An Introduction to 1 Corinthians – 6/9/19 Bible Class

Teacher: Justin P. Sivley
As we prepare to embark on a study of 1 Corinthians during our Sunday evening services, we took the time in our Sunday morning Bible Class to look at an introduction to the letter, trying to better understand the history and culture of the city that Paul visited in Acts 18 and later wrote a letter to.  Understanding those matters can help us to understand the issues that Paul addressed within the letter.

Roles in the Church: Deacons – 5/19/19 Bible Class

Teacher: Matt Burleson
As we continue studying matters of leadership within the church, we shift our focus to deacons.  In this lesson, we consider both the qualifications and work of deacons.  Near the end of this lesson, a comment is made about a “deaconess,” but no time was given for discussion on this matter.  Please understand that the Orangeburg Church of Christ respects and adheres to the Bible’s teachings that women are not permitted to serve in any role of authority over a man, and that one who serves as a deacon must be a man, per the qualification of 1 TImothy 3.
