Bible Discovery Class


Description


What does this mean? All of us have questions. When we ask “What is this” and “How does this work” we can open up a science textbook and find an answer. But there are questions that these sorts of books don’t answer: What happens when I die? Why are there bad people in the world? Where does good come from? These questions, and many others like them are questions that only the bible can answer. Please join us in our Bible Discovery Class so that we can ask the question, “what does this mean” and find answers from the bible.

The Ascension of Our Lord

"<9> After he said this, he was taken up before their very eyes, and a cloud hid him from their sight.  <10> 	They were looking intently up into the sky as he was going, when suddenly two men dressed in white stood beside them. <11> “Men of Galilee,” they said, “why do you stand here looking into the sky? This same Jesus, who has been taken from you into heaven, will come back in the same way you have seen him go into heaven.”" (Acts 1:9–11 NIV11-GK)

Forty days after Jesus rose from the dead he went up into heaven. On Thursday, May 29th, at 7 PM, we have the privilege of looking at God’s word to hear what he is still doing for us not just as our risen Lord, but also as our Ascended Lord. Please join us.
