ADULT CHRISTIAN EDUCATION
STUDY OF THE GOSPEL OF LUKE
Led by Larry Greenslit and Bob Porter, beginning on September 16
The man we know as “Luke” was apparently a fabulous multi-tasker – besides being a doctor of medicine, he was a prolific writer (his two books, Luke and Acts, take up over 27% of the New Testament), and an evangelist who accompanied Paul on missionary journeys but was not afraid to disagree with him (or, to put it more gently, “offer a different perspective”) – who knows what else he did?
Please join us at 9:45 a.m. in the Triple Room as we journey with Jesus and examine the unique perspective that Luke offers into our Savior’s birth, life, ministry, death, and resurrection.
LED BY PAT MANALIO
SUNDAY, SEPTEMBER 16-NOVEMBER 11
Join Pat Manalio on Sunday, September 16th as she begins a 9-week course on Christian Caregiving. Through speakers, various texts and written material, she will explore the entire gamete of caring for older adults (parents, siblings, spouses, and friends). Unique to this course is the study of the interaction between caregiver and care receiver. Focus is also given to the caregiver’s psyche. At each session, attendees will have the opportunity to share their stories, and gain perspective through questions. All sessions may stand alone, or the entire course may be attended.

"WHO IS JESUS?"
by Judy Yates Siker
The Bible Buddies study group meets at the church on Monday nights from 7:00-9:00 pm in Room 22 beginning September 10th. This study will run for about nine weeks (with possible holiday exclusions). This study begins with the four gospels, then looks at Paul's writings and the book of Hebrews, as well as some writings not chosen for the Bible, to see who people thought Jesus was. The study will conclude with a look at Jewish and Muslim literature, as well as contemporary writings.
The cost of the book is $9.00. Please contact Sara Porter by August 20th so books can be ordered. She can be reached at 703-670-8737 or firstname.lastname@example.org.
All are welcome at both studies, even if you can't make every session. We work collaboratively as we enjoy searching God's word.
