  • sUNDAY aDULT eDUCATION


    Fall 2020 adult Classes begin on September 13th at 11:15am

    We are currently offering two adult classes via Zoom:

    First Samuel

    Standing between the erratic times of Israel being ruled by judges and Israel’s emergence as a strong and united kingdom is the rise of the prophet Samuel and Israel’s first king.  This book of the Old Testament can be divided by the three main characters:  Samuel, the one who represents God’s presence and word throughout Israel; Saul, the first king of Israel who struggles to follow Samuel’s advice at crucial times; and David, who is anointed Saul’s successor years before he actually becomes Israel’s second king in Second Samuel.  The political and military escapades abound throughout this book and remain within the rule and power of God’s covenantal and delivering hand. Join Rev. David Elton each Sunday as we read and discuss First Samuel, beginning Sunday, September 13 at 11:15am.
