Description: The Faith Class focuses on inductive Bible study in a teacher-led discussion format and includes sharing and group prayer. Out-of-class functions consist of a quarterly women’s prayer breakfast, a bi-monthly potluck dinner and an evening of fellowship in a home. The class is open to all.

Topic: 1 Corinthians & 2 Corinthians
1 Corinthians highlights how the gospel of Jesus Christ replaces pride with love and unites Christians to God and to each other. 2 Corinthians contains Paul’s defense of his ministry and teaching, helping his readers see that the gospel is full of seemingly paradoxical truths – strength from weakness, life through death, and comfort in affliction.
Time: 9:00 a.m. Leaders: Teaching Team Location: Fellowship Hall
Description: The Women’s Class is an interactive Bible study that also has prayer time. Women of all ages are invited to attend. Social events also take place outside of regular class time.

QUEST FOR CHRISTIANITY CLASS
Description: The Quest class is designed for people trying to make sense of life. Questions are encouraged. We want to show that the Bible is relevant today. Non-believers and mature believers of all ages are welcome.
Topic: Key Words in the Bible

Faith and Science – 2019 Summer Series
Join us from July 7 to September 2 for our Adult Summer Series entitled Faith and Science. Throughout the summer we will be tackling a variety of topics about how faith and science work together.
This is an opportunity to be informed about different science perspectives and how Christians view these topics. The goal is to understand different perspectives and not to debate the topics discussed.
The Christian church does not have a strong history of talking about faith and science as compatible topics. A large percentage of students who leave the church after high school graduation cite “faith and science” as a reason why they left. When these students attend higher education institutions they are introduced to new concepts and ideas about science and faith. Students are often challenged to pick between faith OR science; not “faith AND science.”
We hope this series will help us navigate these topics in a way that does NOT drive people away from God. We can disagree and yet, still worship together while giving God the glory for His creation that science is revealing.
Join us on Sundays at 9 a.m. or 10:30 a.m. in the Fellowship Hall from July 7 through September 2, 2019 for “Faith and Science.” Presenters include professors from local universities along with people from BVBC.
The 2018 Summer Series, Apologetics: Knowing & Defending the Faith, has concluded. You can still access the weekly audio of the class via podcast. You can access the podcasts via iTunes or Podbean. The speakers’ notes are also be available in MyBrandywine.
