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 (email@example.com) with any questions.
Sunday, June 8, 2014 Adult Class
Last Sunday we talked about what it means for our lives to be “green and blossoming.” See Matthew, Chapter 3, Verses 7-17. We ended the class by discussing whether a quote from Fred Buechner summed up what a green and blossoming life might look like. Buechner said:
“The place God calls you to is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.”
There seemed to be a general agreement that Buechner was on to something! We asked everyone to take time this week to think about where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger might intersect and to come to class with two or three examples of where this might occur. This intersection does not need to epic – but it should be something that will give you great joy to pursue.
This week, we will combine our class with the high school and junior high class to further explore how we can help ourselves and each other live more green and blossoming lives. We have a fun, interactive time planned and hope you can make it.
We will begin with a short video so please be at class by 10:15 sharp or you will be very sad that you missed it! Also, given the interactive nature of the class it is important that you be there on time. We will be meeting in our usual classroom downstairs. See you on Sunday!
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.
