CENTRAL ADULT WEDNESDAY NIGHT ONLINE CLASSES

December 9 through December 23 – Wednesdays at 7 pm

Delighting in God’s Word

Is reading the Bible easy or hard for you? Do you read the Bible because you feel like you should or because you enjoy it? If asked to be candid, a number of Christians might confess reading the Bible more out of a sense of obligation than out of a sense of privilege. So how does one get out of a rut? How can one start off the year seeking God through His word with heart, mind, soul, and strength?

During December, the adult midweek class will explore what it means to delight in God's word. We'll hear from fellow Christians about their favorite Scriptures and what gets them fired up about God's word. We'll hear from one another about practical things we can do to approach God's word.  Don't miss out on this opportunity to enter 2021 encouraged to encounter God through the Scriptures!

NOTE FROM FRITZ NELSON

Dear Church Family,

“Thy will be done on earth as is in Heaven.” I pray this each day and know that soon I will leave this earth. That is wonderful for me, but for my children and grandchildren I am disappointed at what they will experience as this earth seems to be going away from what God wants. I’ll continue praying with the hope there will be change for the better.                                                                                                                                                                         Your Brother in Christ,

Fritz
