Every Tuesday morning at 9:30, Pastor Shank teaches a Bible class in the church’s lower level on the assigned readings for the coming weekend. The readings from the Old Testament, Epistle and Gospel typically complement one another, and there is a continuity from week to week within the seasons of the Church Year. The organization of these readings, or Pericope, is designed to give the regular worshiper a broad exposure to biblical text and teaching. Many of those who attend this class find that it is very helpful to understand the purpose and theme of the readings before they come to church. That understanding often enhances their worship. The class is mostly attended by retired members since it does take place during the workday. If you were not aware of the class, we encourage you to attend. Perhaps you too will find it to be a blessing in your week and a help to your weekend worship.
