Winter 2018 Adult Bible
Ephesians: Oneness in the Lord's Church
Floyd Williamson--Auditorium, All Adults
Paul’s letter to the church in Ephesus is similar to his letter to the church in Colossae, but is different in tone. In Ephesians, Paul does not appear to deal directly with any controversies, but simply and boldly lays out God’s plan for the churches of Christ for all generations that follow. The first three chapters focus on God’splan, His grace, and Christ as the head of His church. The last three chapters deal with the duties of those in His church. The message of Ephesians could be summarized: God has given salvation and His people live it. This study will help each of us more clearly understand God’s gracious plan for salvation in the Lord’s church and how we should live faithfully and obediently.
Journey through the Psalms (Part 4)
Isabelle Williamson--Room 101, Ladies only
“God wants you to know Him. The Psalms are a window that looks deeply into His heart—a place where He reveals His purpose for your life. Journey through the Psalms—songs of praise, adoration, deliverance, and redemption…” Students will “Learn how to reflect the glory of God through a more intimate and fulfilling walk with Him”, through an intensive study of the book of Psalms. A study guide will be provided for each student.
The Book of Leviticus 1 - 27
Jonathan Walker, Sr. --Room 115, All Adults
Students will study God’s call to Israel, the special relationship to bless the nation of Israel, and demonstrate that the church today has the same task to be holy people as well as a nation of priest to the world.
La vida en Cristo. (The life in Christ.)
Elmer Pacheco--Salon 108
Aprenderemos a vivir de acuerdo a nuestra realidad espiritual en Cristo. (We will learn to live according to our spiritual reality in Christ). Scripture: Ephesians

The Fruit of the Spirit (Galatians 5:22-26)
Floyd Williamson--Auditorium, All Adults
One of God’s promises to all Christians is that when we are baptized into Christ, we also receive the gift of the Holy Spirit (Acts 2:38). The Holy Spirit, along with our own faithfulness to the Lord, produces a spiritual fruit in our lives. In Galatians 5:22-26, Paul gives a list of nine qualities that describe this “fruit of the Spirit.” The purpose of the class is to examine the qualities of “fruit of the Spirit” and how they are manifested in our lives. The first couple of weeks we will study its contrast, “the acts of the flesh” (Galatians 5:19-21).
The Church We Love (A Study of Acts)
Omar Eaton-Martinez--Room 101, All Adults
For the following quarter we will examine the valuable history of the New Testament church. This history records the establishment and incredible growth of our Lord's church. This course will thoroughly investigate the text in order to make application in our Christian lives so that we can deepen our connection with our Lord and Savior and the church He died for.
La verdad del evangelio. (The truth of the gospel.)
Elmer Pacheco--Salon 108
A diferencia de los judaizasteis, aprenderemos a confiar en la gracia de Dios. (Unlike the Judaizers, we will learn to trust in the grace of God.) Scripture: Galatians.
