Winter Wednesday Evening Bible Study: The Gospel of Luke
Begins Wednesday, January 9, 6:00 p.m.
You are invited to join Pastor Peter for the winter Bible study that begins on Wednesday evening, January 9. The study is open to all, and no previous Bible study experience is needed. Pastor Peter provides materials for the entire study, so if you need to miss a session or two it is easy to keep up as you move through the book.
The study time concludes at 7:00 p.m. in time for choir members to get to choir by 7:15 p.m. The study is six weeks long, concluding on February 13.
The Gospel of Luke is the gospel that guides our worship life for this year. This study of Luke will be unique. It will look at the overview of the gospel at the first session, but the remaining five sessions will look at the unique features in Luke’s Gospel: the Christmas story and how that sets the stage, the parables of Jesus, Jesus as healer, Jesus’ call to justice and Luke’s emphasis on meals as a sign of God’s presence.
Plan to attend this winter study. The Bible study material can be downloaded here.
