Fall 2017 Bible Study-Colossians & Philemon
The evening group will meet from 5:45 to 7:45 PM on September 12 through November 14.
The morning study will meet from 9:15 to 11:30 AM on September 12 through December 5.
The author of our study writes:
In the beginning, the Creator-King appointed humanity to be his imagebearers, to establish the earth as the realm of the kingdom of God. Heaven and earth would intersect, and God would dwell among a flourishing human community. The Old Testament story is largely Israel’s failure to accomplish this vocation. In the fullness of time, however, God sent Jesus, Israel’s ultimate king (“Messiah”), who, having dealt with humanity’s sin forever at his cross and resurrection, took up Israel’s stalled mission. The redeemed people of God—comprised now of Jew and Gentile—take up this vocation, bringing the good news of God’s reign in Christ to the nations.
We will take up the call Paul gave to the Colossian church in Colossians 3:1 “If then you have been raised with Christ,
seek the things that are above, where Christ is seated at the right hand of God.”
A Children’s Program is offered for children Pre-K and younger for the morning study only.
Registration will begin on August 27th. Books will be available at that time.
See you in September. Bring a friend!
