Class for Adults – 1 Corinthians
Begins Tuesday, October 4
at 6:30 PM
Join Pastor Susie for a seven-week study on Paul’s First Letter to the Corinthians in October and November.
We’ll use the book 1 Corinthians: Searching the Depths of God by New Testament scholar, Dr. Jaime Clark-Soles as our guide. Each session will include a short video and time to reflect on and discuss the week’s book chapter and related chapters of Paul’s letter.
Here’s a little more about the study from the publisher:
“1 Corinthians is one of the most gripping books in the Bible. In this letter, Paul, the complicated, layered apostle, writes to the people trying a wild new social experiment known as a Christian community. Not unlike the church today, this community dealt with factions, sexual immorality, gender issues, money issues, theological questions, lawsuits, problems in worship, and problems in leadership.
In 1 Corinthians: Searching the Depths of God, Jaime Clark-Soles explores these topics and the awe inspiring, breathtaking world of the first-century church. Examining the teachings of Paul, she addresses church history, the logic of the cross, spiritual gifts, death, afterlife and the resurrection, human sexuality, and the joys and challenges of living in community. Participants will learn to look at 1 Corinthians from a variety of viewpoints and apply its lessons to their own faith.”
Please RSVP to firstname.lastname@example.org and let her know if you plan participate in person or online. The class will meet on Tuesday evenings in Gabrielson Chapel and on Zoom at 6:30 PM. Class will not meet on Board of Stewards nights. Begins October 4 and concludes November 29. Books will be available for all participants at the first class. If you’d like to pick up a book at a different time, please contact Pastor Susie.
