"...for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day..."
-the Apostle Luke
Studying God's Word
Thomas Westra, Pastor
In the book of Acts, Luke writes:
"Now the Berean Jews were of more noble character than those in Thessalonica, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures every day to see if what Paul said was true." (Acts 17:11)
It is God's will that you and I spend time studying the scriptures. We do that privately, and that's important, but what a great privilege it is, as well, to study God's word together with our brothers and sisters to encourage one another in the faith.
This September, we will be offering our Bible Information Class online. Here, we go over the basic teachings of the Christian faith, which provides the foundation on which all the rest of your Bible study rests. By understanding the basics, you are able to read all of the Bible in its wider context and therefore better understand it. The class will consist of watching a brief video and a brief reading assignment on your own time each week, and then a Zoom class for an hour once a week. The class will last 12 weeks.
