Bible Correspondence Courses (see below for onsite Winter classes)

For those who wish to study the Bible at home, we will provide upon request the following Bible correspondence courses. The Hawley lessons are available by email correspondence. Contact office@silverspringcofc.org.

Bible Course
John Hurt

This series of eight lessons presents an overview of the Bible for the beginning Bible student. Lesson topics include: The Old Testament, The New Testament, Rightly Dividing the Word, Faith & Works, Becoming a Christian, Acceptable Worship, The New Testament Church, and You Can Be Just a Christian.

Studies Through the Bible (A Proven Basic Course)
Monroe E. Hawley

This is a thirty lesson course surveying the entire Bible from Genesis to Revelation. This series is simple enough to be studied by one with little Bible knowledge, yet comprehensive enough to help the Bible student.

Jesus, by John (His Gospel for Belief)
Wayne Hawley

These ten lessons on the gospel of John are of tremendous value for both the non-Christian investigating Jesus and the disciple taking a fresh look at the Savior. Jesus, by John follows the text of the gospel, showing it to be an eye-witness account of Jesus designed to produce faith. The lessons are understandable enough for the beginner and challenging enough for classes.

Into All the World (A Study of the Book of Acts)
Monroe Hawley

A ten lesson study of the book of Acts of the Apostles. Each lesson requires reading of the Bible in addition to the lesson material.

Foundations of Faith (An Advanced Course)
Monroe Hawley

This thirty lesson study is designed for the student with some previous Bible knowledge. Topics include: There is a God, The Inspiration of the Bible, Why the Bible is God’s Word, Fulfilled Prophecy, Miracles of the Bible, the Nature of Sin, The Resurrection of the Dead.

Christian Way (For the New Christian)
Monroe Hawley

Many Christians never develop spiritually because they have not been taught how to live the Christian life. This ten lesson course presents Christianity as a way of life, not just a catalog of duties. Each lesson is tied to this concept so that the student will gain a broader appreciation of the depth and meaning of his faith.

Through the Bible (Junior Correspondence Course)
Karen Conley

These eight lessons for junior high school age students deals with New Testament subjects such as: The Birth, Boyhood, and Baptism of Jesus; His Teachings and Miracles; His Death, Resurrection, and Ascension; the Beginning of the Church; the Plan of Salvation; Worship; the Christian Life and the Christian Home.

Winter Classes: Sundays
(November 30 - February 22)

Character Studies from the Old Testament (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Auditorium
THE OLD TESTAMENT IS TO BE READ AND STUDIED, JUST AS PAUL WROTE: “FOR EVERYTHING THAT WAS WRITTEN IN THE PAST WAS WRITTEN TO TEACH US, SO THAT THROUGH ENDURANCE AND THE ENCOURAGEMENT OF THE SCRIPTURES WE MIGHT HAVE HOPE” (ROMANS 15:4). GOD HAS PRESERVED IN SCRIPTURE A WEALTH OF EXAMPLES OF HOW SOME PEOPLED LIVED, SO THAT WE CAN LEARN HOW TO LIVE PLEASING TO HIM. THE PURPOSE OF THIS CLASS IS TO TRY TO UNDERSTAND IMPORTANT TRUTHS ABOUT THIRTEEN DIFFERENT OLD TESTAMENT CHARACTERS (FROM MIRIAM THROUGH DANIEL) AND APPLY SOME OF WHAT CAN BE LEARNED FROM THEM TO OUR PRESENT-DAY CHRISTIAN LIFE. STUDENTS WILL EXAMINE THIRTEEN DIFFERENT OT BIBLICAL CHARACTERS AND APPLY SOME OF THEIR GODLY QUALITIES TO CONTEMPORARY CHRISTIAN LIFE.


God, Pass By Me: Seeing God Through His Names, Titles, and Description (Ladies Only)
 Isabelle C. Williamson
11:15 A.M.
Room 101
THIS LADIES ONLY CLASS WILL STUDY THE NAMES AND TITLES OF GOD AND FOCUS ON HIS NATURE AND CHARACTER. STUDENTS WILL UNDERSTAND THE POWER OF GOD IN THEIR LIVES AND THE INTIMATE RELATIONSHIP THAT RESULTS FROM LEARNING THE DIMENSIONS OF GOD’S NATURE THAT HE REVEALS THROUGH HIS WORD. (THIS CLASS WILL SPAN TWO QUARTERS.)


Wisdom (All Adults)
Randolph V. Lipscomb
11:15 A.M.
Room 115
THE INTENT OF THIS STUDY IS TO EXAMINE WISDOM WITH REGARDS TO GOD’S WISDOM VERSUS MAN’S WISDOM. THE APPROACH WILL BE TO LOOK AT KNOWLEDGE, UNDERSTANDING AND WISDOM AS MEANS BY WHICH WE PERCEIVE THE WORLD AND EVENTS IN OUR LIVES. THE STUDY WILL USE PROVERBS AS THE BASE OF SCRIPTURE, BUT IS NOT INTENDED TO BE PURELY A STUDY OF PROVERBS. A KEY NT PASSAGE TO CONSIDER WILL BE COLOSSIANS 2:2-4. SCRIPTURE WILL ALSO BE USED THAT POINTS OUT HOW FOLLY OR FOOLISHNESS CAN CLOUD OUR JUDGMENT.

Galatians: Freedom in Christ (All Adults)
Floyd M. Williamson
7:30 P.M.
Auditorium
PAUL’S LETTER TO THE GALATIANS IS ONE OF THE MOST READ AND LIKED BOOKS OF THE BIBLE. IT HAS BEEN CALLED THE “MAGNA CARTA OF CHRISTIAN LIBERTY.” PAUL DOES STRESS THAT SALVATION IS BY GOD’S GRACE THROUGH FAITH, BUT THERE IS ALSO MUCH ABOUT THE DAILY CHRISTIAN WALK. PAUL’S LETTER IS JUST AS RELEVANT TODAY AS IT WAS TO THE FIRST READERS LIVING IN GALATIA. THE LETTER HELPS DEFINE WHAT IT IS TO BE A FAITHFUL CHRISTIAN. THE
PURPOSE OF THE CLASS IS TO ENCOURAGE STUDENTS TO APPRECIATE GOD’S GRACE IN OUR LIVES SO MUCH THAT WE WILL NOT ONLY TREAT OTHERS GRACIOUSLY, BUT WE WILL ALSO BE MOTIVATED TO BE MORE FAITHFUL AND OBEDIENT TO THE LORD.

Joseph Hamilton
