This week in Sunday School we will be starting a new series teaching through our church confession, the 1689 Baptist Confession of Faith. This is a series that Pastor Shawn and I have been desiring to start for some time and are excited to finally begin!
We will not being trying to teach through the entire confession in a single go. To do that and give justice to the entire document would take years. Our approach will be to take small sections, a chapter or part of a chapter, and teach through these sections for a few weeks. We will then alternate back and forth with the other regular teaching topics that make up our usual Sunday School curriculum.
Our hope is to slowly, as a church, become more familiar with the riches and insights of our Confession of Faith. We will seek to grow in our knowledge of the truths of scripture so plainly laid out in the Confession and gain a more firm grounding for our faith.
We will be trying to continue our recent practice of recording the Sunday School so that those who are unable to attend every meeting will be able to follow and learn along as we embark on this exciting endeavor. See you all Sunday!
