Community Bible Study (CBS) is on a mission is to make disciples of Jesus Christ through caring, in-depth Bible study. Study groups meet from September to May on Thursdays at 10am-Noon.
What I like best about CBS is that my son and I have the same chapter and verses for homework, and have our study groups at the same time. This is so convenient.
In order to get a deeper understanding of God’s word we use the the following resources:
- blueletterbible.org – an online Bible with multiple versions. When the scripture is NOT easy to understand, we can usually understand it by reading several versions of the same verse.
- www.merriam-webster.com – an extensive online dictionary.
- www.howjsay.com – Howjsay is a wonderful tech tool for a struggling reader. It teaches how to pronounce words correctly.
- http://inogolo.com/pronunciation/d360/Friedrich_Nietzsche – a pronunciation guide for nouns.
- http://www.cbsclass.org/Classes/hemet/Lessons.aspx – Scroll down to LESSONS to hear past lectures.
It is so much fun to do an in-depth study of God’s word alongside my child. In 2009-10, we participated in our first CBS. My son was age 9. We studied the book of Revelation. We still talk about Revelation at least every week and marvel at how often Revelation is misquoted.
CBS weekly meetings are all about what we read in the Bible and the opinion the Holy Spirit leads you to. It is NOT about other people’s opinions.
This year’s study will be on the book of Acts. You are welcome to attend the whole series or just a few classes to check this CBS out.
