JULY 12 2008, 10:00 AM- 12:00 NOON
At this meeting, we be having a reformation Bible study. Each speaker is expected to faithfully exegete 2 Peter 3:9 and explain his exegesis to the group in the allotted time without collaborating with the other speakers. The point of this exercise is not to proclaim our own opinions or debate but to unfold the mind of God from the Scriptures. Since this Bible Study is not meant to be preaching, the speakers must avoid all exhortations and admonishments. After all three speakers finish, those in attendance will question the speakers but not debate or argue. All attendees are expected to study the text before our meeting. Finally, we will arrive at conclusions (application) as a group.
The passage we will consider is The Lord is not slack concerning His promise, as some count slackness, but is longsuffering toward us, not willing that any should perish but that all should come to repentance (2 Pet. 3:9 NKJV).
We are pleased that the following pastors have agreed to lead our Bible study:
Rev. Josh Gelatt Pastor of Indian River Baptist Church
Rev. Gary Nehring Pastor of St. John's Lutheran Church
Rev. Jeff Ryan Pastor of Calvary Bible Church
The meeting will be held at Curran Baptist Church, Curran, Michigan. Curran Baptist Church is located on M-65/M72, and is between East M-72 and West M-72.
Pastors, invite your elders and/or deacons, and your wives are welcome as well.
We look forward to seeing you there.
