Our youth, college students, and adults’ classes combine this summer (May, June, and July) for diverse, fun, and informative discussions. Sundays at 9:45 a.m.
TED Talks Faith- During May we will view and discuss TED Talk videos. Sessions will include a Biblical commentary and questions related to the topic of the week.
Through the month of June we will tackle three social justice issues: 3rd- The Effect of Gun Violence; 10th- A representative from Moms Demand Action will share about their work for sensible gun reform; 17th- Addressing Predatory Loan Practices; and 24th- Focusing on current policy and practices, RE: Immigration.
Between the Lines- What are your favorite non-sacred songs that speak to you of God’s love and grace and goodness? We will listen to performances and discuss lyrics and compare them to scriptures from the Bible. We will also carry some of the suggested music into July’s worship services.
Beginning September 9, 2018 there will be two on-going classes:
“Feasting on the Word” Each week, while engaging with scriptures often used for morning worship, this group participation class seeks to answer 4 questions: WHAT is important to know? WHERE is God in these Words? SO WHAT does this mean for our lives? NOW WHAT is God’s word calling us to do? do? Meeting Space: Session Rm.
“The Wired Word” Adult Sunday school lessons that confront current news’ events with Scripture and hope. Meeting Space: The Wilds’ Building.
And, there will be one short-term class: “The History of Christianity” There are many reasons to study the history of Christianity. History gives us purpose. History gives us hope. History gives us theological grounding. But as much as anything, history reminds us that we live in the shadow of those who have come before and that those who follow will, in turn, look back to us. Facilitated by Erik Peterson.
