Community Bible Study - Peoria Day Class

Mar 2, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

Community Bible Study is a non- denominational Bible study.  We will be studying The Red Sea to the Jordan River.  It looks at Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers which tell the story of how God delivered His chosen people, the israelites, from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation.  This is not just a history lesson, but it tells the story of a holy God's faithfulness to aweak and sinful people like us.  Don't be surprised by how practical the topics in these Old Testament books really are.  Because of Biblical themes like doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intercession, and failure and repentance, the opportunities for spiritual growth offered in this course are plentiful.  

Small groups for men and small groups for women meet to discuss lessons and then everyone gathers to hear practical insight to living what we learn from God's word together.  Children's ministry includes infant, toddler, preschool and early school age children.  There are trained, caring teachers who share a Bible story, craft, music, and games with the children and a light snack is served. Reservations for children are requested.

Community Bible Study - Peoria Day Class

Mar 16, 2017 from 9:30 AM to 11:30 AM

Community Bible Study is a non- denominational Bible study.  We will be studying The Red Sea to the Jordan River.  It looks at Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers which tell the story of how God delivered His chosen people, the israelites, from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation.  This is not just a history lesson, but it tells the story of a holy God's faithfulness to aweak and sinful people like us.  Don't be surprised by how practical the topics in these Old Testament books really are.  Because of Biblical themes like doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intercession, and failure and repentance, the opportunities for spiritual growth offered in this course are plentiful.  

Small groups for men and small groups for women meet to discuss lessons and then everyone gathers to hear practical insight to living what we learn from God's word together.  Children's ministry includes infant, toddler, preschool and early school age children.  There are trained, caring teachers who share a Bible story, craft, music, and games with the children and a light snack is served. Reservations for children are requested.
