Conversations Class
Frances Browne Dining Room P212
Belonging Matters
led by Garrell Keesler and Lisa Cashion, LPT
We all belong to something - to a business team, an alumni base, a family, to ourselves and to God.  While everyone wants to do it, belonging to anything carries both benefits and challenges. Over 4 weeks we’ll explore how belonging affects personal identity, how culture influences our decisions to join groups, how systems of families and communities follow certain rules of belonging, and how belonging can actually divide us.

This class uses its round-table setting to exchange ideas from the day's lesson about understanding Scripture and applying it to our lives. 
Passages Class
Pattie Cole Room S203
 The Disciples Become Apostles
led by Mary Margaret Porter
Have you ever wondered what happened to the disciples after Jesus' death and resurrection? What do we know? What does legend tell us? How have they influenced our faith, or not? Join us for 5 weeks as we discover what we know about the lives of the early apostles.

This class presents rotating topics that invite exploration of Scripture and ways of living the faith personally and for the world. Teaching and discussion are attentive to the needs and interests of those who are navigating mid-life passages, but
the class is open to all.
Good Samaritan Class will join with Conversations for September
