Covenant Bible Study - Second Session

Sunday, January 8, 2017 to Sunday, February 26, 2017

Class Time: 

5:00 PM - 7:00 PM

Class Location:

Have you been yearning for a deep Bible study which connects the ancient Word to our contemporary lives? If so, then Covenant is the formational group for you! Join Pastor Jennifer for a 24-week, conversation-based survey of the Bible as we discover what it means to be a covenant community.

Our study is divided into three 8-week segments and the second segment of the class will begin on Sunday, January 8, 2017.

Participant guides are $50 (this is for a total of 3 guides - one for each segment). If you are someone who prefers online reading, there is a Covenant app which can be downloaded. Within the app you can purchase each guide for $10 each. The guides (in book form) ended up being a little pricier than I originally thought. If the price for these guides is a hardship for you in any way, please see me. I do not want financial concerns to be a barrier for you to participate in this study. I will make sure we can work something out!

If you have a study Bible, plan on bringing it on Sunday. If not, don’t stress about it. We’re just going to take a look at some of the features of our Bibles.

We will be meeting in Wagoner Hursch at 5pm. You are welcome to bring your dinner with you to eat during the study (since it’s during the traditional dinner hour).

Feel free to poke around the Covenant Bible study website to learn more http://www.covenantbiblestudy.com/

If you have any friends you think might be interested in the study, please invite them to join us! There are a few more spots available. They don’t need to be affiliated with Church of the Master; they could be a neighbor, friend, co-worker, or family member!
