Sunday Electives.jpg

We want to do everything we can to help you grow as a follower of Jesus! One of the ways that we do this is by creating a variety of excellent opportunities for you to learn more about the Bible and the Christian faith. Every Sunday morning we have two morning service times - 915am and 1100am. During both of these service times we have groups [we call them electives] that you can attend and grow! We encourage you to attend one service and one elective every week that you are able. For more information contact Pastor Jon at jon.dixon@nmbc.ca

The Greenhouse - Launching again on January 14. The Greenhouse is for those who are new to Church and Christianity or for those who want to renew their understanding of what it means to be a follower of Jesus. Contact Tammy Bast bast.tammy@gmail.com

The Whole Story of the Bible - To help you launch into our 2018 Bible Reading Challenge, Danny Zacharias will offer a session on January 7 during both services. This session will offer you a bird’s eye view to the structure of the Bible, which will help you to understand how each book fits into the grand scheme of God’s story. Contact Danny at danny.zacharias@acadiau.ca

The Bible in Your Hands - 66 books. 40+ authors. Written over a period of 1,500 years. God’s Word to us comes from different people in different circumstances and through different types of literature. How do we today, far removed from the events and the authors, approach the Bible and understand the Bible that we hold in our hands? Join Wade White for an 8-week elective on Interpreting the Bible, beginning January 14 during service 1. Learn about the different types of literature in the Bible and how to properly read them, understand why we have different English translations, and be introduced to some Bible study tools.  Contact Wade at wade.white@bellaliant.net

Book Club: Epic of Eden - Join Danny Zacharias in a discussion group that will help you grow in your understanding of and love for the Old Testament! The group will read the book Epic of Eden [Kindle]. This book "gives an overview of the Old Testament, organizing our disorderly knowledge of the Old Testament people, facts and stories into a memorable and manageable story of redemption that climaxes in the New Testament." [Amazon.ca] The group will meet during service 2 for 8 weeks beginning on January 14. Contact Danny at danny.zacharias@acadiau.ca

Making Life Disciples - "Life decisions need life support," and the church is God's instrument to provide life support to women, men, and families to empower them to choose life for their unborn children and abundant life for their families. This 12 week elective will equip you to lead with credibility and love - offering compassion, hope, help, and discipleship to women and men facing pregnancy decisions. Launching on January 14 and meeting during service 1,  facilitated by Sandra Brown [sandra.arkell.brown@gmail.com]. You can learn more here: https://www.care-net.org/why-making-life-disciples
