PASTOR JOHNSON TO LEAD ADULT BIBLE STUDY:
Jesus Calls Us
Jesus Calls Us
"Jesus calls us o'er the tumult." The first line of this well-known hymn, written by Cecil Frances Alexander, provides an apt starting point for this edition of the Augsburg Adult Bible Studies. We have certainly experienced a tumultuous season of our lives recently, both globally and individually. United by experiences of personal and corporate tumult, we join together to listen for God speaking through scripture. During this quarter we will walk with many biblical characters facing their own tumultuous times: A prodigal son longing for home. Jesus' followers facing their emptiness after his crucifixion. A new church stirred by the Holy Spirit. The final line of "Jesus calls us o'er the tumult" reminds us why Jesus is calling us: "Christian, follow me." As we spend thirteen sessions studying Bible stories and focusing on the theme "Jesus Calls Us," may we be empowered, like the disciples before us, to heed Jesus' call and follow him. (Introduction to Jesus Calls Us, p. 4)
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 May 2 and 4 and run to mid July.
If you would like to be a part of one of these groups, contact Pastor Johnson, firstname.lastname@example.org, or call the Office, (321) 259-3443. The study book will cost $4. If you will be participating through distance learning, we can mail you 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
NEW ADULT CLASS BEING ORGANIZED FOR SUNDAY MORNINGS!
Sunday Morning Adult Class will be starting a “Book of Faith” study on the Gospel of John in about a month, when the current lecture series is completed. Again we will meet after worship at about 10:45 AM. This course will have a book for you to use. The book will cost $8.00. The length of the course will be about 12 to weeks. See Phil Stall to reserve your book (already ordered) and the class.
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.
