If you have ever wondered who wrote the Bible and how did all the books get there and then tried to explain to someone why we believe the Bible is inerrant and inspired, you may want to consider attending a new Fortify class that begins on Wednesday, February 19th from 6 to 7 pm. “How We Got the Bible” will be led by Dr. J P Smith. This 6-week study will be a lecture/ discussion format that will be helpful those new to the church but also for those who want to deepen their faith. Email Mary Jo (firstname.lastname@example.org) if you are interested in participating in this call.
Spring Adult Fortify Classes - 6:30PM:

- What, in God’s Word, Is this World Coming To? A study of John’s Revelation and the “signs of the times.”
Rev 19:10 states, “The testimony of Jesus is the spirit of prophecy.” In Amos 3:7 we read “Surely the Sovereign Lord does nothing without revealing His plan to His servants the prophets.” Almost a third of the Bible is prophecy!! Prophecy has been given to us to prepare us, not scare us! So with a potential for a world-wide financial crisis and Arab nations threatening to wipe Israel off of the map (as foretold in Ps. 83) where is this world heading? What will be the result of dividing Israel’s land for peace,” Joel 3:20? Have you heard of the Isa. 17 prophecy about the destruction of Damascus, Syria? What is the “mark of the beast”? Where can we turn to gain a sense of security? What does lie ahead in God’s plan? Did you know that Jesus spoke of hell four times as often as He did heaven? What is the rapture? Why a tribulation? Did you know the Bible contains almost 3 times as many promises of Jesus’ second coming as of His first coming? Join us as we study these questions and more during our twelve week study of Revelation starting on Wednesday, 15 Jan. at 6:30pm or Thursday mornings, 16 Jan., at 10 AM. Please, call the Church Office (942-1491), sign up in the Foyer or email email@example.com. Cost will be $10 for the book, The Book of Revelation, the Smart Guide to the Bible series, by Methodist pastor Daymond Duck. Plan on bringing your Bible and a notebook, as many different resources will be offered for your own study and as the class time will be a verse by verse overview.
If you are planning to attend any of the above classes, please send Mary Jo (firstname.lastname@example.org) an email to let her know which class you would like and if you want to purchase a book for that particular class.
