Primetimers Ministries

PrimeTimers Sunday Class @ 9:20am in W129/130. The Life of Joseph: From Pit ... to Prison ... to Palace with Pastor Rick Moe.

The Life of Joseph: From Pit... to Prison... to Palace. Joseph was raised in a dysfunctional family, betrayed by his brothers, unfairly accused, and yet Joseph turned out well-balanced, capable, and very successful. How? What did Joseph learn about God and life that allowed him to overcome his background and rise to become "lord of all Egypt" (Genesis 45:9)? Beginning with his birth, we will follow Joseph as he grows up, is thrown into a pit, sent to prison, promoted to the palace, and tests his brothers. One of the great men of God in the Bible, Joseph has many lessons to teach us. Taught by Pastor Rick Moe. This series began on April 26th, and meets on Sundays at 9:20am in room W129/130 for refreshments, singing hymns, and wonderful lessons from God's Word. Come join us.
Visit our Senior Adults webpage at: http://www.goldenhills.org/connect/senior-adults for more info. Trips: We invite anyone and everyone to join us on our trips-whether a PrimeTimer or not. Bring your kids, grandkids, great grandkids, and your friends. As long as they can handle the walking involved, we'd love to have them. Socials: Because of space considerations at our socials, we prefer for those who attend to be "close" to the PrimeTimers ages of 60+. We say "close," because several people in the class are not a PrimeTimers age (yet), so if you're in the ballpark, join us.

Adult Education And Enrichment

NEW Classes:
6 O.T. Judges begins TODAY, Sun, 8/2 @ 9:20am in W248.

6 O.T. Judges: Decisions Matter: Ted Grant will help us take a look at six of the judges in the Old Testament book of Judges: Othniel, Ehud, Shamgar, Deborah, Gideon, and Samson. Each of these judges made decisions which affected not only their own lives, but the lives of the people in Israel. Because of sin in the nation of Israel, God allowed repeated cycles of sin, servitude, supplication, and salvation. God used these six judges to bring deliverance to the nation, and also to teach Israel to live in obedience to God. Both the nation, and her judges, made decisions that had consequences--for good and evil. This course will help you learn about how God is able to use wise and not-so-wise decisions you make in your life.

Matthew begins Sun, 8/9 @ 10:55am in W241.

Don Knapp will help us take a look during the next 18 weeks at Jesus, who is the most important person in history. His life is the most important life ever lived, and His death the one death in history that has ramifications for all eternity. His life and death were prophesied in the Old Testament, and when the time was right, God fulfilled His promise to send the Messiah. This class will teach you about the life of Jesus, and how to avoid the pitfalls which Jesus warned us about. We will also learn how to live in tough times, and how this era of human history will end. Maybe most importantly, we will better understand why Jesus Christ is God's promised fulfillment of true peace and deliverance for everyone who believes in Him.

Revelation Begins THIS Tues, 8/4 @ 7pm in W246/247 (limited space).

Pastor Dave Parsons will be teaching a 20-week study through the book of Revelation. For many, Revelation is a book that is very mysterious and hard to understand. Pastor Dave will provide a basic framework to understand the book and seek to relate some of the passages to current events in the world. He will go section by section through Revelation, explaining how the book fits together and the basic meaning of each of the passages. Either register online or by calling x7101 if you would like to join this study. Space is VERY limited.

Register online, or call x7101.
