Numbers 21:4-9

4And they journeyed from mount Hor by the way of the Red sea, to compass the land of Edom: and the soul of the people was much discouraged because of the way. 5And the people spake against God, and against Moses, Wherefore have ye brought us up out of Egypt to die in the wilderness? for there is no bread, neither is there any water; and our soul loatheth this light bread. 6And the LORD sent fiery serpents among the people, and they bit the people; and much people of Israel died. 7Therefore the people came to Moses, and said, We have sinned, for we have spoken against the LORD, and against thee; pray unto the LORD, that he take away the serpents from us. And Moses prayed for the people. 8And the LORD said unto Moses, Make thee a fiery serpent, and set it upon a pole: and it shall come to pass, that every one that is bitten, when he looketh upon it, shall live. 9And Moses made a serpent of brass, and put it upon a pole, and it came to pass, that if a serpent had bitten any man, when he beheld the serpent of brass, he lived. (KJV)

2 Kings 18:1-4

1Now it came to pass in the third year of Hoshea son of Elah king of Israel, that Hezekiah the son of Ahaz king of Judah began to reign. 2Twenty and five years old was he when he began to reign; and he reigned twenty and nine years in Jerusalem. His mother's name also was Abi, the daughter of Zachariah. 3And he did that which was right in the sight of the LORD, according to all that David his father did. 4He removed the high places, and brake the images, and cut down the groves, and brake in pieces the brasen serpent that Moses had made: for unto those days the children of Israel did burn incense to it: and he called it Nehushtan. (KJV)

Adult Sunday School

The Adult Education class meets on Sunday mornings at 10:15, following the worship service. They are using a new study book from the Interpretation Bible Studies series from Westminster John Knox Books. It is an 8-week study of the Acts of the Apostles. The topics include the history of very early church development (known as “The Way”), the work of the Apostles among Jews and gentiles, and incredible stories of the Apostle Paul spreading the Gospel and beginning community churches throughout the Mediterranean. It is a powerful introduction to the meaning of discipleship and what God and Jesus call us to do in the world. Study books are available. We hope to fill the Founders’ Room with people interested in a Bible Study for the fall. Childcare is available.
