Summer Weekly Topics (room 212)
Parables of Matthew (Choir Room)
Studying the parables in the Gospel of Matthew.
Transform (summer quarterly Adult Bible Studies) (room 211)
The lessons this quarter begin with a look at the ministry of the Holy Spirit that brings new life to us as members of the body of Christ. Jesus tells the disciples in John’s Gospel that he must leave so that the Comforter or Holy Spirit could come. The Spirit will lead and guide us into all truth and bring gifts and graces to all who will receive them. This transforming power prepares us for ministry in the world.
Life Together: The Classic Exploration of Christian Community (room 209)
After his martyrdom at the hands of the Gestapo in 1945, Dietrich Bonhoeffer continued his witness in the hearts of Christians around the world. His Letters and Papers from Prison became a prized testimony to Christian faith and courage, read by thousands. Now in Life Together we have Pastor Bonheoffer's experience of Christian community. This story of a unique fellowship in an underground seminary during the Nazi years reads like one of Paul's letters. It gives practical advice on how life together in Christ can be sustained in families and groups. The role of personal prayer, worship in common, everyday work, and Christian service is treated in simple, almost biblical, words.

THURSDAY NIGHT ADULT STUDY: GOSPEL FLUENCY (Fellowship Hall)
Thursday night from 6:30 to 8 pm.
All adults are invited to become more fluent in the language of the gospel. The gospel can bring salvation but also is a catalyst for everyday life change. The gospel should impact us not just theologically but also practically. From discipling to parenting, the good news gives us the blueprint for how to function within these spheres in a way that glorifies Christ. Gospel fluency must first take root in our hearts before we can expect it to blossom in our respective ministries. Whether it is parenthood or missions, if we are not gospel fluent in our thought life, then we won’t be in my speech. If we are not gospel fluent in our speech, then we won’t be in our evangelism or discipleship. This evening of worship and practical study is informed by God’s Word and “Gospel Fluency” by Jeff Vanderstelt.
