Following the Fourth Night Dinner
Fourth Night is our Wednesday night program that brings the whole church body together to deepen our fellowship and grow in our faith. The evening begins with a meal, followed by prayer and a choice of classes, activities and volunteer opportunities for all ages.
The Covenants of God
Todd Smedley and Thomas Myrick / Upper Room River Road Alcove
God has spoken in covenant terms throughout the Old and New Testaments. In this course we will provide an overview of the covenantal structure of biblical revelation, and examine how concepts of kingdom, covenant, and mediator unify the Scriptures. At the same time there will be a review of the development of covenant thought in the experience of the life of the church.
The Life and Letters of Paul the Apostle
Rob Norris and Jeremy Williams / Upper Room Ridgefield Alcove
The largest literary content in the New Testament claims to have been written by the Apostle Paul. In this course we will examine what is known of the apostle and his work as recorded for us in the Acts of the Apostles. We will also examine the theology the contents of the letters that bear his name.
Ron Meyer and Ralph Miller / Room 131
In this course we will look at the way in which the gospel impacts the variety of ways in which Christian parents raise their children.
Fourth Night Women’s Bible Studies
Continues the study on the book of Romans followed by The Blessing of Humility by Jerry Bridges
Janet Montague / Chapel (Room 142)
We all admire humility when we see it. But how do we practice it? How does humility—the foundational virtue of the normal Christian life–become a normal part of our everyday lives? Jerry Bridges sees in the Beatitudes a series of blessings from Jesus, a pattern for humility in action. Starting with poverty in spirit–an acknowledgment that in and of ourselves we are incapable of living holy lives pleasing to God–and proceeding through our mourning over personal sin, our hunger and thirst for righteousness, our experience of persecutions large and small, and more, we discover that humility is itself a blessing: At every turn, God is present to us, giving grace to the humble and lifting us up to blessing.
This evening Bible study is a part of Fourth Night and will meet on Wednesday nights when Fourth Night is in session.
