Do you wish you understood better when Jesus or Paul refer to things from the Hebrew Scriptures?

Running from the Sunday after Easter to Pentecost, “Tell Me the Old, Old Story: The Bible Before Jesus” will explore the main story from Creation to the return from exile when the Jews waited with longing for the Messiah. Each week, this Adult Christian Education study will take one major period, highlighting key characters and events that make it memorable.

Taught by the Reverend Dr. Gary Neal Hansen, the class will be hybrid, meeting on Sundays at 9:45 a.m. in the Hulme Room and via Zoom. A video recording of each class is available for review. Please contact Kaysie Strickland in the church office (email: for information about how to access these recordings.
