Few things open up the Bible better than good, old-fashioned brain grease. I highly recommend serious study of the history of Biblical times, as well as training in the two primary languages of the Bible: Hebrew and Greek. It’ll get you thinking in wonderful new ways.
Here’s a quick example: The Greek word for worship is proskuneo, which is a fun term with which to play. Proskuneo, like many Greek words, is a compound word.

Funds raised by our 2013 Harvest Bowl were presented to three area food cupboards today. Deacon Claude Lester received on behalf of The Blessing Room in Bloomfield, Don Fox received on behalf of Community Food Pantry of Honeoye, and our own Pastor Corey received on behalf of FISH Food Cupboard in Honeoye Falls.
As Theresa Keyes emphasized in the presentation (you can hear the audio by clicking below), this program has the potential to feed SO MANY people. We encourage you to get to know more about Harvest Bowl, and about the amazing food pantry programs operating in our own back yards. Lean more by contacting us today. Thanks!
