Lenten Video Bible Study
Pastor Dale Reese will be leading a six-week Bible Study called The Prodigal God based on curriculum developed by Rev. Timothy Keller. Timothy Keller is a powerful teacher of the word of God serving a church in New York City. Keller developed the study and book using the character traits seen in the Prodigal Son story of Jesus. Keller is an excellent writer and his illustrations help the reader grasp what was going on during the culture when Jesus was walking on this earth. Pastor Dale will use a short introduction video clip developed by Timothy Keller, then we will discuss such notes about the Father (who represents God that is abundant in showing grace and love), the young brother (who runs away and is spiritually empty), and finally the older brother (morally upright). The study will be Thursday evenings at 7:00pm, beginning on February 15th, and Sundays at 11:45am beginning on February 18th.
