Gathering for Prayer and Bible Study

“And pray in the Spirit on all occasions with all kinds of prayers and requests.  With this in mind, be alert and always keep on praying for all the Lord’s people (Eph. 6:18).”  Join Pastor Mike and others in the church family every Wednesday night from 7 to 7:45PM as we pray for the needs of the church and her neighbors and from 7:45 to 8:30PM as we take a “second look” at Sunday’s message and its impact on our lives.  If you have a need you would like lifted by God’s people, fill out a prayer card and place it in the box in the church foyer any Sunday morning, call the church offices at (617) 825-7832 or e-mail the pastor at calbapt@msn.com.

 

Take Time for Christian Education

Join us for Christian Education for all ages every Sunday morning at 9:30.  This year’s CE theme is ‘G.O.D. Squad: NOT MY JOB’.  The Bible metions or describes a number of trades and occupations, and we can learn from the variety of tasks God’s people are engaged in completing.  We will be exploring these jobs at monthly gatherings to think about why God would call us by a particular name and any ramifications from a name.  All are welcome to our age-specific classes:

Children: Bible-in-Life lessons are sound, easy-to-teach and are designed to impact every student that is entrusted to your care – from the littlest ones to the most mature!  The Elementary class meets in the “Red Carpet Room” on the church’s lower level.

Teens: Encounter:  a Bible-based, culturally relevant, and personally challenging teen Sunday school curriculum for jr. high and high school.  ENCOUNTER™ brings teens the message of the Bible and relates spiritual truths to the world around them.  The teens meet in the Conference Room.

Adults: Journey through the storyline of Scripture.  The Gospel Project® for Adults takes men and women on a chronological, Christ-centered journey through the storyline of Scripture.  The adults meet in the Parlor.

 

New Men’s Bible Study

Join brothers in Christ as we discuss 2 Timothy: Faithful to the End by Mark Mulryne.  According to the study’s publisher: “The church is only one generation from extinction.  The societies of our world stand in opposition to Jesus Christ, while false teachers seem to run rampant through churches, destroying faith and denying God's power.  In this deeply personal letter to his spiritual ‘heir’, we have the last written words of the man who had labored so long and hard, against such odds, to build Christ's church.  Stand in Timothy's shoes, as you work through these seven studies.  Listen to the testimony, the encouragements and the commands of the apostle Paul – and get yourself thoroughly equipped for every good work.  You too can fight the good fight, finish the race and receive the reward given to those who are faithful to the end.”  The Men’s Bible Study meets in the church parlor on Tuesday, October 3rd, 17th and 31st from 7 to 8:30PM.

 

New Women’s Bible Study

Curiosity is hardwired in humanity. We have this innate need to question and seek after what we don’t know or understand.  In this 6-session study, delve into Scripture to explore how God created us to seek after Him – a God who desires to be found and known. In this lifelong quest of faith, learn to develop your intimacy with Him and embrace the adventure that comes with living a life for God.  This study meets every Thursday morning from 10 to noon.  Childcare for preschoolers is available.  If you are interested in growing in faith and biblical knowledge through this study, or if you have any questions about it, please contact Jeanine Ferrini, the study’s facilitator, via email at jeanineandmike@comcast.net.
