ADULT SUNDAY SCHOOL ~ 9:30 AM
The Heresies — Knowing Who We Are By What We Are Not: Fr. Michael & Rev. Katie are co-teaching a class on the ancient heresies, the Church’s response, and modern applications.
This class is held in the Parish Hall.
Lectionary Class: Dick Hooper leads a class that uses “Living the Good News” which looks at the readings used in church that Sunday. It is green or “ordinary” time in the church calendar, but the class will again discover that the parables are as fresh today as they were 2000 years ago. Come and see!
This class is held in the Parlor.
Sunday Adult Education Round Table:
The parables of Jesus have been inspiring people for over 2,000 years and challenging scholars from varied fields to study them. This fall our group will be reading, discussing and, hopefully, glimpsing new insights through Amy-Jill Levine’s book
Short Stories by Jesus.
Ms. Levine is a professor of New Testament and Jewish Studies at Vanderbilt Divinity School and offers insight about what the first listeners might have heard in Jesus’ parables. This week we will begin by looking at the Introduction, “How We Domesticate Jesus’s Provocative Stories” which covers pages 1-26. A limited supply of books have been ordered, but they are available through Amazon as paperback and for book readers. Having read the text for the day is not required in order to join the discussion. For more information you may contact David Starling by phone or text at (850) 712-0977 or email
This class meets upstairs in Rm. 32 of the Christian Education Building.
Led by David Starling.
Sunday Centering Prayer Group —
Centering Prayer is a method of silent prayer that prepares us to receive the gift of contemplative prayer, in which we experience God's presence within us. We begin by taking a few minutes to go over the basic guidelines of the practice for anyone who is new. We then sit together in the 20-minute prayer period, followed by a brief time for sharing and intercessory prayer. All are welcome — newcomers and experienced practitioners.
This class meets in the Centering Prayer room on the administrative hallway.
The facilitator is Joan White.
SUNDAY SCHOOL FOR YOUTH ~ 9:30 ~ 2nd floor Christian Ed Bldg.
Godly Play — PreK & K, Rm. 36; 1st & 2nd Grades, Rm. 37
For our youngest worshippers, we utilize the Godly Play curriculum to help the children explore their faith through wonder and play. Each week, a Bible story is told to the children using the Godly Play method, after which children utilize their "work time" to create something in response to the story.
Feasting on the Word — 3rd, 4th, & 5th Grades, Rm. 39
In our "transition class," children begin the bridge to middle school Sunday School through the use of the Feasting on the Word curriculum. Feasting on the Word provides a solid scriptural and theological base, inviting leaders and learners with the opportunity for a deeper understanding of common Bible passages. This program utilizes a mixture of scripture readings, discussion, visual art, and multimedia resources to create an engaging educational setting for our learners.
