The Adult Sunday School class meets every Sunday during the school year from 10:10 to 10:55 am. The discussion leader develops questions around one or more of the readings from the services that week. People who have expressed an interest in the class are sent the verses and questions several days before class. However, no previous knowledge or information is necessary to attend. Our goal is that folks feel very comfortable dropping in and joining the conversation.
This is a dynamic and interactive class taught not by a single teacher but by the whole class. We discuss the verses and questions, explore what we don’t understand and discuss what the verses mean to us. This approach deepens our understanding of the Bible, fosters a desire to learn more, and results in a deeper, faith-based relationship among those in the class and inspires us toward action. All are welcome. For more information please contact Steve Allenby (firstname.lastname@example.org) with any questions.
Wednesday Morning Bible Study
Wednesday morning Bible Study meets each Wednesday morning at 10:00. Our first priority at Bible study is to expect what we read to transform us. Our goal is to not only become more familiar with what the Bible says, but to consider how these timeless texts apply to the church and our lives today. For more information please contact the church office at 526-6511.
SHARING OUR SPIRITUAL JOURNEY FOR EVERYDAY PEOPLE
9:00 am Sunday Mornings — Class will be running through November
There are some who travel with certainty on a spiritual path to God via a superhighway. They have a scholar’s grasp of the Bible, and enjoy discussing and debating the correct interpretation of scripture in some depth. There are others, like myself, whose path is a dirt road filled with detours and doubt. We, on occasion, feel like we are on the outside looking in, and we cannot find the door.
You are invited to join a writing group for everyday people, poor spellers and all, and together we will explore our spiritual journey. The door is wherever you are right now. I personally still use a pen and paper as my primary writing tool. Others are skilled using a computer as their only instrument. Both are acceptable, as only you will see the final result.
Participants will be given a suggestion or a prompt to help you write a snapshot of your spiritual path. An example is: Who was the person in your life who was most influential in leading you to church. After writing, each person will be given an opportunity to read their offering without questions or interruption. The sharing and the listening are the means that help us move forward on our spiritual path.
As in any sharing, some will write a page, some an outline of thoughts, and still others a detailed explanation. The important learning is to hear yourself in order to know yourself. There is something encouraging, something healing, in the singular act of being heard.
We commit to meet one hour per week for four weeks. We will then evaluate our progress, and decide if we wish to continue.
Allow us to be a part of your spiritual journey.
