances, analytical concordances, Bible commentaries, study Bibles, etc.
  • To invite you to consider a plan to read the Bible, and to draw closer to God in the process.
  • To help you feel more comfortable and confident in finding a specific location, book or character in the Bible.

 

This exciting study will begin on April 22 and will last for about 6 weeks, depending on your interests. Grab a cup of coffee, some treats, say hello to your friends and join us upstairs in Room 222.

7:00 p.m. – Room 222

                                                      A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23

Beginning Monday, April 9, the Monday Night Study Group will engage in a four week study of Philip Keller’s insightful book, “A Shepherd Looks at Psalm 23.” With a true shepherd’s experience and insight, Philip Keller leads the reader to remarkable places: to the greenest pastures of discovery and the coolest waters of fulfillment hidden in Psalm 23, the “Shepherd Psalm.” There are more than 1 million copies of this timeless classic in print! All are invited to be part of this class. We will gather on Monday evenings at 7:00 in Chapel Parlor. For a copy of the book or for more information, please see Rev. Mark Phillips. Why not join the group for an inspiring and insightful study of one of the best-loved Bible passages?

                                             

PRESBYTERIAN WOMEN 

There are two women’s bible study circles, Pikeville Circle – which meets on the first Wednesday of the month at 10:00 a.m. at Henry Ford Village and also Peace Circle – which meets on the first Tuesday of the month at 7:00 p.m. at the church. Both circles are using the Presbyterian Women Horizons study for 2017-2018: Cloud of Witnesses: The Community of Christ in Heaven by Melissa Bane Sevier. In nine lessons, Ms. Sevier invites us to explore major themes found in Hebrews, relate these themes to other parts of our faith tradition, and tie them together with the overarching motif of community. The community for which the letter, or homily, was written interacts, in a sense, with all communities of which we are a part, as we bring these groups with us wherever we go. This ever-present “great cloud of witnesses” (Hebrews 12:1) strengthens and encourages us as we “run with perseverance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus the pioneer and perfecter of our faith” (Hebrews 12: 1b-2).
