The Thursday morning Bible study is focusing on “Six Themes in the Book of Matthew.” It meets Thursdays from 10 to 11:30 a.m. in room 2 in the annex, and anyone can drop by or join the study at any time. Extra study books are available.
“This study focuses on Jesus as Messiah as a beginning point for considering Matthew’s perspective of the life and ministry of Jesus Christ. Jesus’ important teachings are explored and we find how they shape our Christian lives today,” a description of the study book says. “They give the church — as the community of faith — directions for its mission and ministries in the world.”
The class will discuss these questions on each theme: What does the biblical theme mean? What is the meaning of this biblical theme for the life of faith? What does the biblical theme mean for the church at this point in history for action?
This group will meet Dec. 5 (Lesson 4, part 2, Following Jesus) and Dec. 12 (Lesson 5, part 1), and then break for three weeks; starting to meet again Jan. 9. This particular study will finish by the end of January, and in February a study of the book of Exodus will begin. Plan now to set aside the time for this midweek Bible study time. Facilitators are Pastor Jody Beth and Philip Melton. Contact Pastor Jody Beth for more information and to sign up, email@example.com, 213-6625.
