starting again on 1st, 3rd and 4th October 2018
We value reading and learning from the Bible since it is the foundation of our faith. Its teaching never goes out of date because God and people have not changed. In the Old Testament we read of how God made the world and tried to establish a relationship with us, which we kept breaking until we were almost completely out of touch with him. The prophets looked forward to a time when God would do something new to bring us back to God. This special agent or Messiah would be identified with God Himself.
In the New Testament we read of the coming to earth of this rescuer, Jesus. We read of his life, his teachings and miracles, his death and resurrection, God who became a man. We read then of what his disciples did in spreading the message about Jesus as rescuer. Paul and others write letters to encourage the early Christians in their relationships with the risen Jesus and with one another.
Our home groups last an hour and include prayers at the end. Sometimes the sessions are grouped by theme and sometimes we study a book. The emphasis is not on academic study but on finding out what the Bible is saying to us about how we should run our personal and church lives.
House Groups meet again at the start of October on the theme of ‘How to make sense of the Old Testament’. Each week we will look at a different book and see how it reveals its message as we go along. Same venues and times as usual:
Monday 10am 10 Trythogga Rd, Gulval
Wed 7pm – 7 Reens Rd, Heamoor
Thurs 2pm – The Vicarage, Madron
Join in any time. It’s free, of course
