Join us on Sunday morning, May 12, 9:30-10:30 for an adult Sunday School class. There are a variety of opportunities to choose from, and each class is open to newcomers!

Mindful   Parenting,  Lounge:  Each week, the group discusses ideas about parenting from current resources. The simple format includes the following: prayer, brief check-in, summary of the book or article being shared, and a discussion on prepared questions. We welcome novice and experienced parents alike looking to share laughter, support, and hope in the journey of parenting. 

The Bible and The New York Times , Sunroom:  Ashley Nissler will lead a discussion on Anita Hill: Let’s Talk About How to End Sexual Violence.

Finding Myself on a Journey , Chapel:  Meredith Bratcher guides this Bible-based experiential learning and life reflection class. This Sunday, the passage to be considered is  John 10:22-30.

It’s Not Just One Way , Room 17:  Each week in this class, an individual or couple shares their spiritual journey with the group.

English as a Second Language and Christianity , Room 18:  Bo Lloyd leads the class in an engaging study of Christian faith, while also helping participants improve English vocabulary and fluency.

Alice Ammerman, Professor of Nutrition at UNC and Director of UNC’s Center for Health Promotion and Disease Prevention has (with a team of current and former students) created “Good Bowls.” These bowls provide lower-income consumers in rural areas and “food deserts” with “ready to heat-and-eat” healthful, locally sourced foods that are frozen for longer shelf life. Join us to hear Alice’s amazing vision for food equity in North Carolina and beyond. Check ‘Event’ in the Friendship Register or let the office know you are coming by noon on Monday, May 13.

May Challenge
Personal/Family Sustainability Proclamations
  Our May Challenge is for each member or friend of Binkley to craft a Personal and/or Family Proclamation of Sustainability that can help guide your actions regarding Earth Care, especially as the time for vacations and travel is
approaching. Only if we are mindful of our daily decisions can we live in greater harmony with Mother Earth.
At a Wednesday Night dinner in the Fall, we will be asking individual and family volunteers to share their Proclamations.

You can read Binkley's Proclamation of Sustainability here .
