“Now faith is the assurance of things hoped for, the conviction of things not seen.” Hebrews 11:1
Fairhaven’s Adult Sunday School led by Geoff Kaiser begins at 9:00am in the Garden Room: "Making Sense of the Bible - Rediscovering the Power of Scripture Today," by Adam Hamilton. This study will address inconsistencies in the Bible and problematic passages in which the Bible either teaches of accepts behavior that we consider immoral today (e.g., slavery, the subordination of women, concubinage, genocide, and the death penalty for crimes we would never deem worthy of death today). The study ends with the conclusion that the Bible is indeed inspired by God, although it was written down by fallible human beings who struggled to make sense of the message that they were receiving, and whose thoughts were influenced by their culture and their understanding of the world in which they lived. All are welcome.
Fairhaven’s Adult Bible Study is held every Tuesday morning at 10:15 a.m. Rev. Ken leads a discussion on the Scriptures, along with the history and traditions of Christianity and The United Methodist Church, frequently aided by video presentations with noted scholars and pastors. During the first half of 2020, our study will be consisted of three six-week studies on United Methodist theology and application.
Part 1: Who Are We as a People of God?
Part 2: Who Are We as the People Called Methodists?
Part 3: Who Are We as the People of the Baltimore-Washington Conference?
The leaders of the Baltimore Washington Conference has put together this study based on scripture and the denominational interpretation and application of biblical truth for today's society. Visitors are always welcome.
