Early Service Learning Opportunity:

What? A study of the book, “The Minor Prophets: God Still Speaks,” facilitated by Gary Goss.

When? 9:45am on Sunday mornings, except for the last Sunday of each month.

Where? Meets in the Dining Room located on the lower level.

Summary: Be honest. When did you last read a book like Obadiah? Or Nahum? Or perhaps the better question is “Have you ever read Obadiah?” or “Where do I find Haggai”? The Minor Prophets form the last 12 books of the Old Testament. We are generally unfamiliar with both the historical context and the overall spiritual message of these books. Today when we use a word like prophecy, or if someone is called a prophet, our usual understanding is that this refers to interpreting events that are still to come. But this was not the primary purpose of the prophet in the Old Testament. Rather the prophet explained or interpreted the present from God’s perspective. He was the one who spoke for God. In the Minor Prophets, we will hear the voice of God speaking to us in a fresh way. It will speak to us as individuals and as a spiritual fellowship in the Church.”

 2nd Service Learning Opportunity:

What? A study of the book, Forgotten God, facilitated by Don Cairns.

When? 10:45 am on Sunday mornings, except for the last Sunday of each month.

Where? Meets in Brown Parlor, located on the second floor.

Summary: In Forgotten God, Pastor Francis Chan offers a compelling invitation to understand, embrace, and follow the Holy Spirit’s direction in our lives. Chan contends that we’ve ignored the Spirit for far too long, and we are reaping the disastrous results. Thorough scriptural support and compelling narrative form form Chan’s invitation to stop and remember the One we’ve forgotten, the Spirit of the living God. This class begins each week with a fellowship time and continues with a discussion time that is focused on life-application.
