Community Bible Study Peoria Evening Class

Dec 21, 2017 from 7:00 PM to 8:30 PM

Community Bible Study Peoria Evening Class invites YOU to study "Red Sea to the Jordan River" (Exodus, Leviticus, and Numbers) for 2017-2018.

The Bible Study is for men, women and children of every denomination and every level of understanding.

This is a 30 week study that tells the story of how God delivered His chosen people, the Israelites, from Egyptian slavery and established them as a new nation.  The books tell of a holy God's faithfulness to weak and sinful people.  Biblical themes like doubt and faith, complaining and grace, crisis and intercession, failure and repentance provide numerous opportunities for spiritual growth through this CBS study.

All leaders in CBS are volunteers.  The small registration fee (adults $35, children infant-teens $10) and weekly free-will offerings cover the cost of producing materials and annual gift to host church.

CBS meets on THURSDAY EVENINGS STARTING SEPTEMBER 7 THRU MAY 3 AT WOODLAND BAPTIST CHURCH 6915 N. ALLEN ROAD PEORIA, IL  61614 AT 7:00-8:30 PM.

7:00-7:10  Opening & Worship

7:15-8:00  Core Group Discussions

8:05-8:30   Teaching Time

Participants grow in knowledge and their relationship with the Living God through INDIVIDUAL STUDY (answering questions and reading commentary on selected Bible passages), SMALL GROUP DISCUSSIONS (weekly sharing of answers and insights in small groups led by a trained leader), EFFECTIVE TEACHING (lecture presented by the Teaching Director, a trained lay leader).
