High Places Community Church will be hosting a special “Walk Thru the Bible” event on Sunday, September 7, at the historic Grove Theater at 123 Randolph Road in Oak Ridge.
The event has been booked as the result of a passion, one that stretches back more than 30 years in the heart of High Places’ founding pastor Martin Fischer, who also celebrates a birthday on the same date.
“What I want for my birthday is to host a party where anyone in attendance will be given a chance to experience the same thing I once did in a ‘Walk Thru the Bible’ event,” the Rev. Fischer said in a press release. “Years ago, I came away with a better understanding, appreciation, and even fascination for the way the Bible story unfolds through history. It was life-changing for me.”
This event, which focuses on the Old Testament, offers a unique and highly interactive way to gain better handles on the Bible stories that show how God built a “faith family” with the Hebrew people in the two millennium leading up to the birth of Jesus.
The community is invited to the birthday party and celebration from 1-5:30 p.m. September 7.
“This event is all ages, and students grades 1-5 will have their own special ‘Walk Thru the Bible’ event during the allotted time!” the press release said. “Middle grades are welcome to attend either the children or the adult sessions. Childcare will be provided for those who need it.”
The cost is $20, which includes a participant workbook. An “intro” to the event will be held during High Places morning services at 10:30 a.m.
For questions and/or reservations, call High Places at (865) 425-0501, or email the church at [email protected].
