Jesus said that students are not greater than their teacher. But the student who is fully trained will become like the teacher (Luke 6:40). As His disciples, we want to grow in every way more and more like Christ (Ephesians 4:15). Finding our identity in Him (2 Corinthians 5:14-17). And learning to love as He first loved us (1 John 4:19). According to Jesus it’s by this love that others will know we are His disciples (John 13:35). It’s therefore not a surprise that His love motivates us to provide multiple ways in which people of all ages learn what it means to follow Jesus. For where Baptism begins this new life by the power of the Holy Spirit at work in the lives of infants and adults, it’s through the study of God’s Word that we learn to love Him along with the people He has placed in our life (2 Timothy 3:14-17). It’s why we are committed to providing Christian education as a means by which His disciples can live and grow and mature.

Thursday Evening Adult Study: The Truth Project

This is an invitation to participate in a very unique Bible study this summer entitled The Truth Project. Many of you are familiar with this study by Focus on the Family and have taken it previously. However in talking with several of the people who have taken it, the common theme seems to be that there is so much to learn and absorb, that it would be worthwhile to take it again.

If you haven’t done this study, you are in for a real treat. It is a course that defines moral values from a Biblical perspective It challenges us to think about the way we live our lives based on Biblical truths.

The Truth Project study begins by stating that today's believers live very similarly to non-believers. A personal sense of significance is rarely experienced, we spend our money and time on things that fail to satisfy and we begin to wonder what life's ultimate purpose really is. We are, in short, losing our bearings as a people and a nation.

Each topic is presented via DVD followed by a group discussion led by Byron and Sheryl Hansen. View a summary of each topic by clicking on the Truth Project post on our website home page.

This study meets Thursdays in the Friendship Hall from 6:30 to 8:30PM.
