Topic:  “The Pastoral Epistles:  What I and II Timothy & Titus Teach us about Church”

Description:  What happens to faith communities after their initial exciting period of establishment, when ‘all things new’ is the norm?   (Rev. 21:5)  
The Pastoral Epistles (I/II Timothy and Titus) illustrate how one role of church is to bring structure and order to new church communities as well as explain how to live and work together after the initial founding fathers have moved on. 
Rather than addressing the ‘fisherman’ metaphor of the Gospels when Jesus and his disciples convert and teach, or the 'missionary' nature of Paul and his letters to churches, the Pastoral Epistles reveal a new period of shepherding and pastoring in regard to the churches.  Issues such as how one's faith must be strengthened and deepened, how to be alert to seductive influences that would undermine Christian growth, or how we work productively with fellow church members, are addressed.
We will explore how Timothy and Titus understood these shepherding needs and explore their letters in order to have insights into how to continue building our church communities.  And by looking at the historical, political and religious context in our Bible Study, we ground ourselves to further unlock the Scriptures' spiritual messages.
Scholars have long batched these three short letters together for centuries because of their similarities.  In addition, their length allows us to have the time to understand the lessons they teach and provide rich discussion points for seeing how to apply them in our church experience today.
We hope you will join us at the beautiful Cedars Camps for four rich days of learning and growing in your spiritual understanding of the Bible, as well as making new friendships with fellow Bible students.
There is one God and one Mediator who can reconcile God and humanity—the man Christ Jesus.  He gave his life to purchase freedom for everyone.  This is the message God gave to the world at just the right time  (I Tim. 2: 5,6).
