Stories Jesus Told: How to Read a Parable
September 11 through October 30
We love stories. That’s why we go to movies, read books, and listen to friends recount an experience. That’s also why teachers use the technique of storytelling to make a difficult concept easier for us to process. Jesus told stories, or parables, for that very reason—and to help us understand how God wants us to live life. Sometimes, however, stories like the Good Samaritan and the Prodigal Son can be interpreted in more than one way. Even Bible scholars are divided on their meanings.
In Stories Jesus Told, you’ll explore six of Jesus’ parables to learn how to read, interpret, and live them in your daily life.
Preparing My Heart for Advent:
A Spiritual Pilgrimage for the Christmas Season
November 6 through December 18
The class will not meet the Wednesday of Thanksgiving week
We want to prepare for Christmas with a listening heart, but often the holiday uproar overcomes our good intentions. In Preparing My Heart for Advent, Ann Stewart offers a daily November Bible study reinforced by December devotions to help you halt the insanity of the season and embrace the joy of our Savior’s birth. Newly revised, it now includes a discussion leader’s guide and family Advent questions.
This study, written by Harmony’s very own Ann Stewart, will be our 2019 Harmony UMC Advent and Christmas theme.
Books will be available for purchase beginning October 28.
30 Days to Understanding the Bible
January 8 through April 1
This study will guide us as we move through Lent.
If you’ve ever confused the Ark of the Covenant with the ark of Noah, or Jericho with Jeroboam, Max Anders’ classic book, 30 Days to Understanding the Bible, is for you. In just fifteen minutes a day, you’ll learn the Bible’s key people, events, and doctrines to get more out of God’s Word. This simple-to-use, straightforward guide has been recommended by Bible teachers and pastors for thirty years, and now it’s available in an expanded thirtieth anniversary edition–with the most requested topics from the original edition restored and updated for today’s readers.
Books will be available for purchase beginning December 15.
