Adult Bible Forum is a weekly study group which meets Sundays from 10:00am-11:00am in the Conference Room. Elizabeth Evans, M.Div. leads the discussion. Below are her answers to frequently asked questions:
–How do you choose what to study?
Class participants will propose the subject matter or sometimes I give them several choices and they select. Generally, we will study a book of the Bible. I have also taught topics such as Women in the New Testament, Doctrine of the Trinity, Search for the Historical Jesus, and Heroes and Heroines in the Old Testament.
–What are you studying now?
Genesis— Back to the Beginning.
–What is the class format?
We read aloud sections from a chapter of the Bible and then discuss them. Hearing the Bible is important. That way people discover things they did not know. I guide the discussion and provide historical/theological context where needed.
–Does the class meet in the summer? We meet year round.
All questions are welcomed. Anyone can drop in at any time. You need not worry about missing too many sessions or missing the start of a particular book. Just bring a Bible and join us. Reading ahead is encouraged, but not required. We do not have formal lectures.
