A New Kind of Adult Bible Study – What Does the Bible Say About Our Missions?
Would you like to be an active participant in a new kind of Bible study in Community of Faith? After our mission fair on October 30, we plan to kick off a new mission-focused adult Bible study, starting on November 6. Would you get up on Sunday mornings for three months in order to find out what the Bible says about why we do what we do in our outreach mission work at COF? Our outreach mission ministries include CLASP, the bicycle ministry, Nicaragua, SPARK, Covington Partners, Be Concerned, and our four PCUSA missions. We also have several “seasonal” missions, such as Transitions, the Angel Tree, and Buckhorn.
What is God calling us to do with our neighbors in our quest for Transformation? What if we discovered that our current mission activities and those in the future were part of God’s great plan in our neighborhood(s) in the world? What if, in addition to studying the Bible, you could hear from our own “missionaries”? What if you could take “field trips,” and see slides and videos, and have some hands-on involvement in our various ministries? What if these experiences led you to get involved, stay involved, or start a brand new mission ministry of your own? What new thing is God calling you to do? Join us on November 6 at 9:45 a.m. to begin a new adventure in Bible study and Christian education. We are even considering a “virtual” version of the study, if you can’t attend in person, but it won’t be quite the same as being there.
Our Philosophy of Christian Education
In keeping the pattern established by Jesus Christ during his ministry, we believe that service goes hand in hand with learning.
On Sundays and at various times throughout the week we offer classes for Bible study and Contemporary Issues for Adults.
The adult Sunday morning class beings at 9:40a with a discussion format based on a social justice topic.
Other opportunities include lectionary-based Bible studies on the church seasons of Lent (spring) and Advent (leading up to Christmas).
Children are welcomed in all aspects of church life– from worship to intergenerational activities to Church School.
Church School meets during worship on the 3rd-5th Sundays of the month.
