Pastor’s Bible Study Fall 2020

Thursdays | Begins Sept. 17 | 9:30 AM | FPC Sanctuary & Online at fpcsanantonio.org/pbs

Wednesdays | 7:00 PM | Covenant Hall

Revelation: One Vision…One Lord…One Future

2020 has been a year like no other, leading people to ask, “what is God doing?” In the early days of the church, the first followers of Jesus Christ asked the same question and God answered by giving an incredible vision to the exiled apostle John.

This fall the Pastor’s Bible Study (PBS), led by Rev. Dr. Bob Fuller, will grapple with the book of Revelation. Many people see the last book of the Bible as a futuristic preview of ominous warning. Revelation, however, is a book of hope for Christians of all centuries (not just the end times).

Join Bob on Thursday mornings beginning September 17 at 9:30 AM in the Sanctuary (so we can spread out), or virtually via live stream through the FPC app or fpcsanantonio.org/pbs. There will also be a special Wednesday night edition each week at 7:00 PM in Covenant Hall (no live stream on Wednesdays.)

If you have any questions or to be placed with a group please contact Lellen Lane at lellenlane@aol.com, or call Lellen at (210) 860-1395.

Redeeming the Crisis – Church Spiritual Gifts Survey

fpcsanantonio.org/gifts-survey

One of our first steps in REDEEMING THE CRISIS is to gather information. We are working to inventory our congregation to assess the skills, resources, relationships, connections and spiritual gifts we can bring to bear for the sake of our community. The Spiritual gift survey takes us to the step of personal investment, and will help us to learn how the Lord has designed and gifted each of us to show His mercy in this moment. You will be hearing a lot more about REDEEMING THE CRISIS. The Lord is summoning us to REACH OUT to our city, to REACH IN to one another and to REACH UP to the Lord Jesus Christ in prayer and worship.
