One of the most common requests I have received since arriving at the First Congregational Church is to have an adult education class or Bible study group. After the holidays we will be offering a class called “What is the Bible?” which is a basic introduction to the Bible and how those who do not read the Bible literally should approach this holy text. We will talk about various versions and translations, about how the Bible was written, about biblical authority, tradition and experience and their importance in interpreting the scriptures. We will explore the various kinds of writings in the Bible, including creation stories, law, prophets, psalms, apocalyptic literature, gospels, and epistles!
If you are interested in participating in an adult education class please let Dawn know. We have not yet determined when this class will meet. The day of the week and time of day will depend upon the people who choose to attend and their schedules. Thanks for your interest!
