NEW ADULT BIBLE STUDY PROGRAM
TUESDAY EVENINGS ( APRIL 12 - MAY 31)
7:00 - 8:30 PM
@ THE MEETINGHOUSE
WEDNESDAY MORNING (APRIL 13 - JUNE 1)
9:00 - 10:30 AM
@ THE MEETINGHOUSE
Responding to requests from those who want a Bible Study opportunity for
those who work during the day, we will be offering a Bible Study program— called “Covenant” - for both a new Tuesday Evening Group and our
usual Wednesday morning adult study.
Covenant is an in-depth group Bible Study that centers around our relationships with God, with
each other, and with the world. This study overviews the whole story of scripture by moving
between the Old and New Testaments—discussing books from each in a way that shows the
interconnectedness of scripture as a whole. Each week includes a thought-provoking 20-minute
video conversation between biblical experts that stimulates further discussion and reflection among
the group members.
Covenant Bible Study creates a learning experience where scripture meets everyday experience— within and beyond the sphere of church life. It builds relationships with others as well as
confidence in scripture, as it provides an opportunity to better understand God's call, God's love,
and God's unexpected favor.
The full study extends over 24 weeks, but is divided into three 8-episode segments. The first
segment - Creating the Covenant examines how the Covenant community is created and
established. Copies of the participant guide will be available for the Creating the Covenant
segment ($20.00) or an electronic version can be purchased through a downloadable Covenant app
($9.99). To learn more you can visit www.covenantbiblestudy.com or speak with
Rev. Margaret Jay, who will be the facilitator for this program.
Scholarship Applications are available
in the church office. Please sign the list on the
office desk. Deadline for submittal: May 6, 2016.
