A free community Bible study for equipping God’s people with His resources so that you might “go” and make disciples wherever God has planted you. Onsite and online. From September 15 – November 10, the topic will be “This is My Story, This is My Song: Insights From Exodus” with Dr. Reed Lessing, Professor of Theology and Ministry, Concordia University, St. Paul, MN.

Perhaps no story in all of scripture is more familiar than the Christmas story of Luke 2.  With such familiarity, it’s easy for even the most seasoned of Biblical students to make assumptions about the text based on what they think they know.  It’s easy for one to “read into” the text, rather than to read the text. 

In the class “Clear View of the Birth of Jesus” we will join Middle Eastern scholar Kenneth Bailey for four video lectures followed by Bible study and discussion.  We will take a fresh look at the text, attempting to strip away “additions” that have crept in over the centuries, recapturing the beauty and simplicity of the birth of Christ.

Join us on Sunday mornings, November 27 through December 18, onsite in Rooms 209 – 211 as Pastor Wheeler and Phil Johnson lead the discussion.  Questions?  Contact Phil Johnson (  Click here to register.
