Check out what our ongoing adult Church School classes will be studying this fall:
Bible Roundtable | Room 207
Missionary, theologian, and religious genius, Paul is one of the most powerful human personalities in the history of the Church. Many of us are familiar with the letters written by the Apostle Paul, but what do we know of Paul the man? This year we will first explore the life, mission, and thought of the apostle Paul before exploring one of his letters. Whatever your level of knowledge and experience of Paul, you will find this class insightful and compelling.
Sojourners | Room 208
Parker J. Palmer quickens our instinct to seek the common good and gives us the tools to do it. This timely, courageous, and practical work – intensely personal as well as political – is not about them, “those people” in Washington D.C., or in our state capitals, on whom we blame our political problems. It’s about us, “We the People,” and what we can do in everyday settings like families, neighborhoods, classrooms, congregations, and workplaces to resist divide-and-conquer politics and restore a government “of the people, by the people, for the people.”
The Present Word | Room 105 (thru 10/8)
This quarter offers studies on the theme “Covenant with God.” It considers the major covenants that God makes with people on behalf of the earth and the human community. Beginning with Noah, God promises benevolence toward creation. Similar commitments are made with Abram, Phinehas, and Ezekiel. Ultimately, the covenant forms the foundation for the coming Messiah and salvation for the world.
