Tuesday Night Bible Study
Parables: Stories for Life in God’s World

Session 6 on November 28, 2017

 

Parables-webFaith formation never ends! Adults as much as children can learn and grow in their faith. In addition to our weekly Adult Sunday School classes, we offer these monthly in-depth studies of the Bible and our faith.

Jesus was the master of the parable! Deceptively simple, these timeless stories were used by Jesus to bring new life to old ways. “A parable can help us comprehend God better, know ourselves more realistically, change what we value, and deal with people in healthier relationships. Parables show you what it means to forgive or fail to forgive; to show compassion or withhold it; to act decisively or allow the moment to pass. These are potentially life-changing stories.” – author Richard J. Henderson

Join us on the fourth Tuesday of each month at 7:00 p.m. in the Chapel Narthex. The cost of your resource book is $16. Please sign up on the bulletin board outside the church office. For more information, contact Pastor Sarah.
