ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL OPTIONS:
Young Adult Class – Room 215 Class Coordinators: Angie & Dan Urban
Building on the ideas we explored this fall, the Young Adult class will consider what it takes to “Start Becoming a Good Samaritan” through a six-week video series from Michael Seaton in partnership with World Vision that considers poverty, social injustice, pandemic diseases and the environment. Discussion will center on commonsense ideas to live out your faith in ways that will change our community.
Men’s Bible Study – Lillian Martin Room Class Facilitators: David Dawson & Wally King
The men are following Paul to Athens where he addresses the “academics” of his day in the center of Western philosophy (which is foundational to our society today). From there they continue in Acts 18 where Paul challenges the religious and political mainstream (with deep similarities to our present situation) as he travels to Corinth and Ephesus.
SALT Class – Room 109 Class Coordinator: Jim Hines
SALT is reading and discussing Creative Faith, Religion as a Way of Worldmaking, by Don Cupitt. In this book, Cupitt proposes a shift in emphasis in Christian practice from self-purification to ethical rigor, a shift from a heaven-obsessed theology (to) a new theology of moral striving. No longer need Christians aim to conserve the self, preparing for eternity: they must simply expend it, by living generously.
SALT meets in the southwest alcove of the social hall. All are welcome.
Adult – Room 214 Teacher: Rev. Brad Walters
Beginning April 8 - Mere Christianity
In this eight-session video group study, facilitated by Brad Walters, you will discover why Mere Christianity by C.S. Lewis is one of the most read and beloved Christian books of all time. But seventy years later from when it was first delivered on radio, what relevance does it have to our world today? Eric Metaxas and a variety of Christian leaders-including Philip Yancey, Alister McGrath, Devin Brown, Paul McCusker, Douglas Gresham, and others-help us understand the timeless message of C.S. Lewis in fresh ways for a new generation.
The first pupose of this video study is to explore the positive ideas that C.S. Lewis has so eloquently written about in Mere Christianity for those who already call themselves Christian. The second purpose is to explain in an engaging, winsome and non-threathening way the basic tenets of the Christian faith as illustrated by C.S. Lewis to those who do not claim to be Christian. This study aims to fulfill the vision of C.S. Lewis of reaching people from all faith backgrounds.
Join us each Sunday, April 8 through May 13 from 9:15-10:15 a.m.
