The Experience

The Experience Sabbath School is a Bible Study directed towards college students in the area. With a majority of the students living in dorms, it is important that they have a Sabbath School that is ideal where they can be able to discuss the topic of the week with other students their age. With that in mind, The Experience invites you to come and fellowship.

What Love is - Women Only

Focus Room

South Wing

Main Level

This seven week study of 1, 2, & 3 John begins October 31. The Letters of 1, 2 & 3 John were written to encourage followers of Jesus to remain faithful to the truth. Believers are challenged to look at contrasting themes such as walking in the light instead of darkness, truth versus lies and deception, loving God more than loving the world, and the meaning of true fellowship and community rather than shallowness. This study not only reveals the heart of John but also the heart of Jesus. To register go to Collegedale Church Women’s Ministries Facebook page or text/call Geri Burt (828) 691-5206. 

Facilitated by Amy Plahtinsky, amedbo@yahoo.com, and Stephanie Zuk, stephanielzuk@gmail.com.
