Early Risers Lesson Index


Welcome! This page contains the Bible Study Lessons for the Oaks Early Risers Class conducted at The Oaks Baptist Church. As each new lesson is added on this site, it is dated (by lesson date in descending order) so you can easily track what's new since your last visit!

NOTE: Normally the titles that have the color yellow are "links" to information. All other words are just descriptions.

These lessons use an Acrobat format. To access, click on the desired lesson title. Note however, you may need to download the FREE Adobe Acrobat Reader.

To see the Lesson Scriptures online, use the Web lookup using Bible Gateway services. Just click on the Scripture Passage beside the Lesson desired. This will provide a foundation of what the lesson will contain.

There is also a link to an additional Commentary, usually on the lesson's Scriptural passage by another author. I have selected these links, but do not necessarily endorse or agree with "everything" written or expressed. Please "test the spirits to see whether they are from God" (1 John 4:1) and please be like the Bereans (Acts 17:10-11) on this as well as MY LESSON.
