August 10-13, 2020 “Out of Egypt: The Exodus Up Close”
Fred Baltz, teaching; Laurie Neill, preaching
Who was the Pharaoh of the Exodus? Can we know? Does it matter? What can we say about the plagues in light of science? Where and how did Israel cross the “Red Sea”? Might remains of the chariot army yet be found?
Appreciate the Law in its proper context, as a gift from God, not as a means of salvation. Consider what “hardening the heart” was and still is. Hear again of the God of Israel who came down to set his people free from bondage. Come and compare the Exodus with God’s New Testament act of deliverance, the cross.
Dr. Baltz will be seen in the coming documentary film: Patterns of Evidence, the Red Sea Miracle.
August 17-20, 2020 “Philippians: Finding Contentment and Even Joy in Times of Hardship”
Wayne Peterson, teacher; Todd Olson, preacher
In Philippians, Paul conveys a powerful message about the secret of contentment. Though he experienced hardship, poverty, beatings, illness, and even his current imprisonment, in every circumstance Paul learned to be content, even joyful. By following Jesus Christ, we look forward with hope, not back in regret.
