|NEW ELECTIVES AT FAITH ACTS: Be a part of the fun at Faith Acts! Our home-cooked dinner is at 5:15 p.m. and classes start at 6:15 p.m. Three new classes have just begun. Yes – Your Question, Part 2 (led by Bill Patterson) – Library. How do I defend the Bible? Is Christ a credible historic figure? Did God allow disbelief? How do you know that Christianity is the one worldview? Timely and challenging topics are covered in this second of six DVD sessions by Ravi Zacharias that answer students’ questions from open forums at several universities. He Cares for You (Bill Teague) – Chapel. Ours are tough times. News of terrorism, famine, war, and disease fill the headlines. A growing economy seems to have left too many behind. The family is fractured and Christian faith is challenged at every turn. The Apostle Peter wrote his first letter to Christians living in a time not all that dissimilar to ours. First Peter is a letter of realistic encouragement and unbounded hope given to people who need both. Each session explores the situation of Peter’s lst century friends and his message to them and will also listen for God’s message to us through Peter. Jesus, The Son (led by Bob Taylor) – Room 6. Jesus, the Son. What does the Bible mean by this? Many people and groups are called “son” in the Bible, why then when applied to Jesus is it so important? Why does a large portion of the religious world hear this term and misunderstand it? Do we as 21st century American Christians understand the fullness of its meaning? Come to our Faith Acts adult elective to explore these and other questions as we search the scripture together.|
|PASSOVER SEDER: Mark your calendars – Saturday, April 11th. Our Seder will take place in Fellowship Hall starting at 6:00 p.m. We will be providing more information as well as posting signup lists as we get closer. This will be a good fellowship time that is both fun and educational for all ages.|
|“TWELVE EXTRAORDINARY WOMEN” BIBLE STUDY: Beginning Tuesday, February 10th, the Women’s Tuesday Evening Bible Study will begin a new journey of study. The group will meet on the 2nd and 4th Tuesday of each month, from 7:00 to 8:30 p.m., in the homes of Kay Brown (2nd Tuesday) and Carolyn Booz (4th Tuesday). In this study, we will look in-depth at the lives of 12 women in the Bible. Some, like Ruth and Martha, may be very familiar. Others, like Anna and Lydia may be women you have rarely heard referenced. Join this group as we embark on a year of studying “Twelve Extraordinary Women”! For more information on the study and materials needed, or to indicated interest in attending the Bible Study, please contact Kay Brown in the church office (215-752-3200) or via e-mail at email@example.com.|
