Electives for January 20th – February 24th

  • II Thessalonians| Rick Paquette| Sanctuary

    In 2 Thessalonians, we see the Apostle Paul’s continuing pastoral concern for and ministry to this young church, a ministry saturated with prayer and thanksgiving. In the first chapter, we find the apostle offering encouragement to the church as they suffer for the sake of the gospel.

    The second chapter of the letter focuses primarily on clearing up some confusion over the Day of the Lord, with particular attention on ‘the man of lawlessness.’ And in the final chapter, the apostle deals with the problem of some within the congregation who are unwilling to work. The apostle issues commands both to the idle and to the entire congregation for dealing with them.

  • Devoted to God | Ron Reed | Overflow

    The Bible calls us to holiness. Peter, in his first epistle, reasons that because God has called us into His Kingdom as His children, and because He is holy, we are to be holy. But what does it really mean to be holy? Since we fail so often how can we truly “walk in a manner worthy of God?” Can we achieve holiness in this life? Is it primarily our responsibility or God’s? How can we grow in such a way that both believers and unbelievers would say, “When I’m with that person I just sense an unusual presence of the Lord!”

    In this elective we will examine the central New Testament passages that give us a framework for practical Christian living. We will discuss how the gospel grounds us and directs our lives to be truly “devoted to God.”

  • Digital Media Challenge | Bryon & Missy Kauffman | Classroom 1*

    Tools exist to be used by their owner to accomplish a specific task. We would say that it is absurd for a plumber to be controlled by their plunger, a doctor to be ruled by their stethoscope or that a mechanic would be enslaved to his wrenches.  Yet the tool of technology has become the master of countless individuals, couples and families. Technology has changed the way we think, the way we communicate and what we value. Without intentional and purposeful submission of technology in our own lives to the authority of scripture we leave ourselves and our families at great risk of being controlled by the relentless demands of the little tool that we carry in our pocket. In this class we will learn about how technology is impacting our minds, behavior and attitudes and will discuss and explore strategies for putting technology in it its proper place.

  • Membership | Pastor Grossman | Classroom 2*

    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)

 

*Classrooms 1 & 2 are in the Fellowship Hall

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.
