Adult Bible Study

Wednesday Evening Bible Study
Wednesday evenings in May, at 7:00 on Zoom. 
We will look at some common sayings that may or may not be completely true!  
Our study book is the Bible, along with Adam Hamilton’s book,  Half Truths:  God Helps Those Who Help Themselves and Other Things the Bible Doesn’t Say.
This 5-week study will search for the whole truth by comparing common Christian clichés with the wisdom found in Scripture. The clichés include:
    Everything happens for a reason.
    God helps those who help themselves.
    God won’t give you more than you can handle.
    God said it, I believe it, that settles it.
    Love the sinner, hate the sin.
