Parables in the Gospel of Matthew: Pastor/Scholar James Montgomery Boice said, “Some sections of the Bible give us grand theology. Some move us to grateful responses to God. But the parables break through mere words and make us ask whether there has indeed been any real difference in our lives. And isn’t this what we should expect, since the parables come from the lips of Jesus.” Come join us for a study of the parables in the Gospel of Matthew as we will explore what difference Jesus has made and should make in our lives. Taught by Clay Dabbs and Jamie Peterson
The Gospel…according to Elijah & Elisha: Decline of a nation; undoing of the good; abuse of power; idolatry in the land; forgetfulness of a people. This is what characterized Israel in the days of the Old Testament prophets Elijah and Elisha. And yet—the relentless pursuit of a loving God; awesome displays of His presence in their midst; mighty saving acts on behalf of His people. This is the other part of Israel’s story—and ours too. This fall come walk with Elijah and Elisha as they show us in surprising (and sometimes shocking) ways God’s presence and power—both to confront sinners and preserve His people. Taught by Melvin Manickavasagam and Steve Redding
