Faith Development Class

ADULT
Interested in studying the Bible but don't know where to start or worried you just won't
understand?

Morningside's own Jennye Guy will lead a two-week class to help us take the first step.

With the help of reference works and study methods, we can read and study the Bible and uncover many of its layers of meaning for ourselves. This class is a brief introduction to Bible study that will, hopefully, whet attendees' appetites for studying and exploring the Bible on their own.

Using the book of 1 John as a teaching example, an overview of one system of study--The Inductive Method--will be presented.  This class will meet at 9:45 a.m. in Room 201.
