O Come O Come Emmanuel
9:30am in the Fellowship Hall
During the month December Pastor Harvey will have a special Sunday School class in Fellowship Hall called “O Come, O Come Emmanuel.” Advent is a season of expectation in which we consider our need for a Redeemer. During this class we will study two texts: the treasured hymn “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel” and the Holy Spirit inspired Book of Job. Both of these texts will point us toward Christ in a powerful way as we move toward the culmination of our Advent Season. In the Book of Job our faith will be nourished to behold how God incarnate in Jesus Christ is the only comfort in the midst of personal suffering and longing for a better world. We will give special attention to the theology of “O Come, O Come, Emmanuel.” (You may be surprised at what you have not perceived!)
9:30am in the Library
Rev. Don Post will be leading a class for folks who have questions about the Christian Faith. This is wonderful place to invite friends and neighbors who are new to the church. No one will be asked to sing, pray or read out loud. (Sign Up)
We will be using a new series called Life Explored (developed by the publishers of Christianity Explored). Each class will feature a short, very engaging video presentation by Rico Tice, then move toward a discussion of how the gospel of Jesus Christ addresses some of the most profound questions that we all have about life.
Gospel of John
9:30am in Balcony Room 201
In John chapter 8, Jesus makes 3 iconic statements about Himself: “I am the light of the world” (v. 12); “You will know the truth, and the truth will set you free (v. 32); and “Before Abraham was, I AM” (v. 58).
Join Rev. Tim Coyle as he looks at the significance of these verses for Jesus and for us today as well, and then continues to work through the gospel of John, making many rich discoveries concerning the person of Christ and His work as we go.
English as a Second Language
9:30am in Balcony Room 202
ESL is offered throughout the year and led by U.Del International campus minister Rev. Rick Gray of RUFi (Reformed University Fellowship).
The course uses the bulletin and morning sermon text as a springboard for learning and practicing English. English speakers are encouraged to attend and serve our international
friends. Join us!
