The Rise of Ancient Israel
Thursday Evening Adult Faith Formation
Sept. 7 – Nov. 16, 2017 (7:30 – 9:15 p.m.)
The Rise of Ancient Israel covers the biblical books of Joshua, Judges,
1 Kings, 1 Chronicles, and parts of 2 Kings and 2 Chronicles.
We will study:
- How Joshua leads God’s people to the Promised Land
- The cycles of sin and how God leads his people throughout
- The judges – Gideon, Samson and others – that God raises up to rescue his people
- The lives of Joshua, David, and Solomon and their remarkable relationships with God
As you study the lives of judges and kings, pray for the leaders of nations and the leaders of our Church – the Pope and bishops. And as you study the Bible, pray and listen for that still, quiet whisper of the Holy Spirit, prompting you to amend your life. Use God’s Word to help you repent, to accept God’s mercy, to change, and to become the person God has created you to become – a saint in the making.
The cost is $25 if registered by August 20. Cost increases to $30 after August 20. Cost includes Study Guide. No refunds. Scholarship assistance is available.
