Sunday School ZOOM Bible Study: The Epistles of John

10:15 – 11:15am

The Epistles of John focuses on two main themes: belief in Jesus Christ and love for one another. These themes are so interrelated it is nearly impossible for them to be treated separately. For the author, those themes focus on God’s love for the world through Jesus’ sacrifice for our sins. Through that act of love the author declares that "God is Love", and writes to us, to live lives of love for all people as our response to God’s love. This study is designed to help us know the love of God for the world, all people, through Jesus. It will help us to know the importance of being in community with one another to help us learn, grow, and be nurtured, together, in the faith God give to us. Ultimately, this study is designed to help us best live our lives of faith knowing God abides in us, and in all people; helping us all to imitate God’s Love in our walks of faith. Come join us for a wonderful time of learning and fellowship.

Sunday School Bible Study

Wednesday Morning ZOOM Bible Study: 10:00-11:30

Isaiah

The book of Isaiah begins the prophetic books of the Old Testament. It is a book of God’s judgment and salvation. The first 39 chapters depict God’s judgment and the last 27 chapters depict God’s saving work. It is interesting to note that there are 39 books in the Old Testament and 27 in the New Testament. God’s grace is seen abundantly through various Messianic prophesies. Isaiah reveals God as, The Holy One of Israel (1-4) who punishes His rebellious people (1:2). One question we will struggle with is, "Does, and/or how does God punish God’s 'rebellious’ people?"

We will see central passages of five aspects of Jesus’ saving grace in 52:13-53:12:

  • 52:13-15 - His wholehearted sacrifice.
  • 52:53:1-3 - His perfect character.
  • 53:4-6 - His atonement bringing peace with God.
  • 53:7-9 - His payment for transgression.
  • 53:10-13 - His death for the effects of sin.

Isaiah’s name means: The Lord Saves

Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Congregation Book Study

Monday Evening ZOOM Bible Study:

Acts

Beginning on May 26, our Monday Evening Bible Study will begin an in-depth study on the book of Acts! The book of Acts has many names: Acts, Acts of the Apostles, and Luke-Acts (since the author of the Gospel of Luke also wrote Acts). Even though Acts is filled with history, it is not just a history book. Acts is filled with God’s Promise to always be with God’s people.

What I believe we will gain from this study - is that Acts was also written specifically for us, too. As we read and discuss how individuals grew in the faith God gave them, we, too, have that same promise that God will continue to teach and nurture us in faith God gives us.

Acts also gives a great depiction of the growth of the early Christian Church; called to grow from Jerusalem, to Judea, to Samaria, and to the ends of the earth. Since we are in the process of physically growing God’s Church at St. John’s, and since we, also, are to grow and be nurtured in the faith God gives us, come join us as learn about and continue to grow God’s Church throughout our world.

We meet each Monday night on ZOOM, 6:30-8:00pm. Come join us. All are welcome.
