Friendship Class

by Carol Westfall
The Friendship Bible Class is true to its name – friends studying God’s Word together. Each Sunday we further unpack the sermon from the week before, and since we attend different service times, it is interesting to hear the various message interpretations.
Our class is faithfully led by two teachers that alternate months. Frank Brooksher and Bob Davis lead a discussion-style class with questions and input from all class members in a very informal setting throughout the hour. They have each done a more in-depth study of the message during the week, which brings out so many more interesting and thought-provoking ideas.
Class members of all ages, varying backgrounds, and church experience keep it interesting!  Getting deeper into the past week’s sermon gives each of us a better understanding of the Word, and more importantly, how to apply it to our own lives.
We have a time of sharing and praying together led by Melinda Cox, our Class Director, at the close of each class. The praises and prayer concerns are shared by email during the week to each class member.
We have been very involved in the Adopt-A-Grad Program for the past three years.  It has been a blessing to send gifts, treats and notes of encouragement to these recent high school graduates during their first year of college.  So far, we have adopted a total of 5 students.
If you are looking for a friendly group of adults to learn with and apply the Word to your own life, please join us at 9:45 every Sunday morning in Room 221!
