Wednesdays at 6:30 p.m.
The Book of Revelation Bible Study will resume on August 14
Strangeness is everywhere: beasts, bowls, a bejeweled city, a great whore drunk on blood, a pregnant woman clothed with the Sun, a lamb with seven eyes and seven horns, cryptic numbers, a fallen Babylon, and a New Jerusalem. And that’s just a partial list! On Wednesday nights, Pastor Richard is teaching his first Bible study on the Book of Revelation, a literary masterpiece and most vivid letter in the New Testament. Pastor Richard will demystify the strange language and show that Revelation is a pastoral letter urging the church to be true in faithful witness, to live worship-infused lives, and to never sway in one’s commitment to the way of Christ, the Lamb. Revelation calls for total allegiance to the Lamb with the assurance of that future day when Christ returns and makes all things new.
When is Gay Christian 101 going to be taught again? Fall 2019
Unclobber the biblical clobber passages. Discover God's extravagant and inclusive welcome to all. Over the period of six weeks, Pastor Richard discusses the six “clobber” passages that are often used to oppress LGBTQ people. Then the class focuses on the positive Scriptures and role models for LGBTQ Christians. Gay Christian 101 has been spiritually liberating to many, including family members and straight allies of LGBTQ folks. It's also common for people to take the class again as a refresher course or visit from another church. The Wednesday night class allows folks to attend the class while keeping their commitments to their home church on Sundays. Visitors, whether from another church or no church at all, are welcome.
