Systematic Theology
Every Thursday, from 03/06/2014 to 08/28/2014, 6:30 PM - 8:00 PM

There is going to begin a study on Systematic Theology on Thursday nights on March 6.  It is for anyone who is interested in this type of study. 


Systematic theology is any study that answers the question, “What does the whole Bible teach us today?” about any given topic.
Wayne Grudem,


We will be using Wayn Grudem’s book on “Bible Doctrines” as a text book.  It is a more simple systematic study than his full “Systematic Theology” book.


The books cost around 18.00 and I will be ordering them in the next few days.  By Monday I hope.  If you are interested and/or need a book please let me know by Sunday.  The class will be a discussion format with reasonable reading throughout the week.  This is certainly not a mandatory class but I think it will be a great opportunity to grow in and reinforce what we believe. 


I am not sure of the duration of the class.  There are 34 lessons in the book but several can be lumped together and some of them will take longer than a week.  Regardless, this should prove to be a good study so let me know.
