NMBC electives.002.jpg

NEW ELECTIVE: Six week (Mar 10 - Apr 14) study of the Exodus theme in Scripture with Wade White based on the book Echoes of Eden.

Room: B6 @ 9:15am.

The exodus stands as a pivotal event in the Old Testament. But we also see echoes of this story of redemption all throughout God's Word. The recurring theme of the exodus throughout the entirety of Scripture sheds light on the Bible's unified message of salvation and restoration that is at the heart of God's plan for the world. Join Wade White for a 6-week study on the theme of the Exodus in scripture, March 10 – April 14 during the first service in B6. The book “Echoes of Exodus” is suggested but not required for the elective, with some copies available at the church office.

NMBC electives.001.jpg

NEW ELECTIVE: 7-week (April 21-June 2) study of the Apostle Paul a RightNow Media Study with Danny Zacharias.

Room: B6 @ 9:15am

Apart from Jesus, no one has had a greater influence in Christianity than the apostle Paul. This elective will view a short clip from RightNow Media each week and proceed with a discussion and Bible study. Join Danny Zacharias for a 7-week study on Paul's remarkable life and his voyages from Jerusalem across the Mediterranean world to Rome, where he was ultimately martyred. April 21 – June 2 during the first service in B6.
