Practices for a Discipling Community Leaders: Trevor Durbin & Pam Buck
We all long for community, but many of us are lacking in experience of what it looks like or how it works. Using Christine Pohl’s book Living into Community: Cultivating Practices that Sustain Us as a guide, we will work through points of discussion, personal stories, and practical ideas concerning community, issues we could face, and how to grow a thriving space for ourselves and others.
The Prodigal with a Twist Leader: Clark Kidwell
Both Esteban Murillo and Rembrandt painted masterpieces of the parable of the prodigal son but with different emphasis. Using a Middle Eastern cultural focus we’re going to look this parable in Luke 15 through Eastern eyes as the first century would understand it then through Western 21st century eyes. In addition, Islam considers this parable to be a major proof that Christianity has corrupted the scripture. We’ll take a look at this debate as well.
Come join us for the fun of learning and discussion.
Taste and See: Leader: Diane Gornik
Taste and See: Discovering God Among Butchers, Bakers, and Fresh Food Makers, by Margaret Feinberg
Taste and See is a delicious read that includes dozens of recipes for those who, like Margaret, believe some of life's richest moments are spent savoring a meal with those you love ...Perhaps God's foodie focus is meant to do more than satisfy our bellies. It's meant to heal our souls, as we learn to taste and see the goodness of God together. After all, food is God's love made edible.” Women, come join Diane exploring God’s love of food and His use of it in the lives of His people.
FOR STUDENTS H.S. and M.S.
Join Dora, Carson, Jim, and Jane this Fall as we explore what the Bible tells us about Spiritual Beings. What exactly are Angels? What is the Divine council? Who is Satan? What are demons? We will watch The Bible Project Mini Series on Spiritual Beings and discuss the videos together.
This is a very eye opening series! We will finish the semester by talking about Spiritual Warfare 101.
