The Art of Neighboring...

April 8 - May 20, 2018
(excluding April 29, 2018)
9:45 am - Library

We will be studying the book, "The Art of Neighboring, Building Genuine Relationships Right Outside Your Door," by Jay Pathak and Dave Runyon, in this spring's Sunday school term. The book provides practical advice on how to be intentional about living out the great commandment to love our neighbors, especially neighbors living nearby. 

The class will be informal with little or no lecture, and will utilize study guide questions for each lesson. Because this book will be used as the basis for a sermon series this summer, joining the discussion this spring may allow you to get more out of the sermon series.
500 Years of Reformation and Counting......
April 8 - May 20, 2018
(excluding April 29, 2018)
9:45 am - Room 109

Last year we marked the 500th anniversary of the Reformation really taking off with Martin Luther's nailing the 95 theses on the church door. We saw how now after 500 years, we still are affected by the changes that spread throughout Europe and by extension into the lands that Europeans colonized. We used DVDs called "This Changed Everything", "John Knox", "Zwingli and Calvin", "A Man Named Martin", and "Amazing Grace" to study both the lives and the impact of the reformers. This spring will continue with a new DVD presenting a Catholic look at the reformation years, their own reformers, and their impact today."

Facilitated by: Sylvia Harris
