Electives for June 2nd – August 25th

  • Proverbs | Dan & Tim Faust | Sanctuary

    Solomon was the son of David, king of Israel, a man after God’s own heart. He was also a king himself over the nation of Israel during the zenith of its power and influence in the world. On
    becoming king, he asked God for wisdom that he might rule well over His people. God granted his request for wisdom and blessed him with wealth, honor and fame as well. He wrote Proverbs to pass that wisdom on to those who follow. (a practice we would do well to follow with the gifts that God provides to us)

    But Solomon did not live up to the standards he put forth in
    Proverbs fell short of expectations. In this he provided yet another lesson for our lives: Do not look up to men for they will always
    disappoint in the end. This in no way diminishes the value of
    Proverbs for though Solomon was the author, he was the instrument of God’s hand to provide this teaching for our benefit. Proverbs 1:7 states the theme of the book as “the fear of the Lord is the beginning of knowledge”. Join us as we study this book of God’s wisdom.

  • Fruit of the Spirit | Dave Siegfried, coordinating | Sanctuary Overflow

    “Whatever else we may have, if we do not have character we have nothing. It is character that determines destiny.” – John Murray

    The character of every Christian matters to God.  He who has set us free from our bondage to sin, and has made us joint heirs with His Son, calls us to walk in the freedom of the Spirit and to bear the Fruit of the Spirit in our lives like the Lord Jesus Christ.  In this elective we will seek to better understand what a fruitful Christian life should be like, and we will discuss how to cultivate the kind of character that pleases God.

  • Membership | Pastor Grossman | Fellowship Hall*

    Surveying the biblical basis of church membership, this class will discuss the doctrine, government, discipline, and history of the Bible Fellowship Church.   This elective is particularly recommended for those considering church membership, or interested in learning more about this church.   (Six Weeks)

Worship Choir

Worship Choir is a great opportunity to use your gifts to praise our Lord. The choir rehearses Thursday nights from 6:45pm – 8:15pm in the Sanctuary. Musical selections range from Contemporary Christian to Spirituals to the Hallelujah Chorus from Handel’s Messiah. Choir season typically runs from Labor Day to Memorial Day and usually involves singing during the Worship Service two or three times per month.

Prayer Meeting

Every Wednesday evening from 6:15 PM to 7:15 PM, a prayer meeting is conducted for adults. Following songtime and a brief devotional from the Bible, prayer is offered in individual, small group, and corporate settings. Each week, a different focus for prayer is emphasized such as local and national political concerns, world missions, various ministries and outreaches of the church, needs of individuals and families within the congregation, or Christians persecuted around the world.

During the summer months the whole family is invited to REVIVE from 6:30-7:30PM.
