ADULT BIBLE STUDY: WEDNESDAYS AT 9:30 AM
Back in 2015 we did a study of the book of Revelation. This Apocalypse is one of the most engaging and disputed books in the Bible. It has inspired great works of art and music, and it has also fed social upheaval and speculation about the coming end of the world. Is it true that all faithful Christians can expect to be whisked up from the earth into heaven in an event known as the Rapture? Who are the 144,000 envisioned to play a key role in the apocalyptic drama? What is the final battle of Armageddon about?
In this post-Easter series, we will briefly explore the message of this Book and continue on to discover why it has played such a volatile role in Western culture and how it continues to be meaningful to contemporary readers.
We are meeting weekly on Tuesdays at 9:30-10:30 a.m. and will conclude on May 25. We will gather in the upstairs Youth Room of the Community Center. Unless plans change, meet in the Conference Room, masked, to be escorted to the room.
MEN OF FAITH BIBLE STUDY
This Tuesday, May 24th at 10:00 join Pastor Eric+ in the Prayer Chapel as we continue our study of the shortest books in the bible! This week we will study the Book of Jude. Don’t let its size fool you - this short epistle is packed with power!
FAITH EARLY LEARNING CENTER UPDATE
Faith Early Learning Center will not be offering services for families during the 2022-23 school year. However, we fully intend to be offering a wonder-filled Christ centered program in the fall of 2023.
After a long hiatus we are happy to announce the return of the Voices of Faith Choir to the 10:15 a.m. Sunday Worship Service! Rehearsal is at 9:15. All are welcome!
