During Sunday School
BE DYNAMIC (ACTS 1-12): EXPERIENCE THE POWER OF GOD’S PEOPLE!
Facilitated by: Team of Volunteers
“The ministry of the Holy Spirit is not a luxury; it is an absolute necessity,” writes celebrated author and respected pastor Warren Wiersbe. In his first of two books covering Acts, Be Dynamic focuses on Peter’s ministry, mostly in Israel and centered in Jerusalem. Through explaining Luke’s record of the Gospel’s advancement and church expansion, Wiersbe opens the door to understanding the work of the church today.
Using hard-hitting quotes from recognized names like St. Augustine and John Bunyan, Wiersbe proves himself as a well-read author and gifted writer. The depth of his study is astounding, yet the accessibility of his text for every age group is evident as well. He proves what Luke intended-for Acts to be interpreted not as the apostles’ glorious acts, but as the life-changing acts of the Holy Spirit. The same Spirit lives in believers today, the same God calls followers to expand His church, and the same basic problems still arise within the church, but the same power available then is still available now to change the nations.
There is a Men’s Bible Study at the Church or a local restaurant each Tuesday morning at 8:00 AM called Forge Men!
This autumn, the men will be walking through the Book of Romans, one step ahead of Sunday’s message. In preparation, Pastor James will be leaning into Pastor Warren Wiersbe’s study book, Be Right. Together, participants will refresh their own understanding and appreciation of what Martin Luther describes as “The most important letter ever written,” and recommit to “living right” with God, oneself, and others. Begins, Tuesday, Sept. 5, 8:00 am, at Mama Jane’s Eatery on the westside of Warren. As iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another. – Proverbs 27:17
“Women’s Bible Study” meets on Wednesday mornings at 10:30 am at the church.
The Women’s Bible Study group which meets every Wednesday in the Fellowship Hall at PCC will relaunch on Wednesday, Sept. 13, 10:30 am. The group would love to welcome more participants as Renee Magnuson leads a study on O.S. Hawkins book, The Bible Code: Finding Jesus in Every Book in the Bible. In The Bible Code, O.S. Hawkins takes readers from Genesis to Revelation as he illuminates Scripture through the light of Christ. In Exodus, He is the Passover Lamb. In Deuteronomy, He is the Bread of Life. In Song of Solomon, He is our Bridegroom. Participants will understand Jesus’ presence in the Old Testament in a new way as they journey through every book of the Bible.
“This has helped me see the Old Testament in a whole new way!
I’m seeing Jesus where I hadn’t before!”
