Weekly- 9:45 AM - Sunday School/Bible Study
This quarter we will be studying Genesis 25-50. The story of Abraham's descendants, including Jacob and his sons, unfold. Sin, brokeness, and jealousy are present in full, making the necessity for transformation clear.
EXPLORE THE BIBLE
In the midst of all this brokeness, we will see that God used imperfect people with imperfect lives to advance His perfect plans.
Christ came into the world to make transformation and redemption available to all who repent and believe. We will also see why God's work of transformation and redemption means every life is scared. May God teach you why the gospel is such good news!
Dr. Chuck Kelley is president of New Orleans Baptist Theological Seminary.

Welcome to our website. My name is David Parker, and I am the pastor of Pine Chapel Baptist Church. It is our hope that as you examine our website that you will begin to know our church and the wonderful people who are serving the Lord here!
One of the strengths I think you will find at Pine Chapel is our love for studying the Word of God. Sadly, many churches today in our culture do not put an emphasis on Bible study, but this is not the case here at Pine Chapel. I'm proud to say that we study the Bible here!
On Sunday evenings starting at 6pm, we regularly begin with a time of prayer, followed by singing a few hymns of praise. We then engage in a Bible Study lasting about 40 minutes (we finish up about 7pm). We meet in the fellowship hall in a relaxed atmosphere. All you need is your Bible. You can enjoy coffee and snacks during the study. I use humor, and believe that studying the Bible should be fun as well as educational. You can feel comfortable here. You're among friends!
Over the last few years we have studied a wide variety of biblical topics. We've studied who God is, and what He is like (His nature, the Trinity, etc.). We've also learned about Angels: who they are and what they do for us. We've learned about the End Times, and what the word of God has to say about it. We also occasionally study the lives of famous bibical individuals, to see what we can learn from them, such as Moses.
We serve a wonderful Tri-une God. Father. Son. Holy Spirit. The Three who are One and the One who exists as Three. The Father loves us and calls us into relationship. Jesus Himself said this: "No man can come to Me unless the Father draws Him." Jesus shed His perfect blood for a lost humanity, for Scripture clearly teaches us, "Without the shedding of blod there is no forgiveness for sin." His sacrifice makes our salvation possible. And the Holy Spirit indwells us,seals us and protects us after we invite Jesus into our lives.
It is my hope - and our hope here at Pine Chapel Baptist Church - that you will want to come and worship our wonderful God with us. Get to know Him. Get to know us. Let us serve Him together.
God bless you,
Rev. David Parker
