“INTRO TO THE BIBLE ONLINE”
Savannah Presbytery is excited to provide an ONLINE experience of our keystone School of the Laity course, “Intro to the Bible,” taught by Dr. Bob Bryant. We invite all to join us on this re-imagined opportunity to partake in the School of the Laity. Gone is the “drive” to Epworth by the Sea! Gone is the cost of the hotel and meals!
Instead, stimulate your mind, fortify your soul and build relationships with other Presbyterians- all from the safety of your own homes!
There are no pre-requisites to taking this class—we welcome first-time learners, School of the Laity graduates seeking a refresher course, folks considering a pathway to being a Commissioned Ruling Elder (CRE), and even pastors who may want to experience Dr. Bryant’s instruction.
WHAT: The “Intro to the Bible Online” Course *
If you have ever questioned parts of the Bible, why it was written, and what it might have to say to people today, join Dr. Bob Bryant’s class. Dr. Bryant, Professor of Bible at Presbyterian College and favorite SOL faculty member of many years, will explore the Old and New Testaments, providing insight into who wrote them, how they came to be, and how we can better understand what they say to us today. *This course is a critical core class for those interested in the full 2-year School of the Laity program.
WHEN: Our June Session will be offered over a four-week period that will optimize the course instruction and participant preparation with personal group interaction via the Zoom platform. Participants will need access to a laptop, tablet, or smart phone with video and audio capabilities. (Churches may seek to make these tools available to those who do not have access.)
The sessions will be:
Week 1: Friday, June 26 & Saturday June 27
We will kick-off our time together Friday from 7-8:00 PM with introductions, course expectations and Zoom guidelines. We will begin Saturday morning’s session at 10:00 AM. All Saturday sessions will be held 10:00 AM- 12:00 PM and 1:00-2:30 PM with a break for lunch.
Week 2: Saturday, July 11
Week 3: Saturday, July 18
Week 4: Saturday, July 25
HOW: Registration forms are available now and the registration fee is $95. Participants should register ASAP so pre-course work can be communicated and completed.
