Paul writing to the Ephesians

Earlier in June, 2020, our faithful teacher, Dr. Jeff Stivason fell and suffered a concussion. He has not fully recovered yet he persevered to continued the teaching in this series. Now at his doctors recommendation and our encouragement Jeff is taking some time off to heal. By God’s grace He has provided a way for us to continue with our weekly Bible study. And with our founder and leader, Dr. Bruce Bickel. How about that??? Here is the link to our new series, “Fearing God” for us to further our Biblical education while Jeff recovers. So please join us in this new series which starts on Tuesday, July 28th at Noon via Zoom. Check out all the details in our weekly newsletter as well as in the introduction to our new series.

On Friday, February 14th we began a new series covering the Letter to the Ephesians, entitled, “The Family of God.” Dr. Jeff Stivason will lead us through the six chapters of Paul’s letter which will cover Spiritual Blessings in Christ, Thanksgiving & Prayer, By Grace Through Faith, One in Christ, The Mystery of the Gospel Revealed, Prayer for Spiritual Strength, Unity in the Body of Christ, the New Life, Walk in Love, Wives & Husbands, Children & Parents, and The Whole Armor of God. Read this epistle to be prepared for a deep dive into God’s mighty word of grace.

Here is a link to our previous class as Jeff walked us through the Old Testament. You can also utilize our Bible Study Resource as you study Ephesians and other parts of the Bible.

Please join us each Friday as we survey God’s powerful word in capturing his majesty and wonder. All lessons are taught by Rev. Jeff Stivason, Ph.D. unless indicated otherwise. Our Bible Study is held every Friday at 6:30am at the Barn located on the campus of Christ Church at Grove Farm in Sewickley, PA. Here is a link to our About Page with directions so you can find us and background on the Brave Men’s Bible Study, as we now enter our 25th year of study and fellowship.
