Pastor Anthony Jenkins, Sr., who is the current Pastor of Taylor Memorial United Methodist Church, is much more involved with his congregation than simply preaching the Sunday morning sermon. One of the things he enjoys doing is holding his Pastor’s Bible Study once a week. He really likes to get into the material, too. This isn’t a basic Bible Study 101. It’s not a Cliff’s Notes experience. He does not gloss over anything. When you study with Pastor Anthony, you are really going to get into the meat of the material.
Pastor Anthony Jenkins, Sr. delves so deeply that he has been in the book of Romans since he started at Taylor Church in 2015. It’s a slow process, he says. If you really don’t want to leave any stone unturned in your Bible study experience, this is the group for you.
The sixth book of the New Testament is an interesting one for study, mainly because the Apostle Paul is outlining the gospel in a letter to the Romans. He’s essentially performing marketing outreach for the Word of God, explaining to the Romans in authority at the time what it takes to achieve salvation. This is a very important epistle, or letter.
Thus, studying the official, canon outline of the gospel with a man who has dedicated his life to the subject, and who lives it every second of every day as an example to us, is a treat that we welcome you to take advantage of. This is an incredible opportunity for learning and for being inspired in your own spiritual journey.
It is also a time for fellowship, because you’re going to get a whole lot more out of this experience than intellectual or even spiritual learning. You are going to get emotional support. You are going to get the opportunity to be in the room with some very amazing people. People who are making things happen in their community for the glory of God, and for the love of His children. When you participate in the Taylor Church Pastor’s Bible Study sessions, you are going to experience the warmth of God’s love. It is a wonderful time of sharing and growth, that will enable you to be a vessel of God’s love. And love is what it’s all about.
That’s what Paul was explaining to the Romans in his eloquently penned epistle. He was explaining to these men – men who were accustomed to handling the machinations of the physical world – the workings of another world that touches us and that we touch. God’s world. God’s vision for humanity. He told them how to exist in the world, to appreciate and use the world and all its amazing benefits, yet not be of that world, with all of its temptations and potential ugliness. He taught them how to rise above what they could see, taste, touch, hear and smell, and get into the realm of the heart and the soul, which is where God wants His people to dwell.
Please come and be a part of this beautiful experience. You are invited to come and study with Pastor Anthony each Wednesday afternoon from 1:00 p.m. to 2:00 p.m. in the conference room next to his office.
