Mission Theme for Christian Education this year: “Do, Love, Walk with Jesus” based on Micah 6:8 : Micah 6:8 New Revised Standard Version (NRSV)
8 He has told you, O mortal, what is good;
and what does the Lord require of you
but to do justice, and to love kindness,
and to walk humbly with your God?
Our educational focus this year will be on how we can impact the world around us by doing justice, loving kindness and walking humbly with our God. We invite you to join us on September 28 at 9:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. for our All Church Retreat “Do, Love, Walk” with guest retreat leader Linda Harding.
There are two Adult Education Classes to choose from:
Feasting on the Word is a Bible study class that focuses on the lectionary passages for each Sunday. Facilitators lead discussion based around the scriptures for the day, how it relates to the context it was written in and what the relevance is for our context today. No preparation necessary, all are invited to join us! Meets in Old Fellowship Hall
Teachers are Monty Bryant, Helen Imbrock and Mary Todd Peters
The Power of Love: Sermons, reflections, and wisdom to uplift and inspire by Bishop Michael Curry. To go with our “Do, Love, Walk” mission theme, our second adult class will be reading and discussing these sermons by Bishop Michael Curry. Bishop Curry says “I hope you recognize love as the most powerful force for personal change and for changing the world around us. The way of Love—the love and power of God—is the key to our hope and to our future.
This will be the first book we will read. The next book will be Interrupted: When Jesus Wrecks Your Comfortable Christianity by Jen Hatmaker. “Is there more to faith than just safe and sequestered, predictable and boring?” Jen Hatmaker will engage and inspire you to go beyond comfortable and answer for yourself this question.
This class requires preparation for discussions each Sunday. Books will be provided. Meets in the Parlor. Teachers: Kerri Hefner and Claire Capps
