“Finding Forgiveness in the Parables of Jesus” Bible Study
Sundays, January 31, February 7, 14 and 21 – Bible Study Series of Four Classes
The parables of Jesus are more than simple stories with a single message, they are small worlds in which Jesus’ teachings reside. Jesus tells us parables in the Scriptures because they stick with us; we can chew on them and they shape us. Together, we will be looking at forgiveness as a theme in parables, because we can never be reminded too often of the forgiveness we find in Christ. The aim of this series is to grow in our understanding of the kind of forgiveness we possess. Classes will be held in the Library at 9am.
This 4 part series will be taught by a new Bible study teacher, Sean Mcleish.
Sean McLeish from Moody Bible Institute & The Collective Church LA
Sean McLeish was born and raised in Southern California. He found faith in Jesus at age eighteen. After finding faith, he worked every job that allowed him to disciple younger men and buy enough theology books to satiate his appetite for knowledge of God and the Bible. He attended Moody Bible Institute in Chicago, IL. to gain a formal Bible education, and soon after met his wife Ashley. They live in Los Angeles and look forward to doing church planting here.
February 28 and March 6 – Bible Study Series of Two
“Conquest” Led by Kyle Young
From Adam to Jesus, God has been weaving a redemptive plan for humanity into action. The old testament mission for His people (the nation of Israel), leads directly to the new testament good news found in Jesus Christ. In this class series “Conquest”, we will look at how the Old and New Testaments connect together, and how from the beginning, God intended for men and women to be conquerors. This will be a 2 part series, held on February 28th and March 6th 9 am till 10 am in the Library.
Kyle Young of Collective Church
Kyle grew up in Thousand Oaks, California. Shortly after graduating from the University of Southern California, he moved to West LA. He served as Children’s Ministry Director at Collective Church, a church plant from Reality LA in Hollywood CA. Kyle is getting married in April to his fianceé Courtney, and looks forward to spending a June honeymoon in Europe.
