Are you interested in…
…the Seven Deadly Sins?
Have you ever felt in yourself any of the “seven deadly sins” of envy, vainglory, sloth, avarice, anger, gluttony, and lust? (Good to have your attention!) Would you like to learn more about the surprising ways that these “capital vices” show up in our day, and the way that scripture speaks of their remedies? Join in a summer Sunday School class, open to all, in the Fellowship Hall between May 10 and August 16. Teachers will include Warren Kinghorn, Betsy Poole, Janise Smith, and Brett McCarty. Located in the Fellowship Hall (adjacent to Sanctuary). Contact: Warren Kinghorn.
…experiencing Scripture with people of all ages?
This summer, everyone will have the opportunity to explore God’s story with a child. We are going to create a special place during the Sunday School hour where you can consider God’s word and spend time engaging your heart with His story. The Elementary Hallway will be transformed each week into a series of “stations” centered on one story from the Old Testament. Rooms will include multi-sensory ways to engage with scripture through quiet reading, prayer, art, and food. All ages are welcome and encouraged to participate. Located on the Elementary Hallway. Contact: Traci Hoover and Beth Solie.
…navigating young adult and college life?
The Young Adult Community gathers in the Parlor each Sunday for fellowship, food, prayer, and scripture study. This summer, the College Ministry will be ‘rolled in’ with the Young Adults. Single or married, graduate student, young professional, or in transition, all are welcome! Located in Room 201 (Community Room behind the Library). Contact: Goodie Bell and Beth Hilliard.
…the theology of C.S. Lewis?
The Faith Seeking Understanding class will continue the study of the theology of C.S. Lewis this spring. We will look at Lewis’s thoughts as if he were a systematic theologian. Many books have attempted to impose system on Lewis’s thought and we will follow on the heels of those attempts. Located in Room 402 (4th Floor). Contact: Russ Congleton.
…studying the Greek language?
Join the Greek Reading Class as we study the Gospel of Luke in Greek. We take turns reading a sentence out loud and interpreting it with help of the group. Don’t worry if you are rusty or self-taught. If you can struggle your way through simple Greek sentences, we can work out the meaning together. Located in Room 211 (David Dunderdale’s Office). Contact: Jonathan Robie.
…Christ and community?
Come to the Community Class to discuss life together and the practical implications of scripture in Christian community and culture. We do this by exploring scripture and Christian commentary that is chosen to compliment the sermon series. The class format includes readings to provoke discussion and encourage the sharing of personal experiences and ideas. Located in Room 401 (4th floor). Contact: Rudy Renfer and Don Grigg.
…the Kingdom of God according to Luke?
The Growing in Grace Class is continuing a study on the Kingdom of God, looking at what Jesus preached as recorded by Luke and how the early church interpreted his words and put it into action as Luke recorded them in the book of Acts. Located in Room 405 (Upper Room, 4th floor). Contact: Paul Immanuel.
The Crossroads Sunday School class is continuing a conversation on Christian-Muslim relations. Specifically, New Testament examples that can inform how we relate to Muslims, a historical overview of the relationship between Islam and Christianity, spiritual and theological common ground between Christians and Muslims, and more. For more information contact Location: Room 103 (Choir Room, Commons) through June 7, and Room 404 (4th Floor) through August. Contact: Bisharah Libbus.
