Adult Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Opportunities

Sunday morning Adult Faith Formation at 9:15 a.m. Here’s a look at our topics:

“Names for the Messiah” – In Fellowship Hall
For Advent we are studying “Names for the Messiah.” We will look at three royal titles: Wonderful Counselor, Mighty God, and Prince of Peace. How were these titles understood, how did –or didn’t—Jesus fulfill the title and how Christians interpret Jesus as representative of that title. It is an interesting Advent study. Come and join us. Led by Kim Williams.

A new study on Dietrich Bonhoeffer’s “Life Together” begins January 6, 2019. Led by Kim Williams.

Kings and Prophets – In Damascus (downstairs)
Join us downstairs for a look at how Israel’s Prophets dealt with the political authorities of their day. From Moses and Pharoah to Nathan and David, Elijah and The Omiride kings all the way to Isaiah and Ezekiel. We’re in for six hundred years of prophetic critique and monarchic hubris.  Led by Tom McEwen.

Faithful Parenting – In Memorial Hall (downstairs)
All parents wish to be the best parent they possibly can be for their children. Come explore and share what it means to raise your children in a Christian home and to share your faith with them. Led by Terry and Jim Ritter.

Mid-Week Opportunities

Java and Jesus
Java & Jesus, Women’s Bible study, meets Thursday mornings at 9:30 a.m. in Fellowship Hall. It is a great group of committed women from young moms to older women. It is a wonderful time of fellowship, prayer (and boy, can these women pray), support and learning together.

We begin a new Advent study on December 6. Come join us in a Bible study series that will inspire, encourage, and unlock our understanding of the Word of God. A new study will begin January 3, 2019. If you need child care please call Kim in the office and we will make the necessary arrangements. Join us and bring a friend or come and make new friends. If you haven’t been able to come yet, just jump in when you can. We will always have a seat for you and a cup of coffee too.

Lunch Bunch
We will meet at noon, Thursday, December 20 at Tuscany Tavern and at noon, Thursday, January 17, 2019 at Lakeshore Cafe. This is a no host lunch group for seniors, retirees, those who live alone, or just want to gather with others for lunch at a local restaurant. RSVP to the office.

Faith & Culture
Faith and Culture, Thursdays at 5:30 p.m. We gather in Fellowship Hall to discuss how our Christian Faith and today’s culture intersect. Come join us for a loving discussion of the things that weigh heavy on our hearts in this day and age. All Are Welcome.

The Mountain Men Bible Study
Mountain Men meets Wednesdays at 6:15 pm in the lover level Conference Room 2. Throughout the Bible, God meets folks on top of a mountain. These “mountaintop experiences” transform them for the rest of their lives. Mountain Men is a gathering of men, led by Connell O’Brien, who explore the ways our faith shapes our lives while digging into the Word of God.
