SUNDAY SCHOOL!

When:  See Dates Below
Time:  9:30 AM
Given By:  Gethsemane Baptist Church
Address:  5119 4th Street, NW, Washington, DC 20011

THEME:

"Our November lessons will strengthen our faith in a God who keeps His word. Our first lesson foresees the return of God's glory to His temple in Jerusalem. The second lesson describes the altar of sacrifice, a symbol of Israel's hope of restored worship. The third lesson, we learn how the Lord will transform the land in the messianic age through a life-giving stream that will flow from the temple. Next, we are informed that the ancient boundaries of Israel will be re-established for its tribes in the millennium, and our final lesson from Isaiah 52, calls upon Israel to rejoice as Jerusalem, often debased and oppressed, rises to fulfill its glorious destiny under Messiah's rule."

COME TO SUNDAY SCHOOL AND LET'S TALK ABOUT IT!

Sunday, November 02, 2014: God's Glory Returns, Ezekiel 43:1-12
Sunday, November 09, 2014: The Altar, A Sign of Hope, Ezekiel 43:13-21
Sunday, November 16, 2014: A Transforming Stream, Ezekiel 47:1, 3-12
Sunday, November 23, 2014: Transformed Inheritance, Ezekiel 47:13-23
