10-week Intensive Study begins Wednesday, September 15th
On ten Wednesday evenings, from 7 to 8:30 p.m., we will be studying the book of Psalms in the Meeting Room. All are invited to join in this comprehensive study of some of the most beautiful texts in scripture. The human emotions expressed in the Book of Psalms rise to peaks of joy and descend into valleys of despair. In the Psalms, the promise of the reign of God meets the historical experience of God’s people. Faith in God’s faithfulness collides with human experiences of pain and suffering, enslavement, oppression, and exile. God’s people — given voice in the Psalms – struggle to make sense of who God is and who they are, and in so doing they have composed a collection of moving testimonies of grace, glory, sorrow, and beauty unmatched in sacred literature. For students of the Psalms today, this study offers greater understanding of how these ancient texts of praise, lament, worship, and prayer can still speak to us and for us.
A signup sheet will be available on Sunday mornings and you may also call the church office to reserve a student book. A donation of $10 is invited to help cover the cost of study materials. Childcare will be provided.
