The Wired World – Sundays Room 206
The best way to introduce this study is with a phrase common to TV police/ detective shows like Law & Order—”Ripped from the Headlines?” Cue the dramatic music. This study is based on current events from national and world news. The weekly lessons begin with an excerpt from current news and dives into discussion developed through a series of questions and several relevant Scripture readings. Each week participants are guided in approaching a challenging or disturbing news story and to consider how to think and talk about these events from the perspective of our Christian faith. Come check out this class for stimulating, challenging discussions that will keep you thinking all week long.
Paul’s Letters – Sundays Room 202
This year we will be exploring Paul’s letters in chronological order. We will be starting with the letters to the Thessalonians followed by Galatians. Come, discuss and get an in-depth look at the communities and the message of Paul to these early Christians and be challenged as we discuss how to apply these messages to modern life.
Every Day Faith – Sundays Room 203
This class will rotate through a variety of “mini-series.”
In the past we have looked at the life and teachings of Dietrich Bonhoeffer on how he not only helped transform an entire faith community in Germany during WWII, but how his beliefs continue to impact the Christian faith of people throughout the world today. Join us for discussion on why these spiritual truths meant so much to Bonhoeffer and how they can be an inspiration and challenge to our faith.
Most Recent we will look at ‘What Every Christian Needs to know about The Jewishness of Jesus’. A new way of seeing the most influential Rabbi in History. By Rabbi evan Moffic. This interactive 4 week series will be led by Alex Joncas.
