Community Bible Study - Day Class (Thu. 19 Jan, 2017 9:30 am - 11:30 am)

Join us as we study, "Red Sea to the Jordan River: A look at Exodus, Leviticus and Numbers." It's a story of how God delivered His chosen people, the Israelites from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation.

 

They tell the story of a holy God's faithfulness to a weak and sinful people like us. Themes like doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intercession, and failure and repentance teach us to grow spiritually mature.

 

For men, women and children. All levels of learners welcome.

 

Infant and toddler care will be provided along with a preschool through elementary age program.

Community Bible Study (CBS) Peoria Evening Class invites you to study the Gospel of Matthew!

 

This is a 30-week study for men, women and children of every denomination and every level of understanding. CBS's goal is to make disciples of the Lord Jesus Christ in our communities through caring, in-depth Bible study, available to all. CBS's format is opening in worship, core group discussion and lecture. 

 

Matthew wrote by the power of the Holy Spirit, primarily to his fellow Jews, proving through scripture that Jesus's life and ministry fulfilled the Old Testament prophecies concerning the Messiah.

 

CBS meets weekly on Thursday nights.
