(Coed Class) Back to the Bible - Part 2 / Why We Trust the Bible & Knowing Scripture

6:00pm - 7:30pm | 2154 Loop 337 New Braunfels TX 78130

Why We Trust the Bible God Has Spoken God's revelation: where would we be without it? In this series, Dr. Stephen Nichols explains that we would be lost if not for God's Word, trapped in the darkness of sin forever. Rather than forsake us, God sent His Son, Jesus, revealing and recording His redemptive purposes in an inspired, inerrant, and authoritative source: the Bible. Sufficient for all of life, a crucial question arises: will we accept its authority? 6 weeks

Knowing Scripture shows us that it is the privilege and duty of every believer to diligently study God's Word. It reminds us that along with this privilege comes the responsibility to interpret the Bible correctly. Dr. R.C. Sproul teaches that interpreting Scripture, like all sciences, is governed by rules. He lays out the basic guidelines for correctly understanding, interpreting, and applying Scripture, using time-tested principles from Scripture to show how to find the true meaning of its contents. This series is a great study tool for both beginning and long-time Bible readers. 12 weeks

Cost: $10 per person.
Start Date: 1/15/20 - 5/13/20.

(Women’s Class) Surrendering the Secret, Healing the Heartbreak of Abortion

12:00am - 12:00am

by Pat Layton Surrendering the Secret provides a personal class experience helping women find the path to healing through honest, interactive Bible study; meaningful group experiences; unique journaling exercises; and confidential, caring community. Many women hide the secret of abortion deep in their hearts. They carry a great burden of shame and failure, afraid to reveal their hidden pain, and by doing so are forced to endure the long-lasting effects of abortion in isolation. The Surrendering the Secret Bible Study is a trust journey through the Word of God where women are allowed to release this burden and find freedom. While experiencing hope and joy, shame and failure are replaced with beauty and freedom. Please visit www.surrenderingthesecret.com to see what God is doing through this ministry across the nation.

(Coed Class) Bible Literacy Workshop

Wednesday, 6:15pm - 7:30pm | 2154 Loop 337 New Braunfels TX 78130

Do you lack desire to study the Bible? Do you struggle to locate different books of the Bible? Do you question whether the Bible is complete? Do you wonder if Old Testament laws still apply to us today? Do you realize that the book of Psalms shows us how to express our emotions to God? Do you know the original audience of each Old Testament prophet? Do you know that the New Testament addresses cultural issues that are still relevant today? If questions like these inhibit your study of God’s Word join us for a Bible Literacy Workshop. Rather than studying a particular topic or passage of Scripture we will spend our time exploring the mechanics of God’s Word. Learn how to become a student of the Bible rather than just a reader of the Bible so that you may grow closer to God through His Word. 

Facilitator: Jenny Hander Length 8 weeks.
