Studying God's Word

Sunday School: He Chose the Nails

He Chose the NailsSunday School class, at 10am in the Sunday School room behind the narthex, is open to both Adults and Youth. Please feel free to invite a neighbor or co-worker to join us for one of the 45-60 minute sessions.

We are doing a new series from February 18th – March 25th– a study entitled “He Chose the Nails” by Max Lucado.

Every gift from God reveals his love, but no gift reveals his love more than the gifts of the cross. These gifts came not wrapped in paper but in passion. They were not placed around a tree but around a cross. They were not covered with ribbons but sprinkled with the blood that Christ shed on our behalf.

In this five-session Bible study, we explore the many gifts that Christ provided to us at his crucifixion. These include not only the gift of the cross, but also the gift of the thorns that pierced his brow. The nails that tore his flesh. The seamless robe that he removed for us. The empty tomb where he forever defeated sin and death.

The hill of the cross is rich with the gifts of God’s grace. These were gifts he didn’t have to give. The only required act for our salvation was the shedding of blood, yet God did so much more. So, as we unwrap these gifts, we need to pause and listen for his voice. As we do, perhaps we will hear him whisper, “I did it just for you.”

Our facilitator is Rev. Terri McLellan. Please join us in the discussion.
