Embracing Transformation

Sunday Morning Adult Formation 2018-2019

This year’s theme for Sunday mornings will challenge us to embrace the transformations within ourselves, within the church, and within the world at large. What can we learn from those in the past who have gone through similar transformations in their lives? Through embracing our transformations, we can serve God more fully and learn more about our faith and ourselves.

Reading and Learning the Bible

Old Testament Class | September 2018-April 2019

Every year, Pastor Larry Hayward leads an in-depth course focused on reading the Bible, alternating between the Old and New Testaments. In the class, you will read the entire Testament, learning the basic content of the book and exploring the text in detail. Together with the class, you’ll reflect on how those texts and the Bible as a whole impact our faith and life. Learn what it means to say the Bible has “authority,” is “inspired,” is the “word of God,” and is the “unique and authoritative witness to Christ.”

Thursday Morning Study Group

February 7-April 11, 2019

Thursdays, 9:30–11:30 AM in Haverkamp Room | The group will be discussing the wide variety of early Christian writings that were not canonized into the New Testament. These works often look like, draw from, and expand upon New Testament writing and reveal the amazing diversity of ancient and medieval Christianity and the vitality of Christian storytelling over the centuries. We will be using a Great Courses DVD Series “The Apocryphal Jesus” by Dr. David Bakke, an Indiana University Professor and author. The Study Group is open to anyone who is interested and able to attend. There is no cost for the class.

Join the Adult Formation Team!

It takes a vital community to plan our Adult Formation classes and programs. The Adult Formation team explores many options and together we choose topics, formats, and programs that challenge us to question and explore our faith and to grow in the love of Christ. Many hands are required to continue our high quality adult education. I invite you to join us in planning and brainstorming! Call or email Amey Upton to see how you might be able to help.
