Bible Study and Adult Christian Education

New Adult Sunday School Class - 2 Class Times

Come learn about the core texts for our faith! Richard Schramm will be leading a new study, using one of The Great Courses, Explore the New Testament from the Gospel of Matthew to the Book of Revelation.

The class meets every Sunday morning at 9:45 am in the Wesley Room and every Sunday evening at 5:00 pm in the Patio Room.

Bart Ehrman, Professor of Religion at the University of North Carolina, directs 24 half-hour video lectures. Crafted as a review of the 27 books of the New Testament, Dr. Ehrman combines theological research with archeology to assist in understanding each book's content, meaning, authorship, intended audience and historical accuracy.

As always, you can attend one, some, or all of the lectures. No homework is required. All written materials are supplied during the Sunday School class. All are welcome.
