Adult Cornerstone

Class Title: Disciple Bible Study – Genesis
Led by Rev. Lynda Dinsdale
September 7 – October 26, 2016
Wednesday evenings 6:30 – 8:00 P.M.

This fall the Disciple Bible Study returns with Disciple 2 “Into the Word into the World.” This study draws upon the work of scholars, personal Bible reading and study of participant, and group discussions to aid our understanding of the Bible.

This year we will study two books of the Bible in two 8-week segments with Genesis this fall and the Gospel of Luke in the spring.

If you are searching for a Bible Study which offers a deeper examination of God’s word while discovering how scripture speaks to you today in your experiences of life as opportunities for faithful witness and service, then join us on Wednesday evenings during Cornerstone from 6:30 -8:00 PM in Room 13.  The cost of the study manual is $20.00 donation.

We look forward to journeying together into God’s word.

*This class will not require the prerequisite of completing a Disciple 1 class.

 

The Gospel According to Dr. Seuss by James W. Kemp
Led by Amanda Stalnaker
September 7 – October 26, 2016
Wednesday evenings 6:30 – 7:30 P.M.

The stories of Dr. Seuss are both imaginative and entertaining, but a closer look at his stories reveals that they are inspirational as well as instructive.  James W. Kemp, a retired United Methodist pastor, put together this collection of devotions to reveal the parts of God’s message hidden in the colorful pages of Dr. Seuss.

The themes in Dr. Seuss stories help us to understand what is truly important in life.  His messages cause us to think about the scriptures and ourselves, in new ways.  We’ll explore parallel themes found in Dr. Seuss books and the Bible, including faithfulness, fairness, friendship, greed, pride, hope, adventure, and much more, while discussing questions such as, “What people in our lives remind us of Horton the Elephant, whose faith cannot be shaken?” and “In what ways are we like the Grinch who stole Christmas?”  This study will be a fresh and fun approach for people of all ages to get to the heart of the simple Gospel message of Jesus Christ through one of the world’s most beloved children’s authors.
