Want to Go Deeper?

If you want to go deeper, I hope you will join me for our Bible Conference on Sunday afternoon, February 9, at 4:00 p.m.

Who is our speaker?  Dr. Tom Schreiner is a professor of New Testament and Biblical Theology at my alma mater, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville, Kentucky.

Dr. Schreiner is a prolific author.  His works include the volume on 1, 2 Peter & Jude in the New American Commentary series.  He is also a devoted churchman, serving as an elder at Clifton Baptist Church, in Louisville.

Dr. Schreiner and his wife, Diane, have four children and nine grandchildren.

What’s the topic?  We will study the New Testament book of 1 Peter together.

As Dr. Schreiner writes in his commentary:  “The purpose of the letter is to encourage believers to stand fast while they endure suffering and distress in the present evil age. . . . They are encouraged to persevere, knowing that a great reward will be theirs on the day of salvation” (1,2 Peter, Jude, New American Commentary, vol. 37, p. 45).

When and where?  The conference is from 4:00 – 7:00 p.m. (snacks at break times provided) on Sunday afternoon, February 9, in our Multi-Purpose Gym.

How do I sign up?  It will help us prepare if you will register online here.  But, walk-ups are also welcome on Sunday afternoon.  The cost recovery registration fee is $5 per person.  Childcare is provided by reservation only at $5 per child.

Want a bonus session?  On Saturday, February 8, from 11:30 –1:30 p.m. we will have a free “Lunch and Learn” session with Dr. Schreiner, designed especially for leaders.  Make your reservation for lunch online here.

Your Pastor and Friend,
