The Word Speaks – Wednesday Bible Studies
Wednesday Inductive Bible Study Series 2013.
We offer both a Wednesday morning and evening study, The Word Speaks, at 9am & 7pm. This study follows a large Group/Small Group format and includes a time of coffee and fellowship both during and after the study.
The evening study has two tracks. One follows along with The Word Speaks study, using the same materials and weekly format, with a large group/small group. The second track uses In The Word study guides and an audio lecture to compliment the study.
Bible Study is a discipleship tool that helps us grow as followers of Jesus Christ through study of God’s Word. We study in depth to know its historical and cultural context, and through a systematic careful reading of the words of God, “spoken” through His Word, the Bible, we are equipped and encouraged in our daily faith walk.
God’s Word tells us that His desire is to have a close and personal relationship with each one of us. We believe personal study of the Bible is how we get to know Him.
The 2012/2013 year is studying the beginning books, Genesis through Leviticus (Leviticus through Joshua if you select the In The Word track) with a final Old Testament Foundations review at the close. Following in the steps of In The Word, this study will continue looking at context and the cultural nuances while exploring the historical narrative written dependent on God’s Holy Spirit for inspiration and guidance.
The study format:
Each person is invited to study the prepared lesson using the Bible and the worksheet provided. (Approaching this weekly study as if it is the first time you have seen the biblical text). Coming to the scripture without preconceived notions helps to avoid inaccuracies and assumptions.
Through prayer and the guidance of the Holy Spirit, each student will discover truths for themselves. The Holy Spirit teaches through careful study and individual “aha” moments so the student learns to listen to His voice.
During small group discussion each group member is invited to answer the questions from their personal study, any notes from their own personal journaling, if they so wish, and are asked to share only from personal study done prior to small group.
Lessons are available for the following week during small group time or in the church lobby during the week. They will not be available on the website due to copyright issues, however, your leaders will email these to you if you would prefer to receive them electronically.
This Bible Study is led by a team who individually prepare their lessons each week, study following the guidelines asked of all attendees, and then meet as a small group prior to the Wednesday study, so that, as leaders they are alert to the material, understand its direction, and are able to better assist their groups during discussion time.
