Grace of God and Flaws of Men

Abraham, Isaac, and Jacob stand towering among Old Testament leaders. They have always been celebrated for their faith, obedience, and accomplishments. But to only see their success without also seeing their flaws would alter the central message of the Bible—humans are sinners, and it is the grace of God that saves and transforms them through Christ Jesus.

In this Bible study based on his book, Anand Mahadevan takes a fresh, true perspective on the lives of these three heroes and their many failures that will leave you captivated by the beauty, patience, and transforming power of God’s grace.

The Timothies Class will be watching and discussing this study available through righnowmedia.org.

Location: Room 101 (ground floor of the Education Bldg.)


Minor Prophets, Easter Songs, Galatians: Finding Life

A warm welcome awaits you in the “Together in Christ” class as a variety of studies will be offered from March 3, through June 30, 2019.

On March 3, we begin with a 9 week series on the “Minor Prophets”, exploring how this portion of Scripture relates to our 2019 world.

On April 28, we transition to the New Testament, beginning a 9-week study in Galatians, Paul’s great teaching on the Gospel of Grace.

We also will have 3 special classes—Easter, when we explore some well-loved Easter music, and a class on April 14, where we consider the life of one of God’s special missionary servants.

On June 30, our last class before summer break, we will share brunch together.
