Joyseekers Class

by Deborah Stern
Happy New Year 2024!  With the new year comes an opportunity for a fresh start and new resolutions.  If your resolutions include delving deeper into God’s Word, please consider checking out the Joyseekers Bible study class on Sunday mornings at 9:45 am.
Joyseekers is a group of warm and welcoming people, who have a desire to read God’s Word and dig deeper into the scripture passages by asking questions and engaging in an interactive  discussion.  We have three wonderful teachers, David Sprouse, Jack Hayslip and Wayne Uecker, who rotate teaching responsibilities.  The class utilizes the Explore the Bible study guide that is published by Lifeway.  The quarterly studies alternate between Old Testament and New Testament books of the Bible.
The class just completed a study of Mark where we walked with Jesus and his disciples through Jesus’ ministry and the final days leading to his crucifixion and resurrection.  Starting in December and over the next three months, we will be studying the book of Genesis.  Discussions over Genesis chapters 1 and 2 have been very active and so this promises to be another wonderful study.
In addition to the study, each Sunday begins with a time of praise and prayer requests.  Kathleen Cook does a wonderful job of capturing these requests and publishing a weekly email so we can pray for our class members and others throughout the week.   

If you are looking for a Bible study class, we would love to have you join us any Sunday morning.  As a fairly new member myself, I can assure you the  welcome will be warm and no pressure applied.  Whether you choose to sit back and observe or jump into the discussion, either is welcome.
