Join us Sundays at 9:15 for Sunday School for all ages. We start with refreshments and fellowship. Adult class meets in the Fellowship Hall. Please join Pastor Crenshaw as he begins a new study called: Gospel-Centered Worship: A Discussion on Ancient Theology and Modern Practice.
Children's classes for preschool through grade school meet in our Sunday School wing. Our experienced and loving teachers will help your children understand and read Bible stories appropriate for their age. Hope to see you there!
A study on dusty, old, curmudgeonly Calvin! Why? Here I could provide you many examples and quotes from scholars and theologians who argue that John Calvin's Institutes of the Christian Religion hold a place as one of the literary masterpieces in the history of the world. Or, I might cite J.I. Packer's reference to the Institutes as "one of the wonders of the spiritual world." But instead, I will share the words of my mentor and very dear friend, Dr. David Calhoun:
"I do not idolize Calvin, but my respect for him as a teacher and pastor has grown through the years. Facing the daily task of living, with many demands and pressures, struggling with incurable cancer, and trying to find a way to understand the chaos and grimness of world events unfolding around me, I have found Calvin a source of solidity and strength."
He goes on. I will not. That is enough of a reason to see what the Institutes are all about! Starts Sunday, September 24 at 6 pm and every other Sunday thereafter for study, fellowship and food!
