Dave Barker Class - Understanding the Bible


As a follow-up to our fall series on Biblical Authority, the elders have asked Dr. Dave Barker to join us on Wednesday evenings beginning January 17th until March 7th from 7-9 pm. Ben and Nicole Ankenmann will be hosting the group in the auditorium of 383 Hughson St. We’d invite you to join us for the 8 week course entitled, ‘Reading and Understanding the Bible: A Pathway for Good Interpretation’.  Maybe you’ve found reading the Bible challenging at times. It can become more complicated when you try to understand and apply it. Dr Barker has spent his life helping people understand how to read, understand and apply Scripture well. He is a passionate speaker who communicates clearly. See bio below. There is no cost for this class. Please email the office to sign up.
