I’m Excited!

 

Man Jumping for Joy

 

We’re gonna have Bible study Tuesday at 7:30 P.M. Join us in room 240 of the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center as we open our hearts, our minds, and our Bibles. We can hardly wait to see you there!

Going Old School

 

Old School

The Abingdon Bible Study Group is going old school for the next couple of weeks. Though the facilities are state of the art, high-tech, and comfortable, the lessons will be a dig into the past. We will be rediscovering the teachings of the early church. We will take a look back at the doctrine and practices of the New Testament church and see how we compare. It will be enlightening and refreshing to see that we can experience what the early church did.

You won’t need to come early to stoke the fire (though we hope to do that within each of our hearts), it will be warm inside the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center. You won’t have to walk 2 miles in snow that’s two feet deep with shoes that have cardboard stuffed in the soles (you can give us a call & we’ll arrange a ride for you).

It’s going to be exciting! While you don’t have to come early to warm the building, you’re welcome to slip in a few minutes early and enjoy the warmth of friendly fellowship. We will have some light refreshments to offer you before the session starts. Make plans now to join us!

By the way…… We will probably be going “old school” for more than a couple of weeks.

“Thus saith the Lord, Stand ye in the ways, and see, and ask for the old paths, where is the good way, and walk therein, and ye shall find rest for your souls.” – Jeremiah 6:16

Room Change

Room 240 SWVHECWe will be enjoying Bible study in a new room Tuesday night. Room 240 is where you can join us at 7:30 P.M. The design of this room should be well suited for Bible study. It is a tiered, u-shaped room which should work great.Though it is on the second floor, it will be on the same end of the building that we are accustomed to. There is also an elevator near the center of the building if you should need it.

Please bring your notes from last week. If this is your first time to join us we will have a handout with notes for you to follow along. We look forward to seeing you tomorrow night!

(Bring Your Own Coffee)

Don’t let the cold temperatures cause you to stay inside and get cabin fever. We welcome you to join us in a warm environment amongst warm fellowship enjoy the Word of God together. We will meet tonight in room #149 of the Southwest Virginia Higher Education Center beginning at 7:30 P.M.Coffee and Jesus

The location is close to the interstate, the parking is plenteous and in close proximity to the room, the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting, and the presence of God is evident. We will save you a seat!

And…. yes, you can bring coffee or hot chocolate if you want!

Koinonia

It’s a strange sounding word, but it’s what is happening on Tuesday nights in Abingdon. If you’ve never experienced koinonia you are missing out. It is translated “fellowship” in Acts 2:42 “And they continued stedfastly in the apostles’ doctrine and fellowship, and in breaking of bread, and in prayers.” The word means community, joint participation, association, and fellowship.

While there are many groups and associations one can be a part of, there’s nothing quite like the union we share in Christ as His body. It fulfills a need that we have innate within us as human beings. We were created for community and more importantly; communion in Christ.

Though it has been some days now since our last Tuesday night Bible study, I can still recollect what a wonderful experience it was! There was an awesome presence of God with us and the effects of that evening have been lasting.

We invite you to join us on Tuesday and experience this unique fellowship for yourself. You will find a group of people that will make you feel at ease as we examine the Scriptures together. Please join us. We will be looking for you!
