Isaiah (chapters 40 to 66)

January 8 – June 25, 2023
Sunday morning, 9:00 – 10:15 a.m.
Fellowship Hall
Taught by Keith Howland

It has been called “The Gospel in the Old Testament”: Isaiah 40 to 66 reveals the coming of the Messiah to die on the cross for sin, to be raised to life, and to return again to usher in God’s everlasting kingdom. Isaiah predicted these things and more with amazing detail and accuracy.

Join us for this inductive study of this early Gospel written seven centuries before Jesus’ birth. “But he was pierced for our transgressions, he was crushed for our iniquities; the punishment that brought us peace was on him, and by his wounds we are healed. We all, like sheep, have gone astray, each of us has turned to our own way; and the LORD has laid on him the iniquity of us all”
(Isaiah 53:5–6).

Center for Biblical Transformation

Winter Semester
January 10–March 28, 2023

Enrich your knowledge of God and his Word! The Center for Biblical Transformation offers college-level courses designed to deepen your understanding of the Bible and Christian theology, help you be transformed into the image of Jesus Christ and prepare you to serve in his kingdom.

The purpose of the program is to experience God’s truths personally and to share the message through your life to others. This is your opportunity to discover that living with Jesus involves learning his transforming truths and passing them on to others!  I invite you to prayerfully consider your involvement in the Center for Biblical Transformation.

SIGN UP FOR CBT

One of the most heartbreaking and challenging experiences Christian parents can face is to see their adult child or children reject the values of their parents; and turn their back on the faith they once embraced. One of our members had this experience and started the Prodigal Prayer meeting for like-minded parents to meet and pray regularly for our prodigals.
We meet on the second and fourth Thursdays each month, at 7 pm. We meet in the Resource Room at Chelten on the second Thursday, and on Zoom, on the fourth Thursday.
Please come and join us!
