Covenant:
Covenant is a video based Bible study consisting of three 8-week segments emphasizing the biblical concept of covenant—the enduring commitment between God and people.  The three segments examine CREATING the covenant community, LIVING the covenant in our interpersonal relationships, and TRUSTING in the covenant in times of trouble in our lives.  This 24-week bible study will deepen your understanding and love of scripture, build relationships for strong community, and develop leaders in the church. This Bible study course replaces, at least temporarily, the Disciple series that we have used previously.  Covenant is a slightly shorter time commitment than any of the Disciple series was.  It is possible, although not necessarily recommended, that Covenant can be taken in independent 8-week segments rather than sequentially at one time.
Faith in the 21st Century
Comparative Religion will be the topic for Faith in the 21st Century. The video presenter is Prof. Charles Kimball from the University of Oklahoma.  We will concentrate on five of the major world religions, and will have discussion following the video. We will meet on six Mondays, beginning October 2nd, from 10:00 – 11:30 a.m. in Room 203 at the Downtown Church.
