How to read and interpret the Bible

Ever wondered after a plain reading of a Bible text where to go next in understanding it more deeply?

How do you look for the writer’s intentions or the theological themes or the cultural context?

Join Geno Hildebrandt in a semester long (15 week) course answering these questions.

Class meets in the pastoral office conference room from 7:00 to 7:40 pm. At 7:45 pm class participants will join those from other classes in the sanctuary for a time of worship and ministry.

Spend the first half of the semester learning the rules for sound Bible interpretation and the second half of the semester understanding how to teach the Bible in a small group setting.The principles learned are also useful for teaching in a classroom or an auditorium. The class goal is to prepare leaders for small group ministry and house church leadership.
