Both of us are teaching through the Bible right now – Matt in Youth Group, and Rachel in Ladies’ Bible Study. Matt started 2 1/2 year ago, so will be covering the book of 1 Timothy this coming Tuesday night, and Rachel started only last month, so the Tuesday morning Ladies’ study is just at the book of Numbers!
The Bible is such a great book! There’s a time and a place for topical Bible studies using books that come alongside and help explain Scripture, but there’s nothing as rich and deep and true as Scripture itself.
We’re all loving this study, and more and more people are coming to hear the flow of redemptive history through the study of the Bible. The youth group has grown from a group of 6 guys to a living room packed with 22 guys and girls! The Ladies’ Bible study has grown too – if all the ladies come, we have 24!
Please pray for these two groups, that God’s Word would be living and active in them as they read and study the Bible. For many of them, this is the first time they’ve studied any part of the Bible, and for all of us, it’s a time to see God’s plans and His promises worked out over time and history. Pray for us – Matt and Rachel – too as we spend a good part of every week preparing to teach a whole book of the Bible on Tuesdays. And if you’re around, stop by for a visit!
Ladies’ Bible Study – at the Biedebach’s home, Tuesdays, 9am
