    • Bible Journaling


      Psalm 1:1-2 says "Blessed is the man . . . whose delight is in the law of the LORD,

      and on his law he meditates day and night."

      Bible Journaling is taking a few passages and really thinking about what God is saying to me personally.  Just as God has created and gifted each of us individually, so He has equipped us to meditate on His Word.  During January and February we will be focusing our classes on one of the "I AM" statements of Jesus.  We will begin each class with a devotion explaining the I AM statement for that week.  After a quiet time of meditation, we will be learning a technique that will help us personalize/visualize this statement for us. 

          We meet every Monday from 6:30-8:30,  here is our schedule.

      • Jan. 7 - Introduction into what is Bible Journaling/How do I do it
      • Jan. 14, & 28, Feb. 11, & 25 Focused study on an "I Am" statement
      • Jan. 21  Feb. 4 & 18 open class - come and do your own thing, finish what we started the week before etc. 
      • Ash Wednesday is March 6th.  We will be focusing on Lent during March and April. 

      Watch for a display in the Welcome Center starting on Dec. 30th.
