2016 Monroe Men’s Bible Study
Last year a small group of men began a spiritual journey together in a small neighborhood in Monroe, NC. 2015 took us on our faith journey covering the study of the first book of the Bible: Genesis. We took our time learning about the deeds of Abraham as a result of his deep-rooted faith and belief in the God of Israel. We used Dan Gruber’s book, The Children of Abraham: A Course on Commitment, along with the Scriptures as our guide. We had a wonderful time of sharing and growth each gathering, pairing up as prayer partners for further encouragement midweek. We met every other Monday, as this seemed to work well for everyone, giving plenty of time for homework assignments and studies.
Discovering Moses Series
For 2016, we will be studying the 2nd book of the Bible and a man whom God developed to be a great leader of Israel: Moses. We are not going to use any additional materials but rather we will focus on the Scriptures themselves.
If you do a simple word search for Moses’ name you will discover that there are 852 times that his name is mentioned throughout the Scriptures. I would say it is safe to assume that he is a pretty important figure as far as our faith is concerned and therefore very important for us to study. Our kick off session will take place on January 18th, 2016.
