Adult Faith Formation

Sunday Morning Opportunities

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

Exploring the Book of Acts – In Fellowship Hall
The Holy Spirit is clearly at work in Acts, pouring out on people from many nations on the day of Pentecost, giving Jesus’ disciples the power to speak boldly, gathering early believers together for worship, and sending out Peter and Paul as missionaries. In this course, participants will examine the beginnings of the church and will find meaningful connections between the early church and the church today. Led by Pastor Vera and Pastoral Intern Rachel.

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 are studying “Journey through the Gospel of Luke”. The Java & Jesus fall study will not just journey through the Gospel of Luke but it will give you the tools to study and understand scripture. Come join us in a Bible study series that will inspire, encourage, and unlock our understanding of the Word of God. 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, September 20 at the Murphy’s Mountain Grill on main street Evergreen. 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. 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.
