PASTOR JOHNSON TO LEAD ADULT BIBLE STUDY GROUP EXAMINING THE BOOK OF JOB

The Weekday Bible Studies at St. Timothy will take up the Book of Job this fall. After a summer break, we look forward to reading and discussing Bible stories as we look forward to growth in our faith and spiritual lives.

There is more to the story of Job than the first and last chapters, for it is the chapters in between that mirror man's own life struggles. Immersion: Job enables readers to enter the story and experience the trials of life through the eyes of Job. Here is a brief excerpt from the first chapter of this study:

What do you know about Job? In popular culture, the character Job is often identified with patience. ‘That woman has the patience of Job,’ we might hear someone say, reflecting on how gracefully she has borne problems….

“So take a moment to let go of what you know about Job, and prepare yourself to enter this book that is beckoning you actually to read it…. The questions of Job are questions that lurk at the heart of our faith: about storms, faithfulness, and the character of God.

Pastor Johnson will lead two groups each week, Tuesday evenings over Zoom, and Thursday mornings at St. Timothy, in Young Hall, with a Thursday Zoom option, as well. The groups will begin September 13 and 15 and run to the end of November.

If you would like to be a part of one of these groups, contact Pastor Johnson, pastor@st-timothy-church.org, or call the Office, (321) 259-3443. The study book will cost $12. There is also a Kindle e-book version available for $9.99. If you will be participating through distance learning, we can email you a link to order the study book directly. This course can also serve as an entry for those interested in membership at St. Timothy.

SUNDAY MORNING ADULT STUDIES ON THE HISTORY OF CHRISTIANITY

WHO WAS JUSTINIAN, AND WHY WAS HE IMPORTANT?


We probably never even heard of Justinian, but his influence on the empire and on Christianity was outsized, exciting, and perhaps even a bit racy. Talk about far reaching influence and prolonged reign! He had it – along with a powerful partner, Theodora. Listen to the details presented on his time as emperor. Come to Young Hall on Sunday, October 23rd; we start about 10:45 AM, shortly after worship.

SUNDAY SCHOOL WILL RESUME IN SEPTEMBER

Sunday School starts for another season. we invite children to come to Friendship Hall right after worship time. Inside, children can use the restroom if needed before class. Classes begin at 10:30 a.m. and will be kept short for now. Children younger than 6th grade will meet every other week with Ms. Mary Sue and Ms. Christine in the “Welcome Room” and the children in 6th grade and above will meet with Pastor Johnson in the large classroom at the north end of Friendship Hall.
