SUNDAYS 9:25AM -- SUNDAY BIBLE CLASS
Course: AGENTS OF GRACE: THE PEOPLE IN DAVID'S LIFE AND YOURS Time: 9:25-10:25AM Sundays Location: Chapel Instructor: Pastor Pries Audience: Adults Style: Discussion Description: It's very easy to get caught up in our own routine and interests. Some of those interests can be less than God-pleasing, but we don't always seem to notice or care. Thankfully, God is always working for our good, providing people in our lives to help us remain close to him. In Agents of Grace: The People in David's Life and in Yours we will examine how the Lord used people in David's life to guide and mold him into a true servant of God. It also shows how the Lord does this in our own lives today. David, one of the most revered people in the Old Testament, certainly had his share of flaws. However, God used his agents—the people around David—to influence him and lead David back to the righteous path. God does the same for us; whether it's a family member, friend, coworker, or a stranger on the street, people all around us can be God's agents of grace.
