Hourglass Bible Study

Study of Elijah – Sundays, Jan. 16 – March 6, 4:30-5:30 PM

Starting January 16 and continuing through March 6, the Hourglass class will begin studying the life and work of Elijah. Although this prophet is one of the greatest figures in the Old Testament, he does not have a book carrying his name. Instead, he is mentioned throughout the Old and New Testament. We will combine all these references to Elijah in this study, so we can get a clearer picture of his actions, character, and influence on the whole of scripture. If you would like to know more about the class, see the information in the handouts below or contact Mary Ray at mbray5@sbcglobal.net.

The structure of the one-hour class, as in the past, will begin with a discussion of the previous week’s readings and the group’s initial reading of the current week’s passage. That will be followed by period of quiet reflection, sharing of our reflections and questions, and a discussion of what we want to explore in the upcoming week. Then, in the following class, we will share what we learned.
