Sunday School groups are an essential part of our church, as they provide a place where deeper fellowship and better support for one another can take place. Considering that the early church worshipped in large settings in the synagogues, as well as in homes, we unite together similarly in order to be in deeper fellowship with God and one another. God has reconciled us not only to Himself but also to each other. This "each other" is called His Church.
The Parables adult Sunday School class, which will celebrate its 50th birthday, in 2024, has a history of a variety of studies. Currently we are examining “Bible Stories for Grownups: Reading Scripture with New Eyes” by Josh Scott. This video-enhanced study has led to some lively and interesting discussions. Coming up this Sunday is “It’s Not About the Fish: the Story of Jonah .” Come join us!!
We, the “Voices” Sunday School Class, are a multi-generational, open-minded and informal gathering of people who come together to develop and grow in our Christian walks by exploring what it means to live a Christian life in our world today.
We do so by engaging in and actively sharing in weekly class discussions on thought-provoking issues and topics. At times, we explore contemporary issues, and at other times we focus on deepening our understanding of our Christian faith. To this end, we use a variety of sources including books, articles, and DVD series featuring major theologians and/or religious historians of our day. Our approach is inclusive and non-traditional. Ultimately, we believe that Jesus calls us to care for our neighbors through action.
Currently, we are studying Living the Questions: The Wisdom of Progressive Christianity by David M. Felten and Jeff Procter-Murphy (2012 ed.). Based on a series of interviews with top Biblical scholars and church leaders, this is a study for those who are looking for a faith conversation about Scripture that encourages questions and open dialogue, as opposed to belief in absolute certainties. It is a study for those who are seeking to peel away the layers of long-held religious assumptions to reach a deeper understanding of a faith that is dynamic and alive.
If you think this is a class that might interest you, we would love to have you join us. College students are welcome!
THE LIVING WORD CLASS INVITES YOU TO THEIR NEW STUDY
The Living Word Sunday School Class will continue to meet in the Wesley library as we move to 2 worship services.
Grab some goodies at Hospitality Time and bring them to the library from 9:45-10:45 every Sunday morning.
This 3-month Adult Bible Study is entitled "God Provides" and deals with our present culture with so many issues that cause us to wonder what the world is coming to. "God Provides" will help you find an answer for your own needs and worries and ways to help others find that answer as well. Please give our class a try. You'll be glad you did!
