Escalon First Baptist Hosting Bible Walk-Through

A five-session Bible “walk-through” covering both the entire old and new Testaments, from Genesis through Revelation, will be offered at Escalon First Baptist Church from 6 p.m. to 7:15 p.m. on the five Sundays of October, beginning Oct. 1.

Escalon First Baptist Church is at 1511 Catherine Way.

This informative, fun, interactive style Bible study will allow each participant to have a clear understanding of the flow of the entire Bible, how it is arranged, what happens where, its central message, and how to read, study, and understand the scriptures for the rest of one’s life – all in five short sessions. These Bible studies will use humor and association to help participants remember the stories, the geography, the history, and the message of the Bible.

“The Bible in 5 Hours” class requires no previous Bible knowledge. In fact, according to Pastor Dale Pederson, “for this Bible study, the less you know about the Bible the better!”

Nursery and child-care will be provided for infants and children. Everyone middle school age and up is invited to attend the study.

“This is our gift to the community. There is no cost to participants and no offerings or donations will be solicited or accepted,” said Pastor Pederson. “This is not a study in church doctrine and there will be no mention of churches, denominations, or pastors. The only focus will be on grasping the flow and message of the Bible.”
