WOW! That’s Interesting. Westkirk on Wednesday (WOW) begins this Wednesday evening, January 11. In addition to the children's and student ministry, this winter/spring semester we will be offering two new adult classes from 6:30 to 7:30.
And then, beginning on January 25 our first Explorers’ Class of 2017 will begin for those who wish to explore membership at Westkirk.
Here is what begins on January 11:
Ecclesiastes Bible Study. Ecclesiastes might be the most misjudged book in the Bible. It is wrongly read as being hopeless and without use for the Christian. This winter, Pastor George Edema will lead us in taking a closer look at the book of Ecclesiastes. We will confront a few key interpretive stumbling blocks and give special attention to the wisdom book genre. You will be pleasantly surprised by this book! Ecclesiastes will meet in the Lounge.
The Lord’s Prayer. When the disciples asked Jesus how to pray, little did they know that they would be given a model for prayer that would be used for generations. Prayer is central to our fellowship with God, and our prayer life is directly affected by what we believe about God. In this DVD series, Dr. R. Albert Mohler Jr. shows that the pattern of prayer Jesus provides is few in words, yet massive in meaning. His prayer reflects true theology and proper doxology —- a perfect guide for our own lives. Philip and Allyson Groner will lead this 12-week study in the Hospitality Room.
The first Explorers’ Class for 2017 will be January 25 - February 15 at 6:30 during WOW. Mark your attendance on today’s Connect Card, sign up at the Welcome Center or RSVP to Pastor Michael at The Explorers’ Class is your gateway to membership at Westkirk Presbyterian Church. Pastor Michael leads the class and it is a great opportunity to get to know him better, meet other Westkirk attendees and find out more about the church. It is a no-obligation experience as you will be given plenty of time after the 4 week class concludes to determine if you would like to join in membership. If you cannot attend all the sessions, please let Pastor Michael know and he will make alternative arrangements for you. We look forward to seeing you there!
