Luke 12:13-21

13And one of the company said unto him, Master, speak to my brother, that he divide the inheritance with me. 14And he said unto him, Man, who made me a judge or a divider over you? 15And he said unto them, Take heed, and beware of covetousness: for a man's life consisteth not in the abundance of the things which he possesseth. 16And he spake a parable unto them, saying, The ground of a certain rich man brought forth plentifully: 17And he thought within himself, saying, What shall I do, because I have no room where to bestow my fruits? 18And he said, This will I do: I will pull down my barns, and build greater; and there will I bestow all my fruits and my goods. 19And I will say to my soul, Soul, thou hast much goods laid up for many years; take thine ease, eat, drink, and be merry. 20But God said unto him, Thou fool, this night thy soul shall be required of thee: then whose shall those things be, which thou hast provided? 21So is he that layeth up treasure for himself, and is not rich toward God. (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.
