Through the study of God's word in community with others, we increase in knowledge of the scriptures and God's will for our lives and find comfort and support in the faith stories we share with each other. All are encouraged to participate in the life of First Church McAllen through Bible study. Know that childcare is available during all church functions including studies.
From his beginnings as a humble carpenter to his all-important role as the earthly father of Jesus Christ, Joseph's place in the nativity story is sometimes overlooked but contains valuable lessons for all of us. Join Adam Hamilton as he examines Christmas through the eyes of Joseph. Absent from much of the biblical narrative, Joseph never spoke a word, but his courageous actions were crucial to the birth of Christ and God's salvation plan for humanity.
As you read this book, you will understand how Joseph's story is much like our own. In life, we encounter circumstances that we would never have chosen for ourselves. At times it can be tempting just to walk away. Joseph provides us a great example of humbly obeying God even when we don't understand and faithfully moving forward in the strength that God provides.
DISCIPLE is a program of disciplined Bible study, drawing upon the work of scholars, the personal Bible reading and study of the participant, and dynamic group discussion to aid understanding of the Bible. The study gives the Old and New Testaments equal time, emphasizing the wholeness of the Bible as a revelation of God. This 32-week study is led by Susan Turlapati. The class will gather for coffee and fellowship at 9:30 am with the lessons starting promptly at 10:00 am. Workbooks are available for purchase in the church office ($40.00).
