In the “Through the Bible” course series, we have reached the point immediately after Israel transitioned from being a loose federation of tribes into being a united kingdom. The first king was named Saul, and he soon created difficulties for himself. The LORD realized that while Saul was a tall, strong and gallant man who appealed to the people, he was unreliable at carrying out His instructions. The LORD needed to make a change and to choose a new leader. That leader was David.
David was frequently called “a man after the LORD’s own heart,” but David also ran into troubles. He did not always resist temptations, and the LORD had to punish him and the people of Israel for his misdeeds. Unlike Saul, however, David always returned to the LORD, and his life reflects the scenario of sin and repentance that is common in the lives of all believers. How the LORD dealt with him clearly illustrates God’s mercy to his less-than-perfect people. After a lot of trauma and false starts, the Israelite kingdom would finally land in the hands of David’s son Solomon, a man rich and wise in some ways, but very foolish in others. The kingships of David and Solomon were the high point of Israel’s history, and these men also wrote some of what is called the “wisdom literature” of the Old Testament.
The fall semester will be split into three courses of four/five sessions each, which will feature David’s route to the kingship, David’s triumphs and tragedies as king and Solomon’s kingship. Familiar stories will be intermingled with those that are rarely presented.
The class sessions will be about an hour long and will be taught on Thursday evenings at 7:00 pm beginning September 6 in the church library and finishing before the month of December gets too hectic. Dr. Eggert will lead these classes. The textbook will be the Bible (any English translation), supplemented by handouts and PowerPoint displays of key points, maps and illustrations.
This fall is a good point to join these classes, so look at your schedule now and see if you can find a way to fit them in because they will improve your knowledge of the historical setting of many Biblical teachings.
“To The Ends of the Earth” Bible Study Begins Sept. 23rd
Pastor Arndt will kick off Sunday Morning Bible Study on September 23rd between services with a study on the new film “To The Ends of the Earth”. The final film in the series that began with “The Road to Emmaus”, “To The Ends of the Earth” follows Paul on his journey to Philippi as he brings the good news of a savior to people from all walks of life. We will watch the film in the first class and further explore the power of the Gospel for ourselves and all people over the next four Sundays.’

Offerings can be allocated for special projects for both the Church and the School. Using Vanco for electronic offerings requires you to create an online profile on their web site.
The offering is not an obligation of what we “should” do. It is a free and willing expression of gratitude to God for all that He has done for us. As convinced Christians, we give Him our best because He has given us His best. Visitors need not feel obliged to participate in this offering.
