Summer Classes

Hard Sayings of the Apostle Paul II

Fellowship Hall West

George McFarland (facilitator), Merle Brubaker, Mickael Carr, Michel Hatem

In reading the Apostle Paul, you have no doubt come across a puzzling phrase or verse. This summer again we plan to look at selected texts that have been considered “problems”.  For instance, what does Paul mean when he talks about being “faultless before the law,” or “the man of lawlessness,” or “Cretans are always liars.” Come prepared to think through and discuss with us the context of these statements along with suggested interpretations.

Redemption Accomplished & Applied

1710 Spruce Street, 1 Rear (large conference room)

Ron DiGiacomo (facilitator), Paul Duggan, Richard Homer

This class looks at the two-sided nature of redemption, that is, redemption accomplished by Christ and this same redemption applied to the redeemed. Both of these are the work of God and get to the heart of the gospel of Jesus Christ. This little classic by John Murray is a goldmine of biblical truth that will nourish the soul and cause one to rebound with gratitude and praise.
