STARTING SEPTEMBER 29TH
Join us this fall and spring for an in-depth study in the Book of Romans. Many would agree with Philip Schaff, in his History the Christian Church, that Romans is their favorite portion of scripture, because "It is the most remarkable production of the most remarkable man. It is his heart. It contains his theology, theoretical and practical, for which he lived and died. It gives the clearest and fullest exposition of the doctrines of sin and grace and the best possible solution of the universal dominion of sin and death in the universal redemption by the second Adam [Jesus]."
Martin Luther said of this book: "This Epistle is really the chief part of the New Testament and the very purest Gospel, it is worthy not only that every Christian should know it word for word, by heart, but occupy himself with it everyday, as the daily bread of the soul. It can never be read or pondered too much, and the more it is dealt with the more precious it becomes, and the better it tastes."
Our prayer is that as we look into the beauty and grandeur of Romans, our lives will be transformed by the truths contained there in. On September 29th we will begin a 23-week bible study of all 16 chapters of Romans. We meet at 7:00 PM in the Metropolis Building for worship and a short teaching before we break into small groups for discussion and encouragement. If you are hungry, come early, dinner is served promptly at 6:30 PM. We hope to see you there.
