“A Walk Through the Bible is conducted by a national organization and takes participants through the Old Testament in an interesting way using learning techniques that allow participants to remember facts and stories,” Ward said. “We read the Bible and study the Bible but often forget the details and facts of the stories. This seminar will help us to remember the people, places and events and make the Bible come even more alive to us.”

The seminar is for all ages beginning with kindergarten age.

“We will be divided into two groups, kindergarten through fifth grade and sixth grade and up,” Ward said. “The thought is that young people sixth grade and up will not be interested in the activities planned for the younger children.”

Ward said the seminar is conducted in such a way that both young people and adults will enjoy and benefit from being in the seminar together.

There is a fee of $20 for adults and $10 for children for the “Walk Through the Bible” seminar. However, there is a cap on the fee of $50. No family will pay more than $50 regardless of the number of members.

Those who pre-register for the seminar will be served lunch. Those who do not will have lunch on their own. To pre-register for the seminar, call 566-4141 by noon on Friday. Walkup registrations will be accepted on the day of the seminar.

Ward said if participation in the Old Testament seminar is good, plans are to offer a seminar on the New Testament in the near future.
