4-Week Study Of Pauline Epistles Begins At Brainerd United Methodist

Thursday, January 30, 2014

Dr. Dennis Flaugher will begin a four-week Bible study on Wednesday, at Brainerd United Methodist Church, 4315 Brainerd Road, on the New Testament prison epistles of the Apostle Paul, the letters of Galatians, Ephesians, Philippians, Colossians and Philemon while he was in prison facing death. 

These letters reflect Paul's passion for the church and its ability to merge theology and application in a way that makes life work. Each week we will look at a different one of these epistles, focusing our discussion on what it says and what it means to live out a Christian life in today's world.

Study sessions are held  in the library each Wednesday at 6 p.m. The study will be based on N.T Wright's book, "Paul For Everyone: the Prison Letters."

Dr.Flaugher will speak Sunday at the 9 and 10:45 a.m. services in the sanctuary. His topic will be "God's SAT," with text from Micah 8.
