Fall Classes For All

Telling God’s Story

One goal is to help each person find the faith sharing style that best fits their gifts and personality. Topics include evangelism for introverts, planting spiritual seeds in everyday conversations, telling God’s story in your story, the “Jesus Can” Bible Study, and the Inside Story.

Between the Testaments: The Story of God’s People from Malachi to Matthew

Alden Bass | A117-118

The era between the Old and New Testaments was an incredibly eventful time for God’s people. This class will cover the major historical events of this period, as well as the important theological developments which form the backdrop to the New Testament. Special emphasis will be given to intertestamental writings, including the apocrypha, the pseudepigrapha, the Dead Sea Scrolls, and the works of Josephus and Philo.
