“Gems from the Apostle Paul”  (PB’s Fall Sunday Adult Education Class )
Each Sunday we will tackle some key passages, “gems,” from the Epistles of Paul.  We’ll explore what the passage meant to its original recipients and what it means for us today.  We will also examine how the passage has shaped the church by looking at how some of the early church leaders and leaders of the Reformation viewed the text.  Plan now to make study of God’s word a priority this fall.  This class meets in the Fellowship Hall in between the services on Sunday mornings (9:45-10:45).
