SUNDAY MORNING ADULT BIBLE STUDY - 10:45 a.m.

What is suffering? We see it. We experience it. But do we understand it? Do we know why it’s happening especially in lives of God’s people? St. Peter in his First Epistle says: “Beloved, do not be surprised at the fiery trial when it comes upon you to test you, as though something strange were happening to you. But rejoice insofar as you share Christ's sufferings, that you may also rejoice and be glad when his glory is revealed.” (1 Peter 4:12-13) What kind of God allows suffering in the lives of His saints? Does God really expect us to rejoice in our sufferings? How do we understand suffering in the life of a Christian and how can we explain it to others? If you have suffered, know someone else who has suffered, or have questions about suffering, grab a cup of coffee after church and come join us as we dig into God’s Word in search of His truth on this very timely topic.
