from Pastor Dave
One of the most meaningful experiences I had here at Lincoln Park while serving as the associate pastor, 1989-1995, was going through the 34 week Disciple Bible Study with twelve other members of our church. Yes! It was a big commitment, but one of the most rewarding experiences in my life. Some of those who went through the same Disciple Study have said the same!
For some time, I have been looking for a similar opportunity (not as long) to offer and I think I’ve found it! Covenant is a 24-WEEK, IN-DEPTH GROUP BIBLE STUDY in which people read and discuss the Bible together. It differs from other Bible studies in that it emphasizes the biblical concept of covenant as a unifying pattern throughout the entire Bible underscoring the unique relationship that God chooses with us as his people.
Over three eight-week modules, we will read both the Old and New Testament as they relate to three different aspects of what covenant means: CREATING, LIVING AND TRUSTING. This program has been developed for a small group of no more than twelve people. We will meet on Thursday nights, from 6:30-8 pm, in the Library in the Perkins Education Center. The first module will begin on October 6th. I recognize committing 24 weeks to read through the Bible and meet weekly is a commitment. It is not for the faint of heart. But most things in life that are worthwhile require dedication. Let me know if you are interested.
