Month: May 2016

P.S. — Adult Sunday School

The new topic for Adult Sunday School, beginning this coming Sunday,  is  Progress of Redemption and the Unity of Scripture, taught by one of our members, Tim Sturgill.  For those of you who may not know him, Tim is a retired Air Force Chaplain who served on active duty for 28 years, in assignments all over the globe.  Prior to his affiliation with Christ Our Hope, and his confirmation as an Anglican Christian, he was an ordained Baptist minister.  We hope many of you will be able to attend this class and be challenged by some excellent teaching.  Once more, a course description from Tim:

“The awesome God of the universe has chosen to do a work on earth.  He has given us His Word as a revelation of what he has done, is doing, and will do.  This course of study will examine the “sayings” and “doings” of God in a way that will authenticate the unity of a book that contains individual books that are as diverse as historical narrative is from poetry, as it is from prophecy, as it is from letters written to friends.  How does the Song of Solomon relate to Leviticus?  Does Job have anything in common with Ephesians?  How can God command the Israelites to kill men, women, children and animals and yet through Jesus instruct us to love our enemies?  The unfolding of this course will pay off in a Bible that makes sense in its parts, but more importantly, make sense in its entirety. You will see afresh the awe-ful work of God!”

New Adult Sunday School Topic This Week

Beginning Sunday, May 29, Tim Sturgill will be teaching the Adult Sunday School on the topic  Progress of Redemption and the Unity of Scripture.  Here is Tim’s description of the course.

The awesome God of the universe has chosen to do a work on earth.  He has given us His Word as a revelation of what he has done, is doing, and will do.  This course of study will examine the “sayings” and “doings” of God in a way that will authenticate the unity of a book that contains individual books that are as diverse as historical narrative is from poetry, as it is from prophecy, as it is from letters written to friends.  How does the Song of Solomon relate to Leviticus?  Does Job have anything in common with Ephesians?  How can God command the Israelites to kill men, women, children and animals and yet through Jesus instruct us to love our enemies?  The unfolding of this course will payoff in a Bible that makes sense in its parts, but more importantly, make sense in its entirety. You will see afresh the awe-ful work of God!

Grace and peace….Tim
Remember, Sunday School begins at 9:30 each week, with coffee and snacks available.  Hope to see many of you there!

Dear friends and supporters in the churches,

Cleaning Help Needed

From Amanda Roberts:

I will be cleaning our house on Hemlock tomorrow (Wednesday, May 18)  from 9 to 3:30 and could really use some help if anyone is available and willing at some point during that timeframe. I am making a list of odd jobs that need to be done and will have cleaning supplies on hand. I can do this by myself, but it would be really nice to have someone working alongside me. (More motivation!)  If you need directions or have questions, please give me a call. (318)364-0064
