BibleGrasp -- an 'everybody welcome' Wednesday series Send a link to a friend
[AUG. 23, 2005] Does the Bible really intrigue you? Are there many parts of the world's most important book that are difficult for you to grasp? Yet, do you believe that the Bible somehow is addressed by God to you as his word to guide, comfort and encourage you in all your relationships?
If so, regardless of whether you're a member at Lincoln Christian Church or some other church -- or not a member of any church, Pastor John Castelein, preacher and Bible professor, can help you grasp the historical setting of each and every Bible book as well as its message for your life and family today.
These Wednesday evening courses, starting at 6:30 p.m. from Sept. 7 on, will provide you with maps, charts, outlines and your own BibleGrasp notebook. All you need to bring is curiosity, your own study Bible and your questions. A 5:30 p.m. meal and child care are provided. In this fun and relaxed atmosphere, no one will be called on to read or answer questions.
