Adult Discipleship As we grow in our Christian walk, it becomes vital to continue to study God’s
word and how it applies to our everyday life. It is also imperative that we contemplate ways to
serve our community. As a member of the Adult Discipleship Team, you can help plan adult
education and service opportunities. This team is a wonderful opportunity to give voice to your
ideas for the direction and discipleship possibilities that you would like to see take shape in our
church. If you are interested in being a member of the team, please contact Anne Torgerson.
 You don’t have to be an expert or make a commitment to teach or lead.
All that is required is an interest in discipleship growth for our congregation.

Men's Bible Study

Monday's 5:00-6:00pm

Also available on Zoom: Contact Pastor Rich for the link

In this study, Simply Jesus, participants will be immersed in the 1st Century A.D. context of the life, work, teachings, and actions of Jesus of Nazareth.  The goal of the study is to look at the story of Jesus from the perspective of a historian. Too many times Jesus of Nazareth becomes interpreted as simply another 'religious figure' among many religious figures. But this so often eliminates the understanding of a man who lived in time and space at a critical time of history.
This study is meant for all audiences. No previous theological study is required or expected. In this way it is meant to give a basic understanding of Jesus as a figure in history primarily.
Prof. N.T. Wright will speak on key biblical texts to walk the student through the different elements that constitute the story of Jesus. In addition there you will have discussion questions to help you think more intently about the material presented.
This study tries to focus on essential biblical texts and non-biblical historical material to embrace the larger story of a Jesus of history. This study uses Prof. Wright's book, Simply Jesus.  In Simply Jesus, bestselling author and leading Bible scholar N.T. Wright summarizes 200 years of modern Biblical scholarship and models how Christians can best retell the story of Jesus today. In a style similar to C.S. Lewis’s popular works, Wright breaks down the barriers that prevent Christians from fully engaging with the story of Jesus.
