Growing Strong in the Word:How to Read and Understand the Bible


#SummerStrong Elective

First and Third Thursdays, 6:30 – 8:30 PM, with Jim Snelson

At times, we have all felt uncomfortable talking to our neighbors and friends about the Bible and Christianity. This class will introduce the concept of hermeneutics. “Herman who?” you might ask. Hermeneutics will equip you with what you need to study, understand, and share your faith with confidence to those around you. You’ll discover many useful tools – most of which are free – to help you in studying the Bible. We won’t answer all your questions, but will get a good start on becoming more confident in God’s Word.
