Bible 101

Facilitator: Mary Scheer
Location: Fellowship Hall

This class will run for nine weeks, ending on March 2nd

Is the Bible a book of mystery to you?

Have you been wanting to read the Bible on your own, but don’t have a good idea of where to start – at the beginning? In the New Testament?

Perhaps you have children in Sunday School who are asking you questions about Biblical characters or events that you cannot answer.

Bible 101 is an excellent class for you! Pastor Mary has put together an excellent overview class, which will teach you about such things as:

  • Foundations: How We Got Our Bible
  • Times & Places: Picturing the Events of the Bible
  • Cover to Cover: Getting the Bible’s Big Picture
  • Study Methods
  • Interpretation
  • Parables & Prophecy
  • Great Themes of the Bible
  • Personal Devotions
  • Putting it all together: (Review Discussion & Questions)

Romans – Seeing the World through God’s Eyes

Facilitators: Melanie Stone, Steve Chapman, Bob Smith, Dave Quinones
Location: Room 101 “Teen Room”

This class will continue the study of Romans begun in late November. It is not too late to join this study – new members are always welcome!

If you could look at the heart of humanity through the eyes of God, what would you see? Paul’s letter to the Romans offers just such a perspective. It is a piercing analysis of a fallen world and of God’s infinitely wise plan for its redemption. You will learn how your new identity in Christ frees you from sin to serve God gladly. And you will come to see the church, the world, and yourself in a new way – through God’s eyes. [Taken from back cover of the study guide on Romans, by Marshall Shelley.]

New Member Orientation

Pastor Doug Scalise
Sunday, March 2nd , 12:30 p.m. Fellowship Hall

There are many questions that are asked of Pastor Doug during the New Member Orientation. It is a time when all are welcome to come, listen, and ask anything about Brewster Baptist Church. It can be a way to learn more about the church before considering making a membership commitment. Or… it can be the beginning of a process for joining our church.
