Our Sunday School Class

Where we love the sinner, hate the sin, and seek His kingdom


A big Thank You to everyone who has filled an Operation Christmas Child shoebox, served at the OCC distribution center, fulfilled a child's wish on an Angel Tree, served as a ringer for the Salvation Army, or provided hope and encouragement in a myriad of other ways to others this season!

Notes From Today's Lesson (my version...feel free to disagree or correct me)

Looking at aviation charts. These charts may be a little useful but not very useful because they contain a lot of markings, etc. that need interpretation.

Genesis 30:1-6

Understanding the society at the time, historical narrative makes more sense. The context is important in historical narrative. Historical narrative describes what happened...not prescribes what you should do.

Proverbs 22:6; train up a child...this is a principle , not a promise

Wisdom literature...proverbs are general principles...not legal rules that apply 100% of the time. Examples can be negative or positive.

Sorry the notes are slack today....my mind is elsewhere.

Prophecy-Joel 2:28-32

Galatians 1:1-7
