Sunday's Worship

"Generation to Generation"

How does faith get passed on? This two-week sermon series is built around the promise of God in Psalm 119:90, that his faithfulness will endure from generation to generation. Whether you have never felt more connected to Christ or are floundering in your faith, you will learn how faith is both taught and caught. 

This Sunday, May 22
Faith is Taught
2 Timothy 1:3-7

In case you missed last week's worship,
you can watch here.

The Genesis Story: Reading Biblical Narratives
Deepen your understanding of the meaning and beauty of the first book of the Bible.

Series concludes this Sunday, May 22
10:30 a.m. in Stewart Hall
Genesis is a book of fundamental importance for the Jewish and Christian faiths and has exerted a profound influence on Western Civilization. In addition to being a great religious text, it is also a literary masterpiece. This class explores some of the work’s major narrative themes, including the complex relationship between God and humanity, the consequences of a rupture in that relationship, and the path towards reconciliation. Join Professor Justin Jackson of Hillsdale College in this class as he analyzes the story of Joseph.
This Sunday's Adult Education will be the last class for spring, with classes resuming in the fall. The Pastor's Bible Study will run throughout the summer, on Wednesday evenings, starting June 1.
