Judges/Ruth: 8 Lessons - Commentary by Nancy J. Collins, study questions by Kathy Rowland. Class will meet in room 204 beginning August 29, 9:30am and ending November 7. Cost is $15.
In Judges we see a continuing cycle of God’s blessing, Israel’s rebellion, God’s disciplining, their repentance, and God’s deliverance and blessing again. In the stories of people such as Deborah, Gideon and Samson, we see God’s faithfulness, His patience and His grace.
From Ruth we see that participation in God’s kingdom is not decided by blood, but by obedience that comes from faith. A beautiful story of love and grace, the story of Ruth reminds us that no matter how evil the time, God has His people; no matter how hopeless a situation may seem, God is greater. No matter what—God’s plan and purpose will be accomplished.
James: Faith/Works by Matt Chandler. Class will meet in room 222 beginning August 27, 6:30pm. Cost is $15.
Understand that works don’t save us, rather good works follow true faith as our beliefs and actions line up with each other.
James had a unique earthly relationship with Jesus, but his letter clarifies what the Christian life should look like for us all. The Book of James is filled with practical wisdom for Christians, calling us to live out genuine faith through good works, but it is also rooted in rich theology. Perhaps more than any other book in the New Testament, James emphasizes the application of Christian belief.
This 13-session study examines the core message of James: the relationship between faith and works. In our own ability, we cannot stand in the face of adversity. Without faith we could never find the strength to trust God. We would never be able to see above the trials we meet and to keep our eyes focused on the King while counting our trials as joy. This is the essence of James. We don’t work to be saved; we work because we are saved. Faith apart from works can never be sustained.
