The new CPC Christian Education year begins September 19. We are excited to offer women’s Bible studies again this year and hope that women of all ages will join us weekly to study God’s Word. This is a great opportunity to study the Word, pray together, fellowship and encourage one another as sisters in Christ.
Here are a few reminders:
 We will meet weekly with a new Bible study each quarter.
 Babysitting will be provided for the evening Bible study.
 We will meet Wednesdays in the library unless a larger room is required.
Please note: The fall Bible study will meet only in the evening from 6:15 to 7:45 pm.
There will be NO morning study for the fall quarter.
 The quarterly dates are as follows:
Fall: September 19, 26; October 3, 17, 24, 31; November 7, 14; December 5 *
Winter: January 9-February 27
Spring: March 6-April 24
Summer: Exact dates to be determined
*We will not have Bible Study on Oct. 10 (Mission Conference) or Nov. 21 (Eve of Thanksgiving)
The course content for the fall and spring studies will be an actual Bible study, whereas the winter and summer courses will cover a topic related to Scripture.
For our nine-week study this fall, which will begin on Wednesday, September 19, we will be working through an inductive Bible Study of Chapters 1-11 of Genesis. The study will be led by Emily Phelps.
Part One – “The Creation explores the Biblical account of Creation found in chapters one and two, how the world was created, and how man came into being. ‘In the beginning, God created the heavens and the earth.’ Do I believe this statement that God has revealed in His Book? What does this really mean, and how does it affect my dai-ly life? When you immerse yourself in the Biblical account of Creation, you will be led to know your Creator in deeper ways, increasing your awe of Him. You will also gain insight into who you are in relationship to your Mak-er and will gain a more complete understanding of your own purpose and how to live.”
Part Two – “The Fall, the Flood and the Nations explores the truths found in chapters three through eleven of Genesis and lays a solid foundation for the rest of the story. Adam and Eve, the serpent and an apple? Noah’s Ark and a worldwide flood? The Tower of Babel? Are these real or imagined? Stories or fact? What difference does it make anyway? Genesis holds the keys to understanding the origin of sin and evil, the justice of God’s judgment, and the mercy of God’s plan for the redemption of mankind and hope for a lost and dying world.”
