February 2017 Series
Special Teaching: Numbers in the Bible (2/1)
Are they there for a reason? This special presentation will discuss the transcendent numerical design of Scripture as proof of Divine Authorship. Guest teacher Mark Visser will discuss the symbolic, mystical and structural use of numbers in Scripture.
Rethinking Your Favorite Bible Verses (2/8-2/22)
Have you ever heard a Bible verse and scratched your head thinking, “Well that doesn’t make sense to me”? Sometimes Scripture is misunderstood, misquoted, or taken out of context. In this three-week series led by the pastors, we will examine some of the most commonly misunderstood Bible verses, and seek to put them in context with the rest of Scripture.
Lenten Season at Stanwich
Each year at Stanwich, we conduct a church-wide weekly Bible study during the season of Lent, which begins on Ash Wednesday (March 1) and leads to Holy Week. All participating Small Groups will study the same material each week. This year, we are taking a departure from video-based curricula and will be studying Scripture using a contemplative and interactive approach. People who are unable to join a Small Group may receive a brochure that includes the Scriptures along with some questions to guide them through it.
Lenten Series 2017
Clothes are part of our daily lives. For some people they are simply a functional reality of life. However, for most of us, at least subconsciously, the way we dress is an expression of our performed identity.
Consider some of the things we say: "he dresses for success," "she always makes a fashion statement," "he is wearing a power tie," "she was dressed to the nines." And one is a fraud when "he is caught with his pants down." Maybe this is what caused Mark Twain to say "clothes make the man. Naked people have little or no influence on society."
Over 20 idioms in the English language relate to clothing. We certainly do not want to "be a stuffed shirt," "get hot under the collar" or "wear our feelings on our sleeves." Robes and clothing carry spiritual meaning in the Scriptures. This series will explore significant robes found throughout the Bible. In the end, our goal is to put on Christ so as to be robed in the glory of God.
