Bible Study Fellowship: Acts and the Letters of the Apostles

Join the BSF ExxonMobil Satellite this fall to study Acts and the Letters of the Apostles. Satellite classes will meet from 11:30 am – 12:30 pm on Tuesdays.

The next study in Bible Study Fellowship, starting in the Fall of 2019, will be Acts and Letters of the Apostles.  In order of appearance: Acts, 1 Peter, Hebrews, 1 & 2 Thessalonians, 1 Corinthians and James. If you’ve been in BSF awhile, you may notice the lineup is different than previous years of this study. The revised study provides a 30-week format and allows us to spend more time in other portions of the study. (For example, we’ll spend four weeks exploring 1 Corinthians, rather than two, as we have before.) To accommodate this, we have trimmed some epistles from the study – 2 Corinthians, Ephesians, 2 Peter and Jude. We would like to reconstitute these and other BSF materials to create several shorter, off-season studies in the future.  See the following video for encouragement to attend!

1 Corinthians Study

Corinth

The ancient Greek city of Corinth was destroyed by the Romans in 146 BC.  It was rebuilt about 100 years later as a commercial complex and center for cult activity.  The Apostle Paul visited there on his second missionary journey, planting a church with the help of Aquila and Pricilla.  Many of the converts came from cultic backgrounds, leading to conflicting beliefs and practices.

Paul’s letters to the church in Corinth sought to address many of these issues, some of which are prevalent in today’s society, with the goal of producing a healthy church.  Our study of 1 Corinthians will seek to unlock these Biblical truths and identify applications for today.

We plan to meet on Thursdays at 11:30 am.  Contact Stuart Holland for additional information.

Catholic Faith Study (CFS): The Eucharist or the Lord’s Supper

Dear Friends,

The Catholic Faith Study (CFS) is beginning a 3-part series on the Eucharist, or the Lord’s Supper, as it is sometimes called. We will be studying the origins and the meaning of the Last Supper within the context of the Old Testament (OT) scriptures.

We will be studying how the “types” in the OT pointed to the reality in the New Testament. Types such as the Jewish Passover, the manna from heaven given to the Israelites in the desert and the “Bread of the Presence” (show bread) in the Temple. Join us on Thursdays beginning October 11th, then October 18thand 25th at 11:30PM.  Skype connections are available to listen remotely, if you wish.

Contact Henry Avila (henry.j.avila@exxonmobil.com) to be added to our CFS distribution list or to be invited to this series only.

Audio recording of each session will be available soon after the class is held. Come back and check this CFS web page to find a link to the audio recordings if you wish to listen to the class.

People of all faiths are welcome!
