God has given us a new pastor and his family--Pastor Brad Cooper, Kiki, his wife, and four bright and beautiful children: Karis, Micah, Joshua and Caleb. Our pastor is a great communicator who is authentic, honest, humble, intelligent, and transparent. His sermon last Sunday on the "High Priestly Prayer of Jesus," recorded in John 17, is one you will want to get a cassette audio copy to hear.
The Celebration Class is a cross generational gathering of various ages of adults that meets on Sunday mornings to celebrate Jesus and study God's Holy Word, the Bible. Lavon and Arlette Revells are the teachers or facilitators. There is never a dull moment and they know how to get class members involved in the discussion of the subject material.
Having recently completed a study of the Book of Revelation called Agents of the Apocalypse by Dr. David Jeremiah, we now have begun a new study with David Jeremiah in Agents of Babylon--a study of the Book of Daniel. The video series along with the study guide that Arlette and Lavon gave as a gift to each class member or one to each couple is one of the most exciting studies I have experienced.
In Dr. David Jeremiah's study Guide, Agents of Babylon, he writes, "Jesus Christ has a Kingdom that will never be overthrown, and shall finally stand out as eternal and entirely successful. Today we are living on the threshold of that age to come. It is almost time for the arrival of the stone cut out without hands. We should not be discouraged or depressed that the end of earthly kingdoms will soon come, but rather encouraged and elated that the glorious Kingdom of Christ will soon appear.
If you want to experience a dynamic Sunday school class led by two dedicated facilitators and teachers you will want to be a part of our Celebration Class.
Lavon and Arlette Revells extend a personal invitation to you to attend the Celebration Class this Sunday morning at 9:50.
The class meets on the lower level of our educational wing of Christian Life Worship Center, in a classroom known as Stephanie's Place, named in loving memory of the life and legacy of Stephanie Ellen Morgan, a dedicated educator during her adult life. You may enter the classroom from the parking lot to the right of the rose garden.
Melvine and I are members of this Sunday school class, and we invite you to join with us and many others who enjoy this Bible study class.
The class begins at 9:50 a. m. at Christian Life Worship Center in Athens, GA. The church is located at 125 Kathwood Drive, one mile north of the Athens Perimeter just off US Highway 129.
We would love to see you this morning. You will thrill to being a vital part of this exciting study of the Bible. The weather may be cold, but it will be warm inside our church. We welcome you with open arms and a heart of love,.
