The Bible: How the Bible Came to Be (Series 1 – 4 sessions) We will be covering the history of how the Christian Scriptures were composed and how the various books of the Bible finally came to be as we have them today. We will discuss the various Greek manuscripts and how they were preserved in the centuries prior to the invention of the printing press in the 15th century. In addition, we will touch upon how to interpret the Bible by understanding the various “senses” of scripture. We will also begin discussion on how it uses “typology” to convey the story of salvation history. This will lead us into the 2nd series on Salvation History – A Journey through the Old Testament. People of all faiths are welcome to attend.

Do you feel weighted down with worry? Does the uncertainty and chaos of life keep you up at night? Are irrational fears your constant companion? Could you use some calm?
This video based study by bestselling author Max Lucado explores God’s treatment plan for anxiety found in Philippians 4:4-8. As you follow the prescription – celebrating God’s goodness, asking for his help, leaving your concerns with him, and meditation on good things – you will experience God’s peace. This is a peace that “transcends all understanding” and will help you reframe the way you look at your fears.
While anxiety is a part of life, it doesn’t have to dominate your life. With God as your helper and his promises at your side, you can sleep better tonight and smile more tomorrow. You can talk yourself off the ledge and view bad news through the lens of God’s sovereignty. You can discover a life of calm and develop tools for combating the onslaught of anxiety.
You will need to purchase the study guide “Anxious for Nothing” which can be found at most book retailers, including Amazon. There is a book, as well, although it is not a necessary requirement for this bible study series, but makes a nice accompaniment.
