When administered by the Spirit of God, the Word of God is alive and fascinating! For many years now the local congregation has held Bible studies with individuals and families in their homes, and at the church building with larger classes. The studies are focused on the needs of those in the study or in the larger class.
Some prefer the smaller number in a home because they find it easier to ask questions particular to their needs. While others would rather just listen and reflect on a lesson being taught. For this reason we have classes at the church building that focus the lessons around particular age groups and stages of life:
The pressures upon adults these days can be overwhelming: raising: children, teenagers, young adults, along with the constant increase in pressures from work, rising prices, crime in the neighborhood, identity theft, etc., and then, to top it off, the constant barrage of advertising and solicitation to convince you to be discontent and buy something new. It is very easy to lose your focus on what is really important. It is too easy today to neglect and lose the most valuable thing you posses – your eternal soul! At the Church of God we care first about your soul and your relationship with God.
In our adult classes you will find teachers that themselves have established a testimony of personal devotion and faithfulness to serving Christ. They don’t subscribe to a headquarters somewhere or a book publisher for their lessons, but in their lives and personal devotions they pray and seek direction from the Word and God’s Holy Spirit for teaching and instructing their class. You will find that they will be frank and honest with you concerning the Gospel and your soul needs.
Jesus said: “For what is a man profited, if he shall gain the whole world, and lose his own soul? or what shall a man give in exchange for his soul? For the Son of man shall come in the glory of his Father with his angels; and then he shall reward every man according to his works.” (Matt 16:26-27)
The eternal reward for the neglect of the soul and not serving Christ is to be forever lost in eternity. But even in this life there is a reward we receive according to the works we have done. The Word of God instructs us: “Be not deceived; God is not mocked: for whatsoever a man soweth, that shall he also reap.” (Gal 6:7) If we neglect attention to God’s will as taught from his word, you can be sure there will be many consequences. Our personal and business successes will not outweigh the “reaping” that will come soon from our neglect. Take time to visit us in class and you will find that you will be inspired to search out you own soul’s need and find and keep that which can only satisfy: a faithful love relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ!
