Bible Reading Challenge

Join with us in reading through the entire Bible in two years. We are starting in Genesis in the Old Testament and reading through Matthew in the New Testament.  Come to Emmanuel and explore the Bible with us!

Adult Sunday School Class

To coordinate with the new congregational Bible Reading Challenge, the sole adult Sunday School offering beginning in January is a video series providing a thorough introduction to the first five books of the Bible – the Pentateuch.  The series features OP pastor Dr. Mark Winder and is produced by the Reformed Forum.  The series has the stated goals to:

·       help students grasp the historical context, authorship, date, and purpose of each book

·       trace each book’s significant theological themes and their development

·       examine how Christ is the center of each book by exploring Christological themes within the unified story of Scripture
