WED EVENING TEACHING THROUGH END OF FALL SEMESTER
Wed., Nov. 15th, we will begin spending a couple of weeks studying “the Bible Jesus read”: the Old Testament.
Jesus, himself, continually used the Old Testament scriptures (the only Scriptures in existence at the time) to give evidence of Himself as messiah and God. To the religious leaders of the day, Jesus said, “You study the Scriptures [the Old Testament] diligently because you think that in them you have eternal life. These are the very Scriptures that testify about me.” (John 5:39)
Nov. 15th – Introduction & Job
Nov. 22nd – No activities due to Thanksgiving holiday
Nov. 29th – Psalms & Proverbs
NOTE: So as to avoid the lengthy holiday break, we will begin our systematic study of Revelation when we resume in January, 2018.
QUOTE of the WEEK
“A scared world needs a fearless church.” – A.W. Tozer
LAUGHTER IS GOOD MEDICINE
Finding one of her students making faces at others on the playground, Ms. Smith stopped to gently reprove the child. Smiling, she sweetly said, “You know, Bobby, when I was a little girl I was told that if I made ugly faces my face would freeze and always stay like that.” Bobby looked into her face and replied, “Well, Ms. Smith, you can’t say your weren’t warned.”
