ACE Mission Statement:  To oversee the development, promotion, coordination and execution of Christian Education
programs for the adults of First Presbyterian Church. In order to strengthen personal relationships between individuals and
God, each individual must first obtain a fuller understanding of the nature of God and of God’s will.  To accomplish this task,
teaching must accommodate itself to the needs and abilities of those being taught.  Such teaching emphasizes God’s
revelation through Jesus, but includes many other sources as well, since the Holy Spirit’s efforts to reach humanity are
unbounded.

Bible Basics - Wednesdays, 6:15 pm

This class is designed for those wanting to revisit many of our favorite childhood Sunday school stories or even hear about
them for the first time.  All are welcome.  

Wednesday, July 18, 6:15 PM – Moses and the Law

Has your schedule given you a bit more flexibility for the summer?  Maybe now is a good time to check out Bible Basics.  All
are welcome.  We have been reading stories about Moses recently.  For our discussion on July 18, please read Chapters 20,
24, 32-34, and 40 in Exodus.   Moses receives the 10 Commandments and more, but the Israelites build a golden idol and
Moses has to plead to God on their behalf!  For more information, please contact Mark Jones (mkjones@mchsi.com, 563-332-
9314) or Julie Grothusen (mjgrothusen@hotmail.com, 563-359-6607).


Wednesday, July 25, 6:15 PM – The Council Debate about the Gentiles

Has your schedule given you a bit more flexibility for the summer?  Maybe now is a good time to check out Bible Basics.  All
are welcome.  In the early church, a conflict arose about whether Gentiles needed to follow Mosaic Law to be saved.  The
debate came to a head in front of the apostles and elders in Jerusalem with Peter and Paul taking part.  Read Acts chapter 10,
chapter 11:1-18, and chapter 15:1-35.  For more information, please contact Mark Jones (mkjones@mchsi.com, 563-332-
9314) or Julie Grothusen (mjgrothusen@hotmail.com, 563-359-6607).
