In our men‘s class, we’re studying systematic theology.  (It’s not as boring as it sounds).  This week we’re talking about Salvation.  

The greatest enemy to human souls is the self-righteous spirit which makes men look to themselves for salvation.

As soon as a man has found Christ, he begins to find others.
Charles Spurgeon


Based on Ephesians 1-2 and Colossians 1-2, at the moment of salvation:
1. I am justified (declared right) with God by God on behalf of Jesus.
2. I am made a child of God.
3. I have access to God.
4. I am reconciled to God.
5. I am forgiven.
6. I am placed “ in Christ.”

During the first 1/2 of 2017, we're working our way through a character study each week, starting with "A is for Adam".

Here are the "Super Hero Cards" from each week.

Hey!  VBS is coming in JUNE!

Dates:  June 11-15 (Sunday to Thursday)
Times: 6:00 - 8:00 pm

The men's class is going through 26 character studies featuring a person from the Bible who's name starts with that week's letter of the alphabet.

Our first week was Adam!

Well, we did it!  This lesson covers the book of Revelation - the last of the "chronological" books in the Bible.

The book of Acts covers the time from the resurrection to around 65 AD.

The thirteenth book in the chronology of the Bible is actually a collection of books.  We combined the gospels to give us a clear look at the life of Christ and the first 33 years of the 1st century.

Nehemiah is the last Old Testament book in the chronology of the Bible.  It chronicles the re-building of the walls around Jerusalem in about 445BC

Ezra is the 11th chronological book in the Bible.  It documents the re-building of the temple under Zerrubabbel and the return from captivity under Ezra.
