Adult Bible Forum is a weekly study group which meets Sundays at 11:15 am in the Conference Room. Elizabeth Evans, M.Div. leads the discussion.
Starting February 18, the Adult Bible Forum will study one of Paul’s letters, the book of 1 Corinthians. Paul is, of course, a major contributor to the New Testament and 1 Corinthians represents a letter to a church whose questions and issues mirror many modern problems. The class will begin at 11:15 in the conference room. Everyone is invited.
–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?
–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.
