|Bible School Beginnings
September 19, we opened our doors welcoming 131 Bible School students
to the community of Capernwray Harbour for a year of focused &
intensive Bible training. This merging of students from
throughout North America, Europe & Asia has brought together a
diversity of cultures, customs and life experiences; a body of
believers intent on discovering the person & character of the Lord
Jesus and the transforming power of His Indwelling Resurrection Life.
In these early weeks of Bible School, students have been studying &
growing, both inside and outside of the Lecture Hall.
Classroom teaching has included, first of all a Bible overview: 'Christ through the Scriptures'; exciting journies through the books
of Acts, Genesis, I Corinthians besides an introductory study of the Character of God.
God's outdoor classroom has also
been utilized well with students participating in the Ventures Programme.
weekend trips expose students to God who created the magnificent beauty
and grandeur to enjoy. They hiked in His rainforest and mountains; sailed &
surfed His waters; besides some other thrilling experiences such as
bungy jumping and caving in
this unique Canadian West Coast.
Meeting in home groups, Friday night campfires, a floor hockey
tournament, working together on book reports and journal
assignments are just a few of the venues that have allowed students to
begin building Christ-centered friendships. We are excited to see
how the Holy Spirit will continue to work in the hearts of those whom we have the privilege of
training and caring for during these next 8 months!
