Pastor Mark will be offering a Bible Study this fall entitled “Covenant.” The class will take place each Sunday evening, from September 13th through November 1st, at 7 PM, in Hartford Hall.
This “offering” will be the first of a series of three-eight-week sessions. Those who choose to continue will start up again early in 2016. The student participant guides are $20 for the first eight weeks, or $60 for the entire series.
The Biblical concept of covenant speaks to an enduring commitment between God and God’s fruitful people. It’s a promise – to live in a loving relationship with and for each other.
So the purpose of Covenant Bible Study is to engage participants in conversations about this unique and special relationship – as well as our relationships with each other and the world around us – as we study the Bible together.
Covenant is based on the understanding that it is through community – through shared reflection and engagement – that we can best discover the Bible’s transformative power. It is rooted in the simple idea that we live well when we love well.
The goal of Covenant Bible Study is to deepen our understanding of scripture while also helping us respond together in answering God’s call to a faithful life in Jesus. So it embraces a learning experience that builds trust in others and confidence in scripture for each participant.
