The Future of Faith study 
On Sunday mornings, at 9:00am in Board Hall, we have started a new course of study called The Future of Faith.  It covers a wide range of interconnected topics vital to our Christian mission, our everyday lives, and our world. For instance, what does it mean to be a Christian in the 21st Century?  With advances in technology like artificial intelligence, cybernetics, nanotechnology, and gene editing, how might the meaning of being human change?  What are the theological implications of these developments?  And underneath the technology, what is the relationship between science and religion itself? Are they mutually exclusive realms of thought, competitors, potential collaborators?   
 
We'll look at the classics, like Genesis 1 vs. the Big Bang Theory & Evolution. What of our mission field, in which over the past 4 generations, each subsequent one is half as likely to participate in a faith community than the one that went before it?  Why has this happened, and how does the Church address the needs or arouse the curiosity of the "spiritual but not religious"?  
 
These are my questions.  What are yours?
2019 Contribution Envelopes
are available at both main entrances to the church.  
 
Please be sure to sign your name (legibly) AND the envelope box number on the sheets provided. If you don't, we have no way of identifying your cash donations.

Thank you!

An Invitation from the Brothers 
On Saturday, February 2, everyone is invited to join St. Like's Brotherhood of St. Andrew's (BOSA's) men in a presentation by Dr. Charles Webb on "Cancer in Men." Come for breakfast with the Brotherhood at 8:30AM, followed by Dr. Webb's presentation at 9:00AM, both in Board Hall, on the west side of the church. There's no denying the challenges facing us all with our health today. Please join Dr. Webb as he speaks of ways to be aware of changes in our bodies, and courses of treatment for Cancer in Men.
