Summer Sunday School

All Sunday School Classes will be Combined in the Sanctuary

Guest Speakers for Summer 2019

Explore the Bible: During the first 6-weeks of the summer, we will be working through a Joshua Bible Study Book that will encourage you and your group members to trust in God and have faith in His promises.

The Book of Joshua illustrates the fact that the Lord gives rest to His people. After the Hebrew people had suffered for four hundred years as slaves in Egypt, God gave them victories in the promised land. But each victory required a step of faith. God’s provision for the people bore witness to later generations of His divinely willed leadership for Israel, and His gracious gift of the promised land demonstrated that the people’s faithful obedience to the covenant could result in abundant blessing.

The next 6-weeks will work through an Esther Group Bible Study Book that tells the story of Esther, a woman who was used of God to stand against unholy people to preserve the Jewish people and their culture and tradition. 

Esther, who was a Jew, was also the queen of Persian King Ahasuerus. She used her influence at just the right time to save her people from annihilation when evil Haman sought to destroy the Jews of the land. Without the heroic acts of Esther, the Jewish nation and their religion may have ceased to exist.
